* Your outdoor activity should take place in your garden or during your ONE trip outside of your house for exercise. Your indoor and outdoor activity could be linked to history / geography / science / computing / music / PE / art / design tech or food tech. Maybe try a different subject each day.

During this time, when children may not be in school, we have devised some suggested home-learning activities that you could complete at home to support your children’s learning, leisure time and routines.

For Parents/Carers: - Create a weekly timetable with your child to decide on which subjects to practice with your child each day. - Create a daily timetable. Routines are important for children.


  • - Limit screen time. Use the IPad, phone or TV for short periods of time to break up the day. -



  • Play games with your children.
  • Some suggestions: Card games, pen and paper games (hangman or noughts & crosses)
  • Art activities linked to nature (drawings of trees or plants or a sketch of your local area)
  • Create or invent a recipe to make with your child.

  • For children: Each child will be provided with log in details for the following websites:
  • Active Learn to support phonics and reading
  • LGFL which has Busy Things -


  • The Year 1 curriculum is covered in the CGP books. Please work through and try to complete the homework books with your child.


  • During Phase 4, adjacent consonants are taught e.g. fr(frog), dr(drip), nd(mend).
  • These are introduced alongside the phase 2 and 3 sounds already taught in order to extend your child’s vocabulary.
  • bench splash truth string train green fright float broom crook
    clown spoil burnt stairs picture flower stork vent jinx went
  • By the end of Phase 4 children should be able to read 14 more Tricky words.
  • some come one said do when have there out like so were little what

    phase 2 and 3. (the, to, I, no, go, he, she, we, me, be, was, my,

Links to support Music at home

The BMS ​Music’sCool teaching team have been working hard and have created an online resource site that can be used by parents and children at home. It has a page for each year group and a separate page for each Music’sCool school.

You will need to complete a very simple sign up process to get access to the site: https://forms.gle/8Er3aRGurbrrURfA7  

This is a brilliant resource and we recommend you use it with your child at home, it'll be a lot of fun learning new songs together.








Experiment with creating your own rhythms and mixing percussion instruments. 



Use a range of funky sample sounds to create your own piece of music.
