As part of our Music lessons this term, pupils combined their creative skills with their knowledge of WW2. The children had free choice of any instrument and had to choose an event that happened during WW2.

They then performed to the rest of the class who provided feedback of two stars and a wish. Continue reading →
The children were set a challenge to develop a variety of skills on Friday.
1. Research a wartime recipe – ICT
2. Buy the ingredients and bring in the utensils. LNF
3. Follow the instructions. Literacy
4. Weigh and measure the ingredients. Numeracy
We then cooked the ingredients. While the food was cooking, pupils washed their dishes and cleared the hall.
Then came the most important part… pupils tasted their creations. (Some tastier than others)
Pupils were independent throughout and were absolutely fantastic! Continue reading →
A big thank you to the choir members who represented the school on Friday night at St Catherine’s church, Gorseinon. They sung 4 songs at the Tree of Light Festival. The organisers of the event were very impressed with the choir, particularly their sign language version of ‘White Christmas’. They are singing again on Sunday at Morriston Hospital at 11am for the patients, organised by the League of Friends. Continue reading →
Today Blwyddyn 6 were set a challenge to communicate by using the technique of morse code. The children weren’t given any advice on how to do this but had to problem solve with their team to light the bulb and communicate as they did during World War 2.
Today our two Year 5 pupils will receive training for their important role as sports ambassadors. They will be trained in writing an action plan, leading warm up games and will be given advice and guidance on how to promote Pontlliw to be an even healthier school.
We had a fun morning in nursery today supporting Children in Need. We all wore our comfy pyjamas or something spotty. The children were able to buy toast and cakes and all the money raised will help to support less fortunate children. Thank you for all your kind donations.
