NFU and the television cameras came to school!

On Thursday, 24 November 2016, the NFU accompanied by Kirsty Williams and some television cameras came to join us at school.  The NFU were launching their new education pack and some of the children in Dosbarthau Epynt and PenyFan were invited to try the resources out!  The full item can be seen on Ffermio on 12 December 2016.

Dosbarth Tryfan- Week 28th November

During the week in Literacy, we will be completing our unit of work on persuasive writing.  The children have produced some excellent pieces of role play.  The children will be using the ‘Big write’ session to write a letter to families persuading them to evacuate their children to the countryside.

In Maths, we will be completing our unit of work on data handling.  We will be calculating the mean, mode and median of data.  The children have worked hard on trying to find useful information from graphs and data in general.

The children will also be given different parts for the school Carol service that we would like them to learn.  Please can you support your children with this.

On Thursday we will be going to Newtown to see ‘Gangsta Granny’.  This should be an excellent experience for the children.  It is important that the children have a packed lunch with them.

On Thursday, 24th November 2016 PC Davies came in and talked to Tryfan about E-Safety. He showed us a video about SMART.

S stands for safety online.

M stands for meeting people online.

A stands for accepting friend requests safely.

R stands for responsibility.

T stands for tell a trusted adult.

The video was about 2 children who start playing a new game but, keep doing things wrong and Tarian tells them that their doing things wrong and they then correct them. Some of the things that they kept doing wrong were, making a week password, talking to people they didn’t know in real life, putting pictures of themselves online, sharing personal details with strangers, and inviting people to their house when they didn’t know them.

21st November -25th November Dosbarth Tryfan

Parents evenings will be taking place this week.  Please check with your child the time that you have been allocated.  If you cannot make the appointment, please get in touch with the school office and we can reschedule the time.

During this week, we will be continuing our work on persuasive writing.  We will be encouraging the children to use the ‘Big Write’ wall to help inspire their writing.  Hopefully you will hear more persuasive language being used at home.  The children have worked very hard on this so far and did some excellent presentations under pressure last week.

In maths we are going to be looking at data handling.  The children are going to be interpreting graphs and data.  They will also identify the difference between discrete and continuous data.

It is important that the children continue to read at home and your support here is greatly appreciated.

New ipads for the school!

Kirsty Williams, Welsh Government Education Secretary, visited our school to see the presentation of ipads by the construction company responsible for the houses on the site of the old Builth Wells Cottage Hospital.
