Children in Need – Reception

What a great day we all had.

Reception dressed the part and had fun making masks, counting spots and creating fantastic Pudsey pictures.

All for a very good cause!

We were all so busy, they should be tired teddy bears tonight!

Children in Need Fun!

Wow, what a wonderful day!

Pontlliw Primary did themselves proud, we pulled out all the stops (and spots).

The morning was full of busy entrepreneurs willing to give their hard earned cash to a worthwhile cause.

The whole school enjoyed purchasing toast and cakes, and even had some stalls with face painting, crayons and candles to buy.

Pontlliw swapped their blue jumpers for PJ’s, spots and Children in Need T-shirts to support other children in Britain.

So far the school have raised a fantastic total of £460 with some small amounts being brought to us next week.

CONGRATULATIONS Pontlliw, you have helped to change some lives.

Look out for our name on the show tonight

 

Wearing Spots, Raising Lots.

Pontlliw School have had a fantastic morning celebrating Children in Need. Pupils and staff were a wonderful sight to see in our achievers assembly. The children are now looking forward to the toast and cake sell. Thank you all for your donations.

Anti Bullying Assembly

Our School Council and Super Ambassadors presented an informative assembly this morning to mark the start of Anti Bullying Week. They have worked hard to promote the importance of anti bullying and PC Parry and PC Hinds also joined us to re-iterate this message. This years theme is ‘All Different. All Equal’ and the children have supported this by wearing odd socks today to highlight uniqueness and individuality.

PC. Parry visit

This term, we are learning more about the ‘real-life superheroes’ that are around us. We’ve started by looking at the role of the police officer. Today, we had a visit from PC. Parry and PC. Hinds, who told us about the job they do and how they help keep us safe. Then, we had the opportunity to try on some examples of uniform that a police officer might wear. Thank you PC Parry and PC Hinds for an informative and fun visit.

Foundation Phase Autumn Exploration Day

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today the Foundation Phase children enjoyed lots of hands-on, practical Autumn-themed activities. Unfortunately, the weather was against us, but with some adaptations to the planned activities, the children had a fantastic day, during which they further developed their personal & social and independence skills.
The children developed their fine motor skills through making bird feeders, which they then hung in our nature reserve, to help our feathery friends prepare for winter. Acorns were planted, and the children are looking forward to helping them grow into mighty oak trees. Autumn wreaths were created, to celebrate the changes in leaves that the Autumn season brings. Natural Autumn collages were created in groups, and the children developed collaborative and creative skills. The children enjoyed getting messy through exploring gooey pumpkins, using a variety of tools to scoop, scrape and cut. Autumn colours and materials were explored using colour swatches and magnifying glasses, to help the children develop close observation skills.
What a busy, fun-filled day. We are sure that the children will sleep well tonight…and so will the staff!

The Evil Pea causes chaos…

What a traumatic week we have had in Year 1!
First of all, the Evil Pea caused havoc in the classroom by sellotaping vegetables and covering them in paint! So we made our very own Supertatoes to rescue the vegetables.
Then, our lovely class mascot, Ioan the Sheep, was kidnapped by the Evil Pea! Luckily, we have been learning all about persuasion in our language lessons, so decided to put our persuasive skills to the test and try and persuade the Evil Pea to return Ioan. We created videos using the Ipads, made posters which we put up around the school trying to persuade other classes to help us and we completed challenges, given to us by the Evil Pea, linked to our focus sound of the week. By 3pm, we had pretty much given up hope of ever seeing Ioan again, but then Mrs Norman arrived with a parcel for us…..our amazing persuasive skills had worked and the Evil Pea had sent Ioan back!!!! We were all so thrilled and can now have a relaxing, enjoyable weekend, knowing that our little friend, Ioan, is happy and safe. Well done Blwyddyn 1- amazing work this week. What a super team we are!!
