HWB Activities 25.06.20

Hello Everyone,

Itโ€™s almost the summer holidays, and today will be my last HWB post on Dojo and the blog for this year.ย  I hope you have had fun trying all the tasks this year and that they have helped you with your emotions during lockdown.

Activity 1

Create your own โ€˜coronacoasterโ€™ to explore your feelings during lockdown and as we are starting to find our way back to normal.

Below are a couple of links to explain this further and to give you some inspiration.

Activity 2

Explain to your family about emotion works and how we use it in school.

Watch the video link below, answer questions and discuss it with an adult. There is also a counting challenge so you have to take a close look at the video.

Enjoy and happy thinking everyone,

Miss Cunningham

Science activity

Good Afternoon,

This will be your final post from me this school year for Science ๐Ÿ™

But I’ve got a really nice last activity for you all to try ๐Ÿ˜€

You can try it at any time, don’t worry about having to do the task by Friday!

Do you wanna build a ….. no not a snowman!

Do you want to make some ice cream?!?!

Watch this clip and ‘Science at home with Mrs B’ will tell you how to make ice cream in a bag. If you can’t view the clip then google ice cream in a bag and there are loads of clips to watch.

Hope it’s a success!

Sending warm hugs!

Art Activity

Hi everybody,

Here’s my last art post to you all.

We are now in the last week of school and we would normally have the opportunity to visit our new teacher for the afternoon to get to know them and get excited about being in their class in August.

I’d want to ask you a question……What makes you happy?

Toys? Food? Family? Friends Pets? Holidays? …………..

This art activity is the chance to let your new teacher know what makes you tick and especially what makes you happy. I know that it is important to us teachers that we get to know you and this little piece of art will help us do that. Please send your completed work to your current class teacher as normal and then I can make sure they get passed on to your new teacher.

P7’s – please do this activity as I can get it passed on to your guidance teachers in the high school.


Don’t worry if you can’t print this off. Perhaps you could make a small video showing off what makes you happy. If you are feeling especially creative you could make a PowerPoint, film an iMovie, create a poster or simply draw it on a piece of paper.

Lastly when you do this activity make sure you are feeling happy to do it and that will keep everyone in your house happy too ๐Ÿ˜€

Science activity

Hi there,

I have a fun activity for you to do today. It’s all about animals using camouflage which is a way of hiding something by covering or colouring it so that it looks like its surroundings.

I have a PowerPoint with audio (suitable for P1-7)ย  that tells you the four different ways that animals and insects use camouflage to protect themselves from being eaten!

It doesn’t matter what year you are in, you can choose to do any one of the three tasks that are listed in the PowerPoint.

The natural world is full of wonders and I hope you will learn a bit about how animals adapt themselves to survive in different environments.

Have a good day,

Good morning everyone!

Tasks for today are…


I would like you to revise using commas around speech. Below I have added a link to BBC Bitesize. I would love for you to watch the video clips to help you and to complete the activities below. You do not need to print off any of the worksheets, you can just write some examples of speech on a piece of paper. *Also don’t worry about the editing activity at the end if you do not have access to see it. That can be a challenge task if needed.

*The website says to take a new line when a new character us speaking, although we do not do that.

I hope you like the video and the speech marks rap!๐Ÿ˜Š


I was impressed with how well you got on yesterday with finding fractions of amounts. I would like you to revise this today by completing the sheet below.

Remember to look back to the video clip I shared yesterday if you need to be reminded how to work out fractions of amounts.
