FREE and exciting opportunities for kids at home :)

Welcome to P5 home learning!

 

The P5 team will be working  hard over the next few weeks to recommend a range of resources to support you and your child in your learning journey at home.  Every families' home learning day may look a little different and that is fully expected. 

 

Daily Aims

Maths - spend approx 40mins 

Remember maths does not always have to be paper and pencil, there are plenty of opportunities for practical maths: dealing with money or measurements when baking a cake etc. 

Times Tables - encourage your child to practise multiplication and division facts for 5-10 mins each day. There are plenty of games to revise these key skills on our online resources provided.

 

English - spend approx 40mins

This may be reading comprehension, grammar work, or creative writing. 

Reading - 10-15mins every day. Reading can be carried out in a number of ways: reading to an adult (maybe even on FaceTime to a grandparent - this could really brighten up someone's day), reading to a younger sibling, being read to by an adult or following a text while listening to an audiobook. 

DON'T FORGET there are plenty of books on your child's Bug Club account. 

Spellings - these will be uploaded onto the website each week by your child's teacher. 

 

Physical Education - encourage as much of this as you can!

Joe Wicks also known as, 'The Body Coach' will be carrying out 1hour PE lessons for kids LIVE on his YouTube channel everyday at 9am. This would be a great way to start the day! 

 

World Around Us and Other Topics

Try to get creative and explore other areas of the curriculum. 

P5's current topic is Ancient Egypt - get as creative with this as you like! Maybe make a PowerPoint recording your knowledge, make a model of The Pyramids or create a mask of a  Pharaoh. Twinkl has lots of great resources and Pinterest is a hub of creative ideas for children's projects. 

 

ICT - create PowerPoints, type up creative writing into a Word Document and upload to your documents to show your teacher or put your coding skills to use on scratch or code.org.

 

Art - this can be linked to the Ancient Egypt topic or something completely different! Let the children get creative and choose something they will enjoy. The artist Rob Biddulph will be carrying out LIVE art lessons on Tuesdays and Thursday at 10am. 

 

Music - dance around while enjoying some music, sing along on YouTube, maybe even get the recorder out - if you dare!
