National Reading and Numeracy Tests

Dear Parents/Carers


The National Tests for pupils in Y2-6 will be carried out between 3– 10th May 2016 in accordance with national guidance. National guidance has also allowed for the disapplication of pupils who are not yet ready, developmentally, to sit such tests.


Please could you ensure that all pupils are in school and that they arrive as promptly as possible for the start of each session. There is no additional specific requirement for parents to revise for these tests with their children.


Further information about the tests, including sample papers can be found on the Learning Wales website:

Minecraft Comes to Pwll School  

This June (2015), Minecraft comes to Pwll School.  The school are currently the only school in Carmarthenshire to install Minecraftedu on computers in the junior classes.
Minecraftedu is a Minecraft teaching platform - a specially designed version of Minecraft where teachers can run carefully pre-designed Minecraft worlds to help pupils develop new skills.  It naturally lends itself to work in art, science and mathematics and of course presents a highly motivating range of opportunities to develop social and collaborative skills.  I am so excited about getting started with Minecraft in the classroom and seeing where it will take us this year!


March 2016 update-

Since launching Minecraft edu, we have used Minecraft to teach the following topics:


Personal and social skills / community

Tudor houses

Celtic villages


Roller coasters



3D Logo Turtles (programming)

Problem solving

Settlements (Geography)


Minecraft also serves as a constant tool for the learning of social / behaviour rules and skills with pupils.  The rules which apply to living and working in a school community also apply fully to any Minecraft community we are working in.
