Welcome to the year 6 page. Here you will find updates of all the wonderful things the pupils will be getting up to in lessons as well as important information regarding future trips and much more.
Roman Walk and Talk
As part of their Roman topic, year 6 have been doing a Walk and Talk session developing ideas ready for their Gladiator Diary assessment on Friday.
Inspired by their trip to Dar-ul-Isra Morque, year 6 wanted to try out some Arabic Calligraphy. In their sketch books they started out by practising letters in the alphabet before trying to recreate animals and shapes using a selection of Arabic letters.
Year 6 were warmly welcomed by the lovely Sisters and Brothers of the Dar-ul-Isra Mosque. They had kindly volunteered to take year 6 through a number of stations discussing different aspects of Islam. The pupils got the opportunity to draw some beautiful Arabic calligraphy, learn about the 5 pillars, discuss the prophets and their links to other religions and most importantly, how to be a good person and kind to others. The Sisters and Brothers were enthusiastic with the pupils and so knowledgeable that they even taught the staff a thing or too. What a wonderful trip!
Croeso Nol! - Welcome back!
We hope you all had a lovely half term. Autumn 2 is here and year 6 are into their new topic - Gods and Gladiators. Today they have been researching Romans and will be taking part in a Walk and Talk activity later this afternoon.
Dark Tales From The Woods
Year 6 have started their new topic on the book by the Welsh author Daniel Morden called 'Dark Tales From The Woods'. They have read 'The Squirrel and the Fox' and 'The Leaves that Hung but Never Grew.'
It's one of our favourite times of year in year 6 - creating Lego Movies. The pupils have had time to practice their stop frame animation skills by using iMotion and will now be putting them to the test to create their Lego Movies. Patience and creativity is the name of the game. The slower the movements the better the animation. We all cannot wait to watch them on Friday.
Year 6's Welsh phrase of the week is: 'Sut wyt ti'n teimlo? Which means: 'How are you feeling?' They are practising answering the question with: 'Dwi'n teimlo yn...' (I'm feeling...). They can then anwer with: hapus, drist, wedi blino etc.
Year 6 are writing the 'resolution' and 'ending' parts of their Sci Fi stories today. They have worked so hard and improved so much throughout this writing task. We cannot wait to read the finished stories and Mrs Miles cannot wait to display them.
