EYFS Home Learning
We have put together some ideas and links to websites that might be helpful when learning at home.
We have attached the Early Learning Goals so you know the objectives children are working towards by the end of EYFS.
Please keep helping your children to read and write the phonemes introduced at school. Please see our weekly letter we send out each Friday about what we will be learning the following week on class dojo. Please continue to read the reading books which are sent home and the Oxford Owl e-books which are assigned each week. These need to be read at least 4 times.
Phonics Play is a brilliant website for fun games to promote reading. Please select Phase 2 games first before moving onto Phase 3. We particularly enjoy the ‘Pick a Picture’ game in class! Practising tricky words will help your child when they read books too. In school we like listening to the ‘Tricky Words’ song on YouTube. Warning: it is catchy!
Please keep helping your child to recognise and count numbers to 20 and beyond. We focus on a deep understanding of number to 10. Please help your child to:
recognise numbers in the environment
Being able to know how many a small group of objects are without having to count
Knowing ways to make that number (ie 2 + 3 = 5, 5 – 3 = 2)
Children in EYFS learn to recognise shapes and their properties. You could spot 3D shapes at home (e.g. a cereal box looks like a cuboid).
Here are some links to some maths games your children might enjoy!
Feel free to contact us via email if you have any questions or need help. Please upload any of the learning that takes place at home onto Class Dojo when you can so we can see all the hard work the children have been doing.
