Year 6 have had a fabulous start to their final year in St Mary’s.
6D and 6BE have worked really hard on their Tudor Topic, learning about the impact of Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and the causes and consequences of The Spanish Armada. Working in small groups, we selected an aspect of Tudor life that we wanted to explore and worked together to collect, sort and present information to the class for us to learn from each other.
In Healthy Living Week we focused on our feelings of wellbeing. We developed our knowledge and understanding of how to stay safe online. We debated aspects of bullying in different contexts and explored facts and strategies surrounding cyberbullying.

Extra PE lessons with Newport Live gave us the opportunity to try intense team sports including basketball and handball, resulting in improved fitness and high energy levels for the rest of the day.
Without a doubt the highlight of our term so far has been our week’s stay in Llangrannog Residential Centre, where we had the time of our lives. Five action packed days filled with new experiences including skiing, horse riding, go carting, tobogganing, shelter building and not forgetting the muddy adventure course. This allowed us to develop confidence, bond, team build, and learn so much about ourselves. Diolch yn fawr
