Week ending 29th May

Hi guys,

Hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely weather. It’s the last week of May, so from next week we will start to unwind and enjoy some more fun activities. These are the activities suggested for this week-talk to your parents and try to work them into your schedule. Don’t forget to share with us what you have been up to. We love hearing from you all. You can message through Seesaw or to the home learning email – nurneyhomelearning@gmail.com

Have a great week and enjoy the bank holiday weekend


I hope you are all continuing to read or listen to audio books.

This week we’re going to focus on persuasive writing. As you know we are missing our school tour this year due to the Corona Virus. So I want you to think about your ultimate school tour – if you could go anywhere for a school tour where would it be? Mount Everest? Disney World? The Great Wall of China? The Burren?

Do a little research on the place you want to go – how much would it cost to go there, how long would it take to get there etc.  Next,  I want you to write a letter to Mr. Duffy to try to persuade him that your choice would be a great school tour destination.

Use the persuasive writing anchor chart below to help you. Start by explaining where you want to go and giving a bit of information about it, then present your reasons why this would be a good choice for a school tour. Try to include at least 3 reasons in your letter.

This week I would like you to get outside and look for maths in your environment.

Can you create a maths trail for a sibling to complete or maybe you could create a trail and post/email it to a friend to complete in their garden.

Have a look around and see what 2D and £D shapes you can find around you?

Can you measure the perimeter of your house?

Can you create a map of your house/garden?

Watch this traffic cam at Abbey Road in the UK (or check out a different road). Watch it for 15minutes and tally the number of black cars, red cars, blue cars and people you see and create a bar graph to show your results.



Have some fun practising your drawing skills with some of these step by step YouTube videos.
