HAPPY ST.DAVID'S DAY
It certainly is the start of a very special week this week as we will be celebrating St.David's Day and World Book Day. To begin the week I thought it would be lovely to share all your fantastic work with everyone with our book of new chocolates you designed for Charlie and the Chocolate factory written by welsh author Roald Dahl.
Which chocolate will you choose?
Welsh Folk Dancing is a fantastic way to keep fit!

Get creative today and make something to do with Wales - maybe a daffodil, leek, welsh lady, castle, dragon or welsh cakes!
Use any materials that you may have at home and please remember we would love to see your creations on Wednesday during our Google Meet calls.
Here are some ideas that you may like to choose from:
Singing is a very important part of the culture of Wales. Sing along with this catchy song to help you practice the days of the week.

We all know how important it is to keep fit and healthy, so for the next month here is a challenge for us all to do.
I am going to start early and do it today, I wonder how many of us will do the whole month?

Good morning Class 6.
There have been a lot of different covers for the 'Charlie and The Chocolate Factory' book over the years. Take a look at some of the ones I have found below.
Today design your own front cover for the book. In your design think about the background colour, the title - maybe you will use bubble writing or capital letters, and the pictures you will use on the front. You could always use your drawing of Willy Wonka that Quentin Blake showed you how to do on Monday.
We would love to see your front cover designs either on Google Classroom or on twitter @BryncethinPS6.

In class we have really enjoyed working on the question:
"Would you rather read the book or watch the film?'
We have written and recorded our own opinions and views with advantages and disadvantages for reading books and watching films. We asked Class 9 their views, collected data and compared the results with some very surprising results!
As we near the end of our BookFlix topic, the class remain enthusiastic and keen to read which is terrific to see. Please remember to check your Google Classroom message which I have sent to you all to say which books to read on the Oxford Owl Website.
Many thanks for your continued support.
😊 Well done Class 6 on all of your hard work this half term, I am very proud of you all. 😊
We have had a busy half term with our topic ‘BookFlix’ and have done some fantastic work especially linked to our story ‘Molly and the Lighthouse’. We have written our own stories, made our own lighthouses light up and found out about lighthouses in Wales.
I am thrilled to see you all working so hard each week to beat your Beat That scores too.
Have a lovely half term, please remember to keep reading using our Oxford Owl class page and look at our Google Classroom page for a spelling activity for the half term holiday.
Enjoy the half term break and see you back in school on Monday 2nd November.
Welcome to Class 6
Even though it has been a very unusual start to the new academic year, the children have all settled really well into Key Stage 2, our new classroom and our daily routines. We are creating our own ‘class bubble’ and our daily routine involves regular hand washing and sanitising, which the children are taking great responsibility for.
Our topic focus at the moment is on wellbeing, ensuring all pupils are happy, settled and ready for learning and continuing to make progress.
I shall be regularly updating this class page and our twitter account @BryncethinPS6.
If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to phone the school office on 01656 815840, leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.
Many thanks for your continued support,
