Climbing on the coast

We have had such a busy day today! We left the centre early this morning with our bags packed and set off on a walk around the coast and to rock climb, climb through caves and abseil. The children have achieved so much today and they are all feeling SO PROUD of themselves. The staff are also so proud of all they have achieved this week.
They have made memories to last a lifetime, developed independence and created their most memorable moments for the leavers assembly. What an excellent start to Year 6. Continue reading

Tremendous Triathletes.

Today 28 Junior pupils took on the challenge to swim, bike and run in the name of Swansea Tri. The children were extremely excited but a little nervous. All pushed themselves to achieve the best race ever. The event was held at Penlan Sports Centre. We were so proud of each and every one of them; they certainly deserved their medals.

Race For Life

Rain stopped play today! But we celebrated our yearly Race for Life with an assembly discussing all about how we can support people with cancer. We even had special visitors come to the school to celebrate the event – Our Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, our chair of Governors and the Evening Post.
We will be running tomorrow for the race for life, hoping to collect sponsors for this amazing cause, so far we have raised £500. Thank you for your support. Continue reading

An Orienteering Outing.

This afternoon, linked to our topic, year 4/5 learnt how to hide clues around the school yard and orienteered their way to find the hidden clues related to parts of the body. They hunted for letters that spelt out organs from the body and also searched for hidden children using their maps and the newly learnt skills linked to coordinates.

Nursery’s Big Toddle.

The nursery children have been raising money for Barnardos. They took part in ‘The Big Toddle’, which is a sponsored walk for the under 5s. With the help of the year 5 children, and some parents and grandparents, they walked nearly half a mile round and round the yard. It was a boiling hot day, so we finished off with a lovely picnic and a nice refreshing tip top. Well done nursery!

Windy Welly Wednesday

The nursery and reception children had great fun this week learning all about air and wind. We learned that air is all around us but we can’t feel it unless it moves, so we tried to think of ways to make it move. We listened to the story of the three little pigs where the big bad wolf used his breath to huff and puff and blow the house down. We used our breath to huff and puff and blow paint, to make a lovely blow painting picture. We washed dolls clothes and hung them on the line for the wind to blow them dry. We used squeezy bottles to blow air into the water to see if it would make bubbles. We made blow tubes from cardboard tubes and tissue paper, that we could blow into to see the effect on the coloured paper; very pretty! We made cloud pictures from cotton wool balls and we even ran really fast around the yard to see if we could feel any movement in the air.
