Home Learning Pack 2

Hi Primary 5/6! I hope you’re learning lots from the pack I sent home but also relaxing and enjoying some time with your family. I’m missing you all so much and hope you’re staying safe inside. I wanted to check in to see how everyone is doing so I’ve emailed you all and you can email me if you have any questions, concerns or just for a chat if you need to speak to me .

I’ve noticed that some of you have been completing some of your Easimaths sessions online – yes I do get updates as to who has been online! If you’re finding it too hard or too easy, let me know and I can move you up or down a level.

Remember, Twinkl, Scholastic and Teachers Pet are offering free resources for parents to use with their children at home. All of these websites offer fantastic resources, activities and worksheets, as well as PowerPoints and games. I will also put some links to websites that you can access more resources below.

The pack I sent out before should be continued as there was a lot of content in there, but I am sending this as an updated one for some more ideas.

Literacy

Reading

  • Write out some comprehension questions using your personal reader
  • If you have finished 1 whole book, write a book review. You can write your own or find a worksheet of a book review on google
  • Google the lyrics to your favourite song and learn it from memory
  • RJ Palacio – the author of Wonder is doing a live reading on her twitter daily at 4pm
  • Read a newspaper article
  • Create a new character and introduce it into your book. What impact has this character had? Who does it interact with?
  • Bring a character home. What would happen if you brought 1 of the characters from your book home with you? Write a short paragraph in your jotter
  • Remember, you know how to visualise, summarise, infer, talk about main themes and use metalinguistics. Complete one of our reading strategies for your personal reader

Writing

  • Write a story. It can be any type of story (personal/imaginative). If you email me it, I will read it!
  • Keep writing your diary entry each day about what is happening in the world
  • Write a letter to a family member you haven’t seen in a while and/or a friend you might be missing
  • Cook something new and write out the recipe for it

Spelling

  • Keep practising your common words that were sent home
  • Create your own phoneme family grid and add to this as you find words in your book. For example, you might choose the ‘ai’ family – the grid should have 4/5 headings with different ways to spell the ‘ai’ sound and you can add words below the headings
Ei ay a ai a-e
reindeer day ape maid snake

 

  • Play a spelling game on a website
  • Challenge a friend or family member to spelling test

 

Maths

  • Keep using Easimaths (and remember to email me if it’s too hard or easy)

  • Cook/bake something new and measure out all the ingredients you need
  • Have a shape hunt at home. Which 2D and 3D shapes can you find?
  • Create your own maths board game. Play it with your family
  • Use the internet to plan a weekend away for a family of 4 (2x adults 2x children) to Disneyland Paris. Remember to research accommodation, travel and transport. How much is the holiday going to cost?

 

Other ideas

  • Grow something! It’s spring now and the perfect time to grow some plants or vegetables. Plant some seeds and see what happens!
  • Create a ‘magic potion’ (sorry mums, dads, grans and grandads!) Use ingredients you can find in your house – baking powder, shampoo, vinegar, washing up liquid – and create a fizzing potion
  • Go on a treasure hunt
  • Create an obstacle course in the garden – or in the house (but ask a parent first)
  • Make a meal for someone in your house
  • Wash the car
  • Learn a TikTok dance – Miss Reid has learned the Renegade
  • Plan to travel to a city or country that you want to visit. Draw its flag, make some food from that place, watch a video about it, make a boarding pass and keep this in a scrap book. You can do this with more than 1 country!
  • Make a birdfeeder from recyclable materials (or a monster like the one we saw at assembly)!
  • Have a clear out/tidy up! Donate some old clothes or toys (when it’s safe)
