Early Years Online Learning

Welcome to the Early Years Online Learning    

 Dear Early Years children and parents,

We are sad that we cannot see you in school at the moment but in order for you to carry on learning at home we are planning lots of activities for you to have a go at. Our weekly planning will be posted below, including useful links for you to use. 

In addition, we will be using Seesaw to post story time sessions and to share a range of learning that you can then show us. In order to help you with new learning in phonics and Mathematics we will also upload short videos made by us.

We really appreciate how difficult it can be to juggle everything when learning at home and we value all of your efforts and achievements. Keep going and please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you need any support.

Please visit our Early Years page for all other curriculum over views and year group information. 

We are providing a variety of activities from across the curriculum which we would have been teaching in school. Our activities are engaging and varied in their approach including; online, active, outdoor, indoor and written. 

Our learning is led by the interests of the children which we gather at regular points in the term. This will be the  starting point for our Literacy planning and for other areas of the Early Years curriculum. Maths follows the developmental progression leading towards the end of year assessment statements.

If you have any questions about online learning or you would like to contact us directly please email:
