Welcome to Class 18

Miss Hughes

We are a creative and hardworking class who like to make learning fun.

Miss Hughes is our class teacher, she encourages us to try our best and listens to our ideas. We will be doing lots of exciting things this year and we are ready to take on the challenge of Year 6!

All of the Year 5 and 6 classes work closely together to ensure your child receives the best possible learning experiences. We follow a two year cycle of planning with a wonderful, exciting range of topics and activities.

Below is a brief outline of our topic for this term. We would love it if you could talk to your child about their topic and find out more about what they've been learning.

Our topic this term is about diversity. We decided to call our topic 'You're your own work of art... Dare to be different'. Alongside other areas of the curriculum, we will be developing our literacy, numeracy and digital skills throughout the topic.

Curriculum for Wales 2022

As we are starting to prepare for the new curriculum in 2022, Pupil Voice is extremely important in Class 18.  Children will be given the opportunity to suggest ways to learn and what they would like to learn throughout the curriculum. This term some lessons will be taught for longer periods of time, not just for an hour a week.
