Mrs Bignell, Miss Braid and Mrs Davies would like to welcome you to the Class 12 page.
Spring Term / Tymor Y Gwanwyn
This term Year 5 children will be looking at the topic of 'Up and Away'. This is a new topic to year 5 and pupils have thought up some fantastic ideas for activities that they would enjoy taking part in. Many of the ideas link to air travel / air vehicles and the sky (clouds, weather). Some of these activities will be used in class to learn and develop relevant skills and some will be offered as homework opportunities.
We have also been busy writing stories, using the 'Mantle of the Expert' approach, which involves using drama in a fictional context. In this case, I was a publisher requesting the help of the Expert Group: Writer's Workshop (the children) to create some stories in order to publish a book that would save the company from financial ruin. The children became engaged in this and feedback was generally very positive.
PE / Addysg Gorfforol
Year 5 PE lessons are every Monday and Wednesday.
During the first half-term, the children will take part in gymnastics and creative dance lessons.
Indoor kit will be required for these as follows:
Black shorts, Black Mountain Lane T-Shirt.
During the second half-term, pupils will also require outdoor kit, as we will begin preparing the pupils for the school cross country event.
* trainers and spare socks
* dark tracksuit bottoms / top (depending on the weather)
Pupils in Year 5 are encouraged to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities. Please refer to the extra-curricular bulletin for further details. Year 5 pupils showed excellent skills in hockey during their PE lessons in the Autumn Term and I would love to see as many as possible attending the Hockey Club on a Monday after school.
