Welcome to the Year 5 Rainbow Fish class page!

Croeso pawb! Your teacher this year is Miss Dalton and our TAs are Mr. Wright and Mrs Davies. We’re so excited for Year 5 and all the fun we will have this year.

Our Topic – Autumn 2021

Our topic this Autumn is the Stuarts. We will be learning about James 1, The Gunpowder Plot, the Great Plague and Charles 1. We will hopefully be going on a school trip as part of our topic as well.

Home Learning

A menu of SIX tasks will be given and you will have a choice of which activity they complete over each two week period. By the end of the term you will be expected to have completed all six tasks in full and to the best of your ability.  This year the homework can come into school or can be shared via the Google Classroom. Your work will still be shared and celebrated within the classroom, as we love to see your hard work.

Children will be set maths tasks on Mymaths to complete weekly.
