Christmas School Fair

On Saturday 15th December, a fantastic time was had by all at the school fair.

Thank you to all the PTA members and staff who attended and helped it run smoothly.

The choir opened the fair by singing beautifully and really setting the Christmassy mood.

Afterwards people enjoyed playing lots of Christmas related games, taking part in the Christmas crafts and purchasing items from the variety of stalls.

Father Christmas attended and gave out gifts to all the lucky girls and boys.

We can’t wait for the holidays to come now!

Dosbarth Rheidol Show and See

On Wednesday 5th December, Dosbarth Rheidol welcomed our families to join us for a roarsome afternoon at Show and See. This was an opportunity for us to showcase all of our fantastic learning we have done during our Beachcombers and Land Ahoy topic this term.

As always, the golden rule for Show and See afternoons is ‘all grown-ups must join in with our favourite 5-a-day routine.’ So we started the afternoon dancing and singing to  the pirate video, as we had enjoyed learning the song and dance moves to this during our topic. Our parents tried really hard to copy the moves and follow the instructions.

Then we had a chance to share our learning within our indoor and outdoor classroom, with our grown-ups.

We enjoyed programming the Beebot, making symmetrical buildings in our builder’s yard and racing our grown ups against the sand timer in our 100 square challenge.

We constructed an electric circuit and tested which materials would allow the electricity to flow through it to keep the bulb lit up. We discovered tinfoil and the fork were the best objects.

Also, we got into the Christmas spirit by writing Christmas lists to Father Christmas, creating Christmas wreaths and Christmas themed paintings using the technique we learnt this term – ‘Pointilism’

Finally, we ended our afternoon by performing our ‘Under the Sea’ dance to our grown-ups. We have worked hard on this dance during the Autumn term, learning techniques such as mirroring, shadowing and canon. We also used ribbons throughout our choreography. Check out our Twitter post for a video of our dance!
