We are a mixed-ability class of Year 6 learners. We are focussing on being independent and resilient and preparing for the transition to high school. Our mornings are focussed on developing our literacy and numeracy skills while during the afternoons we enjoy further developing our skills through our topic work. PE takes place on a Friday, and Wednesday afternoons are known as ‘Pnawn Cwtsh’ where we take part in health and well-being activities.

Tymor yr Hydref / Autumn Term 2023

‘Magical Muggles!’

This term our topic is entitled ‘Magical Muggles!’ which is based on the Harry Potter books and films, and has a Humanities and Languages, Literacy & Communication focus. The topic begins with learners each receiving a letter explaining that they have been accepted into the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry – Muggle Division. They are sorted into Hogwarts Houses and visit Ollivander’s to make their very own wand! Throughout the topic learners develop their story writing skills and learn how to use coordinates in all four quadrants, as well as research the history of magic and investigate reversible and irreversible changes. At the end of the topic learners will attend their very own Hogwarts Graduation ceremony where they will celebrate their achievements in front of their parents.
