Welcome to Llwyncrwn Primary School

Dosbarth Elder- Mrs Greig

Welcome to Mrs Greig's class page!


Which rock is the hardest?

Well, let’s do a ‘Scratch Test’ and find out!

Visit to Tynant Woods


What a beautiful, crisp November day we had for our walk through Tynant Woods!  We had a fantastic morning looking for evidence of the coal industry from many years ago but also learning about caring for our local environment. 

We owe Julie and Carys a massive thank you for their expertise and giving up their own time to spend with our classes.

If you go

into the woods today...

We didn't bump into any bears having a picnic but we did meet these lovely pigs!

Not everyone enjoyed the healthy farmyard smell though!


What a great start to this special Friday! 

We joined up with Mr Morgan's class to take part in the Joe Wicke's Children in Need workout. 

Not just a workout though! 

We had to answer questions in a quiz to decide on the correct move to make.

It was great fun and got us all energised for the day ahead.




Lots of interested scientists in the classroom today - using magnifiers to explore a variety of rock samples. Lots of great vocabulary to describe their properties - rough, smooth, hard, soft, crumbly, solid etc!

Well done everyone! 

The Enormous Turnip

We took advantage of a beautiful Autumn day to perform our dramatisation of The Enormous Turnip on the outdoor stage. The children really enjoyed having a go at acting for an audience. Sadly our enormous leaves didn’t survive so we had to improvise! 

What was it REALLY like to work down the mines?

Well, what better way to find out than to ask someone who actually experienced it!  Our class and Dosbarth Birch were able to do just that this week when we had a visit from John who worked at the Cwm for 30 years!  Instead of simply telling the children lots of information, he answered questions that they really wanted to know - he was very impressed by their questions, like 'Were there any insects in the mines?'  The answer was yes and mice and rats!  This is an important aspect of the new curriculum where the children decide what they would like to find out.  We all thoroughly enjoyed listening to John's fascinating insight into what it was really like!  Dioch yn fawr John!

Strictly 'Just Dancing'

Llwyncrwn Style!

We enjoyed a fun session of 'Just Dance' as a special treat.

They definitely all scored 

'more than a 3 

from Mrs G'!

Enormous Leaves?

Some of us visited the allotment this week to gather some very large leaves - in fact they were enormous!  I wonder what we are going to do with themsmiley?!?

Check back soon to see!

Exploring Beddau

As part of our topic - This is Me - we decided we would like to take a look at our local area of Beddau.  We were lucky to have a beautiful afternoon when we went for our walk.  We bumped into lots of people that we know and even got a 'toot toot' from Mr Richards in his school bus!  We made lots of careful observations which we will think about over the next few weeks.


Taking advantage of a beautiful Autumn day to explore symmetry in nature using small mirrors. Lots of observations of shape, colour changes and the beautiful moon in a clear blue sky! ‘Autumn days when the grass is jewelled…’


General Class Information

PE - Our normal PE days will be Mondays & Wednesdays.  Children should wear appropriate PE kit to school or under uniform on these days.  We will not be asking children to change into kit at the present time.  Indoor PE is usually done in bare feet.

Reading Books - The children are welcome to take their reading books home to read throughout the week.  However, books must be returned the following day as we do use them in class time.  All children will be encouraged to take their reading books home on a Friday.  This is a great opportunity for you to catch up with the progress that they are making.


Please feel free to contact me through the school office or on my Llwyncrwn email -

if you have anything you wish to discuss.


I look forward to teaching the class of 21/22 and thank you for your support.

Mrs G


Welcome to the Autumn Term in Mrs Greig's Year 3 & 4 class.

We have had a great first week and it has been a pleasure getting to know all the new year 3's.  Everyone knows their way around and they have all settled in well to the Junior Department routines. We made the most of the beautiful weather at the start of the week and explored our nature reserve.  I will update this page with class information.

Best Wishes

Mrs Greig smiley




Spring Term 2017

Happy New Year!

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

Welcome to the Spring Term in Mrs Greig's class.  Our topic for this term is 'TRIBE'.

This is a history based topic where we will be finding out about 'who lived in the Iron Age?'  We will want to find out what kind of people they were as well as discovering - when and how they lived; Celtic customs, beliefs and traditions and what happened to the Celts.  I'm sure this will be an exciting topic.  

We have already been put into Celtic Tribes!  

Ask your child what tribe he or she is in!

We also plan to go on a visit to explore real Celtic homes!

More information on that trip to follow!


