Miss Braid and Mrs Whitley would like to welcome you to the Class 12 page.
In Class 12 this term we are looking at the topic 'Brilliant Britain'. During the course of our topic the children will be using their pupil voice to help determine what we would like to learn about and what activities we wish to try during our topic. We have begun our topic with a History focus of the Victorians and are excited to see where this will take us!
Alongside our main topic we will also be covering a Science topic of 'Forces', where we will learning all about the physics that surrounds us and impacts on our daily lives. We will be taking part in practical activities and investigations to support our learning.
PE / Addysg Gorfforol
Year 5 this term PE lessons are on Tuesday and Thursday but it is advisable to ensure that PE kit is in school daily in case of additional sessions - particularly if the weather has been poor on our 'usual' PE day we will try to fit in another session when it is dry.
We will take part in swimming lessons on Tuesday and Rugby on Thursday up until the half term holidays. After the holidays sessions will change to dance and gymnastics (indoors) to suit the colder, wetter weather conditions.
Swimming Lessons - Tuesdays
Please ensure that the children arrive promptly at 8.30 am. We aim to register and leave school by 8.40am in order to maximise the session time available.
Outdoor kit will be required for these as follows:
Black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms (plain), Black Mountain Lane T-Shirt, black jumper/hooded jumper, trainers, spare socks.
Please ensure earrings are covered with tape or preferably removed (particularly before swimming lessons).
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.
