Year 5/6

Spring Term


This term our topic is Dwellings - the pupils in class have been working hard to generate ideas and areas they would like to investigate linked to our theme.

They have decided to cover:

  • The Tudors 
  • Tudor dwellings
  • The Great Fire of London
  • Comparison of Tudor, Victorian and modern dwellings
  • Complete work on Titanic and compare dwellings of each class on board

Shoebox appeal for the homeless

We are so proud of the pupils hard work to provide some care packages for the homeless at Christmas time. They wrote letters, phoned companies and some even went into stores personally (with adult supervision!) and persuaded companies to help with our appeal. 

Pupils successfully created nearly 50 care packages; wrapping them carefully and writing messages of kindness. The pupils hard work resulted in some very happy people in the Ogof Adullam drop in centre in Swansea this Christmas. 

We would like to thank you all for your generous donations  - you helped us to make a difference!heart

Year 5&6

Looking back 

Welcome to Year 5&6 - we have had a fun start to the term already! 

The children have decided on where they would like to stop on our historical timeline and have selected the following areas:

  • Dinosaurs 🦖 
  • Ancient Egypt  
  • Ancient Greece - Gods 
  • The golden age of piracy 
  • Victorians
  • Titanic

We will be answering questions posed by the pupils and investigating using a range of sources. 


Science - we are learning about space and looking at the planets in depth; starting with our own beautiful planet 🌍 

We are currently investigating the best materials and designs to protect our ‘eggstranauts’. The pupils are working in teams to create capsules to drop from a height of 3metres. The pupils must be able to take their egg in and out of the capsule, amongst other set rules. 

Keep an eye out for the results on this page..
