This week Year 6 have found out we are doing the fiver challenge! The fiver challenge is you have to submit your business idea to the Fiver Challenge Bank and if you get accepted then they will give you £5. If you are lucky enough to be accepted you buy materials to make a store and buy the things you need to make the products. But first you do some market research to see what people will like! We have been put into groups of 4-5 . The Fairy Friends are doing ... well..... fairies!!! (Also Georgia helped out today) Bye!

We have done all of our tests and now let's all relax; they are done! Everyone has been trying their best. Today, we had our reasoning test and everyone was focused especially on the last question. Let's hope nobody got too excited! Hopefully, as usual, Mrs.Williams has a surprise planned for us after all the hard work.
Hello everyone. We are Abi and Theo and we are Y6 bloggers this term. This term we are learning about the 1960's. So far we've been doing research on Martin Luther King and we made a fun comic strip about his lifetime. Some other people wanted to make a leaflet/poster. We also looked into Rosa Parks; a black woman who refused to give up her seat on a bus for a white person. The 1960's was full of excitement! We have also been practising some of our songs for the Abertawe festival next Tuesday. We are singing "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley and "Song for the children" written by the school council. If you are free come and watch us! :)
As you are probably aware, around now is a VERY sporty time of the year! Theres sports day, tournaments and lots more! On Tuesday the 20th of June sports day will be taking place in the morning (weather depending) It will have to take place in the morning to make sure nursery can take part. Y6 will be manning activities such as obstacle course, potato and spoon race, bouncy castle, tug of war and even football and rugby challenges. It will be better that it takes place in the morning as it won't be too warm then. Amazingly, there will even be RACES FOR THE PARENTS!!! Sausage and chips will be for sale, £2 for chips and an extra 50p for sausages! There will be a SWEET stall selling all kinds of confectionary to satisfy your sweet tooth. So thats to look forward too. Also Y6 took part Gregg Rees Shield tournament against 6 other local schools. Girls took part in netball and Boys divided themselves between football or rugby. Unfortunately, football lost all of their match but one. However, on the bright side netball won 1 and rugby won ALL of their matches besides one.
This week, y5 and y6 were invited to The Grand Theatre in Swansea to perform in Primary partners where our School of Rock! Some of our y6 pupils and y5 pupils parents attended the performance. Supricingly, our school was the ONLY school to play our own instruments and include a dance. The other schools included Tre Uchaf, Penllegear and lots of other local schools.
Year 6 are going to comprehensive school in September so, as a reward as a last trip together we are organising and deciding a fun trip to play and have great memories in thIs school;something fun to end our time in primary. We could go to somewhere like LC2,later zone, PlayKing,tenpin bowling and other fun places if we decide on a different one. It's going to be FUN!!! Do you have any ideas of where we could go?!
This week, we did a science investigation involving woodlice! The woodlice we collected were around 10 - 20 and we had 4 chambers, one with dark and damp (soil,cottonwool etc.) one with dark and dry, one with light and damp and another with light and dry and the opposite of that. Our experiment was to over all see which habitat woodlice would prefer to live in and then professionally recorded our results on a technical line graph.
