We are half way through week 1 of a new way of doing 'School'. Hope you are all adjusting to the new routines -parents and children!! Please try to get as much fresh air and exercise as possible-be inventive!!! Spend quality time together when you can and try to have regular meals and a good sleep each night.
I hope the work is proving ok so far. We have been advised to not 'overdo' schoolwork while everyone is settling into the new lifestyle but there is plenty of extra stuff on all the websites. I am trying to develop the functions of Class 5 team so please try it out and let me know. You should be able to upload photos/work onto your file in Classroom notebook on our class team. Any issues with passwords or logins I can sort out remotely.
Please contact me via hwb email if you need me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please try & message your friends and family in whatever ways you can to stay connected but also stay at home as directed. I am thinking of you all. Love & prayers Mrs Jones
Due to the current situation around COVID-19 pupils may be working some of the next term remotely. In order to help parents and children with this we will be setting tasks to complete on their online platforms (such as Hwb and Purple Mash) and also sending some work home in a Home Learning Book. Unfortunately we do not have the resources available at school to print out all of the work for every pupil in the school, so we will also be uploading some tasks and work to class pages. Parents are not necessarily required to print all of this work at home, but if you can help your child read the work on the computer, they can write the answers or complete the tasks in their Home Learning Book. Could you please ensure that anything printed off, or completed on separate sheets of paper, is stuck into their books.
We absolutely appreciate that this is going to be a difficult time for everyone, and will support parents and children as best we can remotely. If you require further clarification about tasks set, pupils can email their class teacher using their Hwb email addresses. We politely request that these email addresses are not used for any other reason, we will however be monitoring our email@example.com email address to deal with any important enquiries.
Hello Class 5
Hope you are all well. We have posted here the suggested home learning activities for next week. This is a new thing for all of us. Please do not get anxious or stressed about any of it and if your parents need to find out further information or need to clarify anything please do not hesitate to email me.
It is important for the first few weeks to settle together at home with this new situation and get into some sort of routine so do not be worried about getting everything done. Your health & well-being are my main priority. Many of the suggested activities are designed to be fun and done together!!
I will be thinking of all of you & your families.
Please find below a non-exhaustive list that might help those affected by school closures due to coronavirus, compiled by home educators.
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda! Croeso i 2020!!
Gobeithio pawb yn hapus a roedd Nadolig yn bendigedig!
(Hope everyone is happy and had a fantastic Christmas!)
It was great to welcome the class 5 pupils back to school today. The Christmas holidays seem to have flown by!
We have lots of exciting learning experiences in store for this term. Our theme is "To infinity and beyond-Earth and Space!" We hope to arrange a visit to Techniquest and we will explore the concepts of space exploration, the relationships of the planets in our Solar System, relative sizes and distances from each other, space links to Wales and a whole range of other things. We will of course be celebrating our Welsh identity and culture as St David's Day approaches and the Eisteddfod is a highlight of this term. Finally the term will be rounded off with celebrations of Easter.
I will be posting the Theme Overview, the oracy homework and this term's project homework directly after this for your information. I wish you all a very Happy & Healthy New Year and look forward to working together again. If you have any queries, please contact me.
(Mrs C Jones, Class 5 Teacher).

Class 5 Projects & Miscellaneous Homework 📚
I have just had the pleasure of reading the projects about the 20th Century completed by Class 5 and I would like to congratulate the pupils on the excellent standard of work. I am very impressed by the research and IT presentation skills. I have been entertained and informed, gained a lot of knowledge and found out some fascinating facts.
Thank you Class 5 for all your efforts and thanks to parents and grandparents for your support in this work. I hope you all enjoyed the learning experience.

Welcome back to Class 5 for the Autumn term 2019. It is lovely to see pupils who were with me last year again, and to welcome the new Y5 pupils. We have enjoyed a very busy start to the term and have a lot of things to look forward to as we make progress together along our learning journey.
Our topic this term is Time Travellers-20th Century with a particular emphasis on WW2. We have arranged a visit to the WW2 museum in Swansea Bay and other workshops to take place in school. We are excited to learn more!
Please see also on our class page the overview for parents and the homework activities. Any queries about any aspect of life in Class 5, please contact me.
Best wishes Mrs C Jones (Deputy Head/Class 5 Teacher)
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda-Happy New Year to everyone!
Thank you very much to all pupils & parents for their good wishes, cards & presents at Christmastime. I hope everyone enjoyed their break.
We are all now back in the swing of a new term which promises to be busy & exciting. Our theme is 'Castaway' and focusing initially on the book Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We hope to have a Tropical Island Day!
The Eisteddfod will take place on Wednesday 20th February and we have lots of great competitions lined up.
We are also involved in an exciting Lead Creative School Project with a group of girls from Pencoed Comprehensive and Creative Practitioners Glen & Amy from the company 'Winding Snake'. Our aim is to create a short film, incuding animation to help the transition process between primary & secondary school.
Welcome to Class 5 - Mrs Jones!
Welcome back after the lovely long hot Summer we have had. I hope you have all had a refreshing Summer break and you are ready to enjoy learning in Class 5 this year.
Welcome to our returning Year 6 Pupils-you look really smart with the ties!
Also welcome to our new Year 5 Pupils-I am sure we are going to have a lot of fun this year and achieve well.
Please children & parents do let me know if you have any ideas or skills to share with us to enhance our learning and experiences. We already have a visit to Big Pit this month!
