Year 5 are working hard as always, we're all putting super effort in to our new spelling scheme ...

Superb commitment and effort is being made in after school clubs ...

And an outstanding effort has been made in our eisteddfod homework project. Keep your eyes peeled for the winner being announced 🎉

We've been testing which types of metal and other materials conduct electricity to build torches to help us on our Alchemy adventures

Alchemy Island


The spring term means Year 5 will be leaving roller coasters and theme parks behind and starting a new, exciting theme 'Alchemy Island'. 


This theme will take us on a mysterious adventure, teaching us how to read maps, understand coordinates, and learn about changing materials through the ancient art of alchemy.


Year 5 have been out this afternoon looking for portals to transport us to mystical, adventurous realms which will help us with our adventure story writing!!!


If your child has access to an electronic device such as a tablet (iPad/android) or a smart phone, a free app called 'Epic Citadel' can be downloaded and played to help them get the hang of some terminology and processes we will be looking at in class.  It involves building a city, navigating around maps and following quests to unlock information about precious jewels and their properties


Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5's class page.  A bit slow to start with but keep checking back to see updates of what we are doing in and out of class, some of the lovely work we are doing, hear our news and keep up to date with any events we are involved in.

Christmas Events

As you are all aware the Christmas concert is fast approaching (Thursday 8th December, 9:30am/5:30pm) and the children are all being super stars at practising their lines and song words.  Where appropriate please encourage your child to keep practising at home as we would like them to shine like the stars they are on the day!!


Year 5 will be visiting Craig-y-Nos Castle on Wednesday 30th November to participate in some traditional Welsh Christmas activities such as carol singing arts and crafts.  


The school annual Christmas Fayre will take place on Friday 2nd December, a letter has gone home advising parents/carers about the running of the day and where and when they may collect their children.  




Year 5 staff team 2016/2017

Miss B Hartwell (Teacher) and Mr N Jones (Additional Practitioner) will be available from 8:30 every morning should you wish to discuss anything.

Year 5 are showing, again, how much they deserve their end of term toy day by sharing games they have brought from home, working together and including everyone. Da iawn Blwydden Pump!! 

Craig Y Nos Country Park 


Year 5/6 had a fantastic time at Craig Y Nos country park, taking part in some traditional Welsh Christmas activities and Geocaching around the park itself.


Geocaching is using a hand held GPS to navigate around areas using grid references (coordinates). We were looking for hidden treasure! We also got to sing Plygain Carols and hear about how people celebrated Christmas in Wales throughout history.  Keep scrolling down to see some photos of Year 5 enjoying their day.
