Eirlys, a writer and illustrator visited our school today. She read us her book and shared with us her love of the environment and how she is inspired by the beauty around us. We drew some pictures based on the illustrations in her beautiful book.
Today the PDSA lady came to our school and told us about being a vet and looking after animals and keeping them clean and healthy. She brought in a stuffed dog and showed us the different body parts and organs, she also taught us how to know whether our dogs are happy and healthy or not.
She made a slide show which told us which foods they can eat and what foods they can't eat. She told us that Guinea pigs are meant to eat a pile of hay that's the same as their body and the orange bit of the carrot is very sugary and fattening and they shouldn't have too much of it. The green leafy part of the carrot is very healthy for them though!
She showed us the PDSA advert. In the advert it showed pets with their owners, how animals and humans have a special bond which lasts forever and how the PDSA will always be there to help you and your pet through rough times.
Here are the five things that all need:

We had a belated World Book Day because year 5 were in Borfa House. Most of us are in costume. They put a lot of effort into making the costumes.
On Wednesday the 2nd March me and a section of the class went to Coed Gwilym park to run. It wasn't the best weather in the world but it still wasn't cancelled so we ran two laps of the park in pouring down rain. It was freezing cold but at the same time it was so much Fun. Most people however, were not happy at all. Me and my mum went as soon as possible because it was so cold, but some stayed. I had a lovely warm bath and went to bed.
Today a group of Y6 went over to Birchgrove comprehensive school to compete in a tag rugby festival for Welsh Week. There were six schools and most of them were split into two groups, group A and B. We also made up a chant that was judged at the end.
We were very happy as all of us had a medal. The festival was really fun and we hope they will invite us to another one.

Pupils from year 5 and 6 took part in an athletics competition at Ashley Road indoor athletics track.
After a very tight competition Clydach finished third, two points behind first place.
There will be an outdoor competition next month giving the team a chance to top the group.
Good luck for next month everybody.
Year 6 class in Clydach Primary School. There are 18 girls and 13 boys.
