Spring Term 2024


Welcome to Year 5!

Croeso i Dosbarth Pump!


Welcome to Year 5! This will be an incredibly busy year and as a team, we will work through it together. 


This term our enquiry topic is Cardiff Bay, starting with the current day and travelling back throughout time studying the changes that have taken place and why.


At the start of term Year 5 went on the train for a trip down to Cardiff Bay. Whilst there they visited the Senedd building which is one of the most eco friendly government buildings in the world. During their visit they had the opportunity to question MS Jenny Rathbone about her work there. Jenny is passionate about children’s rights and was overwhelmed by the knowledge our children had about them.

We travelled back to the city on the Princess Katherine boat which docked at Bute Park and we sauntered back to school from there.

A very worthwhile trip where the children learned about Welsh democracy and sustainability. We'll be using our knowledge from the trip to design our own 'Green City' where which incorporates as much eco friendly sources as possible to ensure the city can mainlly sustain itself and its inhabitants.




PE will be on a Thursday afternoon and then Games on a Friday afternoon. You'll need to come into school wearing your PE kit/ Long hair will need to be tied back and all jewellery removed. We keep as safe as we can during physical activity - 'Safety! Safety! Safety!' is our little motto. 

As you know PE; which could be gymnastics, dance or games; is an important part of your healthy development. It is as just an important lesson as Maths and Literacy and it is one of your rights. As you know a healthy body and mind work together and so we must all take part in PE activities (adults too) to stay focused, unless there is a good reason not to e.g. injury.


We will still be using Google Classroom regularly to set & return homework. But we also have our Active Learn log-ins for additional maths activities, TT Rockstar log ins for mulitplication games practice and Oxford Owl for online reading focus. Hwb is also a fabulous resource for Welsh activities, E-safety tasks and reminding us about the New Curriculum. If you've forgotten your password, come and ask me. 


Thanks for your continued support,

Mrs. Nicholson and Mrs Weston
