Look at games and activities in phases 1-3 for most Reception children.
For Year 1 children look at games and activities in phases 3 -5


Writing ideas: 

Together write shopping lists, To Do lists, reminder notes, stories, the class register, dream menus. These do not need to be long pieces of writing but can be single words with some correct sounds. Use your Home Learning Book. 


Handwriting practice: 

Draw wavy lines, straight lines, zig zags and other patterns and ask your child to trace over them and then copy them. Make them simple and then more difficult. Look at for pre cursive lines.

You do not need to print them but you can copy them as a guide into your Home Learning Book.


Practice letter formations: Use as a guide and copy them into your Home learning Book.



Count everything! Pairs of socks, shoes, hair bands, cars, buttons. Sort toys into groups. Look at numbers on a deck of cards and draw dots to show that number. 



Stay as active a possible. Try this Samba dance! Learn the moves and we can all dance together when we get back to school.
