Gwydion 17th May

Welcome to the Year 5 and 6 blog! This week it has been written by Rowan and Grace.


On Monday we learnt about the features and purposes of an information leaflet.


On Tuesday we presented our ‘river’ presentations to the class, it was very nerve-racking.


On Wednesday we did column addition in maths, it was a piece of cake!


On Thursday we worked in pairs to research rivers around the world. We also tested our parachutes which we made in Science. We took turns to drop the parachutes and record the speed in which they fell to the ground! Mrs John came in to peek at what we were doing, she was very impressed!

Friday: On Friday we had loads of fun making a model out of mod-rock... I think we had a little too much fun! There was just as much mod-rock over us.

Thanks for reading!

This week in Mathematics we looked at symmetry.

Symmetry is when something is reflected so it is the same on another side. There are 3 types of lines of symmetry: horizontal, vertical and diagonal. One shape can have more than 1 line of symmetry.

This week we have started to present our homework projects. Everyone has put in such a great effort and there have been some amazing facts learnt too! We have learnt that H2O stands for 2-parts of hydrogen and 1-part oxygen. Also that an adult’s body is made up of 60% water.

On Thursday we had a ‘Mantle’. We have to share the story of Rosie Swale-Pope. We have decided to create a play!

Rosie Swale-Pope is an explorer. She was the first Welsh woman to sail around the world in 1973. She went across the most dangerous parts of the ocean and was the first person to ever sail around Cape Horn in a catamaran. On her adventure she was thrown overboard 900 miles off the coast of the Caribbean and was lucky to survive.

We are looking forward to learning more about her and creating the play!

Thanks for reading! From Yr 3 and 4!
