Learners for Life

EYFS learning here!

As school is partially opening for specific year groups, all of our teachers are needed in school to plan and teach the returning children.

Therefore, home learning will look a little bit different from now on.

We will now be using the Government's Oak Academy and will post your timetable of work for the week on our class pages.

If you have any questions regarding the work that has been put on please email where Mrs Knowles will be picking up emails.


Miss Baxter, Mrs Leach and Mrs Batty will continue to respond to any photos and/or videos that are uploaded to celebrate achievements from home, birthdays or anything you would like to share. We will also continue to share Tapestry uploads with the children in school.

If your child's circumstances have changed in any way during this period away from school then please contact the class teacher using Tapestry.

All previous home learning...


There are six key areas of early mathematics learning, which collectively provide a platform for everything children will encounter as they progress through their maths learning at primary school, and beyond:

  • Cardinality and Counting
  • Comparison
  • Composition
  • Pattern
  • Shape and Space
  • Measures.

These areas form the fundamental mathematical basis of a CBeebies series of five-minute animated programmes called Numberblocks. We use these and the NCETM materials to draw out and build on the maths embedded in the stories contained in each episode.


Phonics is recommended as the first strategy that children should be taught in helping them learn to read. It runs alongside other teaching methods such as Guided Reading and Shared Reading to help children develop all the other vital reading skills and hopefully give them a real love of reading. 

So what is phonics?

Words are made up from small units of sound called phonemes. Phonics teaches children to be able to listen carefully and identify the phonemes that make up each word. This helps children to learn to read words and to spell words


They are taught GPCs. This stands for grapheme phoneme correspondences. This simply means that they are taught all the phonemes in the English language and ways of writing them down. These sounds are taught in a particular order. The first sounds to be taught are s, a, t, p.


Children are taught to be able to blend. This is when children say the sounds that make up a word and are able to merge the sounds together until they can hear what the word is. This skill is vital in learning to read.


Children are also taught to segment. This is the opposite of blending. Children are able to say a word and then break it up into the phonemes that make it up. This skill is vital in being able to spell words.
