Half Term Homework:

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.


3D Modelling Competition – Children are encouraged to make a 3D 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 will take place in class on Thursday 21st February. Two children will then be chosen to represent their class during our Eisteddfod celebration. The children may like to prepare a song or dance, recite a poem or play a musical instrument.

The children are also encouraged to wear traditional welsh costume or a full welsh sporting kit such as rugby or football.


The Eisteddfod is being celebrated on Thursday 27th February for children in Reception to Year 2

What do you see when you switch it on? What noises / sounds does it make? What happens after you've switched it on? Where does your magic torch take you?

For homework this week, please help your child learn to independently login to Mathletics. Username and password information has been put in every book bag.

Please learn the spelling words provided below (children will be tested on Friday 20th September) and please read with your child every day. 

We have also provided Active Learn / Bug Club login details in your child's book bag (all usernames and passwords have been reset for this year!) if you could explore these sites as well.  These login details (including Mathletics) have been made for your own safekeeping, so that your child can always access these websites at home.
