English Homework - Diary recounts

 

As we have been writing recounts in our English lessons, we would like you to keep a diary about all of the exciting things you have been doing in the holidays.  You could take a photo of a place you have visited or activities you have done in your garden and write some sentences about them. Either choose your favourite day and use the blank template provided or use the daily diary template, writing a short recount of each day for a week of the holiday. Remember to include the skills we practiced before the holidays, such as time conjunctions, subordinating conjunctions and feelings. 

Maths

Here are some maths activities to help you practise your skills.

There are some great Maths games on the free website Topmarks, I've included some which are listed below, do investigate the site and find your favourites.
