Year 6: Topic launch

We’ve had a great launch day today exploring our new topic ‘Ein Byd’ (our world). The day started with the class spotting a couple of gift-wrapped items in the classroom and guessing what was inside. Wrapped inside was our new book ‘Mother Earth is weeping’ which explores multiple topics about saving our world. The other item was a globe, to symbolise how earth is a gift and we should treat it as such. 
After this, we brainstormed ideas ready for the challenges each week and looked into what questions we would like answering during our topic. 
After lunch, year 6 were met with a bit of a surprise when they discovered their new classroom had been covered with rubbish. We spent the afternoon exploring different materials and researching the ways that we can safely and responsibly recycle them. 
It has been a lovely launch day and I was very impressed with the wonderful ideas that were shared.

Reminder: P.E starts this Friday, so usual P.E kits can be worn to school on Friday. 

See you all tomorrow!
