A Big Welcome to Year 5!
It has already been a busy start to the year, and normal (well, nearly normal) service resumes after months away from whole class learning. We welcome everybody back and have already been impressed with the attitude and manner in which last year's Year 4 pupils are prepared for the challenge and vigour of this year's work, responsibilities and learning opportunities.
This year's class elections took place on Friday 11th September and although there was little time to prepare for the candidates, there were some brilliant speeches all round, which included great enthusiasm and determination. The results for both year classes were as follows:
|Class||Position / Responsibility||Pupil|
|5L||Class Councillor||Elen H|
|5L||Vice Councillor||Nicole C|
|5L||Eco Warrior||Riley D|
|5L||Criw Cymraeg||Iwan D|
|5G||Class Councillor||Eliza M|
|Vice Councillor||Lexi H-S|
|5G||Eco Warrior||James J|
|5G||Criw Cymraeg||Frankie B|
Congratulations to all the above for securing your roles - we look forward to seeing what ideas you bring and contributions you make this forthcoming year to support school improvement.
Our Wonderful World!
Our first topic this year is a whole school topic that, amongst all the negativity and bad news, will hopefully bring us all together and celebrate all the wonderful things this planet has to offer.
As a topic, we can use it to reflect but also give opportunities for pupils to plan for the future and consider what changes we could make both locally and globally to improve the habitat in which we live.
Our first 'pit stop' is to study the 7 Natural Wonders of the world. We spent time this week discussing some amazing facts about them and then plotting the sites on a world map. Can your parents name them? Why not test their geographical knowledge?
