During this uncertain time, we want your child to continue their learning at home through as many practical and imaginative ways as possible. We will provide lots of different resources to help guide their learning and hope that you enjoy the time spent with your child to support their education. Many of the activities can be completed independently, some may require a little bit of adult support. We will continue to update the website with new ideas throughout the upcoming weeks/months to ensure your child remains engaged with their learning.
As well as our home learning packs, we have provided below a selection of additional learning tasks. We appreciate that not everyone will be able to print these off however, you should still be able to access the tasks by following the instructions on screen.
Encourage the children to make instruments with things from around the house. This was an activity we did in Nursery with a few children before we closed and they loved it!
