The main focus is to teach children about the importance of happiness, health, well-being and celebrations.
In this project the children will also learn:
• How to understand and appreciate their own feelings and the feelings of others;
• How to eat healthily and how this affects your well being;
• How to keep safe and how being safe keeps us happy and well;
• How to describe emotions and feelings through drama, dance, art and music;
• About significant happy life events that are celebrated;
• How to collect information in a variety of ways, including photography, art, music, reading, ICT and writing;
• How to present information in an interesting way.

We have been finding out about Electricity this week as part of our 'Electric Rainbow' topic. We found out that electricity can come from the mains, batteries and solar power amongst other sources. There are also dangers associated with electricity - ask your child if they know any! We will finding out more about circuits next week!
We have been finding out about famous inventors, too. Ask your child why John Logie Baird was famous; what did he invent? And how about Alexander Graham Bell? They both invented things that have changed our lives!
Our Welsh skills are improving every week. We can have conversations and and ask and answer questions with real confidence.
In English we have been looking at ways to make our writing more interesting by using adjectives and connectives such as because, so, but, however etc.
We have also been busy practicing our Christmas songs for our concert. Parts/lines to learn will be coming home soon!

This week we have been developing our measuring skills using metres and centimetres. Can your child use a tape measure or ruler at home to measure items at home? Can they compare shortest and longest by finding the bigger and smaller numbers?
We have reading some books about nocturnal creatures such as owls. The children have been using the iPads to research some facts and record them. Do you know the 'proper' name for an owl's claws?!
We were lucky enough to have a visit from the Cor Meibion De Cymru. They are a fantastic male voice choir who came to perform a concert just for us. The fantastic Pencaerau School Choir also performed and were wonderful! A lovely afternoon was had by all.

We have had a busy week the 1st week back after half term!
We have written our news from half term, focusing on our spellings and our handwriting. In Language we have been using our phonic skills to build words with the digraphs ar (as in car) ow (as in cow) and ou (as in shout).
Our Maths skills are coming on well as do lots of practice of our times tables and how to use them to solve practical problems.
We did lots of practice for our class assembly on Frida, too. Thank you to all the parents who came to watch and support your children. I'm sure you will all agree it was a big success! We are all very proud of how well the children performed - acting and singing beautifully.
