Working together to achieve


Croseo i Ddosbarth Coch am Blwyddyn 5!

Welcome to Red Class for Year 5!

Year 5 will be taught by Miss K. Davies and supported by Mrs Neale.

PPA will be taught by Miss Brooks every other Tuesday.

Homework and Spellings


Homework will be sent home on a Friday and is due back into school on a Thursday. We ask that you try and complete the work set to help reinforce the learning we are doing in class.


Spellings will be set on a Monday, regularly practised in school throughout the week in school and then tested on a Friday.

Reading Books

Reading at home with your child is vital. Just 5-10 minutes a day can make a huge difference. All pupils should have access to Collins eBooks, an online tool that allows teachers to share books for children to read at home. If you are having trouble logging in please see Miss Davies at the end of the school day.

Physical Education - Addysg Grofforol

P.E. will be taught on a Wednesday. Children must arrive at school wearing their P.E. kits.


Please wear the following items to school on a Wednesday:

T-shirt - Crys-T

Shorts - Siorts

Tracksuit - Traciau

Trainers - Esgidiau chwaraeon.


Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled with your child's name.


Topic 2 - Good Times!

Our next topic of the year is 'Good Times!'. Within this topic we will be participating in a range of learning experiences across the AOLE's that investigate different celebrations and festivals from around the world, focusing on some Welsh traditions which will include Mari Llwyd.  

Topic 1 - Free

Our first topic of Year 5 is 'Free'. Over the next 8 weeks we will be looking at what it means to be free. 

We will kick start our topic with a 'Free to express yourself day' on Friday 17th September, when we will be inviting the children to wear what they want to school. We look forward to seeing the children express their personailities through their clothing and hair. We will be uploading plenty of pictures.
