Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas holidays and enjoyed spending time with your family. Welcome to the new term where we will be starting our online learning journey from today. I will upload activities on Hwb and Seesaw daily for you to complete. You can complete and save your work on J2e and Seesaw or if you wish you can email your work to me at SumpterJ5@hwbcymru.net
I look forward to hearing from you.

Stay safe and I will see you all after Half Term.
It was lovely seeing some of you in school this week and being able to work through some of the tasks. I will attach another English booklet for those of you who managed to work through the one I put on last week. The Maths this week is a fun mystery where you need to solve the clues - you can use a calculator if you have to.
I can't wait to see some of you this week and catch up with what you have been doing during lockdown. Remember, if you are not coming back in I can still see your work if you do it on HWB. I have added the Talk4Writing pack that I will be doing in class this week. Try and use j2e5 to write your poems - I can share them with the children who are coming in so that we can all help each other.
For maths this week I have added some Emoji maths sheets - try and make up your own to challenge your parents.
I hope you are all looking forward to enjoying another week of fantastic weather. This week we are going to focus on some science fun. Ancient Romans had no need for dentists, because of one food they didn't eat. Modern dental hygiene would have been quite unnecessary for ancient Romans living in Pompeii, as they had impressively healthy teeth. What do you think the one food they didn't eat was?Though Pompeii citizens never used toothbrushes or toothpaste, they had healthy teeth thanks to their balanced and healthy diet, similar to what we now call the Mediterranean diet.
Try the experiments and activities below.
For maths this week please do the following pages.
Y4 Book 3 pages 10 - 12 (Negative Numbers)
Y3 Book 3 pages 10 - 12 (Ordering Fractions)
I have changed the link to the books - hopefully this will make it easier to access them.
Hope you are all well and ready for some more activities on the Romans this week. You can read the story of Romulus and Remus and have a go at drawing your own story map. I've included a link for a BBC music programme on the Romans - something a bit different.
The links for the Abacus Text Books are below.
Try to complete pages 4-9 this week.
Even although we haven't had the best weather, I hope you are still all managing to get plenty of fresh air and exercise. I can see that some of you have been looking at the work on Romans on HWB - I hope you are enjoying this topic. If you use J2e5 for your online work, I am able to see it and comment on it. I love seeing what you have done, so please try and use your HWB account as much as possible.
This week I have added some work on Roman Numerals and Roman Mosaics. You can print out the Roman Numeral Booklet or write the answers in your books.(The answer sheet is for parent eyes only!) I've added a link for making Roman Mosaics online but have a go at making your own with cut up bits of coloured paper - much more fun.
