During the first 48 hours of self-isolation, it is likely that you or your child may feel too unwell to tackle schoolwork, nor should this be a priority. However, here are some activities your child can do if they are well enough to continue their learning whilst awaiting test results or while their class teacher is putting home learning in place. In the foundation stage, your child should also spend plenty of time playing and learning through play.
- Reading - spend some time listening to your child read each day and reading to them, talk about what's happening in the book and what the pictures show too.
- Maths - Practise counting different objects and finding different ways of making 10. Look for shapes around the home and make shapes out of lego or other bricks.
- Phonics - Spend some time on phonics bloom or phonics play. https://https://www.phonicsbloom.com/ /https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ challenge your child to identify the first and last sound in different words then encourage them to try and write them if they can.
- Writing - Draw and colour in a picture of a pet or favourite toy and write down its name.
