Home Learning

Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) learn best when they can play, explore and learn about things that interest them and in school children have lots of time and space to do this. Below you will find some links and information that you can access on a daily basis to support your child's learning at home. There will also be some directed activities below that you can do with your child.  

Term 4 

Week 5 - Baptism

Week 4

This week we have started learning about baptism in school. Can you draw a picture and label the people in your family? Who is in God's family? 

Week 3

Look at the pictures. Can you use them to retell the Christmas story so far? You could cut them out and stick them in order. Why is the Christmas story important to you?

Week 2 - The Christmas Story

Watch the video of the Angel Gabriel telling Mary that she is going to have a special baby called Jesus. Have you ever been asked to do an important job? Do you always have to say yes?

Here is some more of the Christmas story: 

Imagine that you were a shepherd and you went to Bethlehem to meet baby Jesus. What would you say when you arrived at the stable? 

Week 1 - Happy New Year!

Have a look at the New Year fireworks and listen to Big Ben Chime!

New Year fireworks watched by 10 million viewers on BBC One - BBC News

You could talk about how many months there are in the year and learn the names in a rhyme:


January, February, March and April,

May, June, July and August,

September, October, November, December,

Twelve months of the year!


Which months are special to you or your family? What happens in the different months? Have you got any new years resolutions? You could decorate this 2021 banner with fireworks, balloons and patterns.
