Nursery had a lovely morning taking part in different sports activities for Sports Relief. They finished the lesson with some relaxing yoga in the classroom! They used up lots of energy and were tired out when leaving! Da iawn pawb.
What an exhausting day! We have had a fantastic time celebrating Sport Relief. We have taken part in Hockey, Netball, Football, CrossFit,and a 1 mile run around the village. We also met Ozzy the Osprey and Ospreys superstar Keelan Giles! The children had great fun and particpated in all activities whole heartedly! I imagine there will be some tired legs and a few lay ins tomorrow morning! Have a great weekend.
We will be closing at 12pm today due to the severe weather forecast. Please collect your children from the normal class exits at this time. Due to the early closure, lunch will not be provided today. A decision will be made about Friday as soon as possible and you will be informed through the usual methods: parentmail, School blog, Twitter, swansea.gov website and the wave.
As you are aware there is an amber snow warning for the whole of Wales tomorrow. Neath and Port Talbot and Bridgend councils have decided to close all their schools. However, Swansea council have not yet made this decision. This means, at the moment, we will be open tomorrow with a strong possibility that we will close early. Please check your parentmail and blogs to get up to date information. I will revise the situation tomorrow morning and send an update. All pupils will have an early lunch as the snow is due for 12 o’clock.
Thank you for your support with this.
We have been looking for solutions to combat the shortage of water in Africa this afternoon. We have experimented with different ‘filters’ we thought would be easily available in Africa! A sieve, a sock, sand and gravel, a t-shirt and rice. Each group had a different filter and tried to make the dirty water clean. There were some interesting results and some problems that the children had to over come during the experiment. I won’t spoil the result for you, I will let the children explain what was the best filter and why when they get home!
The number one rule of code club, is we ARE allowed to talk about code club. We have been coding on studio.code.org and enhancing our digital and problem solving skills along the way. We are looking at other avenues of coding next week to ensure the children have a broad range to choose from.
Congratulations to our stars this week
The children have been introduced to our new topic in Year 5 this afternoon! We started to fill out a KWL grid on Padlet and watched informative videos giving us a terrific overview of the massive continent. They are very eager to learn more about this wonderful place over the coming term.
Here’s a behind the scenes look at our Year 5, 2018 calendar. The children are having good fun using the Green Screen to put it together! We hope you will like the end product.
Our Entrepreneurs were working hard at last night’s Winter Fayre, selling their merchandise throughout the night. Between the 4 groups, they raised over £150!
Da iawn pawb!
