Welcome to Y5 Croeso I Blwyddyn 5
I thought it might be useful to jot down a few of the things that I will expect from pupils in Y5 in the coming year.
Pupils will need a small pencil case with notewriter type pens in black or blue, HB pencils, ruler,erasers and pencil sharpener. Coloured pencils are best but felt tip pens can be used also. Fountain pens are not allowed. It is best that children do have their own equipment as this allows them to get on with their work far faster and cuts down on talking and fussing.
Homework will be given on a Monday and is to be brought in on Friday. The homework will usually consist of reading with a termly task to complete each week based on the book read.
Also there will be a maths sheet or My Maths activity based on the topic that we are covering in class. Homework is designed to be around an hour a week and must be completed on time.
PE will be on a Monday and girls and boys will need an Oystermouth school PE kit. PE will usually take place in the gym where children can run around in bare feet. In the summer months PE may move into the yard and trainers will be needed.
Games will take place on Wednesday. Children will again need school games kit and trainers. If we are able to use the park then football boots and warm clothing will be required. We are very fortunate that we have the use of a gym in this school and I like to give the pupils as varied an experience as possible. Therefore the games timetable will not be purely based around rugby and soccer. Long tracksuit bottoms and a wind-proof top are a good idea for when the weather turns cold.
