Fun Activities for the Holidays – P4


Normally our holidays are filled with fun-packed days out, travelling to new places and spending time friends and extended family. This year, unfortunately, we can’t do these things, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun at home.

Here are some suggested activities you can do by yourself or with your family. These are not activities for SeeSaw, rather they are just ideas you may like to try. Click the activity link to take you to the relevant website.

Have a lovely holiday and we will see you all back on SeeSaw on Tuesday 21st April.

STEM – Home Learning Videos

I have uploaded this weeks STEM home learning videos for different areas of the school to watch and possibly try at home.

Again, these can be watched and discussed on Seesaw with your teachers or you can try some of the activities and again share this on Seesaw.

The videos are split into different levels, early, first and second. However, any child can watch any video and contribute however they want.

Also, please also watch this weeks Science Story and share your answer by voting.

I look forward to hearing, on Seesaw, how you use these videos.

Please also share if you have been doing any other STEM related activities at home that I could share with other children in next weeks videos.

Good luck.
