We have been busy learning a song about the weather…..
What a fabulous end to half term celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee out on the playground. It was lovely for us to be able to come together after such a long time!
Today we (space cadets from the European Space Agency!) were given details of a competition that we could enter.
Why didn’t the asteroid belt form a planet? What would the planet have been like if it did?
Drawing fruits and vegetables. Tynnu ffrwythau a llysiau!
Today Year 3 & 4 were visited by Elin from The Size of Wales to deliver a workshop about rainforests and climate change. We have been working on rainforests within our mantle so a lot of the information felt familiar to us. We learnt more about the issues with the ingredient ‘palm oil’ and how our day-to-day lives can impact of the tropical rainforests.
Did you know that tropical rainforests that equal 9 times the size of Wales are cut down every year? We can make small changes to help with this, such as buying a Fairtrade product once a week, baking at home (who knew baking could save lives?) using sustainable ingredients etc. And if you see this symbol on the products, even better! Let us know if you find one, it is apparently quite elusive!
Your child’s homework over this half term holiday will be to enter one (or more) of the competitions for our Dydd Dathliad Cymraeg which will be held on Friday 4th March. Our Dydd Dathliad Cymraeg is our schools day for celebrating St. David’s Day. All entries need to be uploaded onto HWB and shared with the designated teacher. Remember the more entries you compete in, the more chance you will have of winning a prize. There will be a prize for 1st, 2nd, 3rd for each category per key stage (Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2). All entries need to be in by Tuesday 1st March.
Maths and Literacy
Children were given a pack at the end of last term to complete on Friday 7th January. This includes maths and literacy work.
This term we are going to be learning about rainforests. Watch the following video and talk about it.
Do you know anything already? What is it called? What are they like? Where in the world are they? What grows there? Watch the video again and imagine you are there. Use your senses to help: see, hear, smell, feel and taste.
- Complete a senses journey based on the rainforest. The sheet can be found below. Please do not print it out, just copy it onto paper or complete it on the computer.
- Look at the words and definitions below and match them. Again no need to print these out, discuss with an adult or write them out.
Any questions please let me know?
