EYFS Home Learning

Please find below some websites which your child may like to use to learn at home. Please email if you have any questions about home learning.

Communication and Language

In our Early Years we believe that developing communication and language skills is fundamental to child development. We prioritise developing these skills to ensure all of our children can meet their potential throughout their lives. Please see the poster below to find out what the key milestones for communication and language are. If you have any concerns about your child's development, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.

In our Early Years setting we use dough disco to help build finger strength and to help connect our fingers to our brains! This will help us to be better writers when we are ready to start holding a pencil.

Take a look below at our Parent's Guide to Dough Disco to see how you can help your child at home!

Daily Challenges

  Below is a list of activities you could complete daily to help your child continue learning at home.

1) Practise writing their name.

2) Count to 20 forwards and backwards

3) Read a story together and chat about what it was about.

4) Go on a sound hunt - give your child a sound e.g. m. Ask them to hunt around the house to find objects beginning with that sound.

5) Make up a story and ask your child to add ideas and to tell you what might happen next.

6) Look for shapes around your home and name them. Encourage children to look for 3D shapes too, e.g. cube, cylinder, pyramid.

7) Go for a walk (unless isolating) and talk about what you see.

8) Visit the web pages above and complete a game.

9) Practise writing letters and numbers correctly.

10) Ask your child to help with daily chores e.g. washing up and talk about what they are doing.

EYFS Phonics

Please find below the letters we would be learning in nursery and reception. This document shows you how to say the sound correctly, how to do the action to help your child remember the sound, the Read, Write Inc. image and the ditty to help you write the letter. Have fun leaning all of them while learning at home!
