Friend or Foe?

Year 4 were visited by PC Parry this morning to talk and learn about friends or foes. They looked at different people and thought about whether they could trust them, or not, and also worked through different scenarios and discussed what would be the best course of action in that situation.

They were brilliant in their discussions, mature with their suggestions and showed just how sensible and aware children I never Pontlliw are – da iawn!

The children also voted on the name for our group, and the winning name was SAFETY SOLDIERS!What a fantastic start to this important pupil voice group.

We did LEGO WeDo!

Year 4 had a great afternoon working on projects to build and code using the LEGO WeDo 2.0 kits. They made fans, alarm robots and other weird and wonderful creations!

They worked brilliantly together, problem solving and keeping their kits in working order – da iawn blwyddyn pedwar!
