Summer Term 18-19
Blwyddyn 1/2 were hard at work in the Forest School creating a slide and some environmental art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. Article 29: your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities.
Sharing their project
Blwyddyn 1/2 shared their learning about 'The Enchanted Woodland' with the whole school. They showed a slideshow of photographs and talked about their learning throughout the term.
What a lovely morning we had meeting mini-beasts from the garden thanks to puppet theatre Wales.
Miss Honour and the pupils set up a challenging obstacle course for the children to practise their football skills. They had so much fun raising money for UNICEF soccer aid! Here are some photos from our playground challenge! We raised money for such a good cause...helping children all over the world access their rights.
What an interesting talk year 5 had. Diolch to Mr. Clement for telling us about the Save Our Sands campaign which changed our local area for the better 50 years ago. How different our lives would have been without these brave people. Everyone has the right to be heard! Year 5 set off on the SOS Save Our Sands fundraising walk from Burry Port Harbour to Pembrey Country Park. They were very lucky they can walk this route and take in the beautiful scenery, thanks to the local community 50 years ago.
Thank you to Steve for a brilliant drumming session this term, where Year 2 learned about musical elements and developed their listening skills.
Blwyddyn 3 have been collaborating to design their minecraft free builds. They showed exceelent collaboration and construction.
Year 6 climbed Pen-y-fan. Excellent perseverance!
We welcome Mè Sabby
It was a privilege to welcome Mè Sabby, all the way from Lesotho. We thoroughly enjoyed our week with her, where pupils learnt about life in Lesotho, the similarities and differences between Lesotho and Africa, as well as sharing about their country Wales. Mè Sabby experienced education in Wales and learnt, for example, about how we use pupil voice as an integral part of our teaching and learning.
Despite the rain on June 7th, over 250 pupils flocked to the National Botanic Garden to show their support for the Sustainable Development Goals as part of the EU-funded Walk the Global Walk project. We took a group of children who enjoyed celebrating and joining in with ‘Walk the Global Walk’ with our Lesotho visitors.
Reception Class had great fun in ‘The Balance Bike Festival’ at Llanelli Leisure Centre.
Man a Man a Mwnci
Nursery children enjoyed a special visit from friends at Man a Man a Mwnci. They loved looking at the illustrations and listening to the story ‘The Bear from Where?’and were really excited to learn more about the story when they visited Pembrey Country Park! View the video to see what they helped create...
A fond farewell this term to Deng Laoshi. He has been a great friend to the school sharing his experience and teaching us all about Chinese language and culture. Zaijian he duo xie!
Van Buren “one of the biggest names in British Illusionists for many a decade”
Internationally acclaimed magician & illusionist Andrew Van Buren came to dazzle us with magic illusions & circus skills. What a treat it was, as we watched a magic show and then were taught some circus skills.
Artist, Rhiannon Roberts, works with our children
Here it is, our special 50th Anniversary mural! Diolch Rhiannon Roberts for helping us celebrate in such a creative and special way!
Fire safety talk
Mrs. Goldsmith kindly visited to talk to us about fire safety. We learned that we must test our fire alarms regularly and what number to phone in an emergency!
A small group from Year 3 entered a Minecraft Competition, held in Parc Y Scarlets. They had to collaborate to build a rugby village. Da iawn plant!
In the morning we listened to welsh songs and voted which ones we prefered. In the afternoon, we learned that saving energy can be fun and keep you fit. We held our very own Party with this unique Pedal power experience. All the energy needed for the disco, as produced by pedaling the bikes. This gave the pupils an understanding of the energy requirements needed to run a disco. Furthermore, all pupils measured their pulse rates before and after their pedaling. What fun we had!
The sun was shining for the Golden Jubilee sponsored walk. What a beautiful day it was! Everyone enjoyed a ice lolly as a treat for reaching Burry Port. Well done to those who wore hints of golds and enjoyed wearing our Anniversay T-shirt’s once again . Thank you for your support!
Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Sports Day this year. A big well done to all pupils for taking part and congratulations to ty Dewi for winning overall.
