Year 5/6

The Year 5/6 phase group is divided into four classes and each class has 4 class teachers. Mrs Hughes (being covered by Mr Harding whilst on maternity leave), Mrs Nurse, Mrs McCarthy and Mrs O’Connell -James (being covered by Miss Starr whilst on maternity leave) are the class teachers. Miss Carroll, Mrs Naqvi, Mr A Waters and Mrs Jones are the LSA’s. Mrs Watkins will be covering language interventions and will be covering senior leadership PPA.

This Spring’s topic is going to be ‘The Capital’. We are going to be looking closely at our home capital city here in Wales and it’s heritage. We will be focusing on it’s geographical and historical features and comparing them with modern days innovations. We will research famous people who have strong links to Cardiff and surrounding areas. These include the famous author Roald Dahl and sports personalities. We are hoping to visit Cardiff Bay to look at monumental buildings and natural and man made features of the area. The pupils will also be given the opportunity to create their own investigations and research.
