Second Level

Edinburgh Learns General Home Learning Grids

While you are unable to be at school please find some activities that you can be working on at home. These can be printed off or can be completed in your child’s Homelearning jotter. For more support for your child, please look at the ‘Early Level’ or ‘First Level’ sections on the website. 

Literacy 

Reading 

If your child has a school reading book at home they can practise reading this. Reading for enjoyment should also be encouraged by reading lots of picture/story books at home. Activity suggestions below can be completed for any book.  

You could also encourage your child to create their own questions about their reading books using the question starters below. By the end of Second Level children should be creating a mix of Lower order and Higher order questions.

Writing

Numeracy 

Playing lots of number games will help your child to develop their number skills. You could play board games like Snakes and Ladders and Ludo, use online games or apps or encourage your child to create their own game to reinforce the maths concepts they have been working on.

General 

Your child could also carry out a research project on a topic of their choice. Encourage them to research their topic at home and decide on a way to share what they have learnt. This could be through creating a fact book, a powerpoint or keynote presentation, an iMovie or film or a poster.
