Fantastic Fine Motor Skills

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.

Building Bridges.

The nursery children used their problem solving skills today to build bridges across the construction area. They worked as a team, using planks of wood and blocks to construct bridges that they were able to walk across. They then used their balancing skills to walk across their constructions. Gwaith da nursery! Think we have some future engineers!

What a day!

This afternoon has seen us taking part in circus skills, orienteering, creating fire and cooking marshmallows, taking on the dizzy heights of the high ropes, having a party for 4 children who have had their birthdays over the week, and finally dancing the night away at the disco. The children are now all in their rooms for some free time before lights out.
Tomorrow we finish the trip with climbing, archery and skiing.

Liberty Stadium Tour

Year 5 had an amazing time at the Liberty Stadium this morning! We started off in the Away dressing room (where great teams such as the Scarlets have sat 😜) and then moved around into the press room, physio room, Ozone and trophy cabinet. We finished our tour in the impressive home changing room where both the Ospreys and Swansea City prepare for their home games. Finally we got to go through the tunnel and out to pitch side. Before going home we got to eat our dinner in the stands and even sung Calon Lan!

Year 3 Rainforest Music

Using materials that were available to them in our outdoor area they made their own musical instruments. Some of the children found stones to bang together, others used sticks and leaves. Working together in small groups they used their natural instruments to compose a piece of music which they then performed to their friends.
