Year 5

Croeso i Blwyddyn 5!


Teacher: Mrs N Shahriveri

Teaching Assistant: Mrs L Mahoney and Mrs J Phillips



My classroom door opens at 8:50am and our staggered starts means that children enter the classroom between then and 9:10am.  When children enter the classroom, they must use anti-bacterial hand gel.


At 9:10am, the door is closed and the register is taken.  Children arriving after this time must go straight to the school office.



Our PE lessons are on Friday afternoon.  Children should come to school in PE clothes on Fridays.  PE lessons will be both indoor and outdoor, so children must be dressed appropriately for the weather.



Homework is posted on Google Classroom and Seesaw every Monday.  Homework is due in the following Monday.


Homework will consist of:

  • MyMaths activities
  • using multiplication skills to play Times Table Rockstars
  • applying spelling patterns when playing Spelling Shed
  • completing reading comprehensions on Giglets
  • activities linked to our in-class learning



Our current topic is based on our local area: Merthyr Tydfil.  We will be focussing particularly on the Merthyr Rising. 


Class Story

At the moment, we are reading The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúfas as a class.  We read the story for 10 minutes a day and discuss the text.
