Reception - CUBS and KITTENS - Early Years Foundation Stage
Home learning activities and advice for Reception
Here we have prepared a collection of activities, websites and resources for your children to complete if they are at home due to self isolation or a school closure. In the case of a whole school closure we will be sending a workbook for children to record their work in as well as a some paper based home learning activities for them to complete.
Animal Learning Project
Our next topic called All Creatures Great and Small, which is all about different types of animals. Whilst you are at home we would like you to find out about lots of different animals. We have put together some activities for you to explore and research.
Here is a link to live streams of zoos around the world

Reading, Phonics and Spelling
In the event of school closing we will be sending pupils home with a selection of reading books at their level; it is important that children continue to read as often as possible at home.
Here is a list of web pages where the children can continue to practise their phonics and spelling skills from home.
