Year 6

Leavers Performance 2018


This year we will performing 'The School of Rock' at Glenwood Church on the final day of term, Friday 20th July. We would love you to join us on this big occasion and celebrate another fantastic year. There will be an array of talents on show in Year 6's final performance of their Glyncoed career. We have then arranged for the children to visit Hollywood Bowl for an afternoon of activities including bowling and dinner after the performance.


The script for the performance is below and it would be really helpful if you could help your child learn their lines.


Thanks in advance,


Mr Green and Mr Stevens :)

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!

Reading Workshop with Mark Dorey

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.



General Information


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 Friday with indoor PE sessions on a Thursday. 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

The Mystery of Rudry Mountain

Still image for this video
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 . . .
