Pen Y Fro

Primary School

Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 class page. Here you will find useful information and reminders related to our general routines and activities, aswell as links to helpful websites and online resources. 


This is also a space where we will share and celebrate some of the interesting and exciting activities we will be carrying out in school. 

Spring Term Class Information

We are excited to begin our upcoming exploration topic, "Our Frozen World," aligning with the six areas of learning in the Welsh curriculum (Literacy, Languages and Communication, Mathematics and Numeracy, Science and Technology, Humanities, Expressive Arts and Health and Well-Being.) Through this journey will delve into the world of Indigenous tribes and Arctic animals. We aim to provide a holistic learning experience, which includes ideas and suggestions from the children on what they would like to focus on or learn more about.


For your information, PE lessons will take place on Thursday and Friday; please ensure that children bring an appropriate kit for PE days in a small bag.  


Homework will continue to be issued on a Friday, via Teams, to be handed in the following Wednesday. As part of their homework children will be expected to write spelling sentences or a spelling story each week. The children will all be given a paper copy of their spelling words; the words can also be located in the files section of Teams. Spelling tests will continue to take place on Friday. Each week for homework there will be an additional task alternating between a maths task and a topic related task. We will also continue to use MyMaths for some of the maths homework activities. Each week a reminder of the homework activities will be posted on the chat function of Teams. 

This is an extremely busy term for the Year 6 class, with lots of exciting events, activities and trips to look forward to. There are a number of sporting events taking place, consent forms will be e-mailed for these. We have been invited to Gowerton Comprehensive to watch a performance of their production ‘The Addams Family’ on Monday 5th February. The year 6 class will be going swimming after half term each Friday morning for 5 weeks. We will also be carrying out our cycling proficiency course during the week of 18th March. We also have the Eisteddfod, UNICEF Day and World Book Day to look forward to!


We have organised a Year 6 residential for the beginning of the Summer Term (1st to 3rd May). We will shortly be sending out information about the cost and will hold a parent meeting during the second half of this term to provide more information.
