Tanio'r Ddraig

On Thursday 23rd January 2020, Miss Davies and four very enthusiastic Criw Cymraeg members attended a very exciting day in Builth Wells.

The day gave us a range of ideas and activities to implement within our school to help us to fulfil the requirements for the language Charter. We carried out the following workshops; ‘Mewn Cymeriad’ a show to explain the Welsh Culture and Language, ‘Mr Phormula’ a Welsh Beatboxer, a Welsh Yoga session and a Welsh music session.

This is what the children thought about the day;

‘It was the best day ever!’

‘I can’t believe Mr Phormula makes all of that music by just using his voice.’

‘We had so much fun and used lots of Welsh.’

‘The activities were amazing, I loved the Yoga.’

Locomotion!

This week we have been developing our jumping, hopping, skipping, leaping, walking, marching and rolling skills.

We enjoyed playing the games ‘Simon Says’ and ‘Island Hopping’.

Dodging

Today we developed our ‘dodging’ skills.  We kept our heads up to look where we were going.  We bent our knees and we pushed off on our left foot to dodge right and pushed off on our right foot to dodge left .

We also played ‘fishes in the sea’ practicing our dodging skills.

Coding Club

We started this years coding club with some unplugged coding. We really enjoyed creating obstacle courses for each other. We then blindfolded one person and had to give them instructions to get through the course.

We found out that instructions need to be detailed and clear to be effective.
