This week the RSPB came in to school to take the Year 2 children outdoors for a ‘Wild Words’ session. The children enjoyed using their senses whilst exploring the outdoor environment. The children then retold their journeys using powerful, interesting vocabulary choices. What a fantastic session! Diolch yn fawr to Sarah from the RSPB for helping us.

Fabulous Fireworks!

What a busy couple of days we have had with all our firework themed activities. We made lovely glittery firework pictures,  designed our own bonfire night rocket, made fireworks out of sparkly play dough, made big firework pictures outside using different coloured chalks and we played firework pairs and number matching  games.  We even had time to make an edible breadstick sparkler. Delicious!

Pumpkin Investigations!

After the fun morning with nursery, Reception set to work investigating the properties of a pumpkin. We described how it’s skin felt, measured how tall they were, we rolled them and even found out if they could float or if they would sink…… Do you know?

Year 2 have really enjoyed learning about lines of symmetry. The children then worked outside to apply their knowledge and skills by creating symmetrical butterflies using natural materials. The children could explain how to make their art work symmetrical, looking at position, colour and shape.

Messy Monday.

Reception and Nursery have met again! Not to get up to any trouble but to complete activities all about ‘Stickman’.

We have listened to the story, so set to work making ‘Stickmen’ out of sticklebricks, sticks and even created some rainbow art..

Take a look at our pictures!

Hwyl yn y Parc yn yr Hydref

The Year 2 children have been working hard on their Welsh skills this week. They enjoyed listening to the story ‘Hwyl yn y Parc yn yr Hydref’, which is all about the different things that people like to have fun doing in the park in the Autumn. We decided that a visit to the park would definitely be needed to help the children decide what they like doing, so off to the park we went! The children asked each other lots of questions using ‘Beth wyt ti’n hoffi?’, and they enjoyed answering using the new phrases that we learned in the story. The children have now started making their own pages for our class book based on the story, and are using Hwb to add photographs and word-processed sentences to describe what they like doing in the park.

Owl Collages

This week the Year 2s enjoyed making beautiful collages of owls using natural materials. They discussed the different shades of the leaves and which materials would be best suited to the different parts of their owl pictures. I’m sure you’ll agree that the finished collages looked wonderful.

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt!

The nursery children teamed up with reception to go on a bear hunt. They looked all around the school yard for clues. They looked on the climbing frame, the stage, in the little houses and in the construction area, and there he was hiding up a tree! You found him! Da iawn pawb! To celebrate finding him, we made some delicious bear biscuits. Yummy!
