As well as the tasks in your child's home learning pack, links to activities which will support your child's learning will be added to this page at regular intervals throughout the school closure.
A few extra activities you can do with your child which will help them become school ready (for September 2020 starters):
play games, role play and complete jigsaws together
singing songs, nursery and finger rhymes and making time for talk
look for bugs and signs of spring in the garden
continue to read with and to your child, everyday if you can
support your child’s self-help skills so that they learn to do things for themselves such as; encouraging your child to wash their hands, go to the toilet and have a go at learning how to do their zip up on their coat
recognising and talking through your child’s feelings and different emotions
make junk models with recyclable materials
practise recognising and writing their name
teach your child how to use a knife and fork or open packets and bags ready for school lunches
