Welcome to Year 6!
A huge welcome to the class of 2022! Welcome back to normality, whole class lessons and seeing all of your classmates. We still need to be Covid-aware and follow certain hygiene rules and procedures; myself and Mrs Presant (AKA The Dream Team!) 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.
Our Topic Web for this year looks like this:

Rhos y Gwaliau Outdoor Education Centre
Cookham Dean has a valued and long-standing relationship with the Rhos y Gwaliau Outdoor Education Centre: it is situated in stunning open countryside on the eastern side of the Snowdonia National Park. They have easy access to scenic mountains, tranquil lakes, awe-inspiring coastlines and breath-taking rivers and pride themselves on their outstanding ability to deliver a wide range of high quality outdoor education programmes with a variety of activities to suit all ages and abilities, including those of our Year 6 children.
Their inspirational, highly qualified team are passionate about the benefits of outdoor education for young people and adults; the skills, knowledge and memories that can be gained on one of their residential courses will stay with your child for life.
Groups at Rhos y Gwaliau have sole use of the accommodation and facilities. Combined with their small and dedicated staff team this means we get maximum flexibility in their programme and instruction delivered by staff who can really get to know the Year 6 pupils they work with.
Here you will find all the information needed for the residential trip for our Year 6 pupils in May.

The people who discovered them and the current occupants as well as ice based adventures.
Please find below a useful list of resources for Year 6 including spelling lists and websites.
We will give Maths and Literacy homework every Thursday for return on Tuesday.
It is vital your child reads nightly and reads aloud at least three times a week. ( Even Free Readers.) They must be able to discuss the text and more importantly their opinion of the text and author.
