Croeso! Mrs Jones and Ms Bond welcome you to the Blwydden 3 page of our website! Here you will be able to find out all about what we are doing in Blwydden 3 throughout the year. First of all we would like to tell you that we have new classroom names. Pupils chose to have a woodland theme for our classroom name so we are so pleased to present the page for Dosbarth Gwdihw (Owl Class - Mrs Jones) and Dosbarth Twrch Daear (Mole Class - Ms Bond). We've got loads of exciting things planned; for example this Autumn Term we are going to visit the RNLI Centre in Barry Island which links in to our project of Time Travellers - The Titanic. Keep checking back regularly for updates both from the teachers but also from our wonderful pupils! Diolch yn fawr!

Our visit to the RNLI - Barry Island
On Friday we visited the RNLI Centre. Stuart and Phil were so accommodating to us because the weather was so bad! It was pouring down! Bobl bach!
We learnt all about how to understand the different flags that we may see at the beach and what they mean, we learnt how to remain safe in the water and what to do if we get into difficulty and we watched films of the RNLI in action. We were able to role-play on one of the real life Life Boats and dress up as a coastguard. It was so informative and lots of fun!
Titanic Immersion Day
To kick start our new project about the Titanic, Blwydden 3 took part in an immersion day on Thursday 19th September. In the morning, we worked together to make cucumber flavoured sandwiches and beef paste flavoured sandwiches. We also baked and decorated cakes.
In the afternoon, 48 boarding passes for the Titanic were placed into a hat. We had to pull out a ticket, crossing our fingers that we pulled out a First Class Ticket! We then had to line up ready to board the Titanic. Mrs Jones was even dressed as the Captain! We then had to show our boarding passes to The Captain, Ms Bond and Mrs Lavelle. Once we showed our boarding pass we were shown to our places. First Class passengers were called Lady and Gentleman and were treated with great politeness. We got to sit at the red tables where there were delicious cucumber sandwiches, "red wine" and cupcakes. Second Class passengers were sent to the white tables where we were greeted by paste sandwiches, squash and cupcakes. The Third Class passengers were not treated with politeness. We had to have our finger nails and hair checked and were told to sit and wait at the benches until all the First and Second class passengers were waited upon. We were then given crackers and water.
Luckily for us, this was all part of the plan by Mrs Jones and Ms Bond to help us understand how differently the Third Class passengers were treated on the Titanic and to know that there were not enough lifeboats to save them when the Titanic hit tragedy. We were so pleased to see them come out with a choice of cucumber and paste sandwiches for us along with squash and cupcakes, just like the others, at the end of the lesson. Even though the Third Class passengers felt sad at first, we all learnt a very valuable lesson about the class system.
Have a look at some of the photos below to see what amazing things we have done so far!
