Home Learning Diary EYFS / Mummy Talk

Our Home Learning Diary – Week 1

This week was our first week of #lockdown in the UK and social distancing with kids although hard has been rewarding for us as a family. More time spent together playing, home learning and searching (for socks, toys, ourselves, space and God – the list can literally be endless). We’ve done so much thanks to the help of #JasperBean’s school teacher who has been an absolute rockstar! He’s provided us with weekly/daily home learnings that has guided us through these tough times. We really appreciate everything he has done and #JasperBean looks forward to receiving his daily emails giving us feedback about the things he has done. These are a few of the things we got up to this week.

Note: #JasperBean is in Reception (age 4-5: EYFS), therefore his home learning is specific to him/his age. I have received permission to share parts of his home learning plan from his teachers.
