Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

 

A huge welcome to the class of 2021!  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.

Homework

We will give Maths and Literacy homework every Friday for return on Wednesday.

  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. 

Here  is a guide you could use

 

Thank you to all those who made the Meet & Greet today. Here are the slides I showed:
