Approximately 10 million turkeys are sold at Christmas every year!
This week parents, families and friends have enjoyed Year 6's performances of our festive Christmas musical - 'Cinderella Rockafella' based on the fairy tale Cinderella. After weeks of learning lines, rehearsals, singing and dancing, the curtain rose on our fun-packed show. Llawer o hwyl! Everyone involved worked so hard to ensure that the audiences enjoyed an exciting, lively Christmas treat. Rydych chi wedi gweithio yn galed iawn.We are all extremely proud of you.
Laughter filled the school hall as Rockafella (with some help along the way) went in search of the Cinders, the girl of his dreams. The stage was filled with two very ugly sisters, rock stars, animals, fairies and a witch; not forgetting a certain dog called Teaser. The smiles on the audience’s faces and their warm applause showed how much they enjoyed the production. Many of them commented on the “fantastic acting and singing” of the children. One of the audience said, “I haven’t laughed so much for ages!”
Thanks again to parents and friends for their support in helping us learn our lines and for organising our costumes. Diolch yn fawr iawn. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Nadolig llawen a blwyddyn newydd dda i chi gyd.
December 10th - Rhagfyr 10fed -Day 10
Royal Mail deliver around 150 million cards and packages during the Christmas period. If all the Christmas cards were laid end to end, they would stretch from London to Sydney and back again five times.
This term our topic in Welsh has been 'Gwyliau' - 'Holidays'. As the weeks have gone by, we have been working hard at learning how to talk and write in Welsh about where we have been on holiday. We have, for example, learnt how to explain where we went, when we went, who we went with, how we travelled, how long we stayed for and what we did on our holidays. Earlier in the term we wrote our own Welsh postcards using a writing frame and example postcards to help us. As part of an assessment, though, we had to write our very own Welsh postcards with no help at all!: no Welsh words written on the board to guide us and no examples to look at. It was quite challenging but we did it really well! We are great Welsh writers! Ysgrifenwyr Cymraeg gwych ydyn ni! We hope you enjoy looking at and reading a selection of our Welsh postcards. Mwynheuwch darllen ein cardiau post.
What book are you reading at the moment? Pa lyfr wyt ti'n darllen ar hyn o bryd? Mr. Evans and his daughter Kate are enjoying reading the book 'Gangsta Granny' by David Walliams. So far we have laughed out loud at least fifteen times! Mae'r stori yn ddoniol iawn! Without giving too much away, the book tells the story of Ben, a young boy whose discovers that his granny is a jewel thief! Fed up of being neglected by his ballroom-dancing obsessed parents, Ben is soon drawing up a master plan for him and Granny to steal the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London! What books are you enjoying at the moment? Pa lyfrau wyt ti'n mwynhau ar hyn o bryd? Let us know by posting a comment below. Tell us what book you are reading and a little bit about it (without giving too much away!).

Final rehearsals are underway for Year 6's exciting Christmas musical - 'Cinderella Rockafella' a pantomime-style musical based on the fairytale 'Cinderella'! Wigs, ballgowns and face paint! You can't move upstairs in Year 6 for ugly sisters, rock stars, animals, fairies and a witch; not forgetting a certain dog called Teaser. After weeks of learning lines, rehearsals, singing and dancing, we are almost ready. Bron yn barod. Everyone involved has been working so hard to ensure that next week parents, friends and family will enjoy a fun, lively Christmas treat.
Without giving too much away, our show tells the story of Rockafella who is fed up with his life of celebrity and (with some help along the way) goes in search of his true love - Cinderella. He doesn't count, though, on the wicked Fairy Nastyboots who tries everything in her power to spoil the happy ending! Thanks to parents and friends for your support in helping us learn our lines and for organising our costumes. Diolch yn fawr iawn. We look forward to seeing you at our performances next week.
