Children from Year 2 upwards have been learning a special song about the rights of children.
1940's Tea Party
The children have really enjoyed planning and preparing for their 1940’s themed party. Special thanks to Louise Hardwick for baking with the children, staff and volunteers and parents for supporting the event.
World Book Day
On Thursday we welcomed Judith and Gilles to share a story with us about the ‘Legend of the whistling tree’ . They read the story in English, Welsh and French. We really enjoyed finding out about the French legend.
We also looked at the story of Handa’s Suprise and we completed a variety of activities based on the story.
St. David's Day
We have enjoyed a variety of activities to celebrate St. David’s Day. We sung our hearts out to ‘Dydd Cofio Dewi Sant’ and ‘Yma o Hyd’, we read some Welsh stories and we played ‘Trap Llygodyn’ and ‘Faint o’r gloch ydy Mister Blaidd?’
We enjoyed another great Pyjama session last week with Louise. We created a story about being evacuee children and we thought carefully about some of the games that they would have played.
Dathliad Cymraeg/St David's Day Celebrations
Well done to all our Dathliad Cymraeg competition winners. We celebrated their efforts in a special assembly where we were also joined by one woman band Mrs Judith Phillips, who taught us ‘A Lan Y Mor.’
Our Evacuee Assembly
We enjoyed dressing up and celebrating all of the fantastic work that we have done this term relating to our Mantle of the Expert theme of Journeys.
We enjoyed welcoming parents back into class to look at our work.
Peter the Fisherman
John Meredith, the Diocese Director of Education has been working with Year 2 and 3 pupils to create animations depicting the story of how Peter was chosen to be a disciple.
Today the children have enjoyed applying their number bonds when writing their own word problems. They wrote their own problems and enjoyed asking their friends to solve them.
The Last Garden
We worked with Peter and Sharon to create another story based on ‘The Last Garden’. The story was based in Bosnia in 1996 and told the story of a girl that had to leave her home and her beautiful garden. We travelled back in time and met Slev who had taken refuge in the garden. He had no home and was looking after lots of children that had lost their families. They also met Zara’s mum (a character from the story ) who had returned back to her home after many years away from the garden. The children had the opportunity to hot seat her and ask her questions about her life and what it was like being a refugee.
The children decided that they would like to help Slev, Zara and her mum rebuild the garden. So they went back to the future and gathered resources that they would need to grow the garden again. When they returned to the garden and rebuilt it, they welcomed Zara back and they all had a party.
