Blwyddyn 5

In Year 5, we witness a significant improvement in the students' independence and sense of responsibility. Here, pupils truly take pride in their learning journey. They not only suggest topics but also begin applying their ideas to the curriculum, offering suggestions for lesson across all areas of learning and identifying the purpose of these lessons, linking them to the 4 purposes of learning. The pupils apply their knowledge to create challenges that they then complete independently, deciding on the best skills and methods to accomplish them.

Numeracy, literacy, and digital competency skills remain at the forefront of our focus, where we continuously apply our previously learned knowledge with new skills into real-life situations. In particular, pupils become experts in using Adobe Creative Cloud Express and Google Sites. They thoroughly enjoy creating their own websites.  Each pupil has their own digital passport where they can save and showcase all the digital tasks that they undertake. We use valuable apps such as TTRockstars, Spelling shed and Darllen co. to support our learning and always encourage these to be used at home too!

Some of the highlights of year 5 include our entrepreneur project where pupils decide upon their own product to make. They then take part in market research; design make and finally sell these projects at the school Christmas Fayre. It is always inspiring to see the ideas that the pupils come up with! They also find creative ways of spending their profit. Another firm favourite among the pupils is our Space topic. The pupils take part in a range of activities including launching their own water rocket! Not forgetting our annual trip to Manor Adventure where the pupils take part in a range of outdoor adventurous activities, identifying skills they never knew they had!

Physical education lessons take part every Thursday afternoon and pupils need to ensure they come to school in appropriate kit on these days. P.E lessons include a variety of sports, from invasion games to gymnastics, dance and athletics. Pupils learn the techniques for these sports as well and valuable skills such as team building, coaching and leading their peers. We also have the opportunity to attend fantastic BMO sessions and a block of swimming lessons. Details of when these are held are included in the school’s monthly newsletter.
