Latest News

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say that this is the section of the website where you can find all the latest information regarding Year 5 & 6 at Bryn Hafod Primary School.  We trust that you have had a fantastic Summer Break and are looking forward to the Autumn Term 2018/19.  Mr Guinee, Mr Horton and Mr McLeod are looking forward to teaching your children this year.  Our first Autumn Term Topic is the 'Slimy Stuarts'.



Hi all, we met in our pupil voice groups this afternoon.  Congratulations to all of those pupils that have been nominated by their peers to represent the school in the various groups.  To find out more information about the pupil voice groups please follow the link on our main page from > Children, >Class Pages.  



Hi all, please could you make sure that Book bags are returned to school on a Tuesday and a Friday.  We have a number of children across Year 5 and Year 6 that are not returning them on a regular basis. Please ensure that your child does so, diolch! We've had a great week this week studying poetry and multiplication in maths.  The children are making good progress and trying very hard.  Diolch blant!



We need you! Year 5/6 will be carrying out an art activity in school and we are looking for donations of glass jars to be brought into school.  Please ensure they are empty and washed thoroughly.  Please be careful when transporting them to school.  If you have any concerns you can hand them directly to your child's class teacher.  All donations would be greatly appreciated! 


Accessing Google Accounts from Home

Hi all some parents have been asking how to access their Google accounts from home.  The children will need their usernames (pupils should know these) followed by the Bryn Hafod Domain name e.g - the pupils then use their password that they use in school.


They can access the following software in this way: 

NB. (There is no www. in the adress bar! 


Google Docs - 

Google Sheets -

Google Mail -

Google Drive - 



Literacy and Numeracy 

As when your child was in Y4 or Year 5 last year, during Literacy and Numeracy sessions in school your child will be assigned a literacy and numeracy teacher that may be different to your child's usual class teacher.  This helps us to work with your child at his/her level to ensure that work is challenging and suited to their level of ability.


Year 5 and 6 PE Days 

PE will take place ebvery week and will be on the days listed below.  Please ensure that your child brings appropriate PE kit on these days.  Should your child not bring PE kit on this day they shall either take part in the session using PE kit provided by the school or alternatively they may be asked to complete a worksheet based on the children's experience.  This will ensure that all children participate in the lesson in some form.  We would prefer it if your child could bring in dark shorts/leggings and a plain white T-shirt for PE sessions in school.  As part of our health and wellbeing initiative in school it is important that your child brings kit to school that they will then change into specifically for PE lessons.  School uniform does not count towards appropriate PE kit.  Thank you for your support with this matter.
