I hope everyone is feeling happy and well. As schools are not yet open, we will continue updating our Class page with suggested learning activities, resources and information.
Each morning I will still be saying 'Hello' on the Class Story page on the Class Dojo app. You'll also be able to ask me any questions or just tell me about what you have been up to!
Most importantly though, look after yourselves and your families and stay healthy!
Home Learning Booklets
Each week I will upload a Home Learning Booklet, full of activities for you to do. If you are unable to print this, there will be plenty of copies available for you to pick up (safely and remembering social distancing guidelines!) from the school entrance. You can choose to do these or the Maths, English and Topic activities that are being uploaded every day. You don't have to do both, although you can if you wish!
If you wish to do some reading comprehension tasks and a long writing task, there are two reading tasks and a long writing piece in this week's booklet. You could do these instead of the daily English tasks if you wish. There is also a long maths problem solving investigation in the pack
Maths, English and Topic Lessons
Each week I'll upload five Maths, English and Topic lessons for you to do. I've included answers with the Maths lessons so you can check your answers. No peeking!
Friday's lesson is a series of maths challenges on the BBC Bitesize page! They start off really easy and get progressively more difficult. Enjoy!

The most important thing you can do at home is to read as much as possible, every single day.
Try to aim for at least 30 minutes every day, but you can of course read more than that. This could be one of your own books, or your school library book, or an eBook online.
Check out this fantastic website for eBooks
You just need to click on the tap that says 'My class login' and enter the following:
My class name: stdenys
When you click on 'My bookshelf' you will be able to browse a large library of books including some well known classics.

Here are 5 maths lessons you could have a go at all to do with ratio. Try to follow one lesson each day this week. There are some questions you can download as well. You could print the worksheet or do them straight in your workbook.
Some parts might be challenging so ask an adult at home to help you if you are not sure.
During this time at home, it is really important for you to stay fit and healthy. Try doing some daily exercise. You could even get some family members to join in with you!
