Year 3


It’s goodbye to being an infant and hello to being a junior! It’s goodbye to pencils and hello to writing in pen! It’s goodbye to printing and hello to a new type of handwriting-joined up writing! It’s goodbye to stickers and hello to starting to earn housepoints. There are four houses Briwnant (yellow), Deri (blue), Nofydd (green) and Wenallt (red). All the house points you earn count towards the house point assemblies we have.

You’ll also enjoy the excitement on Dydd Gwyl Dewi. Go wild when showing off your talents in the junior Eisteddfod. Win rosettes, try your best and help your house to win!

Sports day gets more exciting every year and in the juniors you get to go to the National Indoor Athletics Centre at NIAC and run on the proper running track. It’s not just running, there are great activities throwing the javelin, hurdles, obstacle races and lots more.
