Croeso i Ddosbarth

Miss Thomas

Welcome to class 9. We are an enthusiastic and friendly class who enjoy participating in learning. We love to learn new things, respect each other and work well in a safe and happy environment.


This term in Year 5/6 our Topic is 'The Pharaohs'. We will travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries, curse, mummies and kings. We will find out about life on the river's fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. We will unravel the secrets of ancient tombs and find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods. If your child would like to carry out some additional independent work based around this topic, we would thoroughly enjoy celebrating it in class. Here are some helpful, child-friendly websites to support the topic:


So far this year we have looked at addition, subtraction and multiplication. This half term we will be focusing on dividing using the coin card method and formal methods. We will also look at 2D and 3D shapes and co-ordinates. Your child can use their Times Tables Rockstars and Active Learn log in to support their learning in Maths. 


We are currently looking at the topic 'Hamdden' and 'Gwyliau' to reinforce the language used in school here is a useful website for your child to play games.


In year 5/6 the expectation is that all children practise their spellings, reading and times tables for homework. Tests in spelling and times tables will be carried out weekly. Any additional homework is always welcome and will be celebrated in the class. 


Our P.E day is Wednesday, please make sure your child has a P.E kit in school all week should any changes arise.
