Here you will find suggested learning opportunities for your Reception children. Using these resources, you can put together a working timetable that fits your family commitments. We would like to encourage you towards certain online learning tools that we believe contain the best content to support learning in the coming weeks. myON and Renaissance (Maths in a Flash) will be our primary sources for distance online learning – these will be monitored regularly by me. There is also a bank of websites for you to select from that cover all areas of the EYFS curriculum.

I will be setting projects in myON that involve reading, writing and other areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. There will be no deadlines set as every family situation is different, but I will be setting projects regularly to keep the children learning! 

Daily timetables will vary according to your work and family commitments and how much time you decide to spend on each activity per day. Below is a suggested possible timetable that you could either follow or adapt to suit you and your child.
