FRUIT / Ffrwyth

Every morning, the children may buy a healthy snack for 20p or £1 for the week. The Year 6 children wash and sell the fruit and count our earnings. We use any profit to buy some special extras for the children in their lessons.



We are trying to reduce the number of bottles we throw away so are

encouraging the children to bring a water bottle to school or buy a Greenway one for £1.50, available from the school office. They may fill it at the fresh water fountain. They can keep this in class and re hydrate throughout the day.

Spring Term - Tymor Y Gwanwyn 


This term our context is called 'Our Heritage'


We live in a country that is full of history and tradition but what do we know about these? Over the next 10 weeks we will be learning all about Welsh history and how in the Victorian times Wales became one of the most important places in the world!


We will find out about some of the sad times and become reporters in the  aftermath of the Aberfan disasters. 


Using our pupil voice, we will find out lots about out little country with a huge history.

How much coal?

We looked at sources from the late 19th century and saw just how much coal was exported from Cardiff. We used this data to create a range of charts to help us answer questions.

Aberfan Disaster


We have learnt about the tragedy of Aberfan! After learning all the facts, reading and listening to eyewitnesses we created our own newspaper reports.

Safer Internet Day

We have made information PowerPoints alerting other pupils to the risks they may face online.

Autumn Term - Tymor yr Hydref


To Infinity and Beyond - I Anfeidredd a Thu Hwnt!


We have talked about the context and the class have made some fantastic ideas of what they would like to learn about. We are going to start travelling through space learning about the planets in our Solar System before crash landing back on Earth to learn about the many things which are affecting our planet and what we can do to help the future of our planet. 

Distance Between Planets


As part of our pupil voice we wanted to find out the distance between the planets. We were able to find out the distance between the planets. We were then able to convert the measurements to smaller units to see  for ourselves.

CPR Training


We were able to take part in a workshop to learn a very important life skill. We were able to take part in CPR training so if somebody was to have a heart attack we know how to save them.

Netball Training


As part of transition to high school we have taken part in netball sessions with Eastern High.

Year 6 Skate Club are building their skills ahead of a trip to the Knap and Llandaff Fields later in the year. Learning to skate involves a wide range of skills including balance, coordination, improvisation, mutual support and resilience.
