Croeso i Blwyddyn 6!
Welcome to Year 6!
Shwmae! In Year 6 at Lakeside Primary we will be covering numerous, engaging topics. We are excited to be teaching your children this year and hope that all of our pupils have a happy and successful Year 6!
**UPDATE** IONAWR 2021/JANUARY 2021: Home-Learning
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda pawb! Gobeithiwn eich bod i gyd yn aros yn ddiogel ac yn iach.
Happy New Year everyone! We hope you are all staying safe and well.
Unfortunately, we cannot all be together in school at the moment, so for now your daily learning activities will be on your various Google Classrooms. There, you will find the Weekly Planner and all the details that you need to complete the tasks. We will also be uploading a daily video to the Year 6 20-21 Classroom to help with this.
Please remember that we will be here to help you and we look forward to speaking to you soon!
Love from the Year 6 Team

Homework will be set each week. Homework will help to consolidate skills taught in school and may also provide information if a home task is required for a topic. In Year 6, we encourage the children to be as independent as possible when organising and prioritising their time; we do this with the aim of preparing them for High School and we are grateful for your ongoing parental support with this.
Parents might like to consider subscribing to a weekly publication called First News. It is an excellent newspaper that has many interesting articles about current world events, written in a child-friendly way.

In Wales, the Welsh language is a core subject alongside English, Maths and Science. The children have many opportunities to practise their Welsh language skills throughout the school day, both inside and outside of the classroom. In addition to this, we have a daily Helper Heddiw session which focusses on different language patterns. The children also have lessons dedicated to their reading and writing skills.
Dysgu Cymraeg/Learning Welsh
If parents would like to join their children in practising Welsh at home, please see below for some links which we hope will be helpful:
Say Something in Welsh
Due to Covid-19, this year Criw Cymraeg will be comprised solely of children from Year 6. Members of Criw Cymraeg have a very important role in helping to promote the use of the Welsh language throughout the school. Pupils will be selected early in the Spring Term. In February 2020, we were proud to have been awarded the Cymraeg Campus Welsh Bronze Award; this year our aim is to start working towards the Silver Award and Criw Cymraeg will play a pivotal role in this.
Alongside studying non-fiction genres, we continue to use 'Alan Peat' sentences in Year 6, so if your child enjoys creative writing at home, please could you encourage your children to include them in their work. These top tips for sentence writing will really help you improve your writing skills. Click here, or find the link at the bottom of the page.
