Year 5: Monday 23rd March

Bore da,
First of all I would like to thank you for your support during these uncertain times.
You would have had a look through the pack that I have sent home over the weekend and maybe even completed some of the activities. If your child has seemed reluctant to do any of the work or has not seemed themselves, this is understandable. We are all feeling the pressure of this situation and we have to put the well-being of ourselves and our families first.
If your child is not ready for this new way of learning yet, they can have a go of some of the online games and activities on the three online platforms which are in their files. You could play games at home together, get them involved with planning and cooking meals and get some fresh air in your gardens, or other safe place.
If they are ready for work, here are some ideas to keep them busy:

  • Can you make a leaflet encouraging people to visit Erddig Hall? The national trust website is great and has lots of information about the history, facilities and events that they have.
  • What has been keeping you busy? You could keep a diary to record what you have been doing at home. You could use Hwb or PurpleMash for this too.
  • Did you know? You could make some fact cards of new things you have found out and share these with the class when we return to school.
  • Get lost in a book! You all know how much I love reading. You can read your book from school, books from home or even online books. Use the reading sheet in your home pack to reflect and question what you have read in the book.

I hope that these will keep you busy! Please continue to keep safe, enjoy the time with your families and pray for our whole school family.
Miss M Harper
