Language Skills (Secondary)

Good morning everyone,

Hope you have had a lovely weekend.

Please see today’s activity choices below:

Option 1 (daily activity) – Early Level

Senses scavenger hunt: see

Make a list of a-z on a piece of paper and go for a walk outside with a family member(s); note down all the things that you can see that begin with letters of the alphabet e.g. b – bus.

How many did you manage to get?

Option 2 (daily activity) – First Level

Sentence scavenger hunt: see

Go for a walk outside with a family member(s) and notice all the things that you can see. When you get home, write down five sentences that include a full stop, capital letter and connectives e.g. and, so, but, then.

Option 3 (week long activity) – First Level and beyond


Each day this week, you are going to choose a different news item to research:

Read the article and then write a summary (the key points) of what it is about. Remember to include the following:

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Why?

Include no more than five bullet points. Ask yourself: will people be interested or is my message too long to read? Remember to stick to the key points.

After your writing, discuss the key points with a family member. Ask what their opinion (what they think) is and explain your own viewpoint. Try to give at least one reason for your opinion.

Option 4 (browse the web)

Explore one or more of the following websites to find something of interest and benefit to you:

Good luck!
