Dathliad Cymraeg!

We have had an amazing day celebrating Wales. During the morning, we completed lot’s of lovely fun activities and our prelims for the Eisteddfod. This afternoon we all came together to compete within our classes. The children bravely showcased their talents and we all had a fun-filled afternoon.

Cross Country at Presteigne!

On Thursday 13th February 61 children from KS2 took part in the cluster cross country event at Presteigne!  We were able to transport them all thanks to our amazing parents, grandparents and staff members- diolch yn fawr!

The children showed grit and determination when faced with a challenging course and very muddy conditions.  We are very proud of them all!

Our next cross country event will be at Radnor Valley Primary on Thursday 5th March where we have 72 KS2 children taking part!

Headed Into Space!

We have worked ever so hard to code a message, image and temperature. We have had to write the code exactly right. We came across a few problems, we worked as a group to overcome these.

Team Lego have just submitted their code that will now be played on the International Space Station.

Sporting News!

On Tuesday 4th February Y3 children will be taking part in a cluster ‘Ball skills’ event at Presteigne, organised by Jody Owen, Sports Development Officer for the area.  Watch this space for feedback from the children and photos of the event!

On Thursday 6th February children in KS2 will have the opportunity to take part in the first cluster cross country meet of the year!  This time it will be held within the school day and Knighton are hosting the event over at Bryn Y Castell/Football club.  We look forward to lots of the children taking part!

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’.
