Home Learning FS2 – School Closure

Image result for home LearningOut of School Learning


Dear parents & carers,

As you are aware, Sheffield schools will be closed for a short period due to the Coronavirus (COVID- 19). We want to minimise the impact this will have on your child’s learning so we have put together this bank of ideas to ensure your child will continue learning and consolidating their understanding whilst being away from school. In addition, we would ask that you access the activities that have been set here on a daily basis (Mon to Fri during normal school time) by Mrs Mulholland & Mrs Underwood.

Set activities:

Friday 27th March



https://www.starfall.com/h/ltr-classic/ Interactive story and game (Car Race)


Write the words on pieces of paper (scrap paper) and hide them around the house. Can they find and read the ten ‘ar’ words.

car, jar, bar, star, barn, arm, bark, art, park and far.

Can they make a car, or a park or a star with play dough, lego, cardboard…?

Or create a piece or artwork?


Use your toys to tell a story. Encourage them to use the words they have learnt in the week (positional language).

What happens to their toy/character? Where do they go? Who do they meet?


Some activities that children could do:

  • Practice previously learnt word cards to consolidate learning
  • Read and share lots of books (school and home books)
  • Practise recognising the phase 2 and 3 phonemes from the yellow phonic book.
  • Practise writing the sounds from the book to support quick recall.
  • Play lots of games to support turn taking and language, as well as developing number recognition and counting skills in games like snakes and ladders and dominoes.
  • Look at activities on Twinkl as they are offering one month free for pupils of schools that have closed.
