Year 5: Monday 15th June

Bore da,

We hope that you have all had a fun weekend. I am missing you all and looking forward to seeing you all soon. Some of you may be feeling anxious about returning to school and that is fine. We have had a long time out of our normal school routine and it will be difficult to get back into. If you are worrying about returning because you have not done as much online work you really do not need to worry. During this time at home, then most important thing is that you feel happy, safe and comfortable. When we have the two days in school I will ensure you are with a group you feel happy with, we will have a catch-up and I will prepare some fun activities for us to do.


Today, in the UK, is National Smile Power Day.From the good morning greeting and the first, “How are you today?” present yourself with a smile. No matter where you are, how you slept, what happened yesterday, starting the day with a smile is certainly more empowering than a pout or grump. Starting with a smile first is easier than trying to get there later in the day. 

When you smile at someone, you are telling them that they are valued and worth the smile that you just gave them. Smiles are morale boosters and confidence builders. You might have been feeling a bit down lately and like you need a hug, your parents and siblings might feel like this too. So start the day by giving a smile!

Smiling at someone can help them to relax and relieve their stress while at the same time, it will make you feel right. Even if you do not feel like it, smiling will lift your mood and can make you a happier person.

Don’t worry if you have work that you have not completed yet, you can go back to it and work from there. Just take your time, try your best and remember to ask me if you need any support.

Here is your work for the start of this new week.
