Home Learning

We find ourselves in the very unusual situation of having to ask the children to work at home for the coming weeks.

As a team, year R will be contactable via our year group email:

This will be checked daily during term time and between the hours of 9am and 3pm.  If you have any questions regarding the workbook or the home learning pack, drop us a line and we will do our best to support you with an answer.

To help support your child at home please view our

Web Links Page or our Online Learning Resources Page



The children have looked at and explored Under the Sea. During this topic we were able to learn about Oceans and Sea Life. Lots of us had an amazing time during this topic having the opportunity to look at and listen to some very big shells and get creative.


The children are engaged in their topic of learning on Dinosaur Friday. We have been looking at Dinosaur Eggs, Fossils and Bones. The children have learnt about how many types of dinosaurs and that they have become extinct and the children have been able to explore being Palaeontologists. We have been looking at Maps of our local coast line paying attention to the Dorset Coast and some real Fossils.


The Children have the opportunity to enjoy this learning Programme which enables them to explore their gross motor and fine motor pre-writing skills through Dance and Media Musical transfer to paper programme. This is a pre-writing and understanding listening skills development based learning. So much physical fun!


We have been looking at Story Sacks to enhance and enable our learning to progress when it comes to reading and writing. In keyworker time we get a story sack the same story all week. This gives us the chance to learn about the book in detail and to finish the story then complete a small fun task relating to the book, it could be role-playing the story and characters, colouring, puzzles relating to the story or some other fun activities as each story sack is different and holds different resources.

Please continue to support your child with their reading and their ‘tricky words’ your help is really benefitting them in learning time.


Funky fingers

We have been working really hard in Funky Fingers and our gross and fine motor skills are really coming along nicely. Every day we do Funky Fingers for 20 minutes and we love finding out what challenge we have today, whether it is attaching paper clips, making patterns on the peg boards, moulding playdough or threading cheerios onto spaghetti.

All About Me and WOW Clouds

This half term we have been learning all about All About Me . We have had an opportunity to explore all about our friends by sharing the bags we did in the Summer before starting school and our WOW Clouds! So a big thank you!

Making new friends

We have had so much fun this half term making lots of new friends. We have been really enjoying ourselves playing in our new school. We have explored what a good friend is and how to be a good friend.


WE LOVE YOGA! We have become little experts in yoga and other fun activities in the hall, whether it be dancing, playing games or telling a story. We can choose if we want to go to the hall and we love finding out which yoga adventure we are going on today.

Autumn (Topic for this half term)

The children have had a fabulous half term and we hope they have a lovely restful break. Don’t forget to add any observations to Tapestry over the half term we would love to know what you have been up to.

Thank you.
