Tymor Yr Hydref/Autumn Term

    This term we shall be learning all about
World War 11 and Peacetime 
     We shall be studying:
  • Countries involved in the war.
  • Our involvement in the war and it's effect on local communities.
  • Evacuation
  • The Blitz
  • Rationing
  • The end of the war and 'peace at last.'

 We shall be incorporating the Literacy and Numeracy framework into our lessons.
   Reading is something our class value very highly as we know how important it is in everything- and, of course we love it! We've added lots of new books to our book corner. Mrs Anderson is encouraging us to read newspapers and articles during our reading time. There is also lots of choice of fictional books in both Welsh and English in our book corner where we like to chill.
Andy Cope spent a lot of time with us last term on how to brilliant. We will be reading one of his Spy Dogs books in class each day.
Writing is our focus this term. We will be trying out all sorts of writing and share them with our friends and teachers.We will use VCOP to improve our writing-Vivid Vocabulary,Cool Connectives, Outstanding Openers and Perfect Punctuation. We think it will be great fun!

Our fruit Tuck Shop will continue this term.
We will be practising talking and reading in Welsh-A group of us will be encouraging everyone to speak Welsh in and around the school.
Important phrases for us to use are: Wyt ti'n barod? ...gwrando? ...mynd?...gweithio?... deall?
