This morning the Year 2s enjoyed participating in a traffic survey as part of their learning about road safety. They were amazed at how busy the road outside school is. We then analysed the data and next week the children will be creating bar charts and pie charts on Hwb to show what they found out. Gwaith da, Blwyddyn 2!
As part of our road safety learning, this week the Year 2 children enjoyed making traffic light biscuits. They also enjoyed designing their own roads outdoors, which included important safety features such as zebra crossings and traffic lights.
Today the Year 2 children visited the tram shed in Swansea Museum. We got to sit in the old Mumbles tram and listed to Miss Phoebe tell us what it was like travelling on the tram in Swansea long ago. We joined in with lots of stories and even tried on some of the clothes that people wore to go to the seaside a long time ago. We then finished the day off with a lovely ice cream treat as a reward for being so awesome on our trip.
Reception have been learning all about the properties of Ice in our STEM week sessions. Just for fun the children chose different ice cubes made of juice and built their own ice towers in a cup. We then watched them melt!
We had some different results depending on the order of ice cubes…
look at the pictures to see the fun!

This week the Year 2 children have enjoyed reading The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. They worked well when thinking about adjectives to describe the seagulls in the story. The children then worked on developing questions to ask Hamish the cat, and thought of what Hamish would say in response to their questions. The children also undertook some fantastic research about lighthouses, and even enjoyed chalking their own lighthouse designs outdoors. The children are looking forward to more lighthouse keeper fun next week!
We were extremely excited to have a Skype call with Mr. Vaughan this morning. He is currently in Australia and took some time out of his busy schedule of surfing and relaxing to talk to Year 5 and 6. He told us a bit about his travels this far and then children were able to ask him lots of interesting questions. After the call we discussed online communication and the advantages and disadvantages of each form of communication in turn. Continue reading →
A big thank you to the Year 6 boys who have been running the after school club Movie Makers over the last term. They have done a fantastic job and everyone has enjoyed. After weeks of filming and editing, today the children got to watch their movies on the big screen! Another successful enterprise. Bendigedig!
Some of our School Council representatives recently attended a pupil voice forum at Cefn Hengoed Comprehensive School. The children had the opportunity to meet with pupils from other schools in Swansea, as well as representatives from various different organisations. The children listened to a variety of presentations and also had the chance to give their view about proposed changes to the structure of the Ethnic Minority Achievement Unit (EMAU).
