Home learning tips for Early Years:

1. Make a plan of routines.

Children love routines and need to know what is happening. Children could help you plan it out.

2. Add in plenty of breaks.

For yourself as well as your children.

3. Have set times to work.

Children like to know what is expected when, they love routines.

4. Make it fun!

Where as it is important to keep up with reading, writing and maths daily it is equally important to enjoy what you do. 

5. Add daily exercise into your routines.

Keeping fit is essential - see PE pages for youtube links to exercises.

6. Keep in contact with others.

Skype, facetime, Whatsapp loved ones and friends - it's important to keep those contacts.

7. Spend time having fun - plan in new games/ experiences.

These are unusual times, use these opportunities to do something new or learn a new skill. Ask your children what they would like to do? Make, bake, cook, sew, build, draw, paint, challenge, experiment.

8. Enjoy the time with your children.

Your children are all wonderful. They are superb learners and surprise me everyday. Watch them, talk to them, spend time with them doing what they want to do, hug them, make them laugh and keep them safe!


Hoping to see you all again very soon
