The learning projects have been planned by teachers from across the Trust as a result of the Partial Opening Phase of the Coronavirus Outbreak in the UK. Each learning project follows a specific theme (e.g. Minibeasts) and will give you a range of daily activities which you can access at home covering the EYFS curriculum in five key areas:
- Reading and Writing
- Outdoor Learning Challenge
- Wider Curriculum project - this includes physical development, communication and language, personal social and emotional development, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.
Our aim is that the activities are practical, fun and easy to access. Some sections include hyperlinks which you can click on to access online stories, games and more!
As a Trust we are committed to providing feedback to those using these resources and we would love to hear how your children engage with the learning projects. A central team are available should you wish to ask questions about the home learning, send significant pieces of work which your child has completed or ask for some feedback. Please use the email address below to contact the team, adding your child’s name and school in order for them to support you.
