Below is a link to lots of home learning activities. If it’s not possible to print – there are some great ideas and lots of games and videos too for all areas of the EYFS curriculum.
Good Morning, Hope everyone is well. I will post any new educational links that I come across that may support home learning.
Please can I re-iterate that taking time out for playing in the garden, playing board games, baking, making reading dens and tent forts etc and having FUN will be just as important to your child’s well-being especially if social contact is going to be limited. I will be in touch through the class blog (keep checking and scrolling back as may be lots to look through) and will remain contactable on my school email stated on the home learning letter. Don’t hesitate to get in touch. Many thanks and take care for now, Miss McIntyre x

In Foundation Stage we are constantly exploring Science everywhere, from experimenting with floating and sinking to discovering minibeasts in our environment. However, as part of National Science Week on Friday afternoon FS2’s also carried two science experiments. We investigated ice balloons and sorted sweets in lots of different ways.
It’s all things transport and vehicles in Foundation Stage. We have been enjoying exploring and investigating lots of different vehicles. We have read many stories linked to transport. FS1 compared two stories looking at similarities and differences. FS2 have been describing and writing about the vehicles in the story/song ‘We all go travelling by’. We are loving being creative using cars, trucks and paint. The East Yorkshire bus service 246 has also come to visit us and we are having fun riding on the bus.
During book week we had a visit from local author Andi Dawson. FS2 enjoyed hearing a story then we went on a character hunt altogether outside. We also enjoyed making puppets and acting out the story in the afternoon.
Everyone enjoyed dress up day on Wednesday during book week, FS were a sea of blue crayons. We had a fun day playing, looking at everyone’s outfits and doing lots of different crayon related activities.
We had great fun on pancake day tossing pancakes and spreading our favourite toppings on – the chocolate spread was a big favourite.
