Workshop with Huw Aron

A group of boys from Yr 7 and 8 had an opportunity to experience a workshop with the author and artist Huw Aaron on Friday 3/3/17. Huw Aaron is the creator of the cartoon magazine Mellten and the pupils were delighted to read the magazine and then create their own cartoon characters and short stories.

Morgan Greenway was one of the boys who took part in the workshop, “I learnt how to create interesting cartoons to help children to enjoy reading. We learnt how to show positive and negative emotions. Thanks very much to Huw Aaron for coming to us.”

World Book Day 2017

We celebrated World Book Day once again this year with a variety of activities. The celebrations began with the World Book Day Service. The sixth form led the service and showed a DVD that had been created over recent weeks of members of the sixth form and staff discussing what they are currently reading. It was wonderful to see that a group of school staff and pupils had shown considerable imagination dressing up as characters from books.

At the end of every lesson during the day, an adaption of a short story was read over the tannoy, with Mr Davies, Mr Jenkins and Mrs Edwards-Jones displaying great acting skills! Everyone had heard the whole story by the end of the day.

During break time, a coffee morning was held and Siop Tŷ Tawe came to sell various books.

A group from Yr 13 who are studying Welsh went to perform the tale of Branwen for the children of Ysgol Felindre. Very original props were used!

A group from Yr 9 had an opportunity to read with Tirdeunaw, Lôn-las and Gellionnen schools. 5 stories were read to the children in turn and the children voted for their favourite book.

Hopefully, everyone was reminded of the enjoyment provided by reading books.
