Learning at Home – activities if you are in isolation


Here are some activities for you to do at home. You can look back through the Blog for games we have already played and ask your child how we play them.

  • Make sentences for your child to read, using the sounds and tricky words from their sound box.

  • Handwriting (look at the handwriting sheet we gave you)

  • Write names, lists, messages, cards, keep a diary,  labels for pictures.
