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.

Mantle of the Expert

Children in Dosbarth Gwennol and Dosbarth Jac-Y-Do have come up with lots of ideas around their Mantle of the Expert theme of Elements for this term. Here are some of their ideas…

Water Pictures

Children in Dosbarth Gwennol and Dosbarth Jac-Y-Do have enjoyed creating pieces of artwork about the element of water. They have created pictures of rivers, sea storms, and waterfalls. The paper and colours have kindly been donated by Knighton and District Rotary Club. The pictures will be entered into a competition that will be judged in March by the Rotary Club. Pob Lwc!

Cinio Nadolig!

Nadolig Llawen i chi!

Everyone has enjoyed our free Christmas breakfast…we’re feeling full ready to see The Animal Man and to get Christmas-crafting ready for the fayre on Friday!

Carolau’r Nadolig

Today our friends Judith and Gilles returned to practise Christmas Carols with us, in English, Welsh and French. The children focussed, showing so much respect and enthusiasm… their voices were beautiful too! Diolch, Judith and Gilles.

Literacy Enrichment Day

We went on a nature walk looking at all of the signs of Autumn. We used this as inspiration to write poems based on Alan Peate ‘ly’ sentences.


We were so lucky to work with Tanya to develop our Zumba skills on Wednesday. Here are some of our pictures.
