Year 5

    Welcome to Year 5 

Mrs David, Mrs Oram and Mrs Jones are really looking forward to teaching your children again. If you have any questions or want to speak to us please ring the office to arrange an appointment or catch us at the end of the day. smiley


Here you will find lots of important information about what's going on in Year 5.  We will also be showing some of our fantastic work as well as photos and school trips.


No pencil cases or personal belongings should be brought to school except for a lunch bag.

Children will be given a reading book to take home, please make sure it is back in school on a Monday.


We understand this is a worrying and strange time, please be assured that we will do everything in our power to ensure your child has the education they deserve.

Working hard, having fun and feeling safe is our priority.




Reading is a focus this year.  We will be listening to the children read throughout the week. Our Guided reading sessions will take place every Monday morning.  Please encourage your children to use their Reading Eggspress accounts at home.  



Physical Education

Our Swansea Bay Booxing sessions are on a Thursday afternoon.   Children must wear their PE kit to school every Thursday.


Up until October half term we will be doing 2 sessions of PE a week. Mrs Oram's class will also need to wear their PE kits on a Monday, Mrs David's on a Wednesday and Mrs Jones' on a Friday.




Weekly spellings will be sent home on a Friday. Tests will be every Monday morning. Weekly Big Maths sheets will be sent home weekly, please take the time to support your child and work through the questions on the sheets. You can always log into your Reading Eggspress/Fast Phonics/TTRS to complete levels whilst you are at home. 







Autumn Term Topic

Our topic this term is Up, Up and Away!  We will be looking closely at Space and flight. We introduced this topic with a fabulous day packed full of exciting activities.  We made paper mache planets, marshmallow constellations and produced some great planet fact files.
