Range of activities




Lots of activity ideas for different ages, songs to help with tunes you may not know- or to learn new songs and tips for parents.

Recipes, games, songs, make-and-do, advice for parents.

CBBC Number Blocks- good for understanding numbers

Phonics play has made some resources free at the moment- Phase 1 might be fun (if a little easy), Phase 2 the children will need you to sound out the letters to read the words, “t-i-n, tin.”

Useful to hear letter sounds and see the letter shapes within little stories (red level).

Twinkl is free at the moment and has lots of Early Years (EYFS) curriculum and themed resources. There is also a section for birth to 2s. years home activities&rs=typed&term_meta[]=early|typed&term_meta[]=years|typed&term_meta[]=home|typed&term_meta[]=activities|typed

Pinterest has literally thousands of ideas- just search for what you were thinking about. I typed in ‘Early Years home activities’. You could look for craft activities, messy activities, sensory activities, quiet activities…

Ideas for the garden or for your 1 hour exercise on the scrubs.
