Year 3 Stadium Visit

What a fantastic time the Year 3’s had visiting the Liberty Stadium today.  In the morning, the children took part in a healthy eating workshop where they found out lots of important information about different food groups and what types of food professional rugby players eat to keep themselves fit and healthy. After listening carefully to the information,  they were challenged to make their own healthy sandwich. They had lots of different ingredients to chose from but they had to pick really carefully to ensure their sandwich had the correct proportion of carbohydrate, protein, dairy and fat as outlined on the ‘Eat Well’ plate. What a brilliant effort boys and girls, your sandwiches looked amazing! I hope you enjoyed eating them.

In the afternoon, the children were given a tour of the stadium. They thoroughly enjoyed this experience and loved having the opportunity to see what it was like to be in the shoes of a professional rugby player, even if it was just for a day!

Year 3 Paramedic Visit

We had a special visit today from paramedics Steff and Tash, along with their ambulance. In PSE this term we have been learning about first aid and the DR ABC method and are so lucky to have had this opportunity this afternoon. The session was so informative and the children thoroughly enjoyed having their stats read and being able to explore inside the ambulance. The children had lots of questions to ask and each of them was answered in detail. A huge thank you, I’m sure the children will remember this session for a long time!

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

As part of our topic, ‘Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside!’  we decided to bring the beach to Pontlliw. The children built sandcastles, made ice cream sundaes, drank ice cool slushies and even paddled. What a fabulous morning!
