Red Nose Day
Thank you to everyone who dressed up and contributed to Red Nose Day. We raised £140
Please can I ask that pupils wear our school uniform where possible as it is important to maintain the identity of our school.
Thank you for your support.

Nursery enjoyed dressing up as an animal and making funny face red nose pizzas for Red Nose Day – thank you to all parents for supporting this event.
Reception have been busy practising our busy writing skills. We have been writing our names, simple words and working on writing rhyming words.
Year 1 have been struck with illness this week. A HUGE get well soon to all of us still unwell, we hope you feel better soon and look forward to seeing your smiling faces back in class!
For those of us that have been in school we have been working so hard in all of our subjects, from money in maths, to ball skills in PE!
On Friday we enjoyed dressing up as wild animals as part of our Red Nose Day fun. We were also able to enjoy our brand new refurbished outdoor areas and Mrs Nicholls made sure we knew what was expected of us in each area.
We have been enjoying exploring our Power of Plants topic looking at all of the different parts of plants and their jobs. Today we have started an experiment looking at how roots take water and nutrients to the rest of the plant.
On Friday we dressed up as different animals for Red Nose Day. We all looked so cool and had lots of fun doing Red Nose Day challenges. This week in Year 2, we have been learning all about life cycles. We first learnt all about a life cycle of a human and then we learnt all about a life cycle of a hen. We also looked at other farm animals and their life cycles too. This morning, we have been busy having a go at a fun science experiment. We mixed bicarbonate soda and white vinegar together and the results were amazing!
Year 3 looked amazing dressed up as animals to support Red Nose Day last Friday. Well done Year 3! Another busy week for Year 3, we have had lots of seeds germinating over in the poly tunnel. We now have carrots, beetroot, radish and rocket.
Another busy week in Year 4. We are really enjoying our weekly recorder lessons and we’re all making great progress! Huge congratulations to the pupils in Year 4 who became Global Finalists in an Art Competition and the Welsh Recitation Competition. Ardderchog!
We have been working hard creating a plan of their very own Theme Park. Working out how much it will cost to create! Can they afford it?
We have also been investigating Gravity and Friction. Year 5 are lucky to have a chance to take part in Yoga sessions on a Monday. Please can the children come to school in P.E kit on a Monday for the next 2 weeks.
In Year 6 we have had an action packed few days as we finished off our topic of Coasts which we have thoroughly enjoyed. We worked collaborately to create an ebook which included everything we have learnt and found out about coasts. What a treat it was when we went to Llantwit Beach last Thursday to have chips on the beach. They were so yummy and somehow chips taste better when you’re on the beach. We had an extra special treat on Monday 21st when we went to Barry Memo along with other primary schools to meet David Baddiel. He spoke about his books, how he gets his ideas and he even read some extracts from his
books. It was really interesting.
Mae hi’n heulog heddiw – It is sunny today (Phonetically pronounced – My heen high-log hethew)
