Autumn Term 2

 

This half term our topic is: Festivals and Celebrations.

 

We started by learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gun Powder plot and we had lots of fun toasting marshmallows and writing poems about Bonfire night.

 

We then learnt about the Hanukkah story and discussed other celebrations such as birthdays, weddings and christenings. 

 

We are now onto Christmas celebrations and have been practicing hard for the Christmas concert. We are going to be learning about the Christmas story and writing our letters to Father Christmas!

 

In maths, we are learning all about 2D shape and are also practicing addition and subtraction. 

 

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

Spring 1

 

Our topic for Spring term 1 is: Gwlad! Gwlad!

 

We will be learning about some famous Welsh myths and legends and also learning about some of our local history.

Please help your child this half term by discussing any history that you know about the local area and maybe visiting a few local historical places.

 

We have been reading the story 'The King with Horses' Ears' and have been using many different skills to plan a feast for the king and his guests. 

 

Unfortunately, due to circumstances surrounding the virus outbreak our feast has been postponed.

 

The children were sent home with packs last week that include maths and literacy work. After Easter we will be setting work on purple mash. You can use your child's log in card to access their account and keep track of their work. I will also be contacting you via text to remind you of any work set. 

 

Have a lovely Easter Break!

 

Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you all again soon!

Summer Term

 

Well this term has been a little weird! We have all been learning using online platforms such as purple mash and class dojo. Every week I will be posting 3 examples of great work that I have been sent by you that week. Don't worry if I have not chosen yours this week, everybody will have the chance to get their work on the website!

 

I love seeing all your work everyday and you have all been working very hard, da iawn!
