This week the Safety Soldiers pupil voice group worked on gathering ideas for improving road safety outside our school. The children discussed the issues and how unsafe parking affects different people. They came up with some fantastic ways to improve road safety, and will be working on them in the coming weeks.
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.
We combined numeracy and P.E this afternoon by creating 4 step asymmetrical routines. The children thought long and hard about what balances and rolls they could perform where their bodies did not look the same on both sides. Some children turned into peer teachers and helped other work out their routines.
We had a very special visitor in class today. Mr Godwin came in to tell us more about his role as a firefighter. We found out what a typical day would be like in the fire service and we also learnt some very important information regarding fire safety. A huge thank you to Mr Godwin for volunteering to come in and see us. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session with you.
What a fantastic day Year 1 have had at the fire station. They learnt lots about the role of fire fighters and what to do in the event of a fire. They had the opportunity to use the equipment and even got to sit in the fire engine. We were also lucky to see an ambulance too! What a brilliant day. Thank you to the firefighters at Swansea Central Fire Station for taking the time to help us learn more about their important role.
Today was a another proud day for Pontlliw. Our Year 6 and Year 4 all girls teams played at Play Football and were absolutely AMAZING. They played with a 100% determination and dedication. They played as a team showing encouragement and support. Da iawn merched.
What a fantastic time the Year 3’s had visiting the Liberty Stadium today. In the morning, the children took part in a healthy eating workshop where they found out lots of important information about different food groups and what types of food professional rugby players eat to keep themselves fit and healthy. After listening carefully to the information, they were challenged to make their own healthy sandwich. They had lots of different ingredients to chose from but they had to pick really carefully to ensure their sandwich had the correct proportion of carbohydrate, protein, dairy and fat as outlined on the ‘Eat Well’ plate. What a brilliant effort boys and girls, your sandwiches looked amazing! I hope you enjoyed eating them.
In the afternoon, the children were given a tour of the stadium. They thoroughly enjoyed this experience and loved having the opportunity to see what it was like to be in the shoes of a professional rugby player, even if it was just for a day!
As part of our Children in Need activities, Mrs Keegan kindly organised a treasure hunt. The nursery children were very excited as they were able to look all around the school for clues. The year 6 children helped the little ones to follow the map and to find the final clue that spelt ‘Pudsey’. Thank you Mr Keegan and year 6, we had a wonderful time.
