It is important that you are ready for all the challenges that lie ahead as a year 5 or 6.
Therefore, make sure that you keep all of your basic skills exercised during the holiday.
It is always good to see what you have been getting up to over the course of the holiday, but let’s see how creative you can be with the way you present this work. You could produce a diary of a few of your most enjoyable days, including photographs and drawings. Alternatively, you could produce a collage or montage, for example, of things you have done.
Let’s see who can come up with the most creative ideas
It is important that you read regularly. Reading is not part of homework, it is an every day activity. You should read aloud to someone at least once a week, and discuss your reading matter with them. Think about the characters, why they act as they do and what might happen next.
It is very important that you keep your mental and oral skills ticking over with Maths concepts. Make sure you know your tables up to 12. It also helps to be fast on your number bonds up to 100. If you still need to work on some of this, then remember, practising a little and often, produces the best results.
Work on money and time calculations – giving change from £10, £20 or £50 and working out time differences are the type of things you could be doing.
HOWEVER, REMEMBER, IT IS A HOLIDAY, SO MAKE SURE YOU ALSO HAVE TIME TO RELAX!
