  • Mr Keegan’s One Man Band

    We were in for a treat today as Mr Keegan brought in all of his instruments and played for us in assembly.

  • Super Superheroes!

    What a ‘super’ day we have had in Year 1. We began by finding out what our Superhero names are and writing them in secret messages! Using paint, we were able to work out what everyone’s Superhero name is! Then, we decided that to be a Superhero we need superhero equipment, so we created some […]

  • Foundation Phase Autumn Exploration Day

    Today the Foundation Phase children enjoyed lots of hands-on, practical Autumn-themed activities. Unfortunately, the weather was against us, but with some adaptations to the planned activities, the children had a fantastic day, during which they further developed their personal & social and independence skills. The children developed their fine motor skills through making bird feeders, […]

  • The Evil Pea causes chaos…

    What a traumatic week we have had in Year 1! First of all, the Evil Pea caused havoc in the classroom by sellotaping vegetables and covering them in paint! So we made our very own Supertatoes to rescue the vegetables. Then, our lovely class mascot, Ioan the Sheep, was kidnapped by the Evil Pea! Luckily, […]

  • Messy Monday

    This week, we have been reading the story ‘Charlie’s Superhero Underpants’. Charlie’s underpants go missing and a yeti finds them. The children used the outdoors to create their very own Yetis. Their creations were amazing and all so original. We then decided to go on a leaf hunt and try and find out which trees are […]

  • Superkid!

    Our book is ‘Superkid’ this week and in the story, he encounters some pirates, so we went on our own pirate scavenger hunt on our outdoor day this week. We found cannonballs (conkers!), a parrot’s feather, a captain’s hook (a twig/stick shaped like a hook!) and we even found a plank for people to walk!! We […]

  • Brilliant Banner

    Today was our final day of the project – The Bells Of Santiago. Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed egniting their creative sides. The banner is outstanding (even if I do say so myself). The banner will now be laminated and hung in the Waterfront Museum in preparation for the exepition in October.

  • Amazing Art – Bells of Santiago

    Today, following on from yesterday’s creative lessons linked to the Bells of Santiago project, Keith, our local artist inspired us to begin to create a banner related to the fire. Our art work will be hung in the Waterfront museum as we perform our song on October the 4th. Today was stage 1… Vocabulary word […]

  • The Bells…

    We are currently in progress of day two of our Bells of Santiago music creation project. The children have had the opportunity to listen to, sing, write and play music – piano and bells. Year 6 are thoroughly enjoying the project so far.

  • Creative composition

    Today Stacey Blythe came in to school to compose a song about the Bells of Santiago. We will be performing our song to the juniors tomorrow. We will also be performing to the public and family at the Swansea Waterfront Museum on October 4th… Details to follow.

  • The Bells Of Santiago

    Thank you to the Lighthouse Theatre company for their amazing, inspiring and theatrical performance this morning. The production was part of our art project … This was stage one of the project. The children thoroughly enjoyed and also loved the follow up workshop where they developed their acting skills.

  • Awesome Art Work

    Today year 4/5 visited the Glynn Vivian Art Museum. As we are studying the body, our focus was portraits. Pupils drew art work by Josef Herman, they also drew the art work collected by Richard Glynn Vivian. The children then looked closely in the mirror to observe their facial features. They drew their faces and […]
