Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to our year 6 page. We work very hard to be happy, healthy and active. We are preparing for SUCCESSFUL FUTURES!


Autumn Term - World War 2

We are visiting Gwili Railway on the 24th October, we will be travelling on a stream train to re-enact the journey of an evacuee. 



In November, we will be watch 'Awful Auntie' by David Walliams, in the Grand Theatre. This is helping us to experience authors.



We are LOVING year 6 and we are very excited to watch the 'Awful Auntie'. We learnt so much these past 3 weeks, you could say we are fast learners!!! Last week, we researched so much about the Earth, Moon and the Sun. The Earth takes a year to orbit the Sun and it takes a month for the Moon to orbit the Earth. Mrs Minney, Miss Thomas and Mrs Lewis got very dizzy while demonstrating this!!! With Mr Ellis, we enlarged a part of a picture taken in WW2 for are art topic. -Harrison Shepherd


In Maths, we have been learning about mode, (the number that appears the most) mean (add the numbers and divide by how many there are) and median NOT medium (the number that is in the middle). During English lessons, we are learning about writing an information text based on our interests, e.g. WW2, Marvel, Fashion etc -Logan Lewis 


In Topic, we have been working on our information writing skills. Right now we are writing one on Annelies Frank, we have written information about her diary. We can't wait for the Gwili railway trip next week and watching Aladdin in Dylan Thomas. Our first half term in year 6 has been fun packed and manic with ideas and activities!!!!! Can't wait for more!

-Harrison Shepherd


What a term!!!!!! We have learnt sooooo much about WW2. Its been very exciting. Our Gwili railway trip was really fun and it was great to find out how the evacuees felt, leaving their families. Mrs Minney asked all the parents to write a WW2 letter to say goodbye, and I think one of us started crying!! The letters were parents to their children leaving home. It was heart braking. Our Clwyd Pop Up shop is sadly closed but it was very successful. It was a great experience working in the shop and serving customers. We took it in turns and loved every single part.

Its Christmas time and we can't wait for our party, on Thursday. We have planned the food, games and music. Merry Christmas from Harrison Shepherd




Happy 2019, Yaaaay!!! We are learning about bodies of water, and how water get's to our house.

This term we are going to look at how water travels around our world, answering questions like

  • How deep are the oceans?
  • What is water made out of? 
  • what is the biggest ocean?

​​​​​​​We are also planning many different visits to learn from our experiences. In April, we are going to Rhossili Activity Centre, we cant wait!!!!! Hope we'll see some water there!



What do you know about the worlds bodies of water?


We are looking at water and the way it can be used to power our homes and the usage of water in different countries. 



Our new topic is COOL stuff, like Bob Ross, photography and much more! In English we have started doing suspense writing, "WWWOOO!!!" and highlighting key features that makes suspense. With Maths we are measuring angles and probability, WHAT ARE THE ODDS?????? We're also going to the Purple Badger for our year 6 leavers party on the 11th July, we are so excited, its going to be a BLAST!!!

Last Friday was a blast! We went to Swansea University to talk about the importance of us going to university and how it's soooooooo much fun! Before, I didn't know anything about Swansea university but not only did I learn about it I also learnt about how exciting it is and the students were friendly.  The entire class learnt about it including the teachers. In Topic, we are learning about discussion texts, should mobile phones be banned? and should children have pets? We have been looking at both sides of the question. The River Tawe boat trip was a splash! we sailed from the Marina to the Liberty Stadium and back. We learnt about the history of the river and the cooper industry. It was very interesting. We came back with loads of new facts about water! Did you know that the River Tawe would have been as busy as the M4!!!!!

We've been really busy revising and sitting our national tests. We have enjoyed preparing for London.We have also enjoyed practicing our songs for the leavers assembly. In English, we have been writing new policies for our comprehensive schools, this was great! We have really enjoyed learning about the best version of our selves in Science, now we need to follow the advice. In Art, we have been building different types of bridges with balsa wood with Mr Ellis and in our Art books, we have been drawing Banksy graffiti art.
