We use several songs from YouTube to help the children with their learning and have been providing these in some of our weekly lessons. We check these, before links are provided for use. Please be aware that when your child is using the YouTube links they need adult supervision as this site has age restrictions and, as a result, should not be used independently by your child,

Here are a few ideas of easy things you could be doing daily with your child while they are not at school.
If you click on the weekly page links, we will be adding more websites for online games and other ideas/projects!
Learning at Home
See if you can do this with your child every day, or set them off on each of these tasks with their sibling or their teddies:
Share a story you can read a story to your child and ask them lots of questions about what you have read together. Can they point to some of the words (the, no, go, to, into, I)
Read to you can you write lots of simple words or sentences for your child to read out loud to you (e.g. I can hop. My Mum is fun. The tree is high. The snow is cold.)
Count every day find some objects to count (lego pieces, pasta, pebbles, sticks, balls of playdough). Write the numbers 0 – 20 on small pieces of paper. Ask your child to read them every day and put them in order from smallest to biggest, jumble them up then put them in order from biggest to smallest! If this is tricky start with 0 – 6, then 0 – 10, building up to 0 – 20.
Write a diary during this time off school ask your child to write a sentence or two every day about anything they like! They could write a sentence about their day or write about their favourite toys.
Play a game! Great for turn taking, counting, understanding and learning. If you don’t have many games, you could design and make up your own board game. Be as creative as you like!
Sing a song go online and find some songs to sing together. Learn a new song every week and record yourself singing, send it to your Granny or a friend!
Do some exercise! during the school closure Joe Wicks, The Body Coach is going to be running a 30 minute PE session on YouTube, Monday to Friday at 9am for children of all ages and abilities.
