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!
Maths Homework 8/11/19
This week your homework challenge is to have a go at the Bubble Burst game on Active learn. You will need to match equivalent fractions. Can you match 2 faces to complete the bonus round? Pob lwc!
Creative Homework 18/10/19
Your task this week is to create a WW2 propaganda poster to persuade wartime parents to temporarily evacuate their children to the countryside for safety during the Blitz.
You will have until after half term to complete the task. Please remember that homework club (Monday lunchtime) is available should you need a little help/resources.
During WW2, the British government used propaganda to persuade people to help with the wartime effort on the home front. One way for people to help in WW2 was for parents to temporarily evacuate their children to a safer area such as the countryside.
The following website will give you a bit more detail and some examples of the posters used.
As you can see from the website, the posters were quite distinctive:
A catchy slogan that parents would remember
Sometimes emotional pictures
Simple photos/pictures of the reasons for evacuation
Try to use these features in your work.
We look forward to seeing your posters!
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!
Creative Homework 27/9/19
As part of our 'Go Green' day on Thursday 3/9/19, we will be raising money for the charity 'Size of Wales'. We will also be raising awareness of the importance of reducing the use of single-use plastic goods in our school.
For your homework this week, your challenge is to create something to promote the importance of this initiative. How you do that is up to you-poster/board or card game/picture/painting/speech.
*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 Wednesday afternoon 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 5 and 6 this term.
The children will swim daily from 13:00-13:30 from Monday 30th September to 11th 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.
