We have had a very busy first full week back in school!

Please support our school by following us on Twitter, subscribing to our Youtube channel and subscribing to our newsletter. Please see class teacher for further details.

This week saw our classes getting involved with lots of activities inside and outside of school.

Col Huw (Nursery) had a very ‘Royal Party’ to develop learning linked to our new topic ‘Did Dragons exist?’ Children also played a range of Royal games in the hall and participated in some welsh folk dancing.

Ogwr and Hensol started their new topic “will you read me a story?” They focused on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs this week and were even lucky enough to meet her!

Thaw and Fonmon began their new topic ‘Memory Box’ by welcoming a 7-week old baby and a 17-month old toddler to their class to find out about different stages of development.

Rheidol and Coch kicked off their topic by creating their own maps of their classroom. They also used online sources including google maps to find their homes and known locations.

Caernafron and Taf have been focusing their week around fractions and applying their new learning to work out fractions of amounts and fractions of a shape.

Cleddau and Penfro went on a very special trip to Bristol Aquarium to investigate as they started their new topic “Blue Abyss” They also learnt how to make cupcakes and even made a video tutorial, see our Youtube channel:

Teifi and Caerdydd introduced their topic of Beast craeator by searching the school grounds to find any bugs or creatures. They also gathered resources from the school grounds to begin the build of their own bug hotels. Reptile Dave also came to visit to show us some amazing reptiles, bugs and creatures.

Hafren and Carefilli also had a busy week by starting their topic of blood heart. They started off by asking themselves what they already knew about the heart and what they wished to find out. They then drew a picture of a heart including labelling of the heart. They were also very creative by making hearts made of Lego.
