Our Big Question:
How have human beings changed the world?
This term, our Blwyddyn 6 learners will be developing an understanding of the concept of ‘change’. They will develop a firm understanding of what is meant by change, and will plan effectively using their pupil voice alongside the class teacher. The learners have chosen to use their recent trip to Cardiff as inspiration to look at current changes in Wales, as well as engaging in a project that will develop their Science and Technology skills. This term’s activities will continue to embed and develop the skills that the learners have developed this year and will prepare them well for their transition into their respective high schools. Our well-being day will take place on a Wednesday. Learners should ensure that the correct uniform is worn on well-being day.
Dydd Gwyl Dewi – Saint David’s Day 2021
We celebrated Saint David’s Day virtually this year for the very first time! We all wore the colours of the Welsh flag and took part in a Big Wales Virtual Quiz! Some of us also baked Daffodil Biscuits, made Welsh Cakes and tried a Snowdonia Milkshake. We had a great day!
