Welcome to Reception!
We will be using this page to upload any home learning activities. Please still use Tapestry to keep us updated on how your home learning is going and any activities you are enjoying together as a family.
EYFS development is mainly learning through play. Our home learning will have a mix of structured activities as well as using the world around us to develop life skills.
Things children could be doing on a daily basis:
Getting themselves dressed and undressed independently. (Physical Development) Can they rehearse doing zips and buttons as well as turning their clothes around if inside out?
Laying the table: (Mathematical Development) Counting out the correct number of knives, forks, spoons, mats etc.
Reading stories and looking at books: (Literacy/ Communication and Language): What is the story about? Did you enjoy it? Why? How are the characters feeling? What might happen next? Your could also look at non-fiction books - what page is ___ on? Can you find that page? Read the glossary to learn what new words mean.
Spring: (Understanding the World) If you have a garden - keep a look out for the changes that happen in spring. What changes can we see? What is happening? You may even want to do some planting, gardening or watering the plants.
