Year 5

Our class has been named after Princess Gwenllian. Here is some information about her.

Gwenllian was the daughter of Llywelyn the last ruling Prince of Wales (“Llywelyn The Last”). After Llywelyn’s death in 1282, the whole of Wales came under the rule of King Edward I of England. Edward sent Gwenllian, who was a 1-year old baby at the time, to be imprisoned in an English convent so that she would not have children who might fight once again for Welsh independence. Princess Gwenllian lived at the convent until her death 53 years later, unaware of her heritage.

We learnt about World War 2 bombing and what bombs hey used like the incendiary bomb which spat out fire when it hit the ground. We also learnt about the gas bomb that spread gas every where but the Nazi’s did’t drop any because Britain had gas masks to protect them from the gas.

In English Lesson, we have been looking at Punctuation , Homophones and Diary writing. In our punctuation lesson we re-wrote a part of Kensuke’s Kingdom and added punctuation. In our homophones lesson we learnt what they are and had been given a sheet to underline them. In our Diary Lesson we had to get words, and then take examples from an  extract of the words we thought of.


In maths we learnt about the three different triangles (Isosceles, Equilateral and Right angle) and drew them in our books. And today (Friday 7th December) we went on Mathletics.



In Geography we made a timeline about Martin Luther King and his important times.

Animation Homework

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Hello Year 5!

Following our morning looking at our new theme for September, Animation, I would like you to design a Mind Map showcasing your ideas and questions around the theme.

Are there any reading or writing activities that you’d like us to do?
Can you think of a topic of individual presentations or group discussions?

Can you think of any data handling tasks that would work well with this theme? e.g. surveys, creating tables and various graphs.

In terms of money, is there work that we could do looking at profit and loss and comparing the success of different animated films?

Are there any tasks that you would like to do in the Expressive Arts (e.g. music, art, drama)?

Can you think of work that we could do on the iPads or our laptops?

What would you like to learn about ‘Animation’? e.g. would you like to learn more about different techniques used in animation or would you like to learn more about its history?

Bring in your ideas by the end of term (24/7/18) and I will ensure that we use as many of them as possible from September onwards!

Don’t forget – if you make your own animations over the Summer holidays – you can bring them into school to show your classmates at the beginning of the new term!

We have been working on co- ordinates.
