Spring Term 2023
This term, our learning Chapter is called 'Rights' or 'Hawliau'. We're exploring the concepts of democracy and our rights and responsibilities. In Year 6, we're focusing on the question 'How did ordinary people win the right to vote?', by exploring the Chartist movement, the Suffragettes and apartheid in South Africa. As a school, we began the chapter with a focus on fairy tales and their links to rights.

Tymor y Gwanwyn 2022 Spring Term
This term, our whole school focus is on ‘Changes’. We began this chapter with a whole school week exploring the wordless picture book ‘Window’ by Jeannie Baker and creating a range of artwork, maps, collage and coding based on the text. We also took part in an oracy task ‘hot seating’ the main character in the story and asking and answering questions.
We studied two of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and created a range of written and creative work inspired by them. Our artwork was also inspired by the work of artist John Piper. In science, we have been exploring the world of plants and animals and enjoyed a lovely walk in Silia Wood.
Take a look at some of the wonderful work we have created.
