Welcome back to the summer term!
Welcome back to the summer term! What a very strange year it's been once again. Hopefully we can look forward to a more stable term and end of the school year!
The children in Dosbarth Cherry have worked extremely hard during home learning and we are all very pleased to be back in school full time.
Our topic for this half term will be PESKY PIRATES! "Aarrr, me hearties!" So let's buckle up for some swashbuckling adventures of the high seas!
Who were pirates? Daring figures who swooped on treasure ships and returned home with golden cargoes? Brutal sea-thieves who showed no mercy to their victims? Bold adventurers who paid for travel by theft at sea? In fact, pirates were ALL these things and more!! For centuries, pirates have sailed across the seas and oceans of the world. Some groups of pirates have been called by different names, such as Corsairs, and most have terrorized certain areas like the pirates of the Caribbean.
Did you know that the Welshman Bartholomew Roberts (also known as Black Bart / Barti Ddu ) was one of the most successful pirates of all time? He captured over 400 ships!!
So jump aboard me hearties and enjoy a term on the seas and oceans exploring the lives of Pesky Pirates!
The children were very lucky to have a virtual workshop provided by Renishaw, learning how 3D printing works. They designed their own 3D fridge magnets using computer software, and will be receiving the printed versions later this month!
Throwing some shapes during our Dance-a-thon!
During outdoor learning week the children enjoyed using our fabulous grounds to find appropriate materials to make a pirate ship and a parrot! They worked together has a team, improving cooperation and communication skills, as well as practical skills.
Welcome back from half term!
I hope you all had a good rest away from your screens over half term and are now ready to start back online learning. We will be continuing with our main theme of "Gigantic Journeys" although we will now be moving on to the Ice Age and Stone Age.
Spring Term 2021
Unfortunately, we are not going to be together in class for the time being, and will be doing our online learning on Google Classroom.
Literacy, Maths and topic work will be set daily and will begin on Wednesday, January 6th. Work can be completed on Google Docs/Slides and shared on the drive/turned in on Google Classroom. Alternatively, work can be done on paper and brought in when pupils return to school. It is important that all children engage with online learning as much as possible while we are away from school, keep reading regularly and make a big effort to learn their times tables! Online games like Hit The Button (Top Marks) can really help with this.
Our school topic this term is Gigantic Journeys and our class will take a huge leap back in time to the exciting "Age of the dinosaurs". We will become expert Palaeontologists (studying life forms from previous historic eras and fossils) and will learn about the fascinating prehistoric creatures that once inhabited the Earth.
We value the pupils' thoughts and ideas when planning our lessons, so if you have any ideas for activities you would like to carry out in this topic let me know by email on email@example.com or comments on Google Classroom. 👍
Extra Useful Info:
P.E. - Tuesday.
Pupils are not currently able to bring P.E. kit into school, but we encourage them to wear appropriate sports kit to school on a Thursday. Our lessons will be outside when the weather permits, so please ensure your child is wearing trainers and joggers/leggings.
Pupils are encouraged to take reading books home daily to read to a parent or guardian. Regular reading improves vocabulary and language skills, helps to improve concentration and also teaches children about the world around them. Please take 5 mins to listen to your child read whenever you can. It really will make a difference

Dear parents and pupils,
I hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. This is an unusual start to the term, where we are all working from home and not able to be together in the classroom. Lots of you have already emailed me to say how much you're missing being in school and seeing and playing with your friends. Hopefully it won't be too long before Llwyncrwn is yet again filled with children's laughter and it is safe for us to be back learning with our friends. In the meantime, the most important thing for us is to remain safe and healthy.
Teachers have been busy setting Numeracy, Literacy and topic tasks for you to do on Google Classroom. Please make sure that you have joined your correct Maths, English and topic group in order for you to see what work has been set. There are daily Maths and English tasks and additional topic tasks for you to complete / research. Don't worry if you don't complete every task, but try to complete at least part of the English and Maths tasks each day. It will help you keep on top of things until we get back to school. Keeping up with your reading is really important too, and there are a lot of free reading books that you can download online. Of course there's always those times tables to learn if you find yourself with some spare time on your hands!!!!!!
I am missing you all, and look forward to seeing you back at Llwyncrwn when it is safe to do so. Keep communicating with me on Google Classroom or email me on email@example.com if you need any help at all, or just want to tell me your latest news while we are all working from home.
Take care, lots of love Miss Davies xxx
