Back to Lockdown?

If your class/school is closing for a while, here are some suggestions for what to teach online, and what to provide for practice at home.
Reception: There are no Home Learning packs for this unit. Please adapt the Year 1 packs. Mix and match with the Reception Play Activities.
Year 1: Home Packs are not being prepared for this unit. If children are at home for a short while this term, use the 'Local Lockdown?' units on the Summer term home page.


Year 1 With TA or Tutor

A TA or Tutor can use these activities 1-to-1 or with a small group of children to support learning. Notes on How to Use are provided for teacher and TA/Tutor.
