- Children in Need Fun!
Wow, what a wonderful day! Pontlliw Primary did themselves proud, we pulled out all the stops (and spots). The morning was full of busy entrepreneurs willing to give their hard earned cash to a worthwhile cause. The whole school enjoyed purchasing toast and cakes, and even had some stalls with face painting, crayons and candles […]
- Super Superheroes!
What a ‘super’ day we have had in Year 1. We began by finding out what our Superhero names are and writing them in secret messages! Using paint, we were able to work out what everyone’s Superhero name is! Then, we decided that to be a Superhero we need superhero equipment, so we created some […]
- Delicious Chocolate Apples
This week the Year 2 children made some delicious chocolate apples for a bonfire night treat. The children have been busy learning all about instructions, and practised following and giving instructions during the activity. They then went on to writing their own instructions so other children could make chocolate apples. Gwaith Bendigedig, Blwyddyn 2!
- Foundation Phase Autumn Exploration Day
Today the Foundation Phase children enjoyed lots of hands-on, practical Autumn-themed activities. Unfortunately, the weather was against us, but with some adaptations to the planned activities, the children had a fantastic day, during which they further developed their personal & social and independence skills. The children developed their fine motor skills through making bird feeders, […]
- The Evil Pea causes chaos…
What a traumatic week we have had in Year 1! First of all, the Evil Pea caused havoc in the classroom by sellotaping vegetables and covering them in paint! So we made our very own Supertatoes to rescue the vegetables. Then, our lovely class mascot, Ioan the Sheep, was kidnapped by the Evil Pea! Luckily, […]
- Messy Monday
This week, we have been reading the story ‘Charlie’s Superhero Underpants’. Charlie’s underpants go missing and a yeti finds them. The children used the outdoors to create their very own Yetis. Their creations were amazing and all so original. We then decided to go on a leaf hunt and try and find out which trees are […]
- School Council
Our newly appointed school council and Super Ambassadors have had a couple of meetings already and they are very excited about the impact that they can make this year. They have some fantastic ideas and cannot wait to get started! What an enthusiastic group! We are looking forward to seeing what they get up to…
Our book is ‘Superkid’ this week and in the story, he encounters some pirates, so we went on our own pirate scavenger hunt on our outdoor day this week. We found cannonballs (conkers!), a parrot’s feather, a captain’s hook (a twig/stick shaped like a hook!) and we even found a plank for people to walk!! We […]
- Saving the superheroes!
We have been using our superpowers to rescue some superheroes. The superheroes have got into a couple of tricky situations recently, starting with being trapped in ice! We had to work as a team to figure out the quickest and most effective way to save them. We had some fantastic ideas, such as using warm […]

- Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, We’re Going to the Moon!
As part of our topic, “Out of this World!” the nursery children are learning all about space rockets, so we decided to make our own rocket out of cardboard and a lot of sellotape. The children used their fine motor skills to make astronaut tools out of nuts and bolts, then they decorated their rocket […]
