Science STEM Morning

The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at ‘Seasonal Change’. We focused on rainfall and decided to make ‘Rain gauges’. we place two in the Quad area and two in the car park.

The children have had a fantastic time over the last three days monitoring the rainfall. With today’s rainfall, we had to measure the water using two measuring jugs as it was too much to fit into one.

Science Stem Morning

The pupils had a wonderful time exploring electricity. They learned how to make a circuit, lighting a bulb and making a buzzer buzz.  “This is the best thing I have ever done!” said one of the children! 

Science STEM!

We have had a fantastic morning working outdoors.  We have been investigating the mini-beasts that live in the school grounds.  We started off the morning going on a mini-beast hunt, then we constructed a bar graph to show the different mini-beasts that live in the school grounds.

We then discussed the habitats that different mini-beast live and decided to construct a bug hotel!  We thought carefully about the natural materials that we would need to collect, and in groups we constructed our hotels.

Playful Play!

Y5 children have had an amazing few sessions with Ben Webb, learning about ‘Playful Play’ and children’s rights.

They now have the skills to lead play within the playground as ‘Play Leaders’ 🙂

We thoroughly enjoyed our Literacy Enrichment morning in KS2!

Homework

In Aderyn Du and Barcud Coch spelling activity homework will be given out on a TUESDAY, to be returned the following TUESDAY.  Minute Maths homework will be given out on a THURSDAY, to be returned the following THURSDAY.  In additon to these weekly homework activities we may, on occasions, ask children to complete some problem solving activities or reading comprehension work in order to consoildate learning that has taken place in class.

READING- We require the children to read 4 times a week at home and that an adult signs their reading record each time that they have read.  Although many of the children read fluently by the time that they reach Year 5 and Year 6 it is still very important that they read as often as possible, and vary the type of material that they are reading.  Reading to an adult at this age is also encouraged in order that unfamiliar vocabulary is highlighted, or the content of a book or article discussed.

Literacy Enrichment Day!

As part of our Literacy Enrichment Day on Wednesday, we looked at the story Handa’s Surprise.

We enjoyed a range of activities including data handling on HWB, drama and role play and creative art.  Each of the activities had a oracy theme.

We have had lots of fun ‘role playing’ and retelling the story of Handa’s Surprise.  We all acted as different characters from the story and got into ‘role’ with confidence.
