Welcome to Year 5!
Croeso i Blwyddyn 5 / Welcome to Year 5
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" ~ Nelson Mandela
Mr Williams is the year 5 teacher. Our class is built around HHHR (Honesty, Humour, Hard work & Respect)
We want the class to be a place where children feel safe and secure and have the right environment for making the most of their opportunity to learn everyday.
This term we will be looking at ‘Inventions’. As well as looking at inventors from around the world, we will also be looking at other aspects of inventions such as the science behind them and how geographical location could have an impact on inventors. The topic will be supported by a range of non-fiction and fiction books. Our main books will be Cogheart, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, So You Want to be an Inventor? and Girls Think of Everything; Stories of Ingenious Inventions by Women.
Reading books ~ We understand the importance of your child engaging with the home school reading we provide. To avoid reading folders being brought to and from school on a daily basis, we ask that your child bring ONLY their current/completed reading book to school either on a Tuesday OR Thursday so that we can quarantine them at school for 72 hours and then replace the reading book for your child to bring home.
Reading records for parents and teachers will be completed on Google Classroom. An assignment has been set on Google Classroom for each pupil to complete their reading record with their parent on a weekly basis.
We encourage the use of Oxford Owl, HWB and Doodle Maths.
All of which the links are below.
We look forward to a fun filled and exciting year.
Mr. Williams 🌍🏴👨🏼💻
