Year 5

Hello and welcome to the Spring term. Even though it was different for us all, I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year.


We find ourselves distance learning again but fear not as I have some enjoyable activities for you all to complete on our Google Classroom - please access this via your Hwb.


Things are a bit different this time around as all of the activities set must be completed and sent back to me for marking. There will be a video on Google Classroom showing you how to do this. Feedback will be given on each piece of work as soon as possible.



Most of the activities set do not need the use of a printer, but if you have one and would prefer to print of worksheets please feel free to do so.


I am online all week to answer any queries so please get in touch, via email (RichardsH293@hwbcymru) or Class Dojo, if you are struggling with any of the activities set - I will get back you as soon as possible. Please note that Wednesday afternoon is my planning time so responses may take longer. 


Many thanks, as always, with your continued help and support.

Mr Richards.

Reading for pleasure


We will be using this resource to encourage Reading for Pleasure at home. It is just a little 'challenge' sheet with reading related tasks, see which ones you can do. Adults: the aim is to get the family reading and talking about books. (known as 'book blether' in Reading for pleasure circles). My hope is that you can share pictures and tell me what you have done, I can then share with the class and encourage a reading community.


If you are looking for ideas to develop Reading for Pleasure, Mr Wallace has added a web page to the school website - in the children section. There are links to websites and book recommendations.

If you are interested in more ideas for reading for pleasure, the open university website has a wealth of ideas and case studies to learn from.
