We had a lovely time at St Fagans this week.  The children were given the experience of a ‘Victorian school’.  It was quite scary.  I think they all agreed that they preferred school nowadays!

Next week we have a lady coming in from the council to show us some artefacts and documents about Swansea in Victorian times.  this will be an excellent opportunity for the children to look at lots of historical sources.

We have been informed that the Musical Extravaganza on Tuesday 9th October has a ‘pirate’ theme.  The children will be able to dress up as pirates if they wish.  I suggest the children bring a change of clothes in and change in school. It’s entirely optional if the children wish to dress up. PLEASE do not buy anything just for this event.

Also don’t forget to check out our Twitter feed where we do our best to show you what the children have been doing.

Home Learning will take a new format this year;

A menu of SIX tasks will be given to each pupil and they will have a choice which activity they complete over each two week period. By the end of the term they will be expected to have completed all six tasks in full and their work will be shared and celebrated within the classroom each fortnight. There will also be a class tick sheet on the wall so I can keep a track of who has done what and pupils will be able to see what they still have left to complete.
