Cogurdd 2023

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!

Music with Mr. Burrows

We have enjoyed having Mr. Burrows coming in to teach us some music and helping us to create our own musical pieces. We learnt all about programmatic music and were shown how to create our own musical pieces with the theme of ‘A journey through space’. After learning how to play different instruments and keeping to beat and rhythm, we designed our own journey through space pieces and performed them to the class!

Netball tournament

Pupils in year 5/6 competed in the cluster Netball tournament. Everyone enjoyed learning all about the game and showed great sportsmanship and teamwork through the tournament.

Well-being day! Diwrnod Iechyd Meddwl!

Years 5 and 6 took part in lots of different activities which promote a positive mental health, these included; Forest School, baking, team-building games, Lego, K’nex, art and more….! We think everyone had a great time, even if the biscuits didn’t taste quite as we had hoped!

Dinosaur homework

Pupils in Aderyn Du were given some homework to create a dinosaur made out of recycled materials, and to follow a recipe to make their own dinosaur poo! All the children created some fantastic finished products and enjoyed showing them to the rest of the class.

PC Ainsworth

Today we were visited by PC Ainsworth who spoke to us about drugs. We considered the different types of drugs … medicines, legal and illegal. We then discussed the dangers of drugs. This is a really important conversation to have and would be worth following up at home.
