Our Trip to Llancaiach Fawr

As part of our Tudor topic, on Tuesday 9th October 2018, the children of Year 5 stepped back in time when they visited the Tudor Llancaiach Fawr Manor House . The children were guided around the beautiful manor by some of the costumed servants of Colonel Pritchard who were happy to share interesting historical information about their lives.  It was an enjoyable and informative visit and certainly helped the children to put what they have been learning in the classroom into context.

A Visit from a Tudor Lady 

On Tuesday 13th November 2018, Year 5 had a wonderful time meeting a character from Tudor times. She was a fine Lady, married to the man in charge of justice in Wales during Queen Elizabeth I's time. The children had a fantastic time learning about the Queen's peculiar sense of fashion, her love of 'leap' dancing, weaponry, food, medicine and so much more.

Our Myths and Legends Day

To launch our new and exciting Spring Term topic, on Wednesday 10th January 2018 Year 5 held a 'Myths and Legends' day. The children were asked to come to School dressed up as a character from a myth or legend, and research their chosen character with a view to presenting them to the class. All the children looked amazing and worked incredibly hard to make the day a wonderful success. 

Once again, a BIG thank you to all the parents for their help and support and for making this such a memorable day!

Our Trip to Cilfynydd Environmental Education Centre 

To launch our new and exciting Summer Term topic 'Go with the Flow', on Monday 23rd April 2018, the children of Year 5 visited Cilfynydd Environmental Education Centre. We had so much fun pond dipping and exploring an aquatic habitat. The children observed a diversity of different creatures from leeches to dragonfly nymphs.  Furthermore, we learnt lots of interesting facts about the River Taff, and carried out a fair test to see which part of the river flows the fastest.
