Home Learning - General Guidance

As there are several children currently isolating at home, we have put together some ideas for possible home learning activities...…...



  • Counting out sets of objects and matching to numerals
  • Singing counting songs
  • Counting actions e.g. how many jumps can we do?
  • Comparing different sets of objects, saying when they have the same, more or fewer.
  • Adding one more/ taking one away from a set of objects.
  • Go on a shape hunt around your house.
  • Talking about length, height, weight etc. e.g. which fruit is heaviest/ lightest?
  • Capacity - playing with water and containers. Is it full/ empty?


  • Running, jumping, climbing etc. Try out different ways of moving.       
  • Dancing to music
  • Threading (pasta on string, cotton reels, cheerios, buttons etc)
  • Playdough - rolling, squashing, pinching, shaping etc.
  • Cutting with child scissors (cut out old cards, magazines etc)
  • Jigsaw puzzles
  • Peg boards, aqua beads, hama beads etc.
  • Building train tracks

Literacy/ Phonics

  • Sharing story books/ poems/ rhymes/ non-fiction texts.
  • Singing nursery rhymes and making up new rhyming verses
  • Playing 'I Spy' with initial sounds e.g. I spy something beginning with 'b'
  • Hunting for objects starting with the same sound
  • Rhyming games and finding objects that rhyme.
  • Writing own first name (and surname if ready) using correct formation.
  • Writing other letters and saying the sounds (if ready)


  • Drawing/ painting/ chalking pictures - think about the shapes and colours you are using.
  • Role play activities - shopping, homes, hairdressers, vets etc
  • Junk modelling
  • Singing and dancing
  • Playing with musical instruments (or pots and pans!)
  • Sticking pictures, tracing, stencils, rubbings etc
  • Dressing up and acting out stories


Above all, early years education is all about PLAY! Be a good role model by following your child's interests and playing WITH them.
