Welcome to Class 5!
Croeso i Dosbarth pump - Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to class 5 with Mr Davies.
This half term we will be learning all about Wales and Britain in the 19th Century. Most of us know this period as 'The Victorians'. The children will be learning all about the lifestyles of the Rich and Poor during this time, their forms of employment, and all about the Monarchy. The term will end with a trip to the Big Pit Mining Museum in Blaenavon, where the children will see first hand what it was like to work down the coal mine.
Please can we remind you about the importance of being in school on time each day. Try to ensure your children are in the yard by 8:55am every morning. School finishes at 3:30pm, unless the children are involved in one of our after-school club activities.
The children bring home their reading books and homework books each day and it is expected that they read every day and complete their homework each week. In school we focus a great deal on understanding the content of what is being read; asking a variety of questions about the content in order to ensure they gain a full understanding of the plot, characters and themes. Asking these questions at home will improve your reading.
Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled with names and PE kits are in school at the beginning of term to ensure your child is able to get changed for physical education sessions and maintain good hygiene.
Please remember to practice and learn those Learn It’s!!
