Welcome to F1 Home Learning Page!
Here is a selection of practical activities you and your child can enjoy at home. Learning at this age should be fun and based on play, young children will be much more engaged if they are enjoying themselves and there is no pressure.
- Sing nursery rhymes together and make up your own actions. There are loads of nursery rhymes on YouTube.
- Read stories together. Encourage your child to join in with the repeated parts of the story.
- Use old boxes and junk to make puppets and retell your favourite stories.
- Encourage your child to draw - with anything! Pencils, crayons, chalk, stones and sticks in the garden etc. Ask them to tell you about their picture, even if it just looks like a squiggle. Can they tell you what their marks mean?
- Make music! Use pots, pans and wooden spoons. Or you could even make a shaker from an old bottle. Can your child copy a rhythm that you play? Can they do it loud, quiet, fast and slow?
- Practice saying numbers in order - you could count the steps as you go upstairs, count while you wait for the kettle to boil, play hide and seek counting to 10 before you look for each other.
- Hunt for shapes - what shapes can you find in your house?
- Give your child lots of opportunity to follow instructions for example baking, building lego etc.
- Play imaginative games such as shops, doctors, families, bus drivers, superheroes etc. Encourage your child to talk about what they are doing.
- Play board games to encourage your child to take turns.
