Class 5

Welcome to Class 5! Croeso i Dosbarth 5!
Teacher: Mrs Williams, Teaching Assistant: Miss Mills

Autumn Term 2022

 

Our value this half term is 'perseverance'.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”  
James 1:2-3

Context

Our context for learning this term is called 'The Blue Abyss’

 We started our context learning with a fantastic trip to Bristol Aquarium and we are enjoying learning about the ocean.

Our class book is The Lost Whale by Hannah Gold.

 

We were lucky enough to have a visit from an experienced diver Paul Johnson.  He has dived in the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean and Red Sea.  He shared his fascinating stories about diving, including exploring sunken war ships and finding a canon ball that was 400 years old!  We enjoyed looking the artefacts and equipment. 

 

Remember

Our PE day is THURSDAY - please wear your PE kit to school every Thursday.  

Reading books: every child has a reading book from our class library and will take them home to read.  Home reading books can be changed whenever necessary.  All pupils have a Giglets account where they can find virtual books to read at home. 

Homework

Pupils have an ongoing PIP (Personal Interest Projects) book for your child to  work on throughout the term.  Bring them in to school to show us what you have been working on.

Spellings Tests are every MONDAY.  New words will no longer be sent home on paper.  All words will be displayed on Google Classroom.
