Mantle commission work for 'The Age of Princes'

In Aderyn Du this week we have been working in groups on a Mantle commission about ‘The Age of Princes’!  Each group has designed a coat of arms as part of their work.  Below are the winning designs for each group!  The children thought hard about which colours, animals and patterns to use, explaining why they had chosen them e.g. red for blood, green for envy, pink for love, an eagle for flying high above other armies, a snake to represent a battle etc

Banner style vote!

Powys County Council wants to tell you when there are exciting changes to our schools. To do this, they want to find out which of their banners you like the best. Once everyone has voted, they will add up all the votes and see which one children like the best. They will then use this style when they have something to tell, or ask you.

Please copy and paste the link below into the bar where you usually type a web address, this will take you to a short Powys survey about your preferred style of banner.

Literacy - Explanation texts about Elan Valley

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve all been enjoying the sunshine.

Here’s the literacy for this week. You will be researching and developing skills in order to write an explanation text next week. For this week you need to do lots of research using the Elan Valley website but if you can’t assess this for whatever reason I have copied the relevant pages and attached them below.

From this week if you have any questions or problems on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays could you please contact Mrs. Watts between 8am and 4pm through Teams, email or messenger and she will answer these as soon as she can as Mrs. Rimmer will be in school, thank you.
