Dear Parents & Carers
It has been great to welcome to the children back to Bryn Hafod Primary School today for their final year in primary School. We have had a great start to the year in Year 6 today. The children have been fantastic! I have included a few details below that might hep you out over the next few weeks as the children settle in.
Our topic this term is going to be Sustainability. We will be conducting a Science and Technology project based around sustainable resources. We will carry out a project called City of the Future alongside our cluster of schools on the east side of Cardiff which we are really looking forward to getting underway.
Year 6 Coch – Mr Guinee TA – Mrs Marijan Long
Year 6 Glas – Mr Evans TA – Mr Brown / Annemarie
PE days for both classes this term will be on a Monday. Children can wear PE kit into school on this day to save changing etc. Please make sure that children wear suitable footwear for PE e.g. trainers not sandals or slides.
We will conduct a weekly spelling test on a Friday morning. Spellings will be handed out each Monday in preparation for that week. We will also be working on them during the week. Please help your child to learn the spellings each week.
Applications for High School
Over the next few weeks, we will be informing you that applications for High School are open. It is important that you complete the online applications before the deadlines given to ensure your child gets a place in your preferred school. They usually have to be completed by mid-November. Over the past few years Eastern High and St Iltyds have been oversubscribed so getting your application in on time will ensure that your child has the best possible chance. I cannot stress this enough as parents over the past few years have been left disappointed. If you wish to receive support with completing your child’s application, please contact the school in plenty of time to allow us to put a plan in place.
If you wish for your child to walk home from school by themselves, please write a letter to your child’s class teacher providing written consent for your child to do so. Children without a letter will not be allowed to leave the school premises.
I would formally like to welcome Jayden to our Y6 Coch class, he started today, and we look forward to him being part of our Y6 family going forward.
We look forward to your continued support this year,
Mr Guinee & Mr Evans
