Blwyddyn 3

Blwyddyn 3 is an thrilling year group. To kickstart our time together in Blwyddyn 3, we begin with the theme ‘Gweldydd – Countries’. We look at where we live, Cymru – Wales and compare it with other countries around the world. Children are often eager to explore countries from around the world.  

One of the most creative learning experiences in Year 3 is when we plan for our Entrepreneurship just before the Christmas holidays. We plan an ‘Apprentice’ style theme where we create products from scratch to make on mass and sell in our Christmas Fayre. This is always fun for the children and all profit made goes towards a fun trip or items for the classroom, all chosen by the children. This gives them a sense of ownership over their learning and learning environment.  

Our Physical Education sessions are on a Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child comes dressed appropriately for these sessions. During a block of the academic year, we also get to go down to Plascrug Leisure Centre to access swimming lessons. The children always enjoy this experience. You will be informed when it is our block for swimming lessons. Blwyddyn 3 also enjoy BMO coaching sessions as part of our curriculum. A timetable is released as part of the Headteacher newsletter. We always ensure there are a great deal of opportunities for Physical Education and Sport throughout our time in Blwyddyn 3. 

We have a range of ICT equipment and the children enjoy to play educational games such as, TT Rockstars, SpellingShed and Duo Lingo . Each child will be given a slip which has all of their login details to take home at the start of the academic year. 

Children are encouraged to share all of their ICT work on our TEAMS page. We also use this as a way to submit homework, or even a place for children to send in news/photos from what they have been up to over the weekend.  

One of the highlights of the year is our trip to Gwersyll yr Urdd Llangrannog! Blwyddyn 3 and 4 can enjoy the residential stay during term time! This is always a wonderful trip where we see the children develop their independence and team building skills.  

We share a great deal of our learning experiences on the school Twitter/X page - @llwynyreos  . It would be great if you could follow our page and keep up to date with what we are getting up to. 

If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate in contacting Mr Harri Horwood and Mrs Catrin Arthur.
