    Literacy and Numeracy across the curriculum.

    We have been making and using QR codes to find out which meal is the healthiest.

    Using a Raspberry Pi computer.

    We have been busy learning how to use network commands: PING IPCONFIG TRACEROUTE.

    We been using these commands to see how data is sent all around the world on different servers that make up a computer network. We used the website


    We have been learning how to use a Raspberry Pi computer, we traced how it connects to the school network using an Ethernet cable, a switch, a router and a sever.



    Mabinogion Workshop

    We have be learning to recreate the structure of the story through tableaux, mime, role play and narration. To recreate one part of the story in Welsh. To add percussion and sound effects to the performance to add tension and atmosphere. 


    The Mabinogion is a collection of eleven prose stories from medieval Welsh manuscripts. They draw on pre-Christian Celtic mythology, international folktale motifs, and on early medieval historical traditions. While some details may hark back to older Iron Age traditions, each of these tales is the product of a highly developed Welsh narrative tradition, both oral and written. They were first translated into English by Lady Charlotte Guest in the mid-19th century.

    We have been learning how a computer network works.

    In our computing lesson, we simulated how a computer sends data across a computer network. We learnt how each computer has an address called an IP address.

    We are using thinking maps to identify positive and negative aspects of Gabalfa

    We really enjoy working in teams. We get to teach each other, when we need help. We share our ideas. By the end of the lesson we all know we are successful
    We have started our new context for learning in class. We are learning to become emergency disaster monitors. To be able to do this we have to acquire new skills. The first skill we have learnt, is to measure and collect data about the weather. We were also able to use our welsh and ICT skills in our lesson.
    Year 3 have been on an educational visit to St Fagans this week! We walked around the St Fagans' site, saw lots of different animals and learnt about how Celtic people lived. We even helped make the wall of a round house....which was a bit messy and muddy! We also learnt how to throw javelins and spears, just like real Celtic warriors!

    We’ve been looking carefully at a map of the Roman Empire to understand how much land the Romans acquired over time. We used our historical knowledge and understanding to come up with reasons why the Romans invaded certain areas across Europe at the times that they did.

    Did you know that the Romans didn’t manage to conquer the whole of Britain?




    In Maths we are using our knowledge of multiplication and division facts for the 5, 10, 2, 4 and 3 times-tables to solve problems.
