Rooms Library A, Library B & 5 - 8 Instructions
will work. Google Classroom for Rooms Lib-A to Rm 8 is mentioned.
Today at 5pm we will post information on your child's Google Classroom page. This will
outline some activities they can choose to work on over the holidays. Please ask your son/
daughter to log in to google classroom to make sure access is available. If you have any
issues with login access please email your child's homeroom teacher.
● Depending on their age, students can be encouraged to read, or be read to. They can
also help, by reading to their younger siblings, if they’re also home.
● Keeping a journal or scrapbook during the time period is a way for them to collect and
create. These could incorporate drawings, photos, plans and stories of things they’ve
done, all of which will help their literacy skills.
● Helping out with cooking and baking makes use of their maths skills and shows them
how maths is all around them. Helping with housework also teaches your child lots of
important skills about being organised, teamwork, co-operating and contributing.
● Talk to your child about how (critical) thinking is important to make sense of everything
they do at school and at home. Find some news items or opinion pieces, and discuss
whether you each agree with what’s been said. Why? Why not?
Keep in mind these are just ideas that you may want to use with your children, and you will
know how much or how long to spend on this. Remember, official distance learning begins on
Wednesday the 15th of April.
