Today pupils and staff in Year One and Two had a fantastic day with Jim (Creative Schools), developing their animation skills through the use of the app imotion. The children worked in groups to create animations of animals from specific habitats. Pupils produced their own backgrounds and then created their own animations. Their animations can be viewed in their shared files of their Hwb accounts.
Another fantastic day with Jim and Ruth! Today the children started making models using plasticine and Jim showed the children different techniques to create their models ready for animation. We then went outside with Ruth and started to create a den which we are going to use for our kingdom. We used big branches from trees and string to construct the den, great fun!
Brilliant day, even if it was slightly chilly outside! 🙂
What a magical afternoon for the Foundation Phase children today! All the children have been so good this year that Santa dropped by to ask everyone what they wanted for Christmas this year. The children were so excited. One child said “I know it’s the real Santa because I heard the bang on the school roof when the sleigh landed.” Truly magical!
On Thursday 9th November, we hosted the Cluster Cross-Country event.
We had nearly 30 pupils competing against pupils from Presteigne and Radnor Valley and primary schools.
We are very proud of our competitors, they all performed brillianty and showed sportsmanship but we must give our congratulations to our girls who won their races.
Party time…! Thank you to FOS for helping!
Have a spooky but safe half-term holiday!
What an amazing day! The children were so excited to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world through four very exciting and different scientific challenges.
The pupils explored electricity through making circuits that made bulbs glow and buzzers buzz.
Volcanoes erupted in the classroom through mixing different materials together.
The children loved seeing forces at work by dropping materials off the pirate ship and timing how quickly they fell.
Pupils made boats from tin foil and tested whether they could float in the water tray.
