Beth ydym ni'n dysgu? What are we learning about?
This term our topic is called 'How did people survive during WW2?'. We will be looking at famous and influential people and their impact on the world. We will be looking further into Hitler's reign of power across the world. We will also be looking at what caused WW2 and how people survived throughout this significant event.
Languages, Literacy, and Communication
During literacy, we will continue to read the text 'Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.' We will progress with our writing by retelling a chapter in our own words using Talk4Writing as well as creating a character description linked to one of the main characters Kensuke. Each day, we will read a chapter and discuss the key events and key themes throughout the book. This will allow us to continuously act out specific roles and allow us to have in-depth discussions into what might happen next. We will also be using the text to create our own dictionaries with definitions for the words that we do not understand.
In Welsh, we will be learning how to pronounce school subjects in Welsh and use sentence patterns to describe how we feel about these subjects. We will also look at different sports and play a variety of games to ensure that we consolidate the vocabulary whilst being able to use it in extended sentences.
Mathematics and Numeracy
During numeracy, we are going to be looking at fractions of both shape and number. We are also going to be looking for opportunities to use these skills through real-life problems. This term we will also be looking at decimal numbers and time, and applying them both throughout our project.
Through our projects, we will be developing these skills in fun and creative ways, while also looking at the areas of learning.
This term, we will be having Upbeat with us to help us create and perform a 'Samba' piece. This will be developed over a 6 week period and once the children have mastered this we will invite parents to watch their performance via either 'Teams or Google Meets.'
We have a very exciting term ahead of us and I look forward to seeing you all!
I hope you all had a lovely Easter break!

This next project that we will be completing is - 'A Christmas Project'. The pupils will be focusing on becoming enterprising and creative contributors. They will need to be ethically informed, as well as being ambitious. The children will be finding out the skills to connect and apply their knowledge and skills to create ideas and products. They will also develop their ability to express their ideas in a co-operative manner. Through a variety of lessons, working on a number of objectives, they will then use their skills to create their own Christmas Performance based on a German Christmas.
We will be recording our Christmas performance on the 9th December so don't forget to wear your Christmas jumpers or traditional German inspired clothes, if you have any at home!
