Croeso i’r Dosbarth 5

Miss Clark and Mrs Johnston would like to welcome you to Class 5 web page where we will keep you up to date with all of our wonderful learning throughout the school year.



Something important to remember about our class!

We have launched our Summer term project. We had a fantastic launch day and the children thoroughly enjoyed going on a special trip to Noahs Ark Zoo Farm in Bristol. The children learnt about different types of animals, their characteristics and the habitats they live in. They really enjoyed an educational workshop of animals from Africa. 

Our new project is called……….
‘The Secret Life Of Animals’ 
a spin of the popular film…...

We always listen to the voice of our pupils and here are their thoughts on what they want to learn about this project…….

Here is the photo collage of their trip to Noahs Ark Zoo Farm……...
