Year 5

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

Happy New Year from Year 5!

We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break and wish everyone a Happy New Year. Unfortunately we can't all be back in class together to start the Spring Term, but we will be learning from home to begin the term instead.


Make sure that you are logging in to our Google Classroom every day to find you daily lessons and activities to complete while you are at home! Keep up the excellent levels of effort and enthusiasm that you showed us last term and we are sure that you will keep making fantastic progress.

A few important pointers for parents:

  • Homework will be assigned every Thursday and will need to be completed by the following Tuesday. All tasks will be uploaded to Google Classroom and should be completed and turned in online – no homework books will be given out this year.


  • Reading books are expected to be brought to school every Monday and Thursday. Please could parents/carers ensure that reading records are updated and signed regularly before being sent in to school.


  • Your continued support with daily home learning is greatly appreciated. This should include reading, spellings and times tables at home on a daily basis for approximately 15-30 minutes.


  • Year 5's P.E. sessions will take place on Tuesdays, where learners will be expected to come to school wearing their kits. Please wear a school P.E. t-shirt, shorts/tracksuit/leggings etc. and trainers. We recommend that learners wear a warm jumper/top over their t-shirts, as well as wearing additional layers where appropriate, during the colder months.


If you have any questions for your child's teacher, please feel free to contact the school or alternatively send an e-mail to:




Diolch yn fawr,

Mr Edwards & Mrs Driscoll



We appreciate your continued support with your child's learning at home during the Covid-19 pandemic. If for any reason the school has to close for a continued period, then all learners will be expected to complete a selection of daily tasks at home.  Below are a list of possible questions that you may have about learning at home, with answers and links to appropriate resources:


Where will I find any work that has been set for my child?

All work will be posted online using Google Classroom.


How does my child log on to Google Classroom?

Follow this link to the Google Classroom login page - classroom.google.com 

Children use their school email address to log in (e.g. - JoeBloggs@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk)

Password is the same as logging on to Chromebooks in school.


Where should my child's work be completed? 

Work can either be completed using Google Docs / Slides / Drive and submitted on Google Classroom, or written into Home Learning books that have been sent home.


I have a problem or a question for my child's teacher. How can I contact them?

Children are more than welcome to post questions to their teacher and peers on the Google Classroom stream. Should parents want to contact teachers directly, please send an email to:

  • Mrs Driscoll - mrsdriscoll@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk
  • Mr Edwards - mredwards@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk


My child has completed all of the work that they've been set. What now?

  • Teachers will be updating Google Classroom at appropriate intervals with new tasks should the need arise. Please visit Google Classroom regularly to keep up to date.
  • Please feel free to also push your child on in areas that you feel would benefit them (e.g. practising areas of Numeracy/Literacy that they find difficult, learning a new times table, extra reading, spelling/punctuation practice, investigating a new topic that interests them etc.) 


Which times tables should child be practising?


What other areas of Mathematics should I be covering with my child?
