Hello and welcome to Class Hawk’s page! We are a year 6 class and our teacher is Mrs Deren.
We are nearing the end of our Y6 journey in Trelai. This half term we will be working with our teacher and future high schools, getting ready for our new adventure. It will be sad to say goodbye to primary school but we are ready! We can’t wait to get involved with the virtual transition projects and we look forward to learning more about our new schools.
As well as our transition work, we have decided that our next project will be The Lost Words! We were inspired by this book by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.
We look forward to taking our learning outdoors, exploring different animals, plants, habitats, food chain and much, much more.
Mrs Deren has asked us for our thoughts, questions and ideas and we can’t wait to get stuck in.
Keaep checking back to see what fun things we have been doing!
We loved Project: Ely, we learned so much!
After reading SeaBEAN, our class book, we decided to take our teacher on a tour of Caerau. We showed her all the places we knew and talked about the things we liked and the things we wanted to change. We even made a map! But, our visit left us with so many questions and we wanted to find out more!
Mrs Deren helped us to send an email to lots of people, places and services who support our community... we had a great response! So many people wanted to help us.
We met with:
- Cllr Bradbury
- Father Jesse from St David’s Church
- Eleri and Charlie from the North Ely Youth Centre
- Matt from the Western Leisure Centre
- Sam and Matt from South Wales Fire Service
- Olly from The Caer Heritidige Project
- Dave from the Cardiff Rivers Group
- Sian and Ana from the Hub
- Gareth West
We created websites and a video to showcase the things we learned, and to promote all the great things that happen in our community.
PE lessons will be every Thursday and taught by Mrs Deren or Mrs O’Neill. Please make sure that on a Thursday:
Year 6 are going to be taking part in the Accelerated Reading scheme, they will be giving 20 minute independent reading time every day. AR is a computer program that helps to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer - passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.
MyOn is a great website that has books that are in the AR book bands. The site links to AR and so will only show books that are at an appropriate level for your child. Please encourage children to log in at home and read as much as possible.
Homework is not compulsory but activities will be uploaded to Seesaw or Google Classroom on a Friday. If you do not have access to ICT, I can print a paper copy for you.
