Croeso i Ddosbath Alarch!
Welcome to Class Swan!
We are one of the year 6 classes and our teacher is Mrs Kilgour. We are all happy to be back in school, learning and playing with our friends. This term we are celebrating Black History Month, researching famous Welsh icons and creating non chronological reports about them.
We are all very excited to be going on our leavers residential next year and in preparation we have decided to start our own Year 6 business to raise funds. We have worked as a year group to think of a name for our business, decide on the products we can make and sell. We have also designed our own brand and logo. Keep an eye out for our pop up fayres through the year!
Year 6 are continuing to use 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.
PE lessons will be every Thursday and taught by Mrs O'Neill. Please make sure that on Thursdays:
