Ash Class

                          Hello Ash Class!                         


I have filled this page with lots of learning activities for you to enjoy together at home. 


Please do not feel you have to complete everything I have put up. At the very least, please have a go at a phonics activity and a maths activity each day. 


When your child is playing, try to play with them as your input really helps to develop their language and vocabulary. Asking them questions is a great place to start and they will start to direct you - they love it when they feel like they are in charge!


The timetable is a suggestion only. Feel free to create a timetable that works for you at home. Please do remember, children thrive with structure (each of our days at school have very much the same timetable). 


Please contact me if you have any questions, worries or some pictures to share.


Miss Berrington heart

I love seeing all the brilliant activities you are getting up to at home. 

Please continue to upload photos and observations on Tapestry - that way I can have a look and add it to your child's learning journal. 

Try to upload one activity a day (at least 3 per week).

EVERYDAY - Please practice writing your own name.

You could use: pens, pencils, different colours

If you need help:                                         

  • trace it                                                                                    
  • copy it
  • write it 


    *Week 3 Activity Menu*    


I have put together these activities for you to have a go at this week. They each cover various aspects of the EYFS curriculum including maths and literacy. They are all fairly straightforward but I have added in some questions for you to ask your child and some ways you could extend the activity if they are enjoying it. 


It would be lovely to see photos of some of these activities and with your permission I could create a gallery so you can see what each other is enjoying at home. I might have a go at some of them myself!
