Class 5

Year 5 2020-2021

The Class Teacher is Miss Phillips and the Class LSA is Miss Arnold.


Our topic to start the Autumn Term is Rainforests.  The children have chosen this topic themselves and have planned according to the 6 Areas of Learning and 4 Core Purposes, what they would like to do.  We are hoping to organise a field trip to support our learning and further our life experiences.


Spring Term 

Once returning to face to face learning there will be a focus on Empathy.


Summer Term

Whole School topic of ‘Perfect Pembrokeshire.’  Class 5 will begin with a focus on Caldey Island and the surrounding area.  The pupils have been busy asking questions about Caldey Island and planning their ‘Mission’ sessions around the 6 Areas of Learning and 4 Core Purposes.
