Home Learning

Reading: Reading is extremely important and you should be making time to read each day. Each week, I will put a daily reading activity for you to complete. 



Monday - Complete the comprehension attached to the link (see answers here).


Tuesday - Listen to an audio book. If this is not possible, read a paper book, newspaper or magazine or something else of your choice. You will need to create an account to listen to the audio books.



Wednesday - Download an eBook. If this is not possible, read a paper book, newspaper or magazine or something else of your choice. You will need to create an account to download the eBooks.



Thursday - Read a book of your choice to someone in your family.


Friday - Design a new book cover for the book you're reading. Make sure it has the main character on it, title, author and include a blurb (a small description of what the book is about).




Writing: Each week, I will put a daily writing activity on the website for you to complete in the book you took home. Also, use the Writing Expectations provided in the links (Year 4 and Year 5). Also, see the sheet for writing expectations on the front page of your book (Year 4 & 5 Spring and Year 4 & 5 Summer).

Please see below your activities for the week.
