Welcome to Year 6W - Croeso i Flwyddyn Chwech

Croeso! Welcome to 6W's webpage. Here you will find information about the wonderful comings and goings of our class. We will share our learning, important information and upcoming events here. Please make sure you call back for updates :) 

The Spring term in Year 6 is always very busy, with lots of work to be completed! Our main topic this term is; 'Crime and Mystery Investigators'. Within this topic we will be exploring the alternative fairytales and comparing life in London to our local area through the 'London Eye Mysteries' novel. In ICT pupils will be exploring how to use camera editing tools and Adobe Spark videos to create their own news articles and reports. We will also link this work to exploring more of our Welsh heritage and cultures through the Eisteddfod at the end of February. 

The topic map below, will gave further information of the skills we will be covering.
