On Monday, the Year 2 children enjoyed celebrating Diwrnod Shwmae. The event aims to show that the Welsh language belongs to us all – fluent speakers, learners or those shy about their Welsh. The children made colourful Shwmae banners to promote the Welsh language, and enjoyed using Shwmae in their conversations throughout the week.
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.
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!
A huge thank you to everyone who came to support our Harvest Service and Macmillan coffee morning today. The children had a great time performing and we hope you enjoyed their songs. We have only recieved a few responses to the questionnaires on the seats. If you haven’t already filled in the extremely quick survey, you can find the link below. It will provide some great data for our eco-team. Thanks for our continued support. https://tinyurl.com/y7vll5sa
Today the Year 2 children visited the book fair. They really enjoyed browsing the books that are on sale this week. Their enthusiasm for reading was clear to see!
The nursery children have been really busy learning all about 2D shapes. They looked for shapes hidden in the sand and in shaving foam, and they cut shapes out of playdough. They participated in a range of different shape activities and looked for different shapes in the Lego. They printed with shapes to make a colourful picture to go on our classroom display and they developed their IT skills by completing an activity on the interactive whiteboard and iPads. Gwaith da nursery! Da iawn!
This morning, our pupil voice group for Health & Well-Being and Rights Respecting had their first meeting. We talked about the aims of our group and how we could go about creating a happy, safe and caring environment in our school. The children couldn’t wait to share their ideas and suggestions and are looking forward to beginning work on these when we meet next week. Well done boys and girls – what a fantastic an enthusiastic start to this pupil voice group.
Today saw the first joint meeting of the Enterprise Troopers, and they got off to a flying start! They have set a huge target for fundraising this year, with ideas flowing and lots of discussion. As a group they decided on a purpose statement, as well as long and shorter term targets.
Our next meeting will see the appointment of a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurers to help move the group forwards.
Today our pupil voice group for Safety had their first meeting, which was extremely productive! We discussed the aims of our group and why pupil voice is so important. The children came up with lots of fantastic suggestions for improving and maintaining safety within and outside school, and we look forward to working on their suggestions throughout the year. The children also voted on the name for our group, and the winning name was SAFETY SOLDIERS!What a fantastic start to this important pupil voice group.
