YEAR 6 VISIT THE GSUS RELIGIOUS EDUCATION BUS

On Monday September 23rd Year 6 pupils had the opportunity to visit the Religious Education GSUS bus over at the Ysgol Penweddig campus. They thoroughly enjoyed completing various interactive activities on special computers which had been set up on the bus – including watching film clips, reading extracts from the Bible, and sending and receiving imaginary emails from children and young people faced with various dilemmas. The visit was a great help in assisting the pupils to explore and understand themes such as fear, revenge and forgiveness, and in deepening their understanding of some of the Bible’s main themes.

Year 6 pupils enjoyed a very interesting visit to the National Wool Museum in Drefach Felindre.

By watching the machines at work and being guided around the mill, we learnt how the wool goes from being on the sheep's back to an item of clothing that we can wear.

Everyone also had the chance to experiment with wool, by creating a felt and decorating it with various colours and patterns - thank you to Joanna for working with us in the crafts room.

The biggest fun of course was dressing up in various woollen coats and shawls - we looked so cool!

 

RECEPTION CLASSES VISIT CWMWYTHIG FARM!

On Thursday 26th of September, the Reception class visited ‘Cwmwythig’ Farm near Capel Bangor.

We had a very warm welcome from the Evans family and we were fortunate to have a guided tour around the busy farm. We saw the cattle being milked in the rotating parlour and learnt about the milk’s journey from the farm to the shop. The children enjoyed seeing the calves, bulls, hens and ‘Nel’ the goat, which stars in the television programme ‘Hafod Haul’. After a busy and exciting morning, the children enjoyed a drink of squash and a biscuit.

Thank you to Thomas Crocket for inviting the pupils along to present the match between Aberystwyth Town and GAP Connah's Quay at Park Avenue last Saturday.

The pupils were given a very warm welcome with a tour of the stadium including the dressing rooms, before being given the opportunity to play a friendly match at half-time.

Every pupil received a goody bag to take home with them as well. Result!

Friday September the 20th an excited bus full of year 5 children went on a trip to Castell Henllys.

We were welcomed by a Celt named Cai, who took us back in time to the Iron age, where there were no toilets! Once at the Hill-fort the children had the opportunity to sample life as a Celt through building walls, baking bread and weaving baskets. Once they’d had their faces painted they were ready to attack the enemy!

The children thoroughly enjoyed!

On Friday, 6th of September, we went on a trip around town. We started by looking at the Eisteddfod Chair that Gwenallt gave to the school. Next we went to the cemetery to see where he was buried. After that we went to see where Ysgol Gymraeg used to be, and there were only 7 children there at the start. Next we went to Lle’r Ffald where they used to look after stray animals. Next to Poplar Place to see Mr and Mrs Morgan who gave us squash and explained about the area. We then went past Morris and Bates which used to be an iron foundry. We went past the old Ysgol Gymraeg, up Water Street and passed the Old Bank. We had the opportunity to go to the park and then to see the castle.

 

CELEBRATING OWAIN GLYNDŴR DAY

Year 2 pupils celebrating Owain Glyndŵr Day in the castle which was built last year.
Don't they look smart?!

 

A SNAKE IN THE RECEPTION CLASSES!

The Reception Classes had quite an unusual visitor today.
A snake!
But Oh! What a lovely snake!
The pupils had fun learning about the snake, with several being given the opportunity to stroke the snake as it slithered along the Hall.

 

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL AWARD

The beginning of the new term brought the good news that Ysgol Gymraeg had been successful in our application for the British Council’s Intermediate International School Award. The award is given to schools who make a specific attempt to incorporate international aspects into their curriculum and into pupils’ extra-curricular experiences. Our application mainly focused on the activities of our Comenius project – The Good Life – in co-operation with our six European partner schools, as well as our annual International Day. The next step will be to apply for the Full International School Award during the 2013/14 school year.
