P5 Tasks (10/06/20)

Good morning everyone!

I hope you are ready for another day of home learning😊⭐️

Tasks for today are…


I would like you all to try our Editing and Proofreading task today. You can see the passage and questions below and it is exactly what we have been doing in the class.

If you need any help with spellings then feel free to use a dictionary to check📖


Yesterday I set you a Maths page to try. You had the choice to complete it all yesterday or use 2 days to complete it.

If you have already completed it then you have free choice of a Maths game. Remember there is Sumdog, Splash Learn, Hit the Button and Topmarks to choose from- have fun!😊

I am looking forward to hearing from you all⭐️

Health and Well Being Activities for the Week – 09.06.20

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are well.

This week we will look at online safety.

As we are all spending so much more time online these days Mrs Arnold and I thought another wee exercise to remind us how to use our online time safely would be good.

This Power Point is best looked at with someone you can discuss your thoughts and answers with but can be worked through on your own if you want to.


Chatting online ca be a great way to stay in touch with your friends and family but it really important to keep yourself when you chat.  This is a check list of things you can do to make sure you are being safe when you chat online.

Safe Online Chatting Tick Sheet

If you would like more information about staying safe online these are a few helpful websites with useful information about staying safe online for children and parents to help.  (for parents)

Remember stay SMART online

Art activity

Afternoon all,

I have a 10 minute clip for you to enjoy today. I would like you to be inspired by the reusing of household items to create something else which may be useful or just pretty.

Now I’m not expecting you to make any of the things you saw on the clip unless you want to and have the items in the house (also you will need permission and help from an adult especially if you need to use sharp instruments).

My challenge for you this week is to make something out of an item you would be throwing away. Use your imagination and have fun.

Mrs Campbell:-D
