We are about to start our Summer Term. We are going to be studying the topic 'What a Wonderful World' which has a geography focus. We will be looking at the 7 ancient wonders of the world, the 7 new wonders and researching ideas of what they consider their own wonders to be. We will be using art, design technology, geography and history skills and the topic will culminate in pupils working in groups to promote their Welsh Wonders to make the '7 Wonders of Wales'. We hope that the pupils will be able to present these wonders in a class assembly.
Our literacy focus will be on Morris Gleitzman's Toad Away. Here is a free version of the first chapter. HERE
Our PE days are going to be Monday and Tuesday. On Monday's we will be swimming in Llantrisant Leisure Centre. Boys will need swimming trunks (not shorts) and hats are recommended, girls will need one piece swim suits and swimming hats. We advise all pupil to have goggles. On Tuesday's we will be having hockey lessons from Hockey Wales and football lessons from Cardiff City for the first few weeks of term and we will change gear to athletics as we get closer to sports day at the end of term.
