P5A Snow Day Activities

I hope that you are all managing to stay warm and cosy and have enjoyed spending time in the snow.

Here are a couple of activities to keep you busy…

Literacy and English

  • Can you write a winter haiku? Remember to follow the pattern of a haiku having 3 lines and following the pattern of 5-7-5.

Numeracy and Maths

  • Continue to work on Mathletics – can you achieve your Bronze, Silver or Gold award?
  • Measure the depth of the snow each hour over a number of hours. How could you present the data?

World Book Day – share a story with somebody in your family.

There are also other activities on the website for you to have a go at. Remember to bring in the activities that you have completed or send in some photographs.

P5B Weekly Blog


We watched Mark’s story about him getting scammed. His friend got a new game called Deal or Death 2 but a week later it needed an update so he downloaded an update and it said ‘just click here and Deal or Death 2 will update’. So Mark clicked it and it said ‘you have updated Deal or Death 2 and it said ‘click here to get Deal or Death 3’. Mark was shocked. Deal or Death 3 shouldn’t be out by Christmas. So he clicked it and it said buy Deal or Death 3 for only £19.99 so Mark went and got his mum’s credit card and got Deal or Death 3 but when he clicked on it the game didn’t arrive. So he went to see his mum and she was on the phone talking to the police. Mark had spent £500. His mum was upset and angry. We learned we shouldn’t click on things we don’t know what they are on the internet or use a credit card without permission.

Maths and Numeracy

We have been doing money. We added some coins like 50p, 20p, 10p, 1p, 2p and £1. We have done some change so if you went to the shop you could be like Sally. Her mum gave her 50p and she spent 48p. Her change would be 2p. At the beginning of change I did not really get it and now I know how to do it. I think it is quite easy now.



I like reading because it helps me read more big books. I like reading because you get to read books that you never would read. At the moment I am reading Horrid Henry. I like Horrid Henry because it is my favourite TV cartoon. I am reading Gangsta Granny and it is very good because it is funny. I like Gangsta Granny because it is by David Williams. I love his books. In class we are reading altogether The Person Controller by David Baddiel.



We have been making calendars for Christmas and we had to make our own pictures for the boxes and colour them in. Then we got numbers to colour in and it was fun. Today we have Art and we are making Christmas decorations. We are making little presents and then decorating them.



We have been doing words that have a silent w. For example wrote, wrestle, wren, wreck. We have also been doing wordsearches as well.



In French we have been doing fruits and veg. We have been doing quizzes. It has been a lot of fun .


Golden Time

In Golden Time we do lots of fun stuff like play games and art and lots of fun stuff.



In library we pick a book and read it. I always pick big, thick books because I like hard books. I pick Horrid Henry books because they are fun.

In Art we have been doing our placemats for the Christmas Fair for this Saturday and we are doing our own advent calendars.
