Knighton and District Refugee Support Group Q&A

We enjoyed a visit from Larry, Kev and Nicola who are part of the Knighton and District Refugee Support Group who came in to answer some questions to support us with our Mantle. We learnt many interesting facts about the how the group support refugees and also how we can help in supporting refugees.

Project Touchline

Over the past few weeks, we have enjoyed some sessions with Chris Andrew from Project Touchline learning about the key value of respect and how that is represented in sports in particular rugby. We also created some pieces of Artwork representing what we have learnt throughout the project.

Animal man

We enjoyed a visit from the animal man today! We were very fortunate to hear about how different species and animals live and got the opportunity to see and touch some of the animals spoken about. There were some very brave children in the class that had the opportunity to hold the animals!

Cogurdd Competition

Well done to Beatrice Cadwallader who represented the school at the Cogurdd competition, making a wonderful chicken and pasta dish! Da iawn Beatrice!

Cogurdd 2023

Urdd members in year 5/6 were given the opportunity to compete in the school round of this years Cogurdd competition, with the task being to create a salad of their choice in 45 minutes. 14 members participated this year and all really enjoyed the challenge of making their own salads using many different skills in the process. Mrs. Layton had the difficult task of blind judging the top 3, with the winner going through to represent Knighton at the regional round. Llongyfarchiadau/Congratulations to Beatrice Cadwallader on winning the school round!

Music with Mr. Burrows

We have enjoyed having Mr. Burrows coming in to teach us some music and helping us to create our own musical pieces. We learnt all about programmatic music and were shown how to create our own musical pieces with the theme of ‘A journey through space’. After learning how to play different instruments and keeping to beat and rhythm, we designed our own journey through space pieces and performed them to the class!

Netball tournament

Pupils in year 5/6 competed in the cluster Netball tournament. Everyone enjoyed learning all about the game and showed great sportsmanship and teamwork through the tournament.

Dinosaur homework

Pupils in Aderyn Du were given some homework to create a dinosaur made out of recycled materials, and to follow a recipe to make their own dinosaur poo! All the children created some fantastic finished products and enjoyed showing them to the rest of the class.
