Fire station visit

The Year 1 class had a wonderful time at the fire station today. The firefighters told us all about the important job that they do and we had the chance to take a look at some of the equipment that they use. We had the chance to sit in their fire engine and we were even allowed to have a turn at spraying water from the hose! Some of the adults had a race to see who could get a suit on the quickest- it took them a while as the suits were so heavy!
We have learnt so much about firefighters today and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Thank you to the firefighters at Gorseinon fire station for having us. (more…)


Firework Fun

As part of our topic, Glitter and Glow, the Year 2 children undertook a design challenge where they had to design and make their own rockets. Each rocket had to include a cone nose, launch stick and flames. They had some fantastic design ideas and worked with enthusiasm, independence and motivation. (more…)


Jellybean Data Handling

Yesterday the Year 2 children were set a challenge by their class elf, Jingles. Jingles had been naughty and had mixed up all the jelly beans. The children had to sort them out and then worked on a data collection exercise. The children worked on tallying and made graphs showing the number of jelly beans for each colour. They then looked at totals, differences and which colours were most and least frequent.


Marshmallow Maths!

This morning we were set a challenge by our class elf, Jingles. We had to investigate ways to share marshmallows equally between different groups. It was lots of fun and we even started learning about remainders!


Children in Need

In our celebration assembly today we have been learning about Children in Need. Our day will be filled with celebrating all we can do to help children who are less fortunate than ourselves.
We have helped raised money by a cake sale, selling toast, hot chocolate, face painting and wearing spots or pyjamas.

Congratulations also to our stars this week. Including Mrs Norman for being awarded the Eco award by our Eco Committee (more…)
