Choose whether you would like to write a senses poem about summer or a list poem.

Use one of the attached poems and write your poem in that style


In summer

I see...

I smell ...

I hear....


I love summer!

Summer is hot



Remember to use a variety of adjectives and some powerful verbs.



Activity 4 – As it is the last week before the summer holidays we thought it would be a nice idea for you to write a letter to your next teacher telling them about what you like about school and what you are looking forward to in the next school year.  You could also tell them about any worries you have for the new term.

How should your letter start?

Don’t forget to finish it off by saying who it is from.


Year 1 - Please continue to practice sounding and blending words when reading each day.


Use ‘Phonics play’ (login details:  march20, Password home) to practise reading high frequency words and to practise sounding and blending words.

Year 2 Complete the ‘Week 7’ spelling activities. (see attached sheets)

Spell as many words as you can using the letters from ‘Summer holidays.’  For example: sum, hole

Which season are we in now?

Design a poster to show how we can stay safe in the sun.  Remember to make it colourful.



Our weather changes depending on the season but in other parts of the world the weather is either hot all of the time or cold all of the time.

Look at a map.  Can you find the equator that runs round the middle of the earth?  Countries close to the equator have a very hot climate and the countries furthest from the equator have very cold climates.

Can you find 3 countries with a hot climate and 3 countries with a cold climate?


What would you need to take if you were going on holiday to a hot climate or a cold climate?  Use the template attached to draw what you would pack in your suitcase for one of these places. 

Ext:  Explain why you have packed each of the items.


Art/ Design Technology

Choose from one of the activities below:


Create a picture of a sunflower.  You could use paint (print or dot or hand print or use a fork to paint petals) crayons or chalk or you could tear up pieces of paper to collage one or even collect natural resources from outdoors and make a natural collage.


How to draw a sunflower


Sunglass Designs

Design a pair of sunglasses, either by colouring in the attached sheet or make your own pair for yourself or one of your toys.

We would love to see your designs so don’t forget to post pictures of them.