Year 4 will be swimming every Thursday morning during the whole of the Spring Term, right up to the Easter Holidays.  This means we will only have one other PE session to make sure Year 3 do not miss out.  This will now be every Monday afternoon.  No kit needed on Wednesdays for the Spring Term.

Thank you Caitlin and Carys for sharing Welsh cakes for St David's Day!

PE Information

PE days are usually Monday and Wednesday.  Please ensure you bring correct kit on these days - a plain, white, round-necked T-shirt and dark (navy or black please) shorts.  Jewellery should not be worn and long hair should be tied back.  


Merry Christmas!


Science in the park!


Our topic for Summer 2016 is Gods & Mortals.  This is a topic where we will be finding out about Ancient Greece.  We will learn about myths and legends and many of the Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses. We will explore events in Ancient Greek history such as the first Olympic Games and we will find out how Ancient Greece was organised in small city-states.  We will research Sparta and Athens and find out about the Peloponnesian Wars. We will also research everyday life of the Ancient Greek people, finding out what it was like for the rich and poor.  In Art and D&T we will look at images of Ancient Greek pottery and discover if their patterns relate to myths and legends.  We also plan to create a 3D head of our own choice of god using modroc!  In Science, we will learn about the human skeleton and explore how our bodies are affected by exercise.  This will link very well with our plan for our own Mini-Olympics, later in the term.  


Here's a thought to consider!

'According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces.  Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.'









Autumn Term 2016

Welcome to Mrs Greig's class

Croeso i'r Dosbarth Mrs Greig


Welcome to the Autumn term in Class 6!  Our theme for this term is MIGHTY METALS!  The main focus of this is Science and we will be learning about materials, forces and friction.  This should be an exciting topic and we plan to start with a visit to a local playground where we will investigate the materials used and forces in action.  (We also plan to have some fun!)


Here's an interesting thought:


If you were a metal, which one would you be?  Gold, a shimmering, precious and costly mineral?  Or steel, that strong and useful alloy?  Maybe you're iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust!   

Maybe you're not a metal at all - but a force to be reckoned with!

Farewell class of 2015/2016!

A visit from an ex pupil!

Tasting Greek food

Using measuring skills to measure limbs!

Painting Greek pottery in almost Greek weather!

Spring Term 2016

We are now well into our new topic - Burps, Bottoms and Bile!  This is a voyage of discovery, investigating the busy world inside our bodies!


We have begun this topic by looking at Teeth.  Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile?  What is the effect of sugary substances on your pearly whites?  Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva!  Mmmm! And don't forget the importance of hygiene - at both ends!


Our PE times are slightly different for the Spring Term.  The Year 4 children have swimming lessons on Wednesday afternoons right up until the Easter holidays.  This means that they won't be doing PE at any other time!  However, until half-term, our class has Football on Thursday afternoons - a little bonus for the Year 4's!  The Year 3's will have PE on Wednesday afternoons after half-term.  Please remember to send in correct PE kit on the appropriate days.


May I also remind you that we do send homework home once a week at Llwyncrwn!  Please support your child's learning by encouraging them to complete this with the necessary care and attention.


Thank you for your continuing support, 

Mrs Greig.



Merry Christmas from all of Mrs Greig's Class! Ho! Ho! Ho!

Christmas Puddings to enjoy! Scrumdiddlyumptious!


Autumn Second Half Term

We have all settled in to our new class - Room 10 - in our fantastic new building.  The children have enjoyed taking 'ownership' of the amazing new facilities.


Our topic for this half term is SCRUMDIDDLYUMPTIOUS!

Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats!

Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculptor.

Find exciting recipes to read - and write your own too.

Then get busy in the kitchen making tasty dishes from across the world and discover how good food helps you grow fit and strong.

And here's food for thought - if you are what you eat ... what does that make YOU?

Welcome to the Autumn term in Class 6!  Our theme for this half term is -

I am Warrior!  The main focus of this topic is History; learning about The Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.  We will discover warring Britain and find out what the Romans did for us.  This will be an exciting topic and we will find out lots of interesting facts such as:


Scotland was not part of the Roman Empire.  Emperor Hadrian ordered a wall to be built to defend the Roman Empire against Scottish tribes.  Hadrian's Wall stretches about 73 miles from Bowness, on the west coast, to Wallsend on the east coast: you can still walk along parts of it today!

Class Timetable

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.  Please send in correct PE kit of dark shorts - navy or black, and a plain, white round neck T-shirt.  You may leave this on a peg in school until Wednesday if you wish.
