Welcome to Year 6 SD!
Welcome to year 6!
Croeso i blwyddyn 6!
We have settled back into school really quickly and are ready to learn! This term our topic is Hola Mexico. We have brainstormed our ideas and collaborated with year 5 to identify some key questions we would like answered. Whilst planning what we would like to do, we have had to carefully consider the four core purposes because they should be at the core of everything that we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares us as confident, happy citizens.As well as our main topic Hola Mexico, we will also be studying a Welsh topic, Icon.
Our STEM week will run from Monday 15th October. Our STEM week will link to our topic and will involve looking at the performance of Formula 1 cars. This will also link with our science topic this term which is forces in motion.
The Digital World at Cefn Fforest Primary School
We are learning to be digitally competent at Cefn Fforest Primary School. We have a range of platforms and digital sources available to access both at school and at home to allow us to access safe internet sources to be both creative and academic. Every child has an individual login to each of the platforms below.
PE days - Monday and Wednesday
Every Wednesday we have yoga, a £1 donation towards the cost would be much appreciated.
Reading Books and Records - Reading books and reading records need to be changed every week please. It is important that every child reads and a comment is added so the teacher can record progress. Even if the book is not finished, a comment on how your pupil has read for the pages read would be much appreciated.
Homework - Pupils will be given homework every Friday which should be completed and returned for the following Wednesday unless stated otherwise.
ClassDojo and Seesaw - These are the two main platforms we will be using to communicate with parents and for children to share work produced in class. If a class code is needed to join, please do not hesitate to ask.
