As part of our topic on ‘Fantasy and Fairy tales’, we were pleased that Jack (Jack and the Beanstalk) visited us last week to inspire us with our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ planning for the next half term.
He needs our help as he is fed up of living so close to the giant and he want to move house to a nicer area. We have suggested that he and his mother move to Knighton. Over the next few weeks we will be finding out information about the local area and reporting back to him.
Children in the Foundation Phase all enjoyed a fabulous party which they had organised on Friday 25th October. The children had been working very hard planning the party entertainment, fancy dress theme, and the advertising of the party. I’m sure you’ll agree that they did a fantastic job and looked amazing in their costumes. Well done!
We have had a fantastic morning working outdoors. We have been investigating the mini-beasts that live in the school grounds. We started off the morning going on a mini-beast hunt, then we constructed a bar graph to show the different mini-beasts that live in the school grounds.
We then discussed the habitats that different mini-beast live and decided to construct a bug hotel! We thought carefully about the natural materials that we would need to collect, and in groups we constructed our hotels.
Many thanks for your support with volunteering to help with swimming for Dosbarth Eryr and Dosbarth Gwennol. Without this valued support we would not be able to commit to weekly swimming lessons.
I am also looking for volunteers to help listen to readers in Dosbarth Gwennol.
If you are interested, please see myself, Mrs Fielding for more information.

As September is often warm and sunny, please can you ensure your child has sun cream and a sunhat in school as they will be working outside during the day.
Please could you read with your child as regularly as possible and write a comment in their yellow book so that we know that your child has read at home.
If you are able to help with our swimming sessions on a Thursday afternoon or would like to come in and hear readers this would be greatly appreciated. Please speak to Sarah in the office or your child’s class teacher.
If there is anything you would like to discuss with us then please feel free to make an appointment at the office. We are always happy to help.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs Fielding, Mrs Blower, Mrs Wood, Miss Evans, Mrs Bywater and Mrs Humphries
