Penygaer's Blog 3 (Spring Term)


ZZZZZZ…..I feel sleepy! There was a special focus upon the cornerstones theme ‘When I fall asleep’ recently when the planetarium came to visit. It was an enormous dome shape, everyone wondered what was inside. It was in fact, filled with fascinating planets and stars. The children described it as soft and squishy.



In addition, other special guests gave us a flying visit last week when the wonderful ‘Birds of Prey’ were displayed in the school hall for all to learn and see. Eight lucky children got to hold the beautiful birds and each had a picture.  



Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Recently, Every student at Penygaer participated in a wonderful Christmas Performance at Hall Street Church. The concert went splendidly well, the children extremely enjoyed.

Penygaer’s Blog 2 (Autumn Term)


Hey everyone, We’re back! This is our second blog and we will be talking about other classes cornerstones themes, and hopefully have a good insight on what they’ve been up too.


Firstly , we will talk about Nursery and Reception’s theme. Their theme was “Paw, Claws and Whiskers. They went on a trip to Folly Farm and visited all the animals and learnt how each animal moves. They also did some art on this theme. Each child drew their favourite animals. Nursery drew abstract cats, they used vibrant and fluresent colours.


Now we’ll go on too year one and two. Their theme was “Family Album.” Years one and two have taken photos with their families, and now they are beautifully displayed on the wall and also drawn pictures of their families. The children have also created family trees and a class tree, they have made cool  paper houses. Recently, Mrs Peglar has had a baby girl, and they interviewed her. These are soe of the questions they asked…… When was she born? What hospital did you go too? How many visitors came? Did she cry a lot?


Next, we’ll move onto year three and year four. Their theme was “Global Gourmet.” They have been learning about all the country’s and all the variety of  foods. The children identified the different country’s national  foods. One e.g Italians national dish is pizza and pasta.  They had terrific time. But they enjoyed making faces out of food the most. It sounds very fun!


Finally, We’ve reached year 5 and 6. As we’ve mentioned in our first blog, their theme was “Champions.” Year 5 and 6 have been doing a lot of sporting activities. They’ve recently been taking rugby lessons on a Friday afternoon, with trained pupils from Coleg Sir Gar, a team has been selected for a bowls competition in December. The classes made up their own games, and played them  joyfully.


Thank you for listening, we’ll be back in 2 weeks, Till then, bye.

Year 6 reflecting on their first half term.


Welcome to Penygaer’s blog! Within our first blog, we are going to share our thoughts relating to how we have settled into year 6, and give you a little taste of what we have been up to!


Year six’s theme has been Champions. We have been learning about the RWC. Unfortunately, Wales got eliminated in the quarter finals. We also have been on a trip to Parc Y Scarlets and interviewed Steffan Evans. Some pupils have recently done Cross Country, we all did very well. At the very start of the year, we did swimming for three weeks. After very good progress, we did a competition, sharks against dolphins. We are currently training for bowls, In the Selwyn Samuel Center. In a couple of weeks we will be be going up against Pentip in a match.


Year 6 have been attending quite a few after school clubs. There has been new clubs such as SAS and Gymnastics. There is also choir, Netball, Football and Rugby. In gymnastics there’s also an upcoming competition in November.


Year 6 have settled well into their new classroom.  We are  extremely  happy that we are having Mrs William’s again. We also have a new TA, Mr Naylor, he’s very kind and helpful. We are having  fun and educated lessons.


Here’s some pupils opinions of year six              


Jac- "It has been amazing so far!!"

Keira- "It is fantastic in year six!"

Aliesha- "The lessons are much harder."

Alana- "It’s been the best so far!"

Lily-   "Out of all the classes, it has been the best!"
