Year 5

Croeso i Flwyddyn 5!

Welcome to Year 5's Class Page!

Croeso! Welcome to Year 5's class page. We would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that you are ready for another term of learning and fun! We had an absolute blast during the Autumn Term and have really enjoyed getting to know everybody really well in our classes. All of our learners have very much enjoyed learning lots of new skills over the first term of the year. A huge "da iawn" to everyone in Year 5 for their excellent efforts so far - we're sure that this will continue through the Sping term!


A big thank you to all parents for their continued support - please keep an eye on our Google Classroom page for regular updates and key information.


Diolch yn fawr,

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 do not send reading records into school - parents/carers can however continue to fill them in at home. Your child's teacher will also be keeping track of their reading in school.


  • Your continued support from home with "keeping the basics on the boil" is greatly appreciated. This should include reading, spelling and times tables practice at home on a daily basis for approximately 15 minutes.


  • Year 5's P.E. sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays, where learners will be expected to come to school wearing their kits. Please wear a school P.E. t-shirt, shorts/tracksuit bottoms/leggings etc. and trainers. We recommend that learners bring plenty of water to school and wear extra layers as the colder months approach; jumpers, hoodies, gloves and hats are all recommended. We will continue to have one P.E. lesson outdoors year-round (weather permitting) so make sure you are dressed appropriately for the conditions.



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?
