Year 5 Dove

Croeso i Ddosbarth Colomen

Welcome to Class Dove's page. 

Welcome to Class Dove's page. We are Mrs Colman's year 5 class. At the moment we are settling into year 5 routines and are spending some time practising our basic skills, before we discover all the adventures to be had in year 5.


September 2020




One of our class challenges this Autumn term is to complete our 'Say Something in Welsh challenge card'. All learners that complete their card will be awarded 30 dojo points, which goes towards a prize. We are all already challenging ourselves to use Welsh in our class! Mrs Colman is proud of us!




Our topic work this term is 'Victorians'. We have been set the challenge of becoming History Hunters.



Keep checking this page over the next few weeks to see what we've discovered on our History Hunter expedition!
Here are some ideas from (Autumn 2018) on how to dress as a Victorian child or a teacher.


PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and taught by Mrs O'Brien. Please make sure that on Tuesday:

  • Your child wears PE kit to school - black or navy joggers, house colour t-shirt and trainers
  • Your child is not wearing jewellery
  • Long hair is tied back


Year 5 take part in the accelerated reading scheme, where they are given 20 minute independent reading time every day. AR is a computer program that helps to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer - passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.

Accelerated reading parent information


  • Make sure your child arrives promptly at school for an 8.45am start to their learning day
  • Your child needs to attend school before or after a medical/dentist appointment
  • If your child is ill and can’t attend school for whatever reason, then contact the school immediately
  • Encourage your child to practise their basic skills - times tables, reading, spelling, writing using one of the exciting websites that we use.

See you soon!
