We have a busy half term ahead!

 

Geirio Gwych - Cymraeg

 

Y tymor hon, yn ein gwersi Cymraeg, byddwn yn ysgrifennu am thema gwahanol bob bythefnos. Bydd ein pythefnos Cymraeg cyntaf yn cael ei hysbrydoli gan Celf Rhiannon Roberts. Celf lliwgar, deiniadol gan artist enwog, cyfoes o Gymru. Byddwn yn ysgrifennu stori greadigol am un o'i lluniau. 

Yna byddwn yn ysgrifennu adroddiad papur newydd hanesyddol, am drychineb Aberfan. Byddwn hefyd yn ysgrifennu adroddiad Gwyddonol (Hetiau De Bono) am ysmygu ac yn ysgrifennu araith ar ddiwedd y tymor. 

 

This term, in our Welsh lessons, we will be writing about a different theme every fortnight. First we will look at Rhiannon Robert's art to inspire us to write a creative story. Then we will be writing a newspaper article about the Aberfan disaster. This will link in with our history lessons about the coal industry. We will also be writing a scientific report about smoking, using De Bono's thinking hats. At the end of the term we will write a speech. 

 

English

 

This term in English we are studying the book Matilda, by Roald Dahl. We will be completing many different tasks throughout the term and studying a variety of genres. Some of the genres we will be studying this term will be: soliloquy, diary, character portraits and fairytales. 

 

Mathemateg

Am yr ugain munud gyntaf o bob gwers Mathemateg bydd sesiwn CLIC yn cael ei gynnal. Yn ystod y sesiwn yma bydd y plant yn ymarfer sgiliau Mathemateg y pen. Mae pedwar rhan i’r sesiwn CLIC; Cyfrif, Dysgu Ffeithiau, Dim Byd Newydd a Cyfrifo. Mae’r tabl isod yn dangos y sgiliau byddwn yn canolbwyntio arnynt yn ystod pedwar rhan y sesiwn. Mae’r sesiwn CLIC yn gyflym; mae’r plant yn cwblhau cwestiynau ar byrddau gwyn bach yn aml.

 

The first 20 minutes of every Mathematics lesson is a CLIC session. These sessions help children to become numerate. It is vital that children know how numbers work. There are 4 parts to a CLIC session; Counting, Learn Its, It’s Nothing New and Calculation. The table below shows which skills we are concentrating on this term. Big Maths lessons are fast, fun and furious. Children work on whiteboards and show their answers to their teachers.    

 

                            

Cyfrif / Counting

Dosrannu rhifau 3 lle degol / Partitioning 3 digit numbers

Cymharu, trefnu, talgrynnu ac amcangyfrif gyda degolion / Comparing, ordering, rounding and estimating with different decimal places.

Cyfri ar llinellau rhif sydd wedi eu rhannu mewn i 10, 5, 2 neu 4 darn / Count on number lines that are split into 10, 5, 2 or 4 pieces.

Dysgu Ffeithiau / Learn Its

Ymarfer Ffeithiau Adio a Tablau / Practise Addition Facts and Times Tables

**Childern need to know all their times tables by Christmas in Year 6. Please practise at home with you child if they are not confident with their tables.**

Dim Byd Newydd / It's Nothing New

Rhifau Jig-so / Jigsaw Numbers

Lluosi a rhannu rhifau a degolion â 10, 100 a 1000 / Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 

Lluosi Llawen / Smile Multiplication 

Lluosi Darnau Arian / Coin Multiplication

Cyfrifo / Calculations

Amrywiaeth o gwestiynau adio, tynnu, lluosi a rhannu / A variety of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions.

 

 

Ar ôl ein gwersi CLIC byddwn yn cwblhau amrywiaeth o waith sy’n datblygu ein sgiliau rhifedd a rhesymu.

Byddwn yn cwblhau’r unedau canlynol y tymor  hwn;

  • Adio a tynnu / Addition and subtraction
  • Lluosi a rhannu / Multiplication and division
  • Ffracsiynau / Fractions
  • Hyd: Perimedr ac Arwynebedd / Measure: Perimeter and Area
  • Arian / Money
  • Amser / Time

Byddwn yn cwblhau llawer o gwestiynau geiriol sy’n defnyddio sgiliau rhesymu yn ystod pob uned. We will be completing lots of worded questions that requires the children to use their reasoning skills in every unit.

Gwyddoniaeth

 

Yn ein gwersi Gwyddoniaeth y tymor hon, rydym yn edrych ar sut mae cyffuriau yn effeithio ar ein corff a'n hiechyd. Byddwn yn edrych yn fanwl ar sut mae'r cyffur tybaco yn effeithio ar y corff. Yn ystod ein sesiynau Gwyddoniaeth bydd DrugAid yn dod i siarad gyda'r plant am gyffuriau. Bydd cyfle gyda'r plant i ofyn cwestiynau i arbennigwyr yn ystod y sesiwn. Yn ogystal, bydd y nyrs yn dod i siarad gyda'r plant am ysmygu. Yn yr un modd, bydd hyn yn gyfle gwych i'r plant ofyn cwestiynau i'r nyrs am y pwnc dan sylw. Byddwn yn ysgrifennu adroddiad gwyddonol am ysmygu gan ddefnyddio Hetiau De Bono i'n helpu.

 

In our Science lessons this term, we are looking at the effects different drug have on the body and our health. We will be looking carefully at how the drug Tobacco has an effect on the body. During our Science lessons, DrugAid will be coming to speak to the children about the dangers of drugs. The children will have a chance to ask the experts questions during the lesson. Also, the school nurse will be coming to school to discuss smoking with the children. Again, this will be an excellent opportunity for the children to ask questions about smoking and tobacco. We will also be writing a scientific report about smoking, using De Bono's thinking hats.

Hanes

 

Yn ein gwersi Hanes y tymor hwn, byddwn yn astudio’r Pyllau Glo. Byddwn yn cwblhau llawer o waith am y pyllau glo ar brynhawn Dydd Iau gyda Mrs Davies. Rydym wedi trefnu dau trip yn gysylltiedig gyda’n gwaith ar y pyllau glo; ymweliad â Big Pit, ac i wylio sioe Theatr Na Nog ‘Ysbryd y Pwll’. Ar ôl bod ar y ddau drip, byddwn yn cwblhau gwaith Geirio Gwych ar y pyllau glo a bywyd pobl y cyfnod.

 

Our History lessons this term will be about the Coal Mines and the lives of the people who lived in mining communities. We will complete lots of History work with Mrs Davies on a Thursday afternoon. We have organised two trips this term to further the children’s understanding and experience of working in coal mines and living in mining communities. We will be visiting Big Pit and watching a drama based on The 1890 Morfa Colliery disaster. After our visits to both places, we use the information we have learnt to write creatively in our Welsh lessons.
