Reception / Foundation Stage children - This plan shows the ideas for children's home learning based around the same topic that we will be working on when the children return to school - Journeys and Transport.

The learning and activities during their week in school will be different to those on the home learning plan.

For children returning to school from Tuesday 2nd June, this plan is for home learning week commencing 8th June.

For those returning to school from 8th June, this plan is for home learning week commencing 1st June.

Please bear in mind that I will now be back in school teaching full time and will not be able to respond to posts and questions as quickly as I have been able to over the past weeks. Thank you.

Here is the home learning plan for the next 2 weeks, so whichever week you are not in school you can work on these activities. We are continuing our Journeys and Transport theme and this week all of our learning is based around trains and the story 'The Train Ride'.

Home Learning Plan - The Train Ride.pdf

Please continue to post your learning on Tapestry for me to see.

As always, please use Class Dojo to ask any questions that you may have or to ask for help or advice about further learning.

Year 1 children can also follow this if you wish, although there is specific Year 1 work for you and you will find the links to this on the Class 2 page.

Here is the home learning plan for the next 2 weeks, so whichever week you are not in school you can work on these activities. Our theme for these weeks is 'Journey to the seaside'.

This week there is no online plan to follow. Children who have been in school have brought a summer themed activity pack home which they can work on and continue into the summer holidays if they wish. They have completed transition activities and discussions in school about the changes and expectations for moving into Year 1 in September, whether that is in Class 1 or Class 2.

Children at home can download the summer learning pack and transition activities below:





This will be the last week of home learning via our website as next week is the start of our summer holiday and all children are to return to school in September. Thank you to everyone who has engaged with the home learning!

Remember you cannot upload anything to Tapestry this week as the journals have now been exported ready for you to download. You can still contact me via Class Dojo if you need anything.

Have a lovely summer holiday, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all back in school in September!
