We have enjoyed gardening with Tom from the Community Garden and we look forward to sampling some of the vegetables in the Autumn.
Spoken Word poet and author Dai Woolridge visited us and shared his creation story with us. It inspired us to write our own poetry and share it with the rest of the school. We also enjoyed a special performance after school for parents and members of the community.
We enjoyed returning back to the stage again for our Summer production of Pirates Versus Mermaids. Here are a few pictures of such a memorable show!
Children enjoyed a variety of problem solving activities this afternoon where they were able to use and apply their mathematical knowledge.
Children have enjoyed building and fire lighting.
The children have been fantastic using tools to make wooden necklaces.
On Tuesday we were lucky enough to be visited by Hudson’s mum and their lamb. We thought of lots of interesting questions including why Elliott was wearing a nappy.
We looked at the Bible and we discussed the old testament and the new testament. The first book in the New Testament is the Gospel of Matthew. It is named after one of Jesus’ 12 disciples. We discussed the story of Matthew that is found in Matthew 9.9-13.
We found out that when Jesus was on Earth, he often spent time with people who were disliked or unpopular with others. Jesus believed that everyone should be allowed a chance for their lives to be changed so that they could have a fresh start. We discussed when we have been given a second chance and we we have given others second chances
Children in Dosbarth Gwennol had a lovely day last day of term. They all came to school in their beautiful Easter bonnets and took part in a parade around the school. The parade ended in the Children’s Centre where Donna treated us to a story and Lee had the tough decision of judging the bonnets.
Well done to all of the children for their wonderful bonnets, they all made a superb effort. The overall winner was Lacey!
After the parade the children went on an egg hunt and collected some chocolatey treats!
I hope you all have a lovely Easter break.
The children have been discussing their Mantle of the Expert theme for the Summer Term which is Exploration with a focus on Space Exploration. When they returned from playtime they were greeted with an unusual sight…..
The children listened to part of the story ‘Whatever Next’ which is about a little bear going on a space journey. One of the children volunteered to go up into space. Upon their return, we hot seated them asking them lots of questions about their trip to space. We recorded some of the things that we wanted to find out about space on our mind maps in our Mantle groups.
