Swtan (Year 5)

Welcome to Swtan Classroom!

Class teacher: Mr Owain Gwilym
PPA teachers: Mrs Elen Owen & Mrs Lisa Thomas

PE: Thursday afternoon

Reading books: It would be appreciated if you could listen to your child reading and discuss the books with your child and to write any comments on Seesaw. You are welcome to put recordings of your child reading on Seesaw, too. Also, your child has access to the reading program 'Reading Eggs', 'Giglets' and Darllenco.

Our theme: War and Peace
‘War and Peace’ is our theme this term. After much discussion, the children have decided that they want to study the Second World War and we have already started this work. In addition to this, we will study wars in Wales and learn about significant people such as Llywelyn Ein Llyw Olaf and Owain Glyndwr. The children will also learn about influential peacemakers, such as Malala Yousafzai and Nelson Mandela. In addition to this, the children will learn about current events such as the Ukrainian War. By the end of the theme, we hope that the children will understand the consequences of war and appreciate the importance of peace in the world, while showing empathy towards different people and their situations.

In our Mathematics lessons, we emphasise mental numeracy work, developing and practicing the four rules, and developing these skills cross-curricularly.

The pupils will have the opportunity to keep physically and mentally healthy through Physical Education lessons, PSE sessions and Growth Mindset lessons. They will be given opportunities to appreciate music and to express themselves creatively through art and technology work.

We will reflect on Remembrance Sunday and learn about Christmas celebrations around the world.
