Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

 

A huge welcome to the class of 2019! We are looking forward to a fabulous year: exploring the globe from the frozen North to the steamy jungles of Mexico; from the Ancient Mayans to the most up to date techniques in forensic  science and crime fighting.  Fitting in Rhos Y Gwaliau, performances  and those little things called SATs along the way.
