Home learning activities January 2021

As we are once again in a National Lockdown due to  Covid-19, the links below will take you to the remote learning. This is provided in order to allow your child to continue their learning at home, should they feel well enough to do so. Please click on the link to access the website, where you will find a video showing a qualified teacher leading the learning, or BBC Bitesize videos and quizzes.

 

For English and Maths, some units of work are covered over 2 or 3 weeks. For these subjects, please follow the lessons as instructed below for that week's learning.

Week beginning 4.1.2021

 

 

English

Complete one lesson per day. Find the lesson by following the link below. 

Always start from lesson 1. 

Follow the lessons in order - one per day  - depending on how many days you have to complete home learning for. 

 

As we never finished reading Holes, I found some activities based on the book.

The video says you should go back and check the previous video, but you don't need to as you have heard part one of the story.

 

Lesson 1: Reading - Holes by Louis Sacher (to analyse character, part 1)

 

Lesson 2: Reading - Holes by Louis Sacher (to analyse character, part 2)

 

Lesson 3: Reading - Holes by Louis Sacher (to analyse author's use of language)

 

FRIDAY 8TH JANUARY

 

Either complete lesson 3 (above) or, if you have not written a book review for Holes, I have added 2 templates below for you to choose from.

Have a look through the other activities on the Powerpoint and decide which ones you could still complete. 

 

Alternative / Extension activities over three days:

The above is focusing on Part 1 of the story, but we have read up to Part 2, chapter 29. 

If you would like to read the rest of the story, I have put a copy of it below.

 

Alternatively you might  want to listen to the Part 2 of the story.

Click here to listen to a YouTube playlist from Chapter 29.

 

Have a go at the questions and activities, including designing a book cover for the story.

 

Happy reading!
