Just a reminder that there are 2 INSET days at the beginning of the Autumn Term – September 4th & 5th. We look forward to seeing the children on Wednesday 6th September.
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!
The nursery children ran their Race for Life today. After a warm up with Mrs Evans they were off, running as fast as their little legs would carry them. They were amazing and they were all rewarded with a medal. Da iawn nursery! I am so proud of you.
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.
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
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!
Year 4/5 have had a fantastic day developing their PE skills and building strength…wow, children have SO much energy! We have played volleyball, rounders, rugby, team building, tug of war, blind trail and built sand castles. The perfect end to a busy week.
Year 1 enjoyed a visit from P.C. Hinds today where they learnt about the emergency services. They discussed different scenarios that would require help and what to do in an emergency. Thank you P.C. Hinds for an informative visit.
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!
Year 1 and Year 4/5 made an awesome team today and buddied up to measure and compare parts of the body. They measured height, hand span, and foot length.
The pupils then took part in various physical activities and described how their bodies felt when they exercised.
