FS2 Home learning pack

11th January – 22nd January 2021

Our home learning pack is for FS2. We have included some phonics, literacy, mathematics and topic work. In our topic work we are thinking about Winter, there are a couple of challenge sheets in the pack with different activities on them.

If any work is set on Purple Mash or Busythings, we will message you on Eylog. Please try and complete any work set.

Please also record any activities or incidental learning on Eylog as we love to see what you have been doing. You could even take a photo of any work completed and upload it to Eylog.


Keep safe and Keep well,

All the Early Years Team
