Year 5

Hello and welcome to Year 5.

Dosbarth Eryr 2020-2021

Our class name is Dosbarth Eryr which is Welsh for Eagle class.


Teacher – Mr Allman

Teaching Assistants- Miss Edwards and Miss Dillon

Year 5 also work with Claire from Activate drama on a Friday morning each week as part of their work on Expressive Arts.


It is lovely seeing the children back in class happy and healthy.


This term our topic will be “Healthy body, Healthy mind, Healthy me”. We will be exploring and learning how to keep our bodies healthy whilst also learning about the importance of mental well-being and mindfulness. Our topic will also link to our science topic of the human body and healthy living.


In literacy we will be covering a range of fiction and non-fiction genres including persuasive writing, biographies and narratives. In maths we will be recapping on work from year whilst starting our year 5 maths work with place value and learning our times tables up to 10 x 10. There will be weekly times tables tests so it is important for children to practice at home.


Spellings will still be sent home weekly but via seesaw with children practising in school before their weekly test. We will be doing lots of work using HWB, Google Classroom and Flipgrid this year and the children will become more familiar with this as the year goes on.


PE and Forest School

PE will be Thursdays and Forest school will be Fridays. Please can children come to school in their appropriate kits for both days. They will not require their school uniform. Claire drama will also be working with the children on Friday mornings.


Please can children bring a healthy snack to school each day and plenty of water.
