Creative Homework 13/12/19
This week's creative task is to design a packed lunch for a WW2 evacuee. Here is a link for you to research the type of food that people would have eaten in the 1940s due to rationing.
How you present your work is up to you. You could design a menu/write a description/draw a picture to illustrate the contents or simply make yourself a VE Day packed lunch to eat on Tuesday!
We look forward to seeing what delicious treats you come up with-anyone for a carrot on a stick?

Llangrannog Trip Mon 27th-Weds 29th April 2020
Many thanks to those of you who attended the Llangrannog meeting last Thursday.
Geraint Scott from Urdd came to chat about the exciting activities available at Llangrannog and handed out forms/information for parents-these are attached below. Please complete these and return to your child's class teacher.
The children have brought home letters outlining how to pay for the trip. If your child is attending the trip, please would you pay the deposit as soon as possible so we have an idea of numbers. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. It is a fantastic opportunity for the children, and something they remember for a very long time. Diolch!

Creative Homework 18/10/19
As part of our World War 2 topic we have been looking at the lives of children who were evacuated to the country. By the end of half term we would like the children to create a poster aimed at persuading parents to allow their children to be evacuated. Think about the persuasive language that you could use and what images might convince parents that evacuation is a good idea.
We look forward to seeing your work!

*Why should we care about reducing our use of single use plastic?
*How will you encourage people to do so?
We look forward to seeing/listening to your ideas.

Croeso i Blwyddyn 6
Hello and welcome to the year 6 class pages.
Here, we will keep you updated with homework, trips and overviews of the children's learning in year 6.
Year 6 pupils will be given homework on a Friday each week. We vary the type of homework on a 3 weekly rotation:
We run a homework club in 6KT/VF on a Monday lunchtime to ensure all children have an opportunity to complete the tasks.
We will be completing a daily mile so please ensure pupils have sensible shoes that they can run in for this activity. Please also ensure that your child has a refillable drinks bottle in school too.
PE lessons for our class this year will be on a Tuesday and children are required to bring in their PE kit for this lesson. They may bring it in and leave it on their peg for the half term if this is easier.
Swimming for our class is in week 6 and 7 this term.
The children will swim daily 13:45-14:15 during W/B Monday 7th October and daily 1300-1330 during W/B 14th October.
'The Home Front'
This term, we will be looking at the home front during WW2. We will begin by looking at the main events and people of the war and then focus on how the home front managed and supported the military during this time.
The children will hot-seat Sir Winston Churchill and visit his War Rooms in London.
At the end of term, the children will host a VE party. You are invited to come and celebrate with rationing party food, dancing and more. Date TBC.
Request for 'Make Do and Mend':
The pupils will make bunting for the VE day party so if anyone has any bits of material or outgrown unwanted clothes we could cut up that would be fantastic.
The pupils will also be making a model of a 1940s style Llanishen village so if you have any boxes they could use please send them into school.
