Have a lovely half-term holiday J11. Fwynheuwch eich gwyliau hanner tymor. Are any of you going anywhere nice? Thank you for all your hard work so far this term. Diolch am eich gwaith caled iawn yn ystod y tymor. I'll look forward to seeing you after half term. Keep safe and well. Remember, you return to school on Monday 31st October - Halloween!
In class, we have been studying 'The Blitz' of World War Two in our History/topic lessons, focusing on the bombing raids over Swansea. We have looked at photographs of the damage caused by bombing raids over our cities and listened to sound clips such as air raid sirens and bombs being dropped by the Luftwaffe. With a partner, we have written 'Echo Poems' to build up imagery of 'The Swansea Blitz', aiming to capture the sights, sounds and smells of the 'Blitzkreig' for the reader. We hope you enjoy reading our 'Echo Poems' where the last word of each line is echoed by the first word of the next.
We have produced some mindmaps of key facts we found out about the Swansea Blitz. Here is a selection of them. We hope you enjoy looking at them.
