Puffins Home Learning

Autumn 2020


If you are reading this it is probably because you or someone in your family has been asked to stay at home and isolate for a few days. We can’t wait to have you back in class where we are all busy learning but as you are stuck at home at the moment, we have sorted a few things out to keep you busy.


Read every day! You can read anything you like – it doesn’t have to be a school book. If you can’t find anything to read go to the Oxford Owl website where you will find lots of books you can read online. Mum or Dad will have to sign up but it is free and they may already have an account.





Practise forming your letters correctly. You could write them on a piece of lined paper, in a tray of sand or glitter or outside using chalk or a brush and water. Use the Letter Families Posters to make sure you are forming them correctly.







Do some writing! You could write about anything you like but if you are stuck for ideas have a look at the Pobble website. There is a new weird and wonderful picture every day and some of them are brilliant.

You could write a description of what you can see or you could write a story about the picture. Whatever you choose, think carefully about all the things which make good writing and include as much exciting detail as you can. 



We follow the White Rose Maths scheme of work, which can be found here: 

For Reception children, click on Early Years

Year Ones, click on the Year 1.

You will find the schemes of work here, which have lots of great ideas for activities. 

Any counting activities would be fabulous for you to have a go at. You could count how many stairs you have, how many steps it takes to walk around your garden or how many bites it takes to eat your dinner. You could also have a look at the Top Marks website which has some great maths games. 

Anything else

Anything else you can fit in would be a bonus and definitely worth some house points. Here are some ideas.



 Our Science this half term is learning all about our five senses. Use BBC Bitesize to find out about what they are and how we use them. You could go into your garden and go on a ‘Senses Walk’. Find out what you can see, hear, smell, feel and think about what you have tasted that day! Can you record your findings with drawings and labels? 


We can’t wait to see you back in school soon but in the mean time we would love to hear all about what you get up to at home!
