From September 2017 we will be providing an after school club.
We aim to:
Provide a caring, safe and happy environment for everyone. Encourage children to take care of others and their surroundings.
Be open and welcoming at all times and keep you informed about general club matters.
If you wish to take advantage of this service you will need to book online here.
The nursery children have been raising money for Barnardos. They took part in ‘The Big Toddle’, which is a sponsored walk for the under 5s. With the help of the year 5 children, and some parents and grandparents, they walked nearly half a mile round and round the yard. It was a boiling hot day, so we finished off with a lovely picnic and a nice refreshing tip top. Well done nursery!
The year 2 children have been making the most of the beautiful weather, and enjoyed practising their spelling words outdoors. The children worked very hard on a range of practical activities, including building words using foam dice, chalking their words, sponge printing words and building words using coloured stones and matchsticks. Gwaith da, blwyddyn 2!
On Monday, the Year 2 children were visited by Leanne, a fire safety officer, who came to teach us ways to stay safe. We were taught about smoke alarms and what to do in a fire. We listened to a lovely story about Tani, and we’re given some lovely fire safety activity books to work on. We had a great morning and now feel confident that we know what to do in a fire. Diolch, Leanne.
This week, the children have enjoyed learning about lighthouses. We have been reading different stories by the same author, David Armitage, based on a lighthouse keeper. We enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and The Lighthouse Keeper’s Picnic. We had some lovely group discussions about which was our favourite and why. We used our research skills to find out about lighthouses, and used our Numeracy skills to compare the sizes of different lighthouses across the world. We have also been working on lots of lighthouse themed activities through our enhanced provision, including designing Lego lighthouses with repeating patterns, lighthouse watercolour pictures, paper model lighthouses and using paint programmes on the PCs to paint lighthouses. Next week we will continue our learning about lighthouses by creating junk model lighthouses with working lights, making sandwiches for the lighthouse keeper and writing Welsh shopping lists for the lighthouse keeper’s wife.
The nursery and reception children had great fun this week learning all about air and wind. We learned that air is all around us but we can’t feel it unless it moves, so we tried to think of ways to make it move. We listened to the story of the three little pigs where the big bad wolf used his breath to huff and puff and blow the house down. We used our breath to huff and puff and blow paint, to make a lovely blow painting picture. We washed dolls clothes and hung them on the line for the wind to blow them dry. We used squeezy bottles to blow air into the water to see if it would make bubbles. We made blow tubes from cardboard tubes and tissue paper, that we could blow into to see the effect on the coloured paper; very pretty! We made cloud pictures from cotton wool balls and we even ran really fast around the yard to see if we could feel any movement in the air.
