Add to My Folder

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.

2.30-3.15 Art Outcome/purpose:
To create a newspaper collage.

You will need: old newspapers, A4 paper, glue, scissors.

Draw a rough sketch of a face outline on a piece of A4 paper, drawing a vertical line through the centre of the face which should also include a simple nose and mouth shape.

Cut the half-face shape from the paper and use as a template, placing one section onto a chosen section of newspaper.

Draw around the face section and cut out.

Do the same with the opposite half but choose a contrasting section of print, maybe using a section containing images or text on a coloured background.

Glue the two face sections onto a contrasting sheet of paper or card, leaving a small gap between the two halves. It looks good if you place your face at an angle to the background paper.

Add a simple rectangle of paper as a neck and also the very top of a T shirt or jumper.

Add two eyes, sections of hair and any extra bits you fancy, such as bows, a neck tie, earrings or a couple of buttons.

Finish by outlining all sections with black felt pen.

(Activity adapted from our Collage crafts article.)

Optional parent support:
Help your child to draw the face sections. View an example of a finished newspaper collage face.

Your child may need help drawing a halfway line.
Note that children should always be supervised when using scissors.
