Bont Book Award

image  Last term, pupils from Years 1-6 were chosen to participate in the Bont Book Award, along with pupils from our cluster primary schools and Pontarddulais Comprehensive school.  The children had to read a number of books, considering them in terms of content, enjoyment etc.  The children then participated in a morning in the comprehensive school, where they worked with the children from the other schools on activities related to the focus books.  The morning then culminated in the children voting for their favourite books in each category.  The winning books were:
Year 1/2: Snatchabook by Helen & Thomas Docherty
Year 3/4:  Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
Year 5/6:  Demon Dentist by David Walliams


Thank you to the pupils who participated for their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication.  You represented Pontlliw Primary extremely well, and we are very proud of you all.


Year 2 Easter Bonnet Competition

IMG_4230  The Year 2 children recently took part in Hobbycraft’s School’s Easter Bonnet Competition.  We are absolutely delighted that the children’s hard work and creative skills were recognised, with the children’s bonnet winning second prize!  Thank you to everybody who voted for the bonnet.  The children are so proud of themselves, and rightly so!


Year 2 Visit to St. Fagan’s

Just before the Easter holidays, the Year 2 children visited St. Fagan’s Museum in Cardiff.  The trip was an exciting end to our ‘Take a Trip in a Time Machine’ topic, in which the children found out about the changes in the world and life over time.

We had lots of fun visiting the different buildings, including the shop, bakery, chapel, school and many homes.  We spotted lots of artefacts that we had been learning about.  We also enjoyed visiting Beti Bwt, and she talked to us about washday a hundred years ago.  We all even had a chance to help out with the washing using items such as washboards, wash dollies and the mangle.  We then went to the school, and were very shocked by the changes.  We couldn’t believe how different the school looked, as well as the way the children were taught… and we weren’t too keen on the thought of the cane!

We returned to school happy and full of fantastic memories… but were grateful to be back in our bright, colourful and fun-filled classroom after we saw what school life used to be like!
