Croeso i Dosbarth Llandudno

Blwyddyn 6

Our Classroom Team: Miss. Byrne, Mrs. Garner and Mrs. O’Brien

Medi/September 2023- Gorffennaf/July 2024

Autumn Term Topic:

We will be starting our Autumn term by looking at our new class name: Llandudno. We will be researching the features and history of the area, as well as comparing Swansea to this seaside town. We will be using maps to locate Llandudno, as well as local census data to analyse and compare Swansea and Llandudno. 

For the remainder of the Autumn term our topic will be: Trailblazers! We will be delving deep into the history of the Victorians to understand how their ingenuity has shaped the UK as well as the rest of the world! We will be looking into Children’s Rights with the help of our school mascot Chloe and compare these to the rights of children in the Victorian era. We will also be looking at the inventions and creations developed in Victorian era and comparing them to modern technology. 


Transition with Cefn Hengoed will begin promptly, Mr. Rodr from Cefn Hengoed will be joining us fortnightly starting on Tuesday 25th of September until the end of term to teach us French. We will also be joined by Mrs. Parsons fortnightly, who will work Y6 to discuss transitioning to secondary school. 


Each week pupils in Year 6 will have homework assigned, one piece of spelling homework, one piece of mathematics and numeracy (usually assigned on Mathletics) and one piece of literacy. Homework will be set/sent home on a Friday and pupils will have till the following week to complete it. Alongside these, learners will have a ‘menu of homework’, this will be sent home at the start of each term. Learners can decide when they return these, but all must be completed and returned before the next school holiday.  

For those who do not have access to a laptop or computer to complete the Mathletics tasks, additional time at lunchtimes (Monday – Thursday, 12:00 – 12:30pm) can be provided to support this. 

Spelling and times tables tests will be completed one Fridays.

Important information:

Our class P.E lessons will be on Friday afternoons with Mr. Jones, school P.E kits can be purchased from Bergoni and pupils are to come into school on Friday’s wearing their P.E kit.  

We are excited for the return of Miss. Phillips who will be joining us on a Friday to teach the Ukuleles.

Croeso i Dosbarth Red Kites

Blwyddyn 5/6


Miss Bond & Mrs Garner welcome you to our #RedKites page

Medi/September 2021 – Gorffenaf/July 2022

The Y6 Leadership Team and Red Kites have started a new campaign called; ‘Manners Matter.’ Watch their film to find out more.

Summer 1

‘Design Dragons’

We are going to be VERY busy this term.  We are going to design and make our own Eco-Friendly Vehicles.

To inspire us, we visited the ‘Oriel Science’ workshop in Swansea.

We did the ‘Shape of Speed’ workshop:

How do engineers design cars to be
aerodynamically efficient? In this workshop pupils
study how the shape of vehicles influence their
speed by constructing their own model car.
It is based on Oriel Science’s ‘SURE car’, which is
an open-wheeler competitive racing car designed
by Swansea University students. In the workshop,
students will study forces and their applications.

Spring 2


The Red Kites have chosen to study the Growth of Swansea – to look at the architecture growth and changes as well as population changes.

As a part of our learning, we planned our own trip into Swansea to look at the amazing new architecture.

We travelled by train from Llansamlet Station!

We walked over the ‘Taco Bridge’, visited the new Swansea Arena and played in its Eco Park and even went up 28 floors in a lift in the Meridian Tower to have squash in the Sky Bar – we could see all across Swansea!

We are also growing potatoes in our locker room!!


We have harvested (picked) our potatoes!!

We had lots of fun washing them, preparing them (peeling, chopping, wrapping in foil, mashing) and finally EATING them!!

Our Real-Life Easter Chicks!

Leo and his Mum brought ‘Biscuit’ a silkie hen into meet Red Kites.

They have also leant us an incubator and some of their silkie eggs to try to see if we can watch them hatch!!

