Welcome to our Year 5 class page.
It is an exciting transition into Dosbarth Bedwen. Children are working very hard this term to become independent learners. Developing independence and taking ownership over their learning is crucial at this stage in their Primary schooling. You too can help with encouraging this at home supporting children to make their own choices and carry out tasks in an independent way.
Our topic this half term is scream machine. We are already enjoying Numeracy tasks such as exploring databases, reviewing statistics and considering place value to investigate fastest and steepest roller coaster rides across the world. We will enjoy both Geography and History tasks during this fun filled topic. We look forward to the trips ahead linking to this theme.
In language we are exploring Myths and legends finding out about Gods and mythical creatures. We will use these as a stimulus for writing our own epic Myth.
Such an exciting Term, enjoying new beginnings together learning and being our best here at Barry Island Primary.
