Welcome to Class 5! Croeso i Dosbarth 5!
Teacher: Mrs Williams
Summer Term 2023
Our value this half term is 'thankfulness'.
Be thankful in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you - Thessalonians 5:18
Our Creative Habit of Mind this half term is 'persistence'.
Our context this term is "Diversity"
We will be learning about our culture and identity, considering diversity within food, language, fashion and dance. As well as exploring traditions within our local community, Wales and the wider world.
Our class novel is The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q Rauf.
We had a great first day and Class 5 showed excellent team building skills, working together to build the tallest tower!
Our PE day is THURSDAY - please wear your PE kit to school every Thursday. PE kit is a white polo shirt (or your house colour) and grey or black shorts/joggers & trrainers. Plain kits please, no patterns or large logos.
