Home Learning Tasks

There are lots of things you can do at home to continue your English home learning that may not need an electronic device. Here are a few ideas of things you can do: 

  • Write a letter to your future self. You are living through history and it will be interesting to read back your thoughts and feelings. 
  • Keep a daily/ weekly diary of everything you're feeling. This is good for your mental well-being also. 
  • Write a letter/ note to a family member you are not able to see at the present. Perhaps you could send it in the post of take a picture of your handwritten note and email it through to make someone's day extra special. 
  • Write a note/ letter to anyone who you are greatful for during this time. 
  • Write a story about a bug you find in your garden. Where do they go? How are they feeling right now? 
  • Look below to see the Roll a Dice Challenge- you don't have to write anything down but it will help to speak to someone. 
  • Write a list of things you miss the most and why you miss them. Things you might have seen as important before might not seem that way now. 
  • Watch a film and write a review- maybe this could be a weekly thing that you could add to and share with others.
  • Read a book and write a review or carry on a character's story. Audible have free audio books which are great to listen to instead of watching TV. 
  • https://www.pobble365.com/ Pobble 365 has images and story starters if you need some inspiration- you need a device to see the image but you can write your story down on paper. 
  • Create a poem about anything you wish to. You could take inspiration from outside or from people who are greatful for. 
  • Below are a selection of poems that you could learn and perform- we'd love to see some performance poetry whether it be a published poem or your own.
