Children's Activities for school closure

If the school is closed or your child is off for a period of time but well enough to try some school work below are some generic activties children can be doing.  There are also links to TTrockstars/numbbots for maths activites and Oxford Owl for reading. Please also look at your child's class page for information from the Teacher of what they will be learning.

 

Reading:

Child reads to an adult

• Adult reads to a child

• Discussing illustrations, why an author is the child’s favourite, comparing stories by the same author and different ones

• Paired reading (child reads a bit, adult reads a bit)

• Asking questions about the text

• Predicting what may happen • Looking at how the author has described a person, place or event • Finding features which keep the reader interested (description including similes and metaphors, a mix of long and short sentences, questions and that moment where you go wow! What is coming next).

• Reading different texts (eg comics, newspapers, leaflets, dictionary, the Bible, advertising cards etc)

 

Writing:

• Writing for different purposes (eg newspaper report, a diary, a poster advertising something, a persuasive letter, a factfile about something they are interested in)

• Using key words from the statutory word lists • Practising the cursive style of handwriting with the lead in and lead out stroke.

• Punctuation – full stops, capital letters, commas, exclamation marks, question marks, speech marks, brackets, colons, semi-colons, dashes, ellipsis…

• Spellings from their key words list (perhaps build up a bank of words relating to their summer term topic)

 

Maths:

• Number bonds to 10 and 100

• Times tables (upto 12 x 12 in Year 4)

• Inverse operation (3+4=7, 7-4=3) to make links

• Fractions, decimals and percentages (eg 50% = ½ = 0.5)

•Telling the time • Comparing measures (cm – m, m – km, ml – l, g – kg etc)

• Recognising 2D and 3D shapes
