Dosbarth 5

Welcome back, I hope everyone had a magical and family fun filled Christmas

The children this term are studying the topic:


                                          'Welsh Mining'

The children have decided that they would like to learn about the living conditions of those who worked and owned the mines. They have chosen to write a dairy entry, create a survival guide for those who worked in the mine and produce and record a report on a mining disaster. 


The class took a vote and have chosen to read the book Saving SS Shannon by Phil Carradice.  


In science the children will be studying forces whilst designing and making their own cars. 


PE is on a Monday.


Reading books and Homework will be given to the children on a Thursday and must be returned to school on the following Monday.


Once the reading books have been checked in class, the children are free to take them home should you wish to listen to them read through the week.


Spelling lists will be given to children on a Friday and the class are tested on the following Friday.


Maths homework can be found on the 'My Maths' website using their personal log in details. 


Please don't forget to sign up to Seesaw as the class will be putting examples of their work on there to show you.


Fruit tuck - 20p per day or a £1 per week.

We had an amazing day yesterday.  We became crime scene investigators, in order to help us to write our crime reports next week in English for the class text 'Awful Auntie'

This week in Science we have become 'Habitat Detectives'. The children have enjoyed looking around the local environment to find and explore insects in their natural habitats as part of their learning about the seven characteristics of living things.
