The Queen's C of E
Primary School

Early Years

Welcome to the

EYFS learning page. 

Whilst you are unable to come into school, we want you to be able to keep on learning. Therefore we will update this page every Monday with a variety of tasks to complete.

Oliver and Holly the Owl are excited to see all the home learning you get up too!

In the pages below you will find English, Maths, PSHE, R.E and Understanding the World learning to do at home. As the majority of our Reception curriculum is learnt through play we have also created a page with ideas and guidance on how to facilitate learning through play at home. There are also many useful links to websites that also have fun and creative opportunities for learning.

If you have limited time on a computer or unable to access any of our links, there are lots of things you can do to keep learning going. We recommend that at the very least you keep the following skills going -

  • Daily reading
  • Counting practise – counting forwards and backwards to 20 and working with addition/ subtraction with single digit numbers.
  • Phonics practise of:

Set 1: s, a, t, p
Set 2: i, n, m, d
Set 3: g, o, c, k
Set 4: ck, e, u, r
Set 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

Set 6: j, v, w, x

Set 7: y, z, zz, qu

Consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, ng

Vowel digraphs: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, er

  • Tricky word practise using the red tricky word cards.

Please see the links below to help you practice your tricky words and phonics. There is also a home starter guide that is similar to the one provided in your pack, this has some added information in it so please do have a look. Don’t forget to access the tasks your teacher has given you on Mathletics and Education City.
