Year 5/6 Mrs Edwards / Mrs Mead
Croeso i Dosbarth Coch. Your teachers this year are Mrs Edwards and Mrs Mead. We are really looking forward to this academic year and have lots of exciting trips and challenges planned. Please check our class page regularly for updates on what we have been doing.
This year weekly homework for Key Stage 2 will be computer based. We have created a laminated sheet for each pupil with their personal login details for each account and these have been sent home.
The school has subscribed to Mathletics to assist our pupils in practising their skills at a level which is tailor made to their ability. Pupils can gain points each time they use Mathletics. We recommend that pupils attempt to gain 500 points each week.
The school has subscribed to Bug Club which is an online reading resource. Each pupil has been allocated books that match their personal reading ability. Bug Club requires pupils to read a text and then answer targeted questions about the text to assess their understanding.
Each Monday pupils are given a list of 10 focussed spellings. These are ability matched to each pupil and will be assessed at the end of each half term. Pupils are encouraged to practise these spellings at home and transfer these to their writing.
In addition to the weekly computer based tasks pupils will be given research homework based around their topic. These tasks will be a 'menu' of choices where the children can choose to complete the activities most interesting to them. They will not be required to complete every task.

Visit to Twmbarlwm
We had a taste of the resilience Tori would have needed to do this when we embarked on an expedition to the top of Twmbarlwm Mountain. I was really difficult but we helped one another and felt extremely proud when we reached the top. It was exciting to see our school from the top.
Commando Joe Launch
We had such an interesting day when we launched Commando Joe. We have to be reciprocal when we were searching for the clues to find the pieces of the puzzle. It took ages to find our last piece. The anticipation of what might be in the box was so exciting! We can't wait to start using the activities and equipment in the top secret crate.
