Class 9

Croeso i dosbarth naw! 


Welcome back to the start of a new term, we hope that all pupils had a well deserved break for the Easter period.


To start the term, the pupils will be taking part in a mini ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ project where the pupils will be:

· Writing an alternative version of the fairy tale

· Learning about castles in Wales and their place in History

· Looking at seeds, plants and life cycles

· Asking ethical questions

· Presenting and comparing data


This work is part of a transition project with other schools in our cluster.  



 For the remainder of the term, our topic is ‘Around the World’  where we will be looking at comparing places and cultures, land use, and food in Wales and the wider world. As part of this topic, we will be focussing on the four purposes within the new curriculum, and exploring the six areas of learning and experiences including:

· Health and Wellbeing

· Languages, Literacy and Communication

· Mathematics and Numeracy

· Science and Technology

· Expressive Arts 

· Humanities.
