News update: check our gallery for photos of our World War Two Exhibition!!
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!
I hope you all had a super Christmas and are ready for the New Year ahead.
Just a note to mention that links to Stackpole imovies can be found on 6CS page, so if you haven't seen them yet, please take a look, they're brilliant!
This half term we will be going back in time to experience a taste of life during the Blitz!
We are looking forward to discovering the main causes of the start of the War, who was involved and how it ended.
We are also going to have our heart strings tugged as we learn about the devastating effects the War had on families and communities.
In mid Jan we will be visiting 1940's Swansea Bay for a trip down memory lane, where we will find out more about air raid shelters, rationing and evacuees. We are hoping to pick up some tips for our 'make do and mend' DT and Art project.
Linking to our theme we will be looking at using the narrative voice in English and learning how to use 'flashback' in our WWII stories. Our class novel is 'Hannah goes to War' - a moving tale, highlighting the experiences of a group of children living in Swansea during the outbreak of the Second World War.
In Maths we will be looking at data and statistics linked to WWII, whilst continuing to improve our maths skills across the curriculum.
So, it looks like it will be another busy term, especially as we will be holding our Eisteddfod before February half term! Watch this space for Curriculum updates and don't forget to look in the gallery at our photos!
