Year 1 Remote Learning

We are here to help support you in working with your children, in terms of homework and remote learning should the need arise during this uncertain time.



Child Initiated

Throughout Year 1, play is an important way in which children explore their creativity, develop their imagination, become independent and consolidate and extend their learning. It is the way children engage and interact in the world around them. They can play alone, with an adult or alongside. It is also important to teach children to be independent. Encouraging them to play for a small amount of time on their own is really important.

Here are some ideas to support your child’s play at home. We have linked these activities to the Year 1 Curriculum so you can see how play supports your child’s learning and development at this stage.
