The nursery children went on a shape hunt today to see what shapes they could find around the school. They were looking for circles, squares, triangles and rectangles. They looked all around the school and even found musical instruments that were the shapes they were looking for. Gwaith da nursery!
A huge congratulations to the Year 6 enterprise club ‘Attitude’ who got through to the regional finals held today in Blaenavon.

This morning, we were visited by Gemma, a fire fighter from Morriston Fire Station. Gemma came into class to teach us all about ways to stay safe around fire. She read us a story about Tanni, and we talked about the dangers of playing with matches and lighters. We also learned about how to call the fire brigade, and ways that smoke alarms can help us to stay safe. The children participated in the discussion with lots of enthusiasm, and some of us even got to try on the protective clothing worn by fire fighters. We then enjoyed completing some activities which tested our knowledge in our Tanni fire safety activity books that Gemma gave us. What a fun-filled, informative morning. The Year 2s are now fire safety experts!

Throughout the year, the Year 2 children have enjoyed further developing their fine motor skills through lots of exciting activities, such as Cheerios challenges, using tweezers and printing to name just a few. This week we decided to improve our fine motor skills by threading patterns on the fences outside. The area is looking really colourful, and the children have shown great dexterity. The children are looking forward to more exciting physical activities over the next few weeks.
