# Language Skills (Secondary)

Good morning everyone,

Our theme today for home-school learning is summer.

Here are some activities to choose from:

Read the following poems about summer (they may also give you some ideas for your own poems):

Summer Days

I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot.

To lie out in the sun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To play and have some fun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To hit a ball and run.

Oh, I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot

Now summer has begun.

Anne English

Summer Song

By the sand between my toes,

By the waves behind my ears,

By the sunburn on my nose,

By the little salty tears

That make rainbows in the sun

When I squeeze my eyes and run,

By the way the seagulls screech,

Guess where I am? At the ……!

By the way the children shout

Guess what happened? School is ……!

By the way I sing this song

Guess if summer lasts too long:

You must answer Right or ……!

John Ciardi

Good luck!

Life skills – tidy up your rooom. Remember to put toys and games away after playing with it

Maths – Puddle Jump

Take a small stack of paper and cut a puddle shape out of several at once to save time. Write numbers on it. Depending on your child you can write 0-5, 0-10, 10-20, , 0-100 by tens, 50-60….

The idea is jump on puddles following the right order. Once on the puddle kids can jump on it as many times as the number shown.

Fiddly Fingers – Use clothes pegs to catch the pompoms

STORY – Today for story time have fun with one of your books, Tell me which one is your favourite.

Sign of the day – Don’t forget to be practicing the sign of the day

Music – Go to the Music section and choose one of the activities that your Music teacher prepared for you. Have fun J

Sensory – Time to go outside. Tell me what you can hear. Can you hear the birds? Can you hear people talking, can you hear the cars….

Dance – Go to the Dance section and choose one of the activities that your Dance teacher prepared for you. Have fun J

HWB – It’s time to go outside and get some fresh air. Take some toys to play in your garden.

I am looking forward to see you all again on Friday
