Year 6

Homework for the week beginning 5th October 2020. Reading and tables practice everyday and your spellings for this week are below

                       Year 6 - 2020

Welcome to Year 6! Croeso ! Bienvenue!

It is so lovely to be back in school and to welcome you the new Year 6 class.  School may be slightly different at the moment but the heart and ethos of Year 6 is unchanged; to be happy and confident in school; to have a desire to learn and improve and above all to have an understanding about and to have impact upon the world we live in.  

 

With a new curriculum in Wales learning is changing, evolving and exciting with a focus on real life learning.  Throughout the year we will explore a variety of contexts starting with forensic science and the police force. Our use of 'Voice It, Write It' will allow us to be creative without worrying about being wrong as it is impossible to be wrong, it is about developing ideas and opinions and  justifying our thoughts. Technology will be a key factor and used throughout all subject areas from Green Screen to programming to beginning to understand how a web page is developed.  Expressive arts will allow us to explore music, art, dance and so much more.  At the heart of it all will be wellbeing and growth mindset; to be happy, prepared to try something new and a desire to do well and build upon skills we already have' so come on Year 6...

 

let's get going and enjoy every day!

 

 

LEARN A LANGUAGE

This link may help with the new languages you will be learning at High School.

Grid 29th June - 13th July 2020 - if you are back in school we can go through the grid in class, if not and are home learning choose a range of activities, you don't have to do them all. Some will take ten minutes some a little longer.

Residential letter - update

Just in from Cathays High School

 

I put this on earlier in the week but you might not have seen it. Have you seen the twitter clip, the link is below. Lots of changes as you understand. There is a one way system so you come in the main door and up the staircase by year 2, then when we go out we use the stairs our side and the Reception/Year 1 door. There are spots and arrows everywhere to help you keep your distance. When you leave school you will have to go out the Whitchurch Road entrance, no one is allowed out of the Cwmdare Street gate, that is only to come in. The playground will be in sections with a bubble per section and all times will be slightly different. I know it is strange but I think once we are there you will see how it works. We only have 9 tables in class so that there is space between you and you will have a bag of your own personal resources. So no bags from home or pencil cases. Just your coat and lunchbox. Don't forget there are no dinners. We will eat in our class. The bubbles are very small, I have tried to put you together as friends but I haven't heard back from everyone so I have done my best. At the end of the day you are all friends and you all get on really well as a class so it won't be a problem. I am really looking forward to seeing people and we can talk about any worries you have and work them out. I know it's new and it's different but we will be fine, we will look out for each other and work things out together, that's what makes us at Gladstone and Year 6 in particular special! See some of you tomorrow and others on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Helo bawb!

Then last grid for Summer 1.  It does refer to some reading that is in the classroom area.  I know now that most of you can get in there. 

Just choose some things off the grid that interest you. You may be in the middle of reading a book at home so don't fancy the reading activities.

Most important thing is to keep healthy, what have you been doing to keep healthy?  Let me know you can put photos and clips into Seesaw.

Randomiser Questions for practice

Welcome to Year 6, 2019!

Croeso i Dosbarth Chwech, 2019!

 


 

Year 6 is such an important year for the children of Gladstone, as it is their last year in primary school before moving on to  their chosen High Schools. We are aiming to prepare the children to become independent learners and develop their confidence, in the wide range of abilities that they have.  We want them to take this confidence with them into the new challenges and exciting opportunities that High School offers.

 

Reading is a key skill as the children get older they use it across the curriculum. We ask that Year 6 still read daily at home and this makes up part of their homework.  It is essential that the children understand what they are reading, so asking questions after they have read is a priority; we focus in particular on inference style questions, referring to the text in our answers and skimming and scanning for information and answers.

 

Tables and 'Learn Its' also need daily practice and the children are tested on a weekly basis to check progress.


PE will take place every Wednesday and Friday.  All children will need to bring in suitable clothing and appropriate footwear for indoor and outdoor PE. A separate P.E. kit is required, this includes footwear for health and hygiene reasons.
All jewellery must be removed for PE lessons. 

 



Any questions, please feel free to ask.

I'm very much looking forward to working with the children this year!
Miss Watson
