Week Beginning 18th May
On Monday 18th May the Urdd are releasing this year’s Peace and Goodwill message. (Remember we looked at last year’s message? It said ‘digon’ a lot!)
https://www.urdd.cymru/en/peace-and-goodwill/?surveySuccess=1&qsid=1554824363#1554824363 to find out this year’s message.
Maths and Numeracy
The theme of this year’s Peace and Goodwill message is ‘Stop the Clock’. If you have not yet mastered telling the time - using digital and analogue clocks continue to practise this week.
Also can you estimate and time events?
Think about something you are going to do e.g. 10 star jumps, write your full name 5 times, say your 6 times table, jog 6 laps of your garden etc. Estimate how long it will take you to complete each task. Write your estimates in a table. Then, ask someone to help you time how long it took you. How accurate were your estimates? Can you calculate the difference between your estimate times and the actual times? Record all your results in a table – in your yellow book or on Hwb
Language, Literacy and Communication
Oracy: Do you think the world will be different as a result of the Coronvirus? How?
Reading: There is another reading quiz on Google Classroom for you. This week it is about the Peace and Goodwill message. Remember to keep reading your own books and use the books and reading questions on Giglets too.
W: Create your own peace and goodwill message. What message would you like to share with the world? You could record yourself saying your message - send your videos or copies of your speeches to me.
Cymraeg: Visit learn-welsh.net Practise the activities and games on ‘time’. This will help you learn to tell the time in Welsh too!
Health and Wellbeing
Take a photo of yourself making the triangle image (representing the Urdd symbol) with your hands to support this year’s peace message.

Remember to add @GarthPrimary if you tweet (and check you have your parent’s permission)
Make sure some of your timed activities in your maths task are physical activities e.g. 10 star jumps, jog 6 laps of your garden, 20 bounces on your trampoline etc.
Create a piece of art of the World of the Future you would like to see. What would be the important things you would like to include? You could complete your piece of art on anything you want - you don’t have to use paper! You could create a junk model of your future world, or a picture outside using natural materials you find while out on your daily walk, or paint your picture on a pebble and leave in your garden for everyone to see etc.
Remember to take a photograph of your work and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
