Croeso i Blwyddyn 5

We are the Year 5 cohort and are split into Class 9 and Class 10.  In Class 9 our teacher is Mr Heritage and in Class 10 our teacher is Mr O Connell, supported by our LSA, Miss Kinzee.  


We are an ambitious, enthusiastic year group who thoroughly enjoy participating in learning.  We enjoy learning new things, respect each other and work well in a safe and happy environment.

This term our topic is Stargazers where the children will take a journey through Space, the final frontier.........Navigate beyond the sun: the Magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system.  We will investigate the eight planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.  We will take a look at the moon:  a celestial body that orbits Earth.  Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure humankind has ever undertaken.  Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?  

We will listen to the children's ideas about what they would like to learn about within the topic and incorporate these ideas into our teaching and learning.  Please discuss ideas with your children and let us know.  We would love to hear your fantastic suggestions.  

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:


We will continue to consolidate the 4 rules of number and this term we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages.  We will study shape with a focus on perimeter, area and volume.  we will continue to consolidate our previous maths knowledge and understanding and work to solve a range of reasoning activities.  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.
