WEBSITES FOR HOME LEARNING
Free Parental Access to Twinkl (KS1 and KS2)
Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer. This is the quickest and easiest way for parents to get set up. Enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS.
There are a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. There is also a dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home.
For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share.
For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area.
You can also find Home Learning Packs from Year 1 to Year 6.

WORK FROM MRS SHAW
Street Detective Ideas for Home Learning Y2
What will you choose to do?
- Keep your street diary updated with all the exciting things that happen in your street. Remember to use interesting adjectives and verbs.
- Look in detail at the outside of your own house and make a careful observational drawing.
- Draw a plan or map of your ideal neighbourhood. Who would you like to have living on your street? You might choose fairytale characters, sports champions or pop stars. What type of house would your ideal neighbours have? Create a key to show features on your map. What local amenities would your residents need? For example, Harry Potter might need a wand shop, and Rapunzel might need hairdressers!
- Watch a clip of a film made to show what family life was like in the 1900s. Talk to your grown ups about how life was different for children in the past. Draw pictures and write some sentences to share at school.
- Draw and label a design for your own fantasy home. What will your home be built from? How will you get in and out of your house? What will you have in your garden? Make a model of your fantasy house using junk materials.
- Watch time-lapse footage or look at step-by-step photographs of a house being built. Find out and list the types of building machinery needed to build a house. Draw or download images of each vehicle and write a description of what it is used for. Perhaps you could make a non-fiction book or PowerPoint presentation to show what you have found out?
Make a leaflet or short film all about your local community. Include drawings, photographs or footage to show what you can see and do in your local area. Write or record your thoughts on what it’s like to live there as well as ideas for improving it.
Make a board game with a local area theme -the track could be a street and you could visit different places in your local area as you travel round the board. Play your game with your grown ups or siblings/friends.
