Home PageWe will be trustworthy, honest, polite and speak respectfully. We will treat everybody equally and let everyone feel they belong to our school family. We will act, play and move around the school safely showing care and consideration to one another keeping hands, feet and hurtful words to ourselves. We will care for each other, materials, equipment, property and our environment. We will follow directions given by staff first time. We will tell a member of staff if we are worried, upset, hurt or bullied. We will wear the correct uniform.
Firstly, Mr Green and Mr Stevens would like to give a warm welcome to everybody in Year 6 this academic year. Our first topic this year is 'A Child's War'. We are currently reading the Michael Morpurgo novel Friend or Foe and our Literacy for the term is based on this.
If you have any interesting books or artifacts we would love to see them and share them as a year group to further our understanding of the war.
We would also welcome parents input for trip ideas relating to this topic. We look forward to seeing you at the Parents Information Evening which is Thursday 21st September at 4:00pm.
For further information on the areas covered this half term please see our topic overview below.
We have also attached the Year 6 timetable for information on PE days.
If you have any further questions please come and see us.
Attendance - Don't forget our weekly target for class attendance which is 97%. Make sure you arrive to school on time (8:50am) and make every effort to attend school to avoid absences affecting progress of learning.
Homework- each week, pupils will be given Mathematics and Literacy homework. Children will also have 10 spelling words to learn and are expected to read at home and record this in their diaries.
}Home Reading- your child will be provided with a reading book along with a reading diary. Children have also been issued with Bug Club usernames for them to access these books online. We also ask that you leave a comment in your child’s diary that refers to how your child has read their book.
}Uniform- school uniform is compulsory. All pupils need to be wearing the white shirt / blouse, grey school trousers or skirt and a school jumper / cardigan and a tie for Year 6. Suitable black shoes must also be worn. We kindly ask that you label your child's clothing to avoid it getting taken home by another pupil by mistake. Lost property will be gathered each day and kept in a box in the Hall.
PE days – Outdoor Games will take place every Wednesday with indoor PE sessions on a Friday. We suggest that it is best for the children to bring their PE kit in on a Monday and take it home on a Friday to ensure it is always in school.
P.E kits are: White t-shirt preferably with Glyncoed logo, navy shorts or navy jogging bottoms for outdoor lessons, black PE pumps for indoor sessions and trainers for outdoor games
Rudry Mountain Literacy Project
The Mystery of Rudry Mountain
The Literacy Project group went in search of clues on Rudry Mountain to see if they could figure out the mystery. Is the mountain made of hot rock or perhaps it has magic powers. The truth lies somewhere in between . . .
