Just a little reminder about Giglets. Before October half term the children were given their passwords to take home to access a site called Giglets. On this site will be an array of books for you to read to your child and/or for them to read themselves. The school have purchased this and is free for you to use. If you have lost or are having any difficulties using the site please contact your child's teacher.

World Book Day

World Book Day 2023


Visit to Pontypridd Library

Yesterday we had an enjoyable visit to Pontypridd Library. 

We took part in a crafting session, making daffodils for a lovely display in the library. This will be on display for all to see during half term. 

Then we were allowed to have a look at the children's books and read them with our friends. Finally we listened carefully to a story about Alan the bear. 

We would like to thank Hywel and Donna for welcoming us.

There are lots of free activities available for children at the library during half term. 

This week everyone in class will be bringing home more information about this.  

Problem Solving

We have been doing a bit of problem solving linked to our topic.

Our challenge was to work collaboratively in a group to put together a human skeleton. Some of the bones were quite easy to place correctly, while others proved to be a little more tricky. 

Then we had to try to label the bones correctly. For help we used a great online resource about 'Systems in the Human Body'. 


Dance / Fitness - Extreme Sport

This term some of our dance and fitness lessons have been linked to extreme sports such as kayaking, rock climbing, snowboarding, windsurfing and skydiving.

We have been creating movements individually, then working in pairs and groups to make our own dance sequences linked to extreme sports. 

Please have a look at our photos and videos.

First Aid Day

On Thursday we had a fantastic day learning all about first aid and life saving skills with paramedics from 121 Medics. 

We were able to practise doing CPR as well as putting each other into the recovery position. Some of us even practised on Mrs King!

We learned about what is inside a first aid box and started to make posters and leaflets about how important it is to know some first aid skills. We even allowed to have a good look inside the ambulance!

This all links with the work we are doing in class about the body and it has helped us understand more about the role of a paramedic. I wonder if anyone in our class will become a paramedic in the future?  


Chinese New Year

We made and decorated a Chinese dragon ready for our Chinese dragon dance.

Miss Lei our Mandarin tutor taught us some moves and we did our dragon dance around the hall, to music.

Chinese New Year

On Friday we took part in some activities linked to Chinese New Year.

We started the day by taking part in a live online lesson. It showed us how to cook some delicious food that is popular during Chinese New Year celebrations.

Later we listened to stories and songs online, as well as learning how to make origami animals. 


Visit from Santa

Just before we finished for the Christmas holidays, we had a visit from Father Christmas. He couldn't believe how quiet and well behaved we all were. Mrs King couldn't believe it either!

Children in Need 2022

For Children in Need in November we wore spotty clothes or pyjamas to raise money for this very good cause.

When the donations were counted, we raised well over £300. Well done to everyone! 

Here are some photos from the day.

Football Relief Day

Before half term we took part in a penalty shoot out in the top block. 

The speed of our shots was recorded and a gold certificate was given to the fastest boy and girl. Well done to Brody and Seren who were our winners.

Also well done to everybody who took part and took home a red certificate.

Please have a look at our photos.

Before half term we had lots of fun learning with Lisa from Experimental Science.

Our workshop was called Fab Physics and our photos and videos show some of the experiments we experienced.

Visit to South Wales Aviation Museum

This week Year 3/4 had a wonderful day at the South Wales Aviation Museum at St Athans, where we were able to climb onboard different aircraft of all shapes and sizes.

On one aeroplane we fastened  our seatbelts and took part in the onboard safety instructions, as well as listening to information from the captain.

We were able to sit in and explore a wide variety of aircraft large and small. We were also allowed to use the aircraft controls and press all the buttons, which we loved.

Please have a look at our photos showing our experience throughout our busy day.

Sun Safety Videos

We have been working in groups to create a sun safety video.

We looked at videos online and discussed the important information we needed to include. 

Then we made a list of the success criteria.

We are enjoying working in teams.

Our videos will follow shortly.  

On Monday we celebrated Earth Day. We found out about different things we can do to help care for our environment and in doing so, help look after the earth.

We then created lovely colourful posters to remind everyone of this important message.

Please look at our lovely posters in the slide show below.

Celebrating Earth Day 2022

As well as creating posters for Earth Day, we started planting seeds to grow a variety of flowers, salad leaves and lettuce. 

More photos will follow shortly. 

Visit to St Catherine's Church in Pontypridd

Today we visited St Catherine's Church in Pontypridd.

When we arrived we were greeted by Trish Tazzini-Lloyd who spoke to us about why people go to church. Then she took us around inside the church and explained different features and what they are used for.

We learned lots of information which we will use in class when we create information leaflets about the church.

We would like to say a big thank you to Trish Tazzini-Lloyd and St Catherine's for welcoming us today. 


Eisteddfod Creative Competition

Here are the children in Year 3 who entered our Eisteddfod Creative Competition. They all did so well with their lovely models, paintings, drawings and collages.

The winners were Carter Davies (1st), Eleanor Ford (2nd) and Siena Palmer (3rd).

Well done to everyone for using your creative skills during the half term holiday and a big thank you to parents and grandparents who helped when needed.

Every child has had a special certificate and stars on their chart and all entries will be put on display in the hall for everyone to enjoy

World Book Day 2022

In Year 3 we had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day today.

It was lovely to see the children dressed as characters from their favourite books or dressed in their pyjamas ready for a bedtime story.

In class we talked to each other about who we were dressed up as and showed the books and cuddly toys we had brought in from home.

Next Mrs King read her favourite story, 'The Day the Crayons Quit'which made us laugh. 

Later we started to make some bright and colourful leaflets about World Book Day.  

Here are some photos from our day.

Autumn Term 2021

Visit to Llancaiach Fawr


Back in the Autumn term we visited Llancaiach Fawr to find out more about how the Tudor people lived in the past. We had an enjoyable time visiting all the different rooms in the manor house. We found out about the Pritchard family who lived there and also learned about the jobs of the servants who worked for them. Here are some photos from our visit.
