Welcome to Blwyddyn 6's class page. This is your one stop place for all your Blwyddyn 6 information. This page is a place to celebrate and show off all that we do in our final year.
What a great day we had celebrating St David's Day. We have a new Bard crowned and we had some really wonderful Welsh skits and singing. Da iawn again to our new Bard and listen to their reading of the poem.
We are exploring our nationality and the uniqueness of our origins. We read Dean Atta's "I Come From..." poem which inspired these videos:
We celebrated Chinese New Year in Blwyddyn 6 by having a go at Tangrams. We created our own using Google Classroom. We also taught ourselves a brief conversation in Chinese too. Check some of the videos out on the link below.
Our eco topic has involved discovering why we are suffering with flooding across Wales. We see this particularly clearly when the River Ely's water level rises. We have been designing a model school to show off how we can make great steps in reducing flooding and providing alternative energy sources.
Learning to use saws and glue guns to build our schools has been a great way to show how we can help the planet.
We were visited by Dwr Cymru's Amanda on 11.1.2022. We were looking at how efficient we are with water and this lead to an activity where we had to be careful not to overfill our tank. A really great hands on experience that has made us think about our usage of water.
Blwyddyn 6 have been experimenting with water colours. We have been looking at tertiary colours and creating the different shades that we could see in our beautiful Welsh landscapes.
Blwyddyn 6 started a topic about evacuees. We researched and looked at the period of time and even interview Miss Lippard's Grandfather about his experiences. We created some great videos using Adobe Sparks roleplaying as the children from Cardiff who were evacuated from the city. Watch some of our videos below:
We are exploring different forces in Blwyddyn 6. We have been particularly focused on the force of air resistance. We have testing out what kind of drag we cause when running with coats open, closed and with a bag. The parachute spinners show us how drag can slow down the descent by creating more drag.
We have writing using persuasive language about technology towards the end of the first half term. We are aware of the positive and negatives that technology brings with it.
Using this knowledge, the children made their own wellbeing and mental health apps and services. The children had to pitch just like in Dragon's Den ensuring that they used persuasive language to get win!
Here are some of the apps the children created on Google Slides using hyperlink buttons. Click on the slide show button to use it like an app.
Technology is all around us. In Blwyddyn 6, we have been considering the impact that this has on all of us. We have written persuasive essays detailing what we think and our position. Here are a couple of examples of what we have done:
