Practical Learning Challenges

Extra time at home could be a good opportunity to work on some more practical skills. Have a look at these ideas and see if there any that you (or your grown up!) think would be good for you to work on. We'd love to see how you get on with these practical activities!

Tying Laces

Being able to tie shoelaces is such an important skill and helps you to be independent. Have a look at the guide below to help. 

Play a Board Game

Playing board games is a great way to work on a lot of different skills. Taking turns, counting on and back and many more! What games do you like to play?

Telling the Time

In Year 1 we learn how to tell the time to the hour and to the half hour. This would be a great thing to master during home learning time. 

Help Make Breakfast

Help your grown prepare breakfast. There is so much to learn in the kitchen! Measuring out amounts, as well as the physical skills of carefully pouring!

Completing a Jigsaw

Jigsaws are great! They help build your attention and concentration. We'd love to see photos of you and you compelted jigsaws! 

Sorting the Laundry

Helping with household jobs can have so many learning opportunities. Can you help sort and fold clothes carefully?


Help your grown up to make some playdough. Measure out the ingridients carefully and mix it all up. Playdough is great for fine motor skills, as well as being great fun!

Making Sandwiches

Can you make a sandwich for your lunch? With the help of a grown up, why not plan and make your own lunch one day. You could even write some instructions to let us know how you did it. 


Learn how to bake some tasty treats. This is a yummy way to practise weighing and measure amounts, as well as all of the physical skills involved. Here are some simple recipes you could try.
