Contexts for Learning
Icon: What Welsh Icons inspire you? A context where we explore inspirational people from Wales.
Darwin’s Delight: A very engaging context where the children learn about
Evolution and the Galapagos Islands
Revolution: A context where we find out learn about how Welsh Children
lived in Victorian times.
Tomorrow’s World: A highly engaging context where children consider how
technology is helping our lives, where we get to design web pages and learn
how to code.
Gallery Rebels: Time to get creative, an art and design based context.
We set literacy and maths homework when we think children need some
extra practise. We use Google Classroom to set a wide variety of project
based tasks based on current contexts for learning.
PE and ICT
Every Tuesday Year 6 take part in ICT, RE or P.E lessons. Please make sure a
labelled P.E. kit (including suitable footwear) is kept in school and only taken
home for washing during the holidays. Children in Year 6 may bring a roll-on
deodorant if they need to keep fresh.
School PE kits can be purchased from the main reception.
The children always have a Reading and Reasoning Test in May which cannot
be completed at any other time. The High Schools want these results to help
group the children and understand their needs from September. The children
also have to complete an online personalised assessment through Hwb. The
tests are scheduled twice a year in school and parents will be able to access
feedback through your child’s hwb account.
We go on a Residential trip to the Urdd Centre at Llangrannog in West Wales in June most years where the children enjoy a range of outdoor activities including high ropes course, horse riding, muddy assault course and they have a go at improving their conversational welsh.
