The BBC Bitesize website is full of great videos, activities, online games and other resources. Although it isn't all aimed at Reception age children, we've rounded up some of the resources that we've found that might be useful for home learning.

Talk for Writing Home School Booklets

For parents and carers with access to a printer, there are brilliant home school 'talk for writing packs' called "Mavis the Magical Cat" , "The Amazing Adventures of Max" and "Mouse's Adventures".  These units are great for developing children's story language, vocabulary and writing skills.
