Sports Relief Fun

Year 2 have had lots of fun today taking part in our Sports Relief activities. They began by participating in Yoga sessions in class. Ozzy Osprey visited the children at playtime to show his support. The children then moved outside to complete independent timed challenges, where they used the skills that they have been working on in PE lessons. After lunch it was time for the sponsored run around the village. The children did very well and it was lovely to see the junior pupils cheering them on! Lots of fun was had by all whilst raising money for a very worthwhile cause.

Sports Carousels Fun For Sports Relief

Key stage 2 have had a fantastic morning participating in a rotation of activities. These included netball, hockey, hoolahooping and CrossFit. The children were able to practise a variety of skills and they all thoroughly enjoyed. A huge thank you to Owen from CrossFit and Gavin from Sports Development Swansea.

Sports Relief a Real Hit

Sports relief this morning was a hit. Ozzie Osprey also got stuck in with the sports this morning. The teachers highlight of the day however was winning 4-1 to the pupils… not that we were extremely competative at all!

Darllen da iawn yn Blwyddyn 5!

Year 5 have been busy developing their Welsh reading and understanding skills today. They first  scanned a QR code to access an online story. They read through it in pairs, before asking and answering various questions, using previously learnt sentence patterns as well as learning some new patterns and vocabulary. The class participation was fantastic! Gwaith ardderchog.

World Book Day in Reception!

What a wonderful day had by us all. The children looked terrific!

It was such a pleasure to watch all of the children show off their favourite books and characters, we had a Peter Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland and even Mr Stink!

The children enjoyed listening to the visiting author Helen Docherty, and had some lovely suggestions for the characters in her books. We also listened to Mrs Griffiths telling us her favourite book ‘The Twits’ and then decorated Mr Twits beard with lots of horrible food! Continue reading

Celebrating World Book Day in Nursery.

We have had lots of fun in nursery today. The children and staff looked fabulous dressed as their favourite book characters. Our chosen author was Eric Carle, so we looked at the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We used tubes to print caterpillar pictures, made caterpillars out of playdough, searched for butterflies hiding in the sand and even made an edible caterpillar out of cucumber and tomatoes. Delicious! We were also lucky enough to have a visit from a real author. Helen Docherty came to read a couple of her stories to us. What a wonderful World Book Day we have had!

The Year 2 children have had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day. We have been focusing on the author Dr. Seuss. We enjoyed looking at rhyming words in his stories, exploring the Seussville website, and completing a problem solving activity based on the book ‘One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish’. The children also participated in an author workshop with Helen Docherty, where they completed some lovely activities based on her book ‘Abracazebra’. Fun has been had by all, and we are all feeling inspired to write our own stories!
