Year 4/5: Hedd Wyn

Welcome to Year 4/5 and to Hedd Wyn's class. This year, there are 27 pupils in the class.

Our theme this term is the Victorians and this work will be primarily covered by concentrating on Literacy, Numeracy and ICT.

Reading books will be changed weekly. The pupils will receive homework every Friday and we're asking kindly for the homework to be returned by the following Tuesday. They will also be receiving spelling words to practise each week.


Our PE lessons this year will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons - don't forget your kit!
