Year 6

Croeso i Flwyddyn 6!
Welcome to Year 6!


                  Well what a busy Summer Term we have got ahead of us! 

Transition
The Summer term is a busy term for transition. During the next 14 weeks you will have the chance to visit your new high school, as well as meet with some of the teachers and pupils. You will also have the chance to choose a buddy for your new class next year. Think carefully about this - who do you work well with? Who has always been a good friend? We can help you make this choice if you need some advice. 

Trips
This term, we will have the chance to attend one educational trip, which will be confirmed next week. We will also be attending not one, but TWO pleasure trips: Harry Potter and a day out at Westmidlands Safari Park, to celebrate your time at Glyncoed Primary School.

We look forward to giving you details of our upcoming trips soon.
