For any children isolating at home due to COVID-19 related issues, home learning will be provided here daily; closely matched to the learning taking place in school. Paper copies can be provided on request. For families that have no access to technology we may be able to loan a Kindle Fire tablet in addition to paper copies.
Please record all activities that you complete as an observation on Tapestry with a description of what your child has achieved and attach any helpful videos or photographs that will help Mrs Wills to see their learning.
If you have any questions or queries then please email: email@example.com
As you may be aware, the Early Years curriculum revolves around play-based learning and we encourage you to provide opportunities throughout the day to allow your child to select an activity of their choice and simply spend time playing with and talking to them.
Home Learning Ideas
At this point in the year, the children are accessing continuous provision and spending most of their time Learning Through Play and so we encourage you to spend the majority of the day talking to you child and playing with them in ways that they initiate.
Below are a selection of activities which you could do to support your child, on top of their play.
We do not expect you to complete more that a few of these a day but please contact Mrs Wills is you require more ideas.

In EYFS, the majority of learning takes place in a child-initiated manner. This means that the children often choose what they activities they want to do and when. For this reason, I will not include a set timetable for each day and would rather you work around your child; allow your child to take breaks and engage in free play if needed and then complete set learning tasks and lessons together throughout your day.
