Bronze Siarter Iaith Achieved

This afternoon the whole school was presented with our Bronze siarter iaith for achievements in the Welsh language. The children and staff are extremely proud of all we have achieved during our journey to receiving the award.
In September we will begin our journey to achieving the Silver Award 🥈 to raise standards in the welsh language further.

Enterprising Engineers

Year 6 pupils took part in a STEM challenge and stepped into the shoes of an engineer for the day. Pupils had the challenge to get the lighthouse keeper out of his lighthouse in a storm by designing and making a carrier with a light that can be seen in the dark. They then had to wire the circuit in order to light the bulb. They also had to create a device with a motor to be transported back up the zip wire to rescue the lighthouse keepers friend! They were given £120 Faradays and had to budget in order to buy all of their equipment from the classroom DIY store. The winning team of the day will visit Pontardullais Comp on July the 12th to represent Pontlliw in another STEM challenge day.
