Today Blwyddyn 6 were set a challenge to communicate by using the technique of morse code. The children weren’t given any advice on how to do this but had to problem solve with their team to light the bulb and communicate as they did during World War 2.
The children were introduced to Hwb Playlists yesterday as they researched the Roman invasion of Britain. Playlists allow the children to research their subject in a totally e-safe way as the teacher has gathered relevant resources and shared it in Hwb classes. It also ensures all information learnt is reliable.
The Winter Fete is due to take place on Thursday 30th November. In preparation for this the PTA are asking families to kindly donate items towards stalls, the raffle and for prizes.
In return Mrs Norman has kindly agreed that the children may have a non-uniform day on Wednesday 22nd November.
We are requesting items such as :-
• Tins, jars or bottles suitable for the 100 club stall
• Bottles of beer, wine or pop
• Items suitable as hook a duck prizes, such as small packets of sweets, stickers or glow sticks
• Gift sets
• Good quality second hand items (sorry no books or videos)
Any items you wish to donate can be passed to the Class Teacher.
The PTA would also like to take this opportunity not only like to thank parents who have contributed to past events, but we would also like to thank any extended family, Grandparents and family friends who have also contributed towards the PTA’s fundraising events. Without your continued support the PTA would not be able to purchase much needed items for the school.
If you have any questions or would like to help out please contact Jane (PTA Chair) via the Class Teacher, School Administrator or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today our two Year 5 pupils will receive training for their important role as sports ambassadors. They will be trained in writing an action plan, leading warm up games and will be given advice and guidance on how to promote Pontlliw to be an even healthier school.
We had a fun morning in nursery today supporting Children in Need. We all wore our comfy pyjamas or something spotty. The children were able to buy toast and cakes and all the money raised will help to support less fortunate children. Thank you for all your kind donations.
