Year 8’s Trip to Cardiff Bay

This term, “Wales” is the theme of year 8’s Welsh lessons. So, once again this year, 50 pupils went on a trip to Cardiff Bay on Friday, 16 June. They had the opportunity to enjoy a tour around the Millennium Stadium and the Welsh Assembly. Without forgetting, of course, enjoying lunch and delicious ice cream in the Bay before returning to school.

Hay Fever

On Friday, May 26th a group of culture-hungry year 9 students visited the Hay Festival of Literature and Arts in Powys.  Highlights included an audience with acclaimed teen-fiction writer Ali Sparkes and listening to the entertaining tales of writers Daniel Morden and Phil Earle. Students also enjoyed the chance to question these authors on their craft and revelled in the opportunity to sample some delicious festival food. An enjoyable day for all involved! Many thanks to Mrs Victoria Jones for coordinating the visit and Mr Ray Thomas for accompanying the excursion.

ESU Training Day

Everybody here at Bryn Tawe would like to thank the ESU for their wonderfully inspiring training day with our year 8 pupils. The workshop was a fascinating insight into the skills required for developing confidence when speaking in public. We look forward to more success in the ESU competitions next year.

 

These are some of the comments from our enthused students:

 

‘I loved doing the Braveheart speech-it raised my confidence and was fun’ Scott Williams

‘I enjoyed the fact that none of us were confident at the start of the day, but by the end everybody’s confidence had lifted’ Lauren Miller

‘I really enjoyed the way that we were persuaded to speak in public and that we were encouraged to carry on, even if we made a mistake or felt nervous’ Anwen Morgan

‘I loved the fact that Julia completely understood the difficulties of speaking in public, allowing us to just state our ideas, not perform’ Ffion Tomos

‘The highlight for me was being a questioner. I think I might have a go at the real thing! A great day overall ‘ Jack Thomas
