The nursery children have been celebrating St David’s Day today. They learned all about St David, make a lovely daffodil collage and even tasted some Welsh cakes. They dressed up in their Welsh costumes and rugby jerseys and sang a Welsh song in the school Eisteddfod. Don’t they look smart in their costumes!
In preparation for our Eisteddfod, Year 1 have been learning about the story of Jac Abertawe, the dog who saved lots of people from the sea in Swansea. The children did some fantastic writing where they rewrote the story in their own words. I am so impressed with how much their writing has progressed and they are are so enthusiastic. Ardderchog!
It was tricky to take photographs of the children in Year 3 dancing this afternoon but what a giggle we had! Every child joined in and every child had a huge smile on their face as they tried welsh folk dancing. Excellent team work today and great listening skills! Ardderchog!
We have had a very creative afternoon today. As part of our welsh week we have been studying the myth The Giant of Snowdon. The children activated their prior knowledge by sharing lots of interesting Snowdon facts as well as learning many more. They then looked at images of Snowdon and tried to re-create a scene using oil pastels. We talked about the shading and mixing of colours and the work that the children produced was fantastic! Bring on our Eisteddfod on March 1st!
As part of Welsh week the nursery children have been learning all about y Ddraig Goch – The Red Dragon. They painted their very own dragon and even had time to colour a dragon mask. Don’t they look scary!
Year 6 have been developing their Literacy and Numeracy skills this week and have been weighing, mixing and cooking cakes of their choice to share with loved ones on Santes Dwynwen Day.
Mrs Norman was the critical judge and enjoyed every cake.
Pupils made us proud with their team work and independence. They are now skilled to bake cakes at home! Continue reading →
