Croeso i Flwyddyn Pump!
Together, With God, Everyone Achieves More!
Welcome to the Year 5 webpage! As well as celebrating some brilliant learning, I hope you will use this page to find out information and access additional learning resources so that it becomes a really useful communication and learning tool.
Here you will find information about our learning, activities and places to look for help or further challenge.
If you would like some activities to challenge yourself over half-term, please see below where you'll find different challenges to complete. Don't forget to read regularly and keep revising your spellings!
A great way to revise is by checking over previous homework and recapping over what you have learnt.
Beth ydym ni'n dysgu? What are we learning about?

Dates this half term
P.E Every Monday we will have an inside gym focused PE lesson. Correct kit is required.
Games Every Wendesday afternoon. We are learning about large ball skills and focusing on Netball and football. Please ensure appropriate outdoor clothing is in school during the winter months i.e. long sleeved tops and tracksuit bottoms.
Everyone should be reading regularly, where possible every day. It is important that we read a variety of texts to build our fluency and understanding. Please comment and sign in your child's 'Reading Together' booklet every time you hear them read. If your child does not have one of these booklets, they should aim to complete a book review in their Review Diaries after each completed book. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school.
Please continue to check the quality of written tasks completed at home - please ask your child if they have focused on their targets and put 100% effort into the task as they would in class. I am now expecting pupils to be writing extended sentences, using an extended vocabulary range, connectives and various techniques to make their writing more interesting e.g. exciting 'Alan Peat' sentences, simile, metaphor, personification. Writing should be accurately punctuated with full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas to separate clauses and speech marks should be used to denote direct speech. (Reminder - speech should be punctuated before closing speech marks.)
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
