Spellings 22.3.19

We are really pleased with the efforts that the children mage this week with their 'Come and See' spellings. 

We would like to spend the next week reinforcing some Mathematical spelling. As before, the harder spellings are at the end of the list. Have fun learning and practising them.













Extension words:










Homework 15.03.19


This year, Fairtrade Fortnight will focus on cocoa. Farmers of this much-loved product have seen prices fall to crisis levels in the last few years, making life incredibly difficult for cocoa farmers. This is especially true in West Africa where most cocoa is grown. The drop in cocoa prices means it’s more important than ever to shout about why choosing Fairtrade is so important, but we need to go further. 


For homework this week please could you create a Fairtrade recipe which will be judged by the Fairtrade committee in the following weeks. (Learners do not need to actually cook the product).


Thank you.

Spelling 15.3.19


This week, we are concentrating on our new 'Come ans See' spellings for the topic of 'Opportunities.'

Please try and learn as many of the spellings from the list below.

Dear Parents,

There is no set homework tasks for this half term, in order to give children the opportunity to prepare for any of the Eisteddfod competitions. However, please continue to read regularly with your child.

There will be various home/school competitions for your children to enter as part of our St. David’s Day celebrations this year. Please could you ensure that all competition entries are brought into school to be judged by Monday 4th March 2019.


Children are welcome to enter as many competitions as they wish, and winning entries will be announced during our Eisteddfod celebrations on Thursday 7th March (Foundation Phase). The children are able to choose which competition/s to enter. They are welcome to enter all competitions open to them. There will be house points awarded for every competition entry. The winning entries will receive house points, certificates and a special welsh prize. The competitions are as follows: Whole School Competitions:


Welsh Learner of the Year-The children are encouraged to use what they have been learning in school to showcase their knowledge and understanding of the Welsh language. They may choose to write some phrases or sentences, a letter, conversation or celebrity profile in Welsh. The children must also write a paragraph in English explaining why they think they should be ‘Welsh Learner of the Year’. There is a very useful online dictionary on the website bbclearnwelsh which will be helpful when the children are writing in Welsh.


3-D Modelling Competition – Children are encouraged to make a 3-D model of something which represents Wales for them. Children may use whichever means of media they wish and the topic is broad to encourage creativity.


Cookery Competition - Children are encouraged to cook something which is a traditional Welsh recipe or depicts Wales to them.


Young Performer Competition- As part of our Eisteddfod this year we are also encouraging the children to showcase their talents. Auditions took place in class on Thursday 21st February. All the children who  auditioned have been chosen to represent their class during our Eisteddfod celebration.


The children are also encouraged to wear traditional Welsh costume or a full welsh sporting kit such as rugby or football. The Foundation Phase Eisteddfod is being celebrated on Thursday 7th March.


Have a lovely half term!
