Welcome back Year 6!
We hope you had a fantastic break and have recharged your batteries ready for a busy Spring term. We are excited to launch our new topic, 'Pits and Ponies' where we will be looking at the mining industry in Wales and the economic effect it had. We hope to organise a trip to Big Pitt for the children to get some first hand experience of the mines. Please see below our overview for the topic and some of the artefacts the children have made over the holidays. Well done!
We hope everybody in Year 6 has a fantastic half term and enjoy a well earned rest.
Thank you for all your hard work over the past 8 weeks.
If you are going out over Halloween and Bonfire night please be careful and look after yourselves.
Autumn Term 1 - A Child's War
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.
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
