Remember - tailored Y1 Whole class catch-up activities will help to revise Key Skills from the year before.

Coping with 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: The Y1 Route map outlines what to teach online, and what to practise at home. The Y1 Home pack provides all Y1 materials needed at home


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.
