Fire Engine

Thank you to Knighton Fire Brigade who kindly brought their fire engine to the school. The children had a fabulous time exploring the equipment.

Safer Internet Day

As part of Dosbarth Gwennol’s work for Safer Internet Day the children took part in two activities this morning. The first was to read the story of Mog and Jo. Mog and Jo were two children that loved to play games online. However, one day they saw something that worried them. Luckily they told a trusted adult what was worrying them. We discussed the importance of always telling an adult if something makes us feel worried or uncomfortable.

Our second activity was to express a range of feelings caused by technology and the Internet.


Jim and Rob from Powys Road Safety visited us today to introduce the Kerbcraft scheme.

Kerbcraft is a practical child pedestrian training scheme designed to teach pedestrian skills to 5 to 7 year olds, by means of practical road-side training rather than teaching in the classroom.

Kerbcraft is built around teaching three skills: choosing safe places and routes; crossing safely at parked cars and crossing safely near junctions.

After half term, the children will be taught in the road environment near the school, in pairs or groups of three children, by trained volunteers.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Children in Year 2 and 3 have been marking Holocaust Memorial Day by making memorial flames to remember and honour those people affected by the Holocaust.

Creating Volcanoes

We created our own interpretation of an erupting volcano when we were fin ding out how volcanoes were formed.

Earth Artwork!

Year 2 and 3 have worked hard to create a piece of artwork depicting one of the Elements, Earth. Da iawn pawb!

Pyjama Drama

Children in Dosbarth Gwennol have enjoyed having a visit with Louise from Pyjama Drama. Louise helped them to create a performance based on the spread of the Great Fire of London. Well done Lacy for sitting in the hot seat and taking on the role of Thomas Farriner!

Layers of Earth

Today we started our Mantle of the Expert theme looking at Earth’s ‘elements’ by being a team of investigators exploring the layers of the Earth. We used salt dough to make models of the Earth.


Fire Safety

We were joined by Angela today from Mid West Wales Fire Brigade. Angela is a fire safety officer. She talked to us about the types of fire, fire hazards and she read us a story about a dragon called Sbarc with an important message “Don’t touch, tell!” The story was about the danger of touching lighters and matches.
