Christmas Party

All of the children in the Foundation Phase have had a very enjoyable afternoon at our Christmas party, with a special visit from Father Christmas too!

Investigating Christmas Cards

Today we have been busy investigating different types of Christmas cards.  We have looked at the four types of Christmas card; Biblical, Secular, Humorous and Victorian and discussed their similarities and differences.

In our groups we sorted the Christmas cards in a variety of ways.

The Nativity

We have been learning about The Nativity Story and how Jesus, the Son of God, was born.  We had lots of fun using our very own Nativity to retell the story.

 

We have also been learning some Makaton for some of the characters from the Nativity story;

Angel

Three Kings

Donkey

The Pori Drwy Stori Rhyme Challenge

Over the last 5 weeks, we have been learning a rhyme a week. This has been so much fun and we have had lots of giggles with the tongue twister rhymes. You can help to continue learning these rhymes at home with your child with their rhyme book they have.

Pupil Voice - Spring Term 2020

Our topic for Spring Term 2020 is, ‘Our Wonderful World’. We read the story and stopped at the part where the aeroplane landed into the sea. The children worked together to problem solve and freeze-frame different situations of how Emma Jane and the animals could get back to dry land.

 

Christmas Fair

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the KS2 Christmas Fair last week. We had lots of fun looking around the amazing products KS2 children and staff had been busy making over the week. We hope they made lots of profit.

Christmas fair!

The children enjoyed visiting the KS2 Christmas Fair this afternoon.  KS2 pupils and staff have been working very hard designing and making products all week to sell at the fair.  It was lovely to see it so well supported!

Emma Jane's Aeroplane

We read this story which will be the basis of our work next term. The children went on to freeze-frame how Emma Jane and the animals escaped from the water.

The children have planned the activities and learning they want to carryout next term.

Christmas Entrepreneur Fayre!

Aderyn Du have been thoroughly enjoying making some fantastic things to sell at our Christmas Fayre on Friday 6th December, 2pm!  All welcome!

Pupil Voice.....Planning for Spring Term!

As part of our Spring Term topic ‘Our Wonderful World’, we read the story ‘Emma Jane’s Aeroplane’.

We freeze framed halfway through the story and in our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ groups we predicted and acted out alternative endings to the story.

 

In our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ groups we also thought about what we would like to learn this term.

We produced mind maps showing our ideas.
