This week y6 have had LOTS of water opportunities! We went swimming in the local leisure centre and even better SURFING IN ABERAVON BEACH!! Firstly in the morning, we had heaps of fun as we played cricket, football, tennis, parachute and SAFELY rock climbing. Some pupils even collected shells for summer fair to make dream catchers!!
After all our hard work in our tests, Mrs Williams being the kind, fun person she is. We... had... a... PAAAAAARRRRRRRTTTTTTYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! We were lucky enough to watch 3 of the most recent children films. Can you guess what they were? MOANA, TROLLS AND SECRET LIFE OF PETS!! We also had treats such as biscuits,crisps and EVEN TO KWENCH OUR THIRST, KWENCHY CUPS! Also, if we didn't want to watch a movie, we could colour pokemon or my little pony sheets. Or if they were feeling adventurous we could ride bikes, play basketball or football. WELL DONE EVERYONE ON YOUR TESTS!! YOU ALL TRIED YOUR BEST!!
This week all of the school were back and everyone got the hang of getting getting up early, working hard and being friendly as usual. However, the whole school including Year 6 have been preparing for their tests which everyone will try their best at. The teachers have practising previous year test papers and making sure that they are ok with certain mathematics procedures.
The pupils have had one on one time with their class teacher. If they are confused or do not understand a certain subject in maths the teacher will dedicate a maths lesson towards that subject. Parents, carers, guardians if you have any queries about that national tests, your class teacher is open to questions. The three tests the children will have is reading, mathematics and reasoning.
On Wednesday, Year 6 went on an entertaining trip to the Swansea Grand Theatre! All the children enjoyed as it had humorous jokes, a storyline and great moments such as a dancing cat! Talk about a perfect day aye?! In the morning, we walked to our local church and sang. Why you ask? We did it to show our appreciation for Forget Me Not organisation. As we proudly sung to show our part in the community; demonstrate how much we love doing it! Also, we arrived back later from Gangsta Granny than usual as we were enjoying so much! Sorry About That!!!!!
This week Year 6 had the privilege to adventure to Llanelli bird sanctuary (the Wetlands Centre). We learnt about everything, from where certain mini beasts live to pond dipping and getting our own mini beasts to inspect and study. People found from water beatles to even leeches! Don't worry, we did put them back safely. Unfortunately, we only had 1 session to spend with a fellow worker named Sarah. She taught us all of the information and helped us throughout the time we were there. THANKS SARAH!!!
This week 4 brainiacs, Izzy, Hannah, Nick and Finlay, all participated in mind blowing comprehensive mathematics work. The event was organised by Penyrheol Comprehensive; the comprehensive all the y6 pupils will hopefully be attending in the future. Mrs Essary, who is a comp math teacher, quotes "It was a pleasure to teach these youngsters and I will hopefully be teaching them when they come up."
THIS IS WHAT WE GOT UP TO! The last slide is what EVERY SINGLE child received for taking part and trying their best.
HOW DID IT GO?
It went well; everyone participated and scored at least one each : ) Everyone was happy as they got active and exercised but people didn't complain!!!!! The teachers (Mrs Briggs, Mrs Banicau and Miss Picton) all were like head coaches to the children and thought it was amazing to see the pupils sporty side.
" Personally, I scored 6 myself, however there is no I in team," quoted Hannah. " We all tried our hardest to be the best we can be and I'm sure it paid off," proudly boasted Mrs Briggs.
There was a tense, uplifting excitement as Penyrheol Primary school prepared themselves for take off! During the lead up to March the 1st each class did a different task for welsh week (welsh themed cross stitch, baking welsh cakes and stirred up some cawl). On the day many people joined us such as police, parents, relatives, governors and local shoppers as we marched in true Welsh style to entertain the shoppers at Asda.
