On Thursday 16th May, Year 6 hosted an Art Exhibition. Using skills they have developed over the past few weeks, each child created their own work of art. They wrote letters to their parents, inviting them to a viewing and informing them that the artwork was for sale, as we were raising money for the VC Gallery.
Our very own Gallery ‘Oriel’ was created amid much excitement and pride.
In order to provide refreshments, our new Cafe was open for business. Children were trained in table service and worked hard all afternoon, serving customers, making drinks and clearing tables.
The afternoon was truly magical.
Many thanks to all attended... we raised a terrific amount of money, every penny of which went to the incredible VC Gallery. In total we raised an astonishing £330 !
On Wednesday 21st of November twenty-eight lucky Year 6s went to the Bridge Innovation Centre in Pembroke Dock for a day of scientific fun! What a fantastic time we had! The Big Bang certainly lived up to its name...from exploding tubs to banging balloons.
We used universal indicator to discover whether things were acid or alkaline; we saw bubbles filled with ‘dry ice’ and felt how cold they were; we entered the world of Outer Space, by crawling into a planetarium; we harnessed solar power to run the cars we made; and finally we were active participants in a terric show all about bubbles and balloons!
Everyone learned something! It was an amazing day.
On Monday 12th November Year 6 headed off to Withybush to take part in Crucial Crew.
We learned lots of interesting ways to look after ourselves. There were nine activities: we did CPR with paramedics; road safety; food hygiene; cyber safety with the Police; bus safety; fire safety with the Fire Service; how to stay safe of our beaches with the RNLI; how to stay safe around electricity; and we learned about Childline and how it can help us.
The afternoon was really good fun - the food hygiene talk made us laugh, and crawling through a (disco) smoke filled tent was fun!
Year 6 are off to a flying start! They’ve settled in brilliantly following a range of mindful and team building activities and tasks.
Stories have been written, maths challenges completed and we’re all looking forward to building upon existing knowledge.
Target cards are now complete and show individual next steps; we hope everyone will spend time practicing multiplication tables.
We’ve already had sessions at the Leisure Centre, with swimming, yoga, multi sports, circuit training and spinning being enjoyed.
Outdoor learning has got off to a flying start too, with children tying themselves up in knots-quite literally!
With Year 6 comes responsibility: we heard some super speeches as the children gave their best to be voted onto the School Council, Criw Cymraeg, or to become an Eco-warrior! Results will be announced shortly!
Applications are also being invited for Head Boy and Head Girl! Good luck to those who have given their best to gain a position.
Our topic this term is Frozen Kingdom and we are chomping at the bit to be immersed in our learning.
A fabulous start to the year!

To start the new theme 'Gallery Rebels' Year 6 visited the local 'VC Art Gallery' in town. Take a look at the photos to see some of our favourite pieces of Art. We also played a game with a dice to create our own 'Picasso-style' face! Thank you so much to Barry and the other artists at the brilliant VC Gallery.
We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle.
We'll stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Darwin develop his theory of evolution.
Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail!
Year 6 had a brilliant visit today (07.10.16) from Mr Clayton. He has been to the Arctic loads of times and taught us how to survive in the Arctic wilderness. We learned about wind chill, frostbite and bothies (special tents that explorers use!). Mr Clayton brought in some of his special equipment and showed us his goggles, his portable shelters and some of his tools. Year 6 think Mr Clayton is better than Bear Grylls! Thank you Mr Clayton.
I found Inuit art very interesting because most artists paint/draw what they see, but Inuit art was different. It was very imaginative and paranormal, it reminded me a bit of illusions because the colours really stood out. Inuit was all about elongating feathers, wings e.t.c symmetry and using colours that really stood out. I hope we do something like this again! AH Year 6
