We have created these KS1 daily home-learning timetables to help your children aged 5-7 (Years 1-2) stay engaged and entertained from 9am–3.15pm!

Each timetable includes an hour’s learning on the core subjects of English and Maths, with sessions for other curriculum coverage and time for reading, breaks, snacks and daily exercise. Of course, some younger KS1 children will require more parental support but the activities are designed for self-led learning as much as possible.
*Remember not all days will go to plan and your child might not always be able to sit and work quietly for the allocated time. If needed, allow your child/children to pick and choose which activities they would like to do, or encourage them to focus on just one piece of learning per day.

Where do different animals live?
To learn animals’ habitats.

An animal’s habitat is the place where they live. For example, a frog’s habitat is a pond and a monkey’s habitat is the rainforest.

Download the worksheet ‘Where do different animals live?’ and match the animals to their correct habitats.

Next, download and read the ‘Who lives here?’ poem.

Fold a piece of plain A4 paper in half, and then fold it in half again to create four sections. Ask a parent or carer to help with this.

Draw the different animals’ homes from the poem in the four sections on the paper. Then draw the animal or insect in their home with a speech bubble, saying, ‘This is my home!’.

The four sections should show: A spider in a web; a fish in a pond; a beetle under a stone; a person in a house.

Optional parent support:
Ensure your child understands what the word ‘habitat’ means.

Check that they have matched the animals to the correct habitats on the ‘Where do different animals live?’ worksheet.

Read the ‘Who lives here?’ poem to your child if they have difficulty reading it independently.

Help them to divide the plain paper into four sections.
12.30-1.30 Lunch If you have a garden or balcony, try to get some fresh air after lunch. Don’t forget to wash your hands before you eat! Remember to wash your hands!
