Year 5

Croeso i Flwydden 5.


Welcome to the new website page. Please visit our year group page regularly to keep up with the latest news and information!




Our topic last half term was the Pharaohs. The children very much enjoyed learning all about the Ancient Egyptians and have produced some really great, creative homework items. These will be displayed in the Year 5 area for all to enjoy. 



We are looking forward to our next topic, which is called 'Stargazers'. We will be learning all about Space right up until Christmas. Please open the link below to find out the Homework choices.



Stargazers Homework



Every Monday your child will be given a new spelling list which they will be tested on the following Monday. We encourage the children to practise their words daily using their spelling practice sheet. 

Book Bags


The children are encouraged to read books at home and are asked to regularly return their books when they've completed them. We change reading books on a Friday. Please ensure that all books are returned in the school book bag. 



In Year 5, P.E. is on Monday and Tuesday. We would be very grateful if you could make sure that your child has suitable kit in school (shorts and t-shirts and suitable footwear), clearly labelled with their name and that it is returned to school after each half term.



As a 'Healthy Eating' school, the children are asked to bring a healthy snack such as fruit or cheese for their morning break.

Year 5 Swimming




Year 5 will be undertaking their three week swimming course beginning on Monday 19th November and ending on Friday 7th December at Barry Leisure Centre.

During the daily sessions, the children will need to have their swimming costume, a towel and goggles and swimming caps if required. They will also need to make sure that they have a warm and waterproof coat as we will be walking to and from the Leisure Centre. The sessions are in the morning so the children will need to arrive promptly each day. 


Please can you also make sure that the children bring their underwear with them to change into after their swimming lesson (you'd be amazed how often this small item of clothing is forgotten)!

Early Bird Reminder!


We are looking forward to our Key Stage 2 visit to the New Theatre on Wednesday 19th December to see Beauty and the Beast. Get the sweet treats ready Year 5!
