During this term, much of the work carried out by Year 6 pupils will be used to inform End of Key Stage Teacher Assessments. This is therefore a very important term for the children, as information gathered will be passed onto their chosen high schools.
Police Liaison Officer Mark Jones will be visiting our Year 6 pupils during the term to raise their awareness of Drug and Substance Misuse. This will be followed up with work in class, as it is a very important issue. The children will also be focusing on the topic of ‘Growing Up’ in their Personal and Social Education lessons during the second half of the term and therefore may wish to further discuss issues raised in school with you at home.
In English lessons this term, we will be starting our work based on the author Anne Fine. Throughout this aspect of the work, pupils are introduced to the theme of stereotyping and are given opportunities to consider how stereotyping is prevalent in our modern world and perhaps how attitudes have changed over time. The focus is on gender stereotyping but other areas are also considered.
In our Geography topic, we will be examining the National Parks in Wales. Pupils will ask and answer lots of geographical questions, so to develop their knowledge and understanding of this aspect of Wales, whilst also developing and refining geographical skills, such as using atlases and maps and a variety of research strategies. We will also visit Snowdonia National Park later in the year, making the trip to the top of the summit ourselves via Snowdon's train.
Photographs of Recent Events
Check out these photographs from our recent trip to Dangerpoint, our transition afternoon at Elfed High School and our brilliant World War II day, delivered by Company K. Two teams from Year 6 also represented the school in a football tournament at Buckley's Globe Stadium. Da iawn pawb!
Our Year 6 children need their outdoor P.E. kit in school every day. PE lessons are planned for a Tuesday and Thursday, but due to the hectic nature of the term for Year 6 pupils, this may be unavoidably changed to a different day. The children will take part in Gymnastics and Cross Country sessions during this term.
Check out some video clips from our recent activities.... Here you'll find us using our best ARP voices to tell everybody to ''Put that light out!'' as they would have done in the war. We are also performing our Carnival music and Samba dance moves for a recent transition afternoon at Elfed High School.
