Croeso i Flwyddyn 5!

Welcome to Year 5!

Elsa Well-being Timetable May 2020

May is quickly approaching us so, why not try this ELSA Support May Wellbeing Calendar at home? There’s one activity each day which can help maintain a positive mind through these tricky times!

School Closure Learning Packs

Here are the Home Learning Packs for Y5.  They are in PDF format.  The learning packs have been designed so that children do not have to access a digital device although we recognise that some of the tasks and activities could be completed with the use of the device.  If your child chooses to do so that is fine with us.  We just wanted to be able to cater for all children and we are aware that not all children have a device at home. 


We appreciate that this is an extraordinary way of learning for your child.  Please adapt the acticities if you believe they are too difficult or too easy for your child.  As you are aware teachers are currently working to ensure that the children of NHS workers are look after and are also beusy preparing work for your children when the next 4 weeks are up. 


Should there be any issues with accessing the home learning packs then you can contact If there is a way of solving the problem e.g. by making a task easier / harder then do so.  Emailing the above email address should be a last resort. 


Thank you for your support.  Stay safe.

Spring 2

Hopefully Spring will be here soon and we will start seeing signs of new life. Therefore our topic for Spring 2 will be 'Plants for Life'.


During our topic we will look closely at different plants, identifying their main parts and functions. We will carry out a number of different investigations to find out what it is that plants need in order to survive and reproduce. We will also look at the life cycles of different plants, insect and animals that play an important role to our environment.


We will visit 'Plantasia' in Swansea for our school trip where we will discover a world of weird and wonderful plants. Date - Wednesday 25th March.

Spring 1

During Spring 1 our topic will be 'Heroes and Villains'. We will look at the different traits that both heroes and villains possess, who are our heroes,

discussing whether certain characters are heroes and villains and research local heroes and villains.
