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

Summary

Each day this week, you are going to choose a different news item to research: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround.

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.

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).

Junk Instruments

We’re going to make some musical instruments from things that you might find around the house.

Watch this video to help you think about the different ways to make sounds from household objects:

https://www.facebook.com/royalscottishnationalorchestra/videos/213232873223090/

We can also find things in our recycling that we can use to make instruments. Get help from a grown-up in case there are any sharp objects.

Now watch this video and see what you can do to make an instrument to shake or tap.

What can you find that can make a good noise? Can you make a shaker or a rain stick? Or a type of drum? Ask an adult to help you. Maybe you would like to decorate it as well.

You can then use these instruments any time and also in some of the Music activities. Have fun!

 

Time to move!

Dance or play along with your instruments to this hiphop classic.

Time to relax

Chill to this piano version of Imagine by John Lennon.
