A place to find activities as well as lots of other exciting activities going on in Pinewood.

Language Skills (Secondary)

Good morning everyone,

Below are some activity choices for this week:

Option 1 (daily activity) – Early Level

Practice activity

Choose an activity from this week that you feel you could practise more and have another go.

Remember, practice makes better!

 

Option 2 (week long activity) – First Level and beyond

Diary

You are going to create your own diary. First, research some famous dairies, e.g. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank – google an excerpt to look at the format (how it is laid out).

Now, it’s your turn!

Create your own personal diary and design the front cover which should reflect your personality.

Every day make a diary entry that explains the events and experiences of your day.

The key features of a diary are explained below:

  • describes the places where events happened
  • is written in the past tense
  • talks about the most important events
  • uses some personal pronouns: I, we, my, me
  • talks about feelings
  • uses time conjunctions (e.g. before, next, after) to show when things happened.

Try to think about your choice of words to make your writing more interesting by using adverbs and adjectives.

An adverb – a word that describes a verb (an action or doing word). E.g. I ate (verb) my breakfast slowly (adverb).

An adjective – a word that describes a noun (the name of a thing or place). E.g. I played a fun (adjective) game (noun).

Good morning everyone,

A Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you enjoyed the Christmas holidays and had a chance to relax with your family.

Below are some activity choices for this week:

Option 1 (daily activity) – Early Level

Alphabet list

We all celebrated the recent holiday, for each of us, the focus would be different, for example, for some, it’s about the meaning of Christmas, for others, it’s about the giving and receiving of presents, family time or a winter holiday (even a mixture of these).

You are going to create an alphabet list based on the focus of your holiday. For example:

Christmas alphabet  – b baublesppresents

Gift alphabet            – c chocolatessocks

Family                        – f fun,  mmovies

Winter holiday         – s snowggames

So, for example, if you choose the Gift alphabet, you would write down a-z on paper, and next to each letter, you would write down an item that either you or a family member received for Christmas. How many can you remember?

 

Option 2 (week long activity) – First Level and beyond

Diary

You are going to create your own diary. First, research some famous dairies, e.g. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank – google an excerpt to look at the format (how it is laid out).

Now, it’s your turn!

Create your own personal diary and design the front cover which should reflect your personality.

At-Home Learning: A Guide for Parents During School Breaks

Welcome to Pinewood Home Learning!  

Groundskeeper willie GIF on GIFER - by Vurn

 

Learning GIFs | Tenor

Hello Everyone!

Lets start the day the Pinewood way.

Circle Time!

Now that we are all woken up, how about some maths?

If you are really awake you could try the cup stacking challenge at the end!

I hope you had a go and had some fun!

After all that, it’s time to listen to a story, a monster story!

 

I think we might need some movement after all that excitement.

 

Now it’s time for some jobs.  Which job are you going to choose today?

 

Let’s try  some reading.

Are you ready for some sensory fun?

 

Would you like to make a snow volcano?

 

Let’s warm up by doing some Yoga.  We will start at level one, as you may not have done any yoga for a while!

Thanks to Claire whom you may recognise and to the rest of the CAMHS ID team.

Time for relaxation.

I hope you have a magical Monday!
