Welcome to our Year 5 class page!
To end the busy year our final topic is Energy.
This project has a focus on science and teaches children about the different sources and types of energy. They will use their ICT skills to research the debate on positive and negative impacts of energy to then create letters, leaflets and arguments. The centre of the topic is focused around creating a mini wind farm where children will be designing wind turbines, recording scientific information and reporting on their findings.
Barry Island School Trip 11th of July.
4th - 8th of July
We have been planning a story for a competition this week. The competition is called 'Ancient adventures' and the children have to write a 100 word story about a historical figure or era. Some have chosen to write about Anne Frank, some WW2 and others the Victorian era. Miss Hill-Tout has loved reading all their wonderful ideas.
We have also been writing our own poem based on the Magic Box by Kit Wright. They have had excellent ideas of what they would keep in their box ranging from dinosaurs to chocolate and the 'fresh smell of bread'.
As well as language and maths, they have been looking at non-renewable and renewable sources of energy in their topic work. We have used the ipads to research coal and the coal miners and how important coal was in the South Wales Valleys.

This week we have continued to practice counting money and working out change, they have worked really hard on different techniques to do this and Miss Hill-Tout is so proud of all of them with their perseverance. We have also begun to write a persuasive letter about school uniforms, research renewable and non-renewable energy and have really enjoyed creating our own raps with Mrs Herco -Thomas in music.
As you all know the Summer Fayre was on Tuesday the 14th and a big thank you to all who came and supported the school and especially year 5. Our stress balls, glasses and lucky dips were a great success and the children had lots of fun making them. Diolch yn fawr!
