Home Learning
If your child is self-isolating, please click log in to your child’s class page using your eschool account.  There you will find the timetable for this week.  Your child can access their lessons by following  the remote learning links.   
Please find below a list of websites that are reliable and, in this uncertain time, will provide a bank of ideas and resources for your child to access in order to continue with their learning and development should we have to isolate for any reason.

Empty! Please add a resource.

To support your child in developing their fine motor control and their malleable skills, below is a recipe for playdough that never fails...


Playdough recipe

1 cup of plain flour

1 cup of table salt

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

2 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar

1 cup of water Food colouring  




Combine all ingredients, cook in the microwave 2 minutes at a time, stir thoroughly between each 'cook' until the dough pulls together and is no longer sticky.   


Children can also practise the following

  • writing/spelling their name using their name card and also using the very tricky cursive script
  • reading the tricky words ( there are more in their reading bag) and even spelling them. 
  • play number games,
  • recognise and order numerals from 0 -10/11-20/20 and beyond. 


How to support your children at home?

Please see the Remote Learning timetable for each week (log on to the eSchools Platform or Tapestry) with links to pre-recorded lessons for your child to access at home. This information is also shared using the Tapestry platform and via email for the Year 1 pupils.

We have also added a Home Learning Activity grid with further fun ideas for your child and their family - these will help your child to practise and reinforce their skills. 

There are also some links to websites that we commonly use in school to support learning.

I hope this is helpful, if there is anything else you require then please let a member of the Class One Team know.
