Year 6

Welcome to Year 6  - Croeso i Blwyddyn Chwech

 

What an exciting start we have to our brand new term, where we are literally launching ourselves into our whole school 'Blast Off' topic. 

 

We have a term packed full of  learning from explosive science lessons, to interviews with an astronaut to solving real life space problems using our creative thinking and mathematical skills. We will develop our team building skills and promote a healthy body and mind through discussions, workshops and game situations. 

 

We will be studying books by Steve Hawkins and other famous authors in order to gain invaluable knowledge and understanding of the universe as well as appreciating both fictional and non-fictional texts. This is just a selection of the inspiring and fascinating topics we will be covering this term.

 

P.E Will take place on a Monday and Games on a Thursday and we ask that children wear their P.E kits into school on those days.

 

Reading books can be changed on a Monday and Thursday and homework will given out on a Thursday, with it being due back in on the following Tuesday.

 

We look forward to an exciting and productive term in Year 6. Please email class teachers with any queries and we will get back to you as soon as we possibly can.

Where will I find any work that has been set for my child?

All work will be posted online using Google Classroom.

 

How does my child log on to Google Classroom?

Follow this link to the Google Classroom login page - classroom.google.com 

Children use their school email address to log in (e.g. - JoeBloggs@llanyrafonprimary.co.uk)

My child has completed all of the work that they've been set. What now?

  • Teachers will be updating Google Classroom at appropriate intervals with new tasks should the need arise. Please visit Google Classroom regularly to keep up to date.
