Cwtch Gwilym

Welcome to Cwtch Gwilym. 

This term our context is 'We can all be heroes' Any home learning completed on paper for this cwtch can be emailed to our family email:


Our value this half term is compassion. However, we will be looking at a variety of values within our R.E lessons while learning about the parables of Jesus. We are learning about the way we all can become heroes in real life by displaying these values. We will be using this knowledge in our literacy work where we are developing important skills while working towards writing an advert for friend.


In numeracy we are looking at fractions of shape and number. We are also looking for opportunities to use these skills in real life through writing recipes and calculating costs. 


Through our projects we will be developing these skills in fun and creative ways while also looking at other areas of learning. 


We are currently reading The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.

In guided group reading we have been reading about the adventures of kid spies Polly and Pete. We are looking forward to writing our own adventure in literacy.

The children thought of some exciting new ways to practise their spellings this week. They all worked really hard on a booklet full of all their ideas.

We practise our spelling and phonics daily as a class. However, on ‘Wordy Wednesday’ we start our day practising our weekly spellings independently.

The children are really enjoying getting creative and practising their words in their own way.

We really enjoyed spending the last day of term celebrating our success while wearing bright colours. We ended the day creating our own rainbow links full of examples of friendship and kindness in Cwtch Gwilym. We then connected them together to show how strong we are as a caring and supporting class. Have a lovely half term. :)

Congratulations to our stars. 9.10.20

A real love of literature building in Cwtch Gwilym during our free reading time.

Mindfulness, yoga and a squat challenge.

We love getting arty with our spelling practise.

Predicting what will happen when two equally balanced balloons are placed on a scale and one is popped.

Practising our Welsh skills interviewing our friends about their likes and dislikes.

We ended the week looking at some of the fantastic home learning we had done on international languages. Maharshi and Stas prepared some fantastic work at home to help us celebrate and offered to present it to the class. Maharshi proudly shared some stories with us and taught us how to count to ten in Indian. Stas then spoke to us about some of the different sounds in the polish language and taught us the names of some animals. Fantastic end to the week.

Congratulations to our stars. 2.10.20

Using connectives to help us order explanations.

Some very impressive concentration during this week’s big maths sessions.

Does gas way anything? In our science lessons this week have looked at how we can compare the amount of gas in carbonated drinks by weighing them before and after they are shaken until flat. We looked at how we could create a fair test and predicted what we thought would happen with our talk partners. We used IT to record our results in a table and compared the difference in weight with a variety of drinks.

Lunchtime picnics.

This week, we have been looking at place value in numeracy looking at different ways we can represent numbers. In literacy, we have been sorting past and present tense verbs and using them to create sentences. This is going to help us write our explanations in science where we are looking at the water cycle. In Welsh, we have been discussing the weather and have been writing sentences and conversations to describe the weather on previous days using the past tense.

Congratulations to our stars. 28.9.20

Exploring viscoelastic solids. (Making play-dough).

We had lots of fun making play-dough. We looked at the different properties of each of the ingredients and discussed if we think play-dough is a solid or a liquid as we watched the ingredients come together. Here is the recipe we followed if you want to recreate the fun at home.

It has been great to spend some time outdoors in the sunshine.

Getting to know our new classmates with a game of 'The sun shines on you'.

We spent day one catching up, writing about our Summer and using HWB to input data we gathered playing games.

Welcome back photos :)

Year Three had a wonderful first day in KS2.
