Ideas for Learning at Home

If the school is closed due to bad weather here are some ideas for learning at home.

  • Read every day – swap books with a friend if possible
  • Practise any sounds/words in your book bag
  • Pracitse spelling words – using different colour pens/pencils
  • Keep a diary about the weather and what you have been able to do
  • Make your own story/cartoon strip about an adventure in the snow
  • Measure the snow in your garden (how deep is it?) and keep a record of it.  Display this information in a graph/diagram
  • Investigate snow and see how long it takes to melt. Where in the house is warmest/coldest? How much snow would you need to melt to fill a cup/jug/pot/basin/bucket?
  • Build a snowman or an igloo and write instructions – include pictures
  • Make your own cards – thank you/birthday/Christmas etc
  • Use letters and pictures from magazines to create your own art work, poster or notice
  • Follow a recipe and make something tasty.  Cooking and baking are great opportunities for measuring, counting, reading and calculating time.
  • Learn a new skill – knit or crochet,
  • Improve a skill
  • Play pencil and paper games – hangman, Bingo, beetle, battleship etc
  • Play a board game – Scrabble or Monopoly
  • Write a review of a book or film
  • Listen to the radio or music
  •  Make a scrap book or personal project about an interest you have and use ICT (if you have access to it)
