Year 6

6A Mrs Hynam & 

6B Mrs Trailor


Meet the teachers!


Mrs Hynam

Hello, I’m Mrs Hynam!

I’m really looking forward to being a Year 6 teacher this year. I started at Tredegar Park Primary School 11 years ago as a student teacher in Mrs Morgan-Boyett’s class. I was lucky enough to stay here and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else! I really loved my time in primary school, I was really good at reading and spelling and believe it or not, I was a really fast runner and used to win all the school sports races!  After being inspired by my favourite teacher, Miss Gill, I knew I wanted to be a teacher but ended up taking a ‘gap year’ after college which ended up lasting for 10 years! I worked for a transport company, planning routes for lorry drivers - ask me any postcode! When I’m not at school, I suppose I’m quite boring - I like relaxing on the sofa with some snacks while watching TV. My favourite thing to do is eat out - I wish I could do it everyday!


Mrs Trailor

Hi, I’m Mrs Trailor!

In my spare time I enjoy going on adventures with my children, taking my dog for a walk, reading, watching films and crafting. My favourite book is any of the Harry Potter books and I have read them quite a few times! I also love watching the Harry Potter films while drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows. I have lots of Harry Potter things in my house but my favourite is my Lego Hedwig.

One of my favourite places to go is the beach because I enjoy hunting for creatures in the rock pools and paddling in the sea. My favourite subjects when I was at school were Music and Art, these are still some of my favourite subjects. If I wasn’t a teacher I would love to be a zoo keeper, particularly a zoo keeper looking after sloths or bats as they are my favourite animals!





What will we be learning throughout the year?   

Autumn Term 

Out of this World

Are you ready to blast off ‘Out of this World’ during our autumn topic? From the history and evolution of flight to planets, constellations and space travel, we will be reaching for the stars!

  • Just how big are the planets? We’ll use our Maths skills to talk about diameter, distance and temperatures.
  • What do the planets look like? In our Language, Literacy and Communication lessons, we will use lots of descriptive language as well as our IT skills, to create our own planet fact files.
  • This topic will be fantastic for our Humanities lessons…Which country won the space race? Who was the first person in space? We will be creating our own timelines for the history of space travel as well as looking into the properties of the planets.
  • We will be expressing ourselves by composing a Solar System Rap as well as creating artwork to represent the planets.

We are over the moon to have been given a fantastic opportunity to visit and work with Bristol Aerospace, where we will be looking at the materials used to make aeroplanes. We will also be investigating wings in nature and how they inspire aeroplane design. Will we be able to beat the world record for the paper plane that travels the furthest…the competition is on!

Spring Term

Cool Continents - America & Africa

How many states are in America...can you name them all? How many languages are spoken in Africa? We will be finding out the answers to these questions and so much more...

  • We’ll use our Maths skills to talk about time difference, comparing weather temperatures as well as the scale of countries compared to our little area of Wales!
  • In our Language, Literacy and Communication lessons, we will be using the novel 'Journey to Jo'Burg' to find out more about different healthcare systems. We will also be writing letters to describe our journey.
  • This topic will be fantastic for our Humanities lessons...Geography based lessons about the continents' features and landmarks. History based lessons about the continents' historical events and current affairs. 
  • We will be expressing ourselves by learning a fantastic Cheer Leading routine as well as learning a popular African song (taught to us by Mrs Tayler! - warm up the voice Mrs T!)


We are really looking forward to our visit to Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, where we will be able to see some of the 'Big 5' up close and take part in an 'African Adventure' workshop.

 If you are able to come in and share any knowledge of either continent, please let us know!



Now that you are in Year 6...

  • You will have the opportunity to become a member of ‘Heddlu Bach’.
  • We will be looking for volunteers to become a ‘Playtime Pal’!
  • There will be a chance for lots of fun learning activities at ‘Crucial Crew’!
  • We will also have a great time at Manor Adventure Residential! Make sure you don’t snore!
  • There will be lots of fun transition activities to prepare you for life in the High School.

How you can help at home...

Please encourage your children to use Mathletics and Oxford Reading Buddy at home - these are fantastic resources for children to practise their skills.


Hwb is another great resource that can be used at home - you will find a range of educational apps to support your children's learning, including Minecraft Education. You will also find lots of information about the new Curriculum for Wales.


You can also visit the 'Connect' page on this website to find exciting activities that you could do at home. I'm sure the staff will love knowing you're watching their videos!


Please remind your children about keeping safe online. Encourage them to think SMART when using online devices.

PE Information

Children will be taking part in weekly PE sessions to help them stay fit and healthy as well as developing their skills such as balance and coordination.

Our PE sessions are on a Monday. Children are able to wear their kit to school.

Please ensure that all jewellery is removed - thank you!


If you would like to chat with us, we kindly request that you contact the school office on 01633 817161 or via email at
