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.

Spring Term 2017 – Parent/Carer Information Sheet for Barcud Coch & Aderyn Du

Happy New Year! We hope you have all enjoyed a good Christmas Holiday!

This term’s mesmerising topic is Myths, Magic and Mayhem! Our main topic in Science is “Forces”; including gravity and air resistance. We will be writing information texts and interpreting data about our science topics. We will be mapping mythical places in Wales and creating timelines of when they supposedly occurred. In Art we will be creating Celtic designs linked to Maths. There will also be a strong focus on children navigating their way around HWB, developing their digital competence.

Homework

Homework will include reading with your child 4 times a week (please ensure you sign their reading record each time), practising weekly spellings and minute maths. Depending on the work completed in class, work may be sent home to reinforce learning.

Barcud Coch (Year 5/6)

Monday – Spellings go out and previous week’s are tested

Tuesday – Minute maths go out and previous week’s are tested

Thursday – P.E – kit needed (earrings will need to be removed or taped and long hair tied back)

Please could you ensure your child has a water bottle in school with them every day along with a coat and a pair of wellies, if these are not already in school.

As we are a Healthy School, we encourage the children to bring in a piece of fruit for their morning break. It is also possible to buy bananas and apples from Sarah in the office for 30p. Please note that only fresh fruit or raisins/ sultanas can be eaten at breaktime.

Home-school reading books will need to be in school every day along with the reading record. Spelling books also need to be in every day.

We are always looking for volunteers to come into both classes to listen to readers and help with activities. If you are interested then please let us know (a DBS will be needed if you are volunteering on a regular basis).

If there is anything you would like to discuss with us then please feel free to make an appointment at the office.

Mrs. Rimmer, Mrs. Watts, Mrs George and Mrs. Wood

Junk!

Hopefully you have all had a lovely rest over half term and are ready for full steam ahead this half term!

We would very much appreciate it if you could bring in any ‘junk’ (boxes, tubes, plastic bottles) as we will be designing and making a prosthetic limb this half term.
