Tales of Wales,

Tales of Wales,

Stories from a fine country.

Tales of Wales,

Tales of Wales,

Stories from our history

They told us three stories.

The story of Robin Ddu

The story of Rebecca and her Sisters

The story of the Afanc

Joss: I like the story about the Rebecca Rioters – the way they acted it was brilliant. I like the way it’s like a play and they involve the audience.

 

Abi: I liked the Rebecca Sisters story – I thought it was really funny because some of Class Five boys had to dress as girls.

 

Milan: The story of Rebecca and her daughters was really funny.

Megan: In the story about The Afanc I liked the ending when they dragged him up the mountain.

 

Amelia: I liked the Robin Ddu story best. It involved loads of people and it was fun to watch.

Harriet: I’m writing a story about a star that falls from the sky. People will think it is magic, but it isn’t.

A Visit from Marc (And friends)

Today Marc Griffiths visited the school. Marc is one of our favourite visitors, he makes us laugh, and smile and think. 

We love his visits.

Marc worked with the whole school during the afternoon. 

Marc’s show was about heroes.

We learnt about animal heroes.

Dogs, elephants, gorillas and birds have all played an important role during war time. 

Did you know that even a slug can be a hero!

We all learnt that we can be a hero everyday by respecting ourselves and others. Our words and actions help us to be heroes. 

Thank you Marc (and friends) for another amazing afternoon.

Dydd Gwyl Dewi.

We celebrated Saint Davids Day together today. 

Firstly we welcomed Father Ross and some parishioners to school as we all joined together to celebrate Mass.

Then we enjoyed a mini eisteddfod. Class 1 sang a Welsh song, Class 2 recited a poem.

Children in Classes 3,4 and 5 competed against each other. They split into different groups and learnt poems. Everyone tried very hard.

Mr Evans, our Welsh link governor, was the judge – it was a hard job. Llongyfarchiadau pawb!
