Oracy Assessment Autumn Term Years 1 to 6

Dear Parents’

Over the summer holidays all pupils in years 1 through 6 need to produce a memory board about themselves. This will then be used by them to deliver a maximum 5 minute presentation to their classmates in the autumn term.

The boards/paper should be A4 or A3 in size and can contain any information that the pupils wish. They may choose to focus on hobbies, holidays, sports or other interests – its up to them.

The presentations will be given in the first week back at school in September. They will form part of your son/daughters oracy assessment and hence it is important that pupils prepare for this.

Thank you for your support in this matter.

Mrs. Norman

Super Ambassador Webinar

This morning, two of our Super Ambassadors took part in a live Webinar with the newly appointed Children’s Commissioner for Wales, Sally Holland. They had the opportunity to communicate with other schools from Swansea and other parts of Wales. They discussed many issues relating to the rights of the child and have gathered some good ideas for us to try out in our school next year.
