Year 6 / Blwyddyn 6 2020 - 2021
Spring Term 2021
Welcome back to school Year 6. Croeso yn ol i ysgol Ddosbarth 6.
This is our Year 6 class page. Here you will find useful information about Year Six, including our current topics and recent news. Our teaching assistant in year six is Mrs Reynolds. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s development, please do not hesitate to email me and I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.
In Year 6, your child will continue to learn the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Compulsory national curriculum subjects at primary school include English, Maths, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, PE, Swimming, ICT and Welsh.
Ysgol Derwen is moving towards implementing the new curriculum, which becomes statutory in 2022. The curriculum will become more child led with children taking more responsibility for their own learning.
Autumn Term topic in Year Six:
Mae hen wlad fy Nhadau (Geography)
Spring Term topic in Year 6:
Yr Ail Rhyfel Byd/The Second World War
This terms homework is now available as a file to download from the class page and is also available on Google Classroom. Pupils should aim to submit one piece of homework per week online using Google Classrooms. Online feedback will be provided and we will also use the projector screens in class to celebrate other pupils homework achievements and share what has been completed when we are in class.
In Year 6 our P.E. days are Monday and Friday. The pupils are allowed to come to school wearing sports kit on these days instead of school uniform. As P.E. will now be outdoors for all sessions do not worry about sending the pupils in the usual school P.E. kit, instead ensure they are dressed appropriately for the weather. As the weather at this time of year is so unpredictable, if the weather is good on a Monday we will do both our PE sessions on a Monday morning.
From Monday 21st September the Year 6 school work will be uploaded daily to Google Classroom. This will be available for those pupils who are working from home to access in the event of them having to isolate or await test results. If your child is off school because they are unwell then please do not feel that they need to do their school work on these days.
The work will be set to upload at 9am each day. Please bear in mind that when the pupils are in school a big part of the learning we do is through paired work, group activities, discussion and feedback. Much of this type of lesson activity is not suitable for home schooling, however we will do our best to make any worksheets, textbook work or PowerPoint presentations available online for pupils to access as well as giving suggestions for other things you could do at home instead.
