Reception have been quite worried! They have been counting down to Christmas Eve and have realised that Santa doesn’t have a roof on his sleigh! They are quite worried, and decided that they should find out which material would make a good roof and keep Santa dry ( just in case it rains).
Reception had some wonderful ideas, and realised that some material has tiny holes in it, and the water goes through!
Reception have spent the past week talking about themselves!
The children brought into school some fantastic boxes, decorated and full of their favourite items. The rest of the class guessed which of the children they belonged to. We had some great surprises along the way, and found out some lovely things about our children. Well done Reception wonderful presentations!
Congratulations to our ‘Maths Magic’ team, who took part in our cluster Maths event in Pontardulais Comprehensive. Each team played their heart out, and showed that Pontlliw has great Mathematical skills.
All of our year groups showed great team spirit and encouraged each other to do best they could. Our Year 5/6 team got though to the final and won their heat.
nursery and Reception have begun their week thinking about friendship! We read ‘Hugless Douglas’ by David Melling, and realised that we can all be good friends!
The session began with the children creating a handprint poster, showing of their ‘Helping Hands’, they made some beautiful heart toast with a friend. There is more to come later today with friendship bracelets, and making a mobile.
After the fun morning with nursery, Reception set to work investigating the properties of a pumpkin. We described how it’s skin felt, measured how tall they were, we rolled them and even found out if they could float or if they would sink…… Do you know?
