Our newly appointed school council and Super Ambassadors have had a couple of meetings already and they are very excited about the impact that they can make this year. They have some fantastic ideas and cannot wait to get started! What an enthusiastic group! We are looking forward to seeing what they get up to…
Today the children in Years 2-6 enjoyed watching a production about bullying, called ‘The B Word’. The children watched attentively and thoroughly enjoyed the show. The show was very informative, and covered lots of issues including cyber bullying. The children were also taught about what bullying means, and when they term ‘bullying’ should be used.
Our book is ‘Superkid’ this week and in the story, he encounters some pirates, so we went on our own pirate scavenger hunt on our outdoor day this week. We found cannonballs (conkers!), a parrot’s feather, a captain’s hook (a twig/stick shaped like a hook!) and we even found a plank for people to walk!! We then made our own Superkid masks using items we found in the outdoors. We are all Superkids in Year 1!
Today the year 2 children had a fantastic morning working outside with Sarah from the RSPB doing a Bioblitz. The children pulled on their wellies and went into the nature reserve to hunt for different animals in the environment. We found lots of creatures, including woodlice, worms, land hoppers and even newts! We recorded our results using tallying, developing our numeracy skills. Diolch to Sarah for a fantastic, interesting and fun-filled morning.
On Tuesday, Sammy the Seagull and Mr. Williams from Swansea Council visited school to teach the children about the importance of recycling. The children showed their excellent understanding by answering lots of questions, and even helped Sammy to recycle common household waste. The children also enjoyed listening to a story about a recycling superhero, Michael Recycle. Diolch to Sammy and Mr. Williams for an enjoyable, informative assembly, which helped us on our way to becoming recycling superheroes.
