Ongoing Learning and Activities

Here are some ideas for activities you may like to do to keep busy and to keep those brain muscles working:

  • ed shed- (spelling and maths shed)- logins have been sent out with your child.
  • TT rockstars: Each child has their login.
  • Y5/6 spelling words
  • Read stories of your choice- remember to keep finding out the meaning of unfamiliar words. Log them in your exercise book. Your child has bought home additional reading material from school.
  • Project- take the time away to complete a project on a subject of your choice. The outcome is up to you. If it is written, please remember the joins, spelling and punctuation. However, it can be creative. Be ready to share, when we return.
