Recommended Reading List

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.
