Hedd Wyn - Rhyfel

Our Welsh poem for this half term is Hedd Wyn's 'Rhyfel'. We are going to be learning this poem throughout the term and finding out about the author and the poem's meaning. The aim is to be fluent in our oral reading of the poem by the end of term without the need of the words.

Here is the poem:

Gwae fi fy myw mewn oes mor ddreng,
A Duw ar drai ar orwel pell;
O'i ôl mae dyn, yn deyrn a gwreng,
Yn codi ei awdurdod hell. 
Pan deimlodd fyned ymaith Dduw
Cyfododd gledd i ladd ei frawd;
Mae sw^n yr ymladd ar ein clyw,
A'i gysgod ar fythynnod tlawd. 
Mae'r hen delynau genid gynt
Yng nghrog ar gangau'r helyg draw,
A gwaedd y bechgyn lond y gwynt,
A'u gwaed yn gymyg efo'r glaw.

Rugby Sessions with the WRU

Today we welcomed Dean from Pencoed Comprehensive and the WRU who held a rugby session with our Year 5/6 class. We all thoroughly enjoyed learning handling skills and can't wait for our next 3 weeks of rugby!

Welcome to a new year with Year 5/6.

This half term we will be studying the topic Fallen Fields - looking at the commemoration of the hundredth year anniversary of the start of World War One. We will be looking at the local connections with the war, the unknown soldier and the role of women during the four year war.

Our author focus is Alfred Noyes The Highwayman.

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday - Wednesday will be outdoors (shorts (or tracksuit bottoms, t-shirt and trainers) and Friday's will be indoors (shorts and t-shirts).

Homework will be put on Studyladder on Fridays and we will be updating you with our progress on @lps140club.
