Year 5

Blwyddyn 5 / Year 5

Spring Term – Tymor y Gwanwyn


This term pupils have chosen to study Safari; Travels in Africa. We will be travelling through Africa studying people, places and animals. We will look at the climate near the equator and make comparisons with here in Wales, we will research areas with a limited supply of clean water and as we move through the topic we will study the history of Ancient Egypt.

The school Eisteddfod is fast approaching and pupils have been busy practising their folk dancing (Dawnsio Gwerin) in P.E sessions. Many pupils are also busy practising for the Urdd Eisteddfod where they will represent Plascrug in a variety of competitions. Pob lwc i bawb!


Health and Wellbeing

Pupils need their P.E kits (suitable trainers, shorts/joggers, t-shirt/jumper) on a Friday and their swimming kit on a Tuesday, we will be swimming until the February half term. After the half term P.E kits will be needed on Tuesdays and Fridays until the Easter holidays. It is important that pupils bring a change of clothes for P.E.


Looking ahead

It won’t be long until the Year 4 and 5 trip to Gwersyll yr Urdd Glan Llyn is upon us. Letters will be sent out in due course.
