Design a scenery out of cardboard boxes. Then write a play set in that scenery and perform it to your family.

In your best handwriting, turn your play into a story. Remember to include lots of description and maybe figurative language to create atmosphere.


Read your favourite book and dress up as that character for a day. Take some freeze frame photographs showing what that character is like/something they did in the book.

Find a programme on TV and mute it. Read the subtitles instead. Can you keep up?


Watch a TV programme and ask your parents to pause it and pick out words from the show for you to spell. When you get it right you can carry on watching. If you don’t, you must write it down 10 times before you can continue watching.

Make a crossword using the year 5 spellings/your key spellings in your diary.

With a family member, get a deck of cards. Take it in turns to draw a card. Then times the 2 cards together. First one to answer gets a point. Jack=11 Queen =12 King=100


First, research what rust/rusting is. Then, take 4 identical metal objects (like a nail) cover one with oil, one with Vaseline, one with paint and leave one as plain. Put the nails in a pot of water. Predict what you think will happen to each nail after 1 week. Every day for 1 week (or longer) check the rust on each nail and make notes on its appearance. Which nail will rust the most?

Topic (Geography & Art)

Use a mirror to draw yourself. Remember the 80 - 20 rule (80% looking at the mirror, 20% looking at your paper) You can use anything to create your drawing.

Use a cold cup of tea (without milk) and paint a piece of paper. Then draw a map of your home onto it. Remember to label important places/features in your home.
