The children have been busy glittering, painting, threading, hammering and gluing in order to prepare their wares for the Christmas Fair. We are a little excited!
Such fun learning new skills!
We loved using the musical instruments to add music to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We discussed the different elements of the music needed and created these elements with the percussion instruments!
This week we have been learning all about money. We have been working on coin recognition, making totals and finding different ways to make values.
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!

We have thought about the different types of bullying (direct and indirect) and what to do about it.
Today we worked with Tania to stretch and move our bodies. We learned some dances from Columbia whilst also learning where it is in the world, about its map and a little bit about their culture! We have some serious movers in our school!
Would you rather, have dinner with a witch or a frog for dinner?
We discussed this question in great length and then took a vote. You will see from the photo that nearly all pupils chose to have dinner with a witch, mainly because frogs are too slimy!!
