Castell Cas-Gwent

We have had a lovely first half term getting to know each other in class. We have welcomed some new faces to our class and they have all settled in wonderfully!

Our first topic has been all about the Tudors and Stuarts. We have learned lots about King Henry VIII, The Great Fire of London and daily life during these times. It was thoroughly enjoyable to create our news reports on the Great Fire of London using the Green Screen technology and iPads – a great effort and enthusiasm shown by all.

Mathematics & Numeracy
In Maths, we have learned all about time, data, area, perimeter and number work. Children have worked so hard and have been enthusiastic about learning about the Singapore Maths style using bar models – we will continue to use these throughout the year to develop our written methods.

A great commitment has been shown by all children in regard to our swimming lessons! A big thank you to parents/guardians for ensuring that children have the correct kit/equipment and bus money each week.
