Reception’s Trip to Cefn Mably Farm

This week, Dosbarth Ogwr took a trip to Cefn Mably farm.

Despite the rain, they had a fabulous day! They were able to visit and pet the animals while discussing all the knowledge they have learnt over the past few weeks  in their topic ‘Do Cows Drink Milk?’

It might be raining but we’re having a great time!
We met a curious goat!
We brushed the guinea pigs!
Saying hello! to a friendly pony!

Year 3 Visit from Warburtons

We watched a video about how the bread is made from the wheat in the field to the packaged bread in the supermarket.


We then learned about the Eat Well Plate and talked about the different food groups and how much we should eat from each. We were reminded about food hygiene and all washed our hands and walked back to class with “bakers’ hands”, placing one hand on top of the other, not touching anything else.

The ladies from Warburtons, Angela and Cheryl, then put our aprons and hair nets on for us.


Then we were able to make our sandwiches. We had to include at least 2 veg.



We had a great time and we were able to take home our sandwich, a certificate and a packet of Warburtons Thins. We were also given activity booklets that were left for us to do in lessons!