Leo’s mum brought in a special torch to ‘candle’ the eggs to check which are fertile. 4 eggs are fertile

Watch Thanos hatch!!


Spring 1

Fair Aware

This term Red Kites and all of TPS learners will be thinking about being: ‘Fair Aware’.

We will find out all about Fair Trade.

We will talk about food and farming all around the world.

We will be exploring the problems facing farmers because of climate change.

Take time as a family to talk about what you already know about farming and fair trade. Then talk about what you’d like to find out about fair trade, farming and climate and share any ideas you may have for activities, books, visits etc.

You can either print the sheet below and write on it or share ideas in an email to me.

Croeso i Dosbarth Fluorite ~ Blwyddyn 4

Please share the following social story with your children to help explain the school closure and reassure them



Check-In, Catch Up, Prepare

Week beginning: 29th June 2020

#TeamFluorite, I have been in to move the furniture and set up your resources at your desks.  I used my tape measure to check we are all at least 2m apart.  The class is still bright and friendly…it’s just missing YOU!



When we are back in school week beginning 29th June, I will be teaching you how to have fun with a new digital tool called FLIPGRID.  It will allow you to create short videos to share with me and the class.

If you would like to have a try yourself at home before we come to school next week – I have created a ‘Hello#TeamFluorite’ where you can record videos to say hello.  You can add drawings and stickers to your videos – it’s LOTS of fun!   AmyLou has been helping me learn how to use Flipgrid, so you’ll see messages from her!  I will share the Flipgrid code for this practice grid on Class Dojo.  

Getting Started: Students

Students do NOT need to create Educator accounts
Students just need a Flip Code from their teacher to join Flipgrid and start recording videos. No accounts needed.

Joining a Grid (Flipgrid HELP video)

Step 1: Enter the Flip Code

You can go to on a computer. We recommend using Google Chrome for the best experience.


On mobile devices, download the free Flipgrid app for iOS and Android devices.

Your Flip Code is provided by your teacher to join the Grid. Enter the Flip Code exactly how your teacher provided. If you don’t know your Flip Code, please contact your teacher for assistance.

Step 2: Sign in to the Grid

You will join using your School HWB Email address.  If you can’t remember you hwb email address ask Miss Bond.

Recording a Video 

Once in a Grid, students click the green plus to record in three easy steps:

  1. Tap to record – Tap the record button on the bottom to start. Add fun stickers, filters, text, and more. Tap the arrow on the bottom right to advance.
  2. Review your video – Trim, rearrange, or add more. Tap the arrow in the bottom right to advance.

Fun Friday June 5th

j2message is an instant messaging tool, on HWB which we would like to use with our learners in Trallwn.  Please see a short introduction from HWB below:

“j2message enables teachers and learners to message each other in real time. A notification is sent when a new message is available. Teachers may select either school, class, or individual users, to send a message. Pupils may message a teacher, and a teacher can choose to share that message with a class, if they wish. Messages can be deleted but will always be available for all teachers via the audit log button on the j2dashboard.”

We are aware that your children are missing their friends, therefore we will aim to engage with our classes informally on a ‘Fun Friday’.  There is a feature on j2message to allow all children to see each other’s messages in the class, so they will be able to engage with each other each week.  After their slot the chat will be ‘locked’ until the next ‘Fun Friday’ so the teachers are always monitoring the chat.  Please see the table below for your child’s class slot.

We aim to introduce this on Friday 5th June so the children can chat with their friends and their teacher.

‘Fun Friday’

Competition winners will receive a number of goodies including a trophy, framed copy of their work and goody bag. Selected entries will also feature in an online exhibition.

Alien Seeds: We had a strange parcel arrive from Planet Eight asking Fluorite Class to help them cultivate their seeds – they even sent us all the equipment we needed!

We visited Plantasia in Parc Tawe to take part in the ‘Easy Peasy Seed Germination workshop’- What does a seed need to germinate?  We thought we’d ask an expert!
