HALF TERM COMPETITION
Parents / Carers,
As you may be aware the curriculum for Wales is changing and from 2022 it will become statutory. Schools that are showing good practice are already preparing for the changes ahead.
There are four core purposes that underpin the new curriculum which will enable our children to become lifelong learners and responsible and caring citizens of Wales and the world. The new curriculum hopes to allow all children to become:
* Healthy, Confident Learners
* Ethical, Informed Citizens
* Enterprising, Creative Contributors and
* Ambitious, Capable Learners
This half term pupils, and staff, in Pontprennau have been focusing on becoming 'Healthy, Confident Learners'. There have been weekly assemblies taking place that have discussed various issues such as growth mindset, perseverance, what to do if you're in the 'dip', the power of the word 'YET!" and the different ways in which we learn.
We are running a competition over half term for pupils to design a logo that would encompass all of those ideas. The winning entry will become Pontprennau's logo for this core purpose and will be display in the school and classrooms to remind us all of what we are striving to achieve.
Good luck everyone!
