A Day at the Beach.

The nursery children, and their parents and grandparents, had an amazing time in Aberavon today. First of all they played in the adventure park where they climbed, balanced and zipped along on the zip wire. Then we went onto the beach where we made sand castles and paddled in the sea. After eating our lunch, we went into the Lido where we splashed in the pools and jumped over the water jets. What a wonderful day we had!

Bye Bye Butterflies!

Today was the day that the nursery class set their butterflies free. The nursery children have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. A few weeks ago we had some tiny little caterpillars given to us. Within a couple of weeks they had grown much bigger and we watched as each caterpillar turned into a chrysalis. We then waited with great excitement, until five beautiful butterflies emerged. The children were fascinated by the transformation.

Race For Life

Rain stopped play today! But we celebrated our yearly Race for Life with an assembly discussing all about how we can support people with cancer. We even had special visitors come to the school to celebrate the event – Our Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, our chair of Governors and the Evening Post.
We will be running tomorrow for the race for life, hoping to collect sponsors for this amazing cause, so far we have raised £500. Thank you for your support. Continue reading

We do like to be beside the seaside!

Look out Aberavon here comes Pontlliw primary!

Bags packed, registers taken, sandwiches checked, buckets and spades in hand, and we were off!

It was a fantastic day and the weather was kind to us too…..

We dug, paddled, run, played football, and frizbee.

After the first round of fun we sat for our lunch, even with the avid onlooking seagulls, waiting for an opportunity of a crumb here and there. Soon we were up again for more sand castles and the second half of the footie!

A lovely day had by all!

Pontlliw Beach Party

It was a lovely sunny day so we brought the beach to Pontlliw. The nursery and reception children had their very own beach party! We paddled in the paddling pool, built sand castles, made pretend ice creams and real ice cream sundaes that we could eat. Yum! It was such a fabulous day that even some of the school governors joined us!
