Year 6 English Oracy Assessment!   (Year 6 only!)

Year 6 – Oracy Assessment

In our English lessons this half term we are going to be focussing on ‘Biographies’ & ‘Autobiographies’.

This will be an Oracy assessment project through the development of individual ‘Presentations’ to be delivered to the rest of the class during the last week of this half term! (Week Beginning 18th February 2019).

As you know an autobiography is all about yourself therefor your presentation will be all about you and your life!

As homework, I would like you to create a powerpoint for your Autobiography presentation.

Consider the following :

  • What key events will be included?

  • Chronology.

  • Your Powerpoint should include only photographs and titles or key words.

  • Your presentation needs to be at least 4 mins long.

  • You need to practice your presentation! This will help you to deliver it confidently without having to read it from a card!

Take a look at the Success Criteria (displayed below) that you will be assessed against for this task!

Good Luck!

Welcome Back to Spring Term 2019!!


I hope that you have all had a fantastic Christmas and that Santa brought you everything that you had hoped for!

The Spring Term has finally arrived and as I have already mentioned to pupils, this is our (Year 6 pupils especially) busiest term of the year!!


During this term pupils will be studying the topics: ‘Blitz’ and ‘Mods and Rockers’. Within these topics we will be learning all about World War 2 and we will be comparing this period of history with the 1960s. Pupils will investigate what daily life was like in these two contrasting periods and will also be investigating prominent events and sources of evidence from these periods.


In English, pupils will be developing their presentation skills and narrative writing. This will focus on pupils developing a range of narrative techniques and exploring the plot, characters and structures of their stories. Pupils will also be preparing and presenting an 'Autobiography' to the class as part of their ongoing Oracy assessments.


In Science, we will be exploring Forces. This will involve pupils investigating what forces are and what affects them etc. Pupils will also learn all about the measurement of a force and how to use equipment safely and effectively!

Year 5/6 will also be investigating Judaism and prominent Jewish Festivals during this term.

Welcome to Dosbarth Mrs Martin!

Croeso i Ddosbarth Mrs Martin!


I hope that you have all had a fabulous Summer break and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this new academic year!


September is always a very exciting time and we need to make sure that we are all well prepared for the start of term. So here are a few helpful pieces of information for you!


P.E will be on Fridays - Please ensure that P.E kits are in school every Friday. P.E kits will be brought home at the end of every Friday due to a lack of storage space for them.

A reading book needs to be brought to school every day!

You also need to make sure that you have a black biro, pencil, ruler (30cm) and a glue stick for class work!


During this term the class will be studying the topic ‘Potions’. Within this topic we will be learning all about the ‘Changes of State’ that can take place within materials. The children will investigate creating mixtures (predicting and observing what happens when materials are mixed with others) and also will explore processes that can be used in order to separate mixtures (discussing whether a change is reversible or irreversible).


In English, pupils will be developing their understanding and writing of Non chronological reports and Biography/Recount writing. Pupils will focus on writing Non Chronological reports about a hobby of choice and about a ‘Modern Mixture’ (Topic Link). Biography/Historical Portrait writing will involve pupils writing a brief biography for a famous person of choice and also for a famous scientist. Recount writing will be linked with our topic.


In Science, we will be exploring the properties of materials, reversible and irreversible changes. Within this topic, pupils will have the opportunity to conduct practical investigations in order to discover which materials change and how they change.


Dosbarth Mrs Martin will also be reflecting on Christian beliefs and how these affect people’s everyday lives. Pupils will also be exploring the structure of the Church in Wales.
