Welcome to Class 8
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.
Friday 3rd April
Good morning all!
Here are some Easter activities for you to try at home.
Take a look at these Easter egg hunt clues. Can you write your own for an Easter hunt in your home. Could you make them rhyme?
Jar of Gratitude
Decorate a jar or container using paper, pom poms, stickers and jewels. Each day of the Easter holidays think of one think that you appreciate or something that makes you happy. Then write it down and put it into your jar.
You can then read the contents and see how many things we all have to appreciate.
On that note, I would like to thank you all for your hard work and efforts both with these activities and on Hwb too.
There will be no work posted on this website or Hwb until Monday 20th April.
Take this opportunity to relax and have fun with your family members.
I would like to wish you and your families a very Happy Easter.
Take care, each and everyone and keep smiling.
See you soon,
