Stars of the Year

Today we had our final star of the week. The whole school received the peer supporter certificate for being kind and caring friends on the yard, the sports award for supporting each other in every sporting event and each class had star of the week for being AWESOME. We have had a fantastic year fill with many successes.
We would like to wish Mr Smith good luck in his new job and Mrs Mathias as she embarks on her retirement.
Thank you to you as parents for the support through the year. We would like to wish you a happy and safe Summer. Continue reading

Tremendous Triathletes.

Today 28 Junior pupils took on the challenge to swim, bike and run in the name of Swansea Tri. The children were extremely excited but a little nervous. All pushed themselves to achieve the best race ever. The event was held at Penlan Sports Centre. We were so proud of each and every one of them; they certainly deserved their medals.

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!

Awesome Art Work

Today year 4/5 visited the Glynn Vivian Art Museum. As we are studying the body, our focus was portraits. Pupils drew art work by Josef Herman, they also drew the art work collected by Richard Glynn Vivian.
The children then looked closely in the mirror to observe their facial features. They drew their faces and finally created their portrait collage using coloured paper and card.
The children thoroughly enjoyed their morning and have developed their first hand observation skills by using different media to do so. Continue reading

Pontlliw Bake Off.

Well… What an exciting day! This morning the children set up their business, thinking of a name for their company, a design for their cake, catchy slogans and looked at costing.
They then researched the ingredients, amounts in grams and converted to ounces and worked through the method whilst looking at oven temperature and cooking times.
This afternoon it was time for the bake off. The hall had a buzz of business and competition of weighing and measuring to the exact gram.
Once the cakes were in the oven we had 20 minutes to tidy up and even managed to fit in a quick Zumba session – burning calories to eat calories.
Mrs Norman then judged each cake on appearance, texture and taste.
The children thoroughly enjoyed. I was so proud of their independence to measure, crack eggs and work as a team. Continue reading
