Year 6


Our class has been named after Llywelyn ein Llyw Olaf. Here is some information about him.

Llywelyn ap Gruffydd was the grandson of Llywelyn Fawr through his son Gruffydd. Llywelyn was the last of Gwynedd princes to attempt to unify Wales and he is referred to as Llywelyn ein Llyw Olaf. Between 1267 and 1277 Llywelyn ruled over three quarters of Wales’ population, but on the 11th of December 1282, he was killed in a battle at Cilmeri near Builth Wells by King Edward I’s soldiers, even though they didn’t know at the time that they had killed the Welsh Prince.

Year 6 Class Assembly

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Our Class Assembly will be held on Tuesday morning, July the 24th, at 9:30am. For this assembly, I would be grateful if you could look for old photographs of yourselves in your school uniform. These could be individual photographs, a photograph with brothers and sisters or a class photograph. Bring them into school (great care will be taken with them!) and they will be returned as soon as possible.

I would also be very grateful if you had clips of old class assemblies / Christmas show that I could use.

If you could bring them in as soon as possible I would be very grateful!!

Homework 29.3.18

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

Task 1 (by 16th of April)

I would like you to prepare a presentation (in WELSH!) on the topic ‘My 3 Favourite Places’.

You will be expected to talk for about three or four minutes on the topic. You may bring notes with you to the presentation but you must remember that this is not a reading assessment and therefore you will not be allowed to read the notes. I strongly suggest that you prepare some sort of presentation to support you (e.g. Ppt or Prezi – with a maximum of 5-10 words on each slide). You will need to practice at home before presenting in class!!

Click below to see an example of a presentation.
