Physical Literacy

Pupils in Year One and Two enjoyed their first physical literacy session with Jody Owen, developing skills such as throwing and catching. The teachers loved observing the session, gaining ideas for future PE work and watching the children work so hard! SAM_9528 SAM_9529 SAM_9531 SAM_9535

Creative Schools - Friday 19th January 2018

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! 🙂

Creative Schools - Friday 12th January 2018

Jac-y-do and Cnoc-y-Coed had a great day with Ruth Rowe on Friday as part of the Creative Schools Scheme. They started to think about the kingdom they are going to be build and used some sticks they had collected to start making small scale dens. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and showed great team work! We are all looking forward to see what the next day will bring!

Germs!

Today, Emma, the school nurse visited our classes. She taught us how to wash our hands carefully so that we stop the spreading of germs. She put some ‘friendly germs’ on our hands and we saw them glow under her magic lamp. We are all going to make sure we wash our hands thoroughly from now on! DSC03173 DSC03174 DSC03175

Tudor Day!

Aderyn Du and Barcud Coch had an amazing day on Tuesday for our ‘Tudor Day’!

We dressed up; cooked Tudor recipes researched by the children; constructed Tudor houses designed from floor plans made by the children, and were challenged by a Tudor Treasure Trail, which involved reading co-ordinates and grid references.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Phil and Rebecca Morris for organising the Treasure Trail, and to Rebecca Morgan for doing such a great job helping the children with the cooking.  We really do appreciate it.

Presteigne Festival Project

On Thursday 19th November, Year 4 had the follow up visit from Michael Harvey (storyteller) and Lois Hopwood (artist) after our visit to Bleddfa Arts Centre.

First of all, he helped us to think about what makes a good story…we came up with: detail, action, dialogue, exaggeration and unexpected events. Then we recapped the story we wrote together, Michael split it into parts and each group wrote that part again but in more detail.
