Pontnewydd Primary School

Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day


Dosbarth Abertawe


The children have had an amazing half term. We have been learning lots of new and exciting things. We have now learnt about the 4 Purposes characters who will underpin everything we do this year. Healthy Harri, Ambitious Aled, Ethical Eleri and Enterprising Ellen.

In Literacy we have focused our learning around the story of 'The Little Red Hen'. We have been finding capital letters, full stops and learning about describing words that have a special name called 'Adjectives'. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning how to retell the story using Pie Corbett actions.

In Numeracy we have been working on our number formation, counting in 2s and 10s and adding two numbers together.

We have also practised lots of welsh and can ask and answer Pwy wyt ti?, Sut wyt ti? and Ble wyt ti'n byw? The children have enjoyed being chosen as Helpwr heddiws everyday.

I have been blown away by the children's attitude this term, they have all settled in so well to Year 1. After being off school during such a difficult time I am amazed at how the children have adjusted and thrown themselves back into school life. I am extremely proud of them and I am looking forward to next half term. Enjoy a lovely break. 

Da iawn Dosbarth Abertawe!


The children have settled in so well to Year 1. These past few weeks we have been focusing on Ambitious Aled, Healthy Harri and Ethical Eleri. We have talked about how we feel coming back into school and some of the changes we have had to make to our daily routine. We have set ourselves goals for the term and hope to achieve them by continuing to work hard. The children have completed some lovely work and our classroom is looking beautiful.

We are extremely proud Dosbarth Abertawe.
