There are lots of ideas here that your child can do at home to keep them developing their Literacy and Numeracy skills
- read a book with soft toy or with a family member. Once you have read the book, retell the story and state your favourite part and why it was your favourite.
Writing instructions is always a good activity. These could be for:
- A how to; play a computer game, make a sandwich, feed a pet etc. Younger students can do the activity first, then draw illustrations/take photos and finally get someone to follow the instructions to check they work.
- Make a board game and a set of instructions. Students could bring the games into school for wet playtimes.
- Write a weekend recount.
- find items around the house that begin with the letters of the alphabet from A-Z. Then lay it all out and take a picture and send it to your teacher.
- Write a letter to your teacher about what you want to achieve this year.
- Count up to 5, 10, 20 and back
- Learn you number bonds to 5 and 10 e.g. 1+4=5, 2+3=5, 5+5=10
- Counting forwards and backwards from 0-50.
- Skip counting in 2’s.
- Year 3-6 learn your times tables
– create an obstacle course with items from around your house.
– build the largest tower you have ever built and take a picture.
– draw a picture, colour it in and tell me about your picture via video.
– make something to eat. Record yourself saying each step/instruction then show what you have made.
– build a fort with items from around your house.
– learn a song and sing along.
– create your own dance moves/dance routine and then take a video once you have done it.
