Croeso i Blwyddyn 6

We are Year 6 and are split into two classes, Class 11 and Class 12.  In Class 11 our teacher is Miss Bosomworth and our HLTA is Miss Curtis.  In Class 12 our teacher is Miss Thomas. 

We are an ambitious, enthusiastic year group who thoroughly enjoy participating in learning.  We enjoy learning new things, respect each other and work well in a safe and happy environment.

This term our topic is Stargazers where the children will take a journey through Space, the final frontier.........Navigate beyond the sun: the Magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system.  We will investigate the eight planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.  We will take a look at the moon:  a celestial body that orbits Earth.  Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure humankind has ever undertaken.  Are we alone or are there other life forms out there?  

We will listen to the children's ideas about what they would like to learn about within the topic and incorporate these ideas into our teaching and learning.  Please discuss ideas with your children and let us know.  We would love to hear your fantastic suggestions.  

If your child would like to carry out some additional, independent work based around this topic we would thoroughly enjoy celebrating it in class.

Here are some helpful, child-friendly websites to support the topic:


This term in maths we will continue looking at the four written methods of number, and study fractions, decimals and percentages, along with shape work, including area, perimeter and volume.  We will continue to consolidate our previous maths knowledge and understanding and work to solve a range of reasoning activities.   Your child can use their Times Tables Rockstar log in and Active Learn log in to support their learning in Maths.



Homework

In Year 5/6 the expectation is that all children practise their spellings and times tables for a weekly test.  Reading should be carried out as frequently as possible.  Any additional homework is always welcome and will be celebrate in class.

PE

Our PE day is a Tuesday, but we would like your child to have their PE kit in school all week, should any changes arise.

Welsh

We are currently looking at the topic of 'Hamdden' and 'Gwyliau'. To reinforce the language used in school, here is a useful website to use with your child.
