Class 13


Croeso I Dosbarth 13, 2018/2019

Welcome to the page for class 13. We hope that you find all the information that you need here.

We welcome special visitors into our school, people who would like to share their experiences with our learners. If you know of anyone who would take the time to visit our learners, please let us know.

During the Spring term, children will be given the opportunity to have weekly sessions with coaches from Welsh Cyling to complete the ‘Go-Ride’ program. 

This term in Science we will continue to learn about the adventures of explorer Anthony Jinman; whilst in DT we will make our very own Welsh spoon using clay.! RE will examine religions within the local community and in ICT we will revisit Hwb as a learning tool and get creative in using our new Apple Mac computers!

We are also looking forward to our Spring visit to the Newport Medieval Ship; launch day of our new topic ‘Spring into Wales; and sharing learning with you during parent consultations.

Our ‘Parental Information Sheet’ for Class 13 can be found here.

Home Learning will be given out every Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday. Please ensure the children maintain the high standards of presentation and layout that they produce in class. Home Learning can be found by clicking here. Please remember to check out our twitter #GPSClass13 every Friday, as we announce our class home learning champions. 

Home learning club is every Monday in Mrs Thomas’s class, if your child feels that they need any further support.

We encourage learners in Class 13 to change their reading books daily. Each child gets a ‘Davies’ point if they return their book, so please encourage them to do so.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate in contacting myself via the school office. Many thanks,

Mrs Davies.
