Shwmae!

For Nursery and Reception today, we found out what it means to be a friend. We played some circle time games encouraging us to find new, old, or different friends to work with.

We also had fun shouting SHWMAE! and making hats to show how proud we are.

Reception challenged themselves to say ‘Shwmae’ as many times as they could in 20 seconds, and played the ‘Shwmae’ game.

Book Fair Success!


A huge ‘Thank You’ to everybody who supported our Scholastic book fair this week. The total spent was £789.30, which means we will receive 60% commission on all purchases! This works out as £473.58 which we can spend on purchasing new reading material for the children. Diolch yn fawr everybody. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Fabulous Faces!

Reception have been exploring the features on their faces, we looked at some faces without eyes and mouths, the children decided that we needed both to work out how we feel.

We had some fun creating our own faces using pumpkins and biscuits, yummy!

Foundation Phase Code Club 📱💻

With the help of our brilliant Digital Leaders, children from Reception to Year 2 were able to log on to Hwb and try out coding on Just 2 Easy. They started by using the ‘simple’ setting but many of them quickly moved the ‘advance’ setting, where they had to pre-programme their rocket or car to move around the screen. 📱
