WELCOME TO CLASS 6
Information regarding activities that can be completed at home.
We are looking at ways of providing work for children who may not be at school at this time. In our most recent letter we informed you that we were working on providing distant learning and staff are continuing to work hard to provide this facility if the school is directed to close.
Here are links to suggested resources that may be of use at this time:
Reading – www.oxfordowl.co.uk
Maths – www.topmarks.co.uk
If your child logs into their Hwb account (https://hwb.gov.wales/) they are able to access Just2Easy resources such as j2Blast.
Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful work this week!
Diolch yn fawr.
Here's a selection from our J2e folders.

As a small group, or just with an adult, have fun reading the Easter story together and answer the questions at the bottom of the pages. At the end, design a picture or collage of your favourite part of the story.
Let's get messy - Make some salt dough creations
Salt Dough Easter Eggs
250g plain flour
125g - salt
125ml - warm water
Put the salt and flour into a bowl
Add small amounts of water at a time and mix together with a wooden spoon.
Once it starts coming together you will need to use your hands.
Knead the dough for at least 5 minutes
Once your dough is ready, roll out to no more than 1cm thick
Create your egg shapes in the dough
Leave on a windowsill to harden. This could take a few days. Remember to turn them over so both sides harden.
Once completely hard, decorate with pretty patterns and bright colours.
