Welcome back to the spring term! Our new topic is Urban Pioneers and it involves looking at the local area in which the children live in. The children will be learning about the history of Trealaw so if you have any materials at home related to Trealaw in the past we would love to see them!
Thank you to all of Dosbarth 4 parents who came in and helped us learn about the sugar contents of drinks to make sure we keep our teeth healthy! We found out that orange juice has only got a little bit more sugar than coke. And one bottle of 500ml has more than your recommended daily allowance.
Be smart, look after your teeth - reduce your sugar intake and drink through a straw!
Remember daily allowance is:
19g, that’s 5 sugar cubes for 4-6 year olds, 7 to 10 year olds: 24g, that’s 6 sugar cubes and 11 years old or older: 30g, that’s 7 sugar cubes.

We will learn all about the Celts and go on a trip to St.Fagans to see the round houses and try on Celtic outfits.
this link will help you learn more about the celts.
here you can play Celtic games.
This term our topic has been a yummy journey of discovery! 'Here's food for thought - if you are what you eat... what does that make YOU?'
We are having a absolutely amazing time in the glorious sunshine! We have been so lucky with the weather. The children have thoroughly enjoyed every activity and there are smiles all around.
We have a day of water sports ahead, so the sunshine is much appreciated!
we have not been able to post any pictures or messages up until now because of the lack of wifi and service problems.
Enjoy the rest of the peace, your little darlings will be back with a vengeance tomorrow. Pictures to swiftly follow.

Our topic this term is Voices of the Rhondda. Your children have produced some fantastic literature about our beautiful valley and our heritage. Our fabulous work has come in the form of poetry, diaries, descriptive writing and biographies. We have also had the pleasure of visiting the Rhondda Heritage Park to experience the gruelling life of a miner. It was really informative!
We are also studying the work of Valerie Ganz, an artist who became passionate about the plight of the Rhondda miners. It would be lovely if you can have a look at some of her work on the internet or in the library and produce some art work at home with your child and they can share it with their classmates!
If you are as passionate about our valley as we are, could you share with your children a story, a song, a piece of art or poem about the Rhondda Valley that they can share with the class this term.
