Week Ending 23rd September 2016

 

The children have been very busy this week practising for today's assembly. They really have put in a lot of effort to learn their words, songs, dances both in school and at home. We would like to thank the parents for the support you showed today, diolch!

 

The children were able to wind down in the afternoon when we were visited by Britain's got Talent semi-finalist, ventriloquist, Marc Griffiths who performed his educational show 'Gold.' The children found him hysterical, as did the teachers!

Week Ending 16th September 2016

 

This week we have been very busy practising songs, dance moves and lines for our class assembly on Friday. The children are working very hard and looking forward to the performance.

 

In maths we have been looking at different methods of adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. The methods have included counting on and back, partitioning and subtraction using the frog method.

 

We were also visited by Mr Breeze from Lloyd's bank who discussed the history of the bank, coins and money from pre-decimalisation and how to manage their money. We were surprised to hear that the founder of the bank was Welsh!

Week Ending 6th September

 

The children have settled back into school life and are quickly getting used to their new teacher, classroom and routines.

 

During the week the children competed activities to allow me to get to know them and the things they like. We discussed the classroom rules and created a list of how we would like to be treated when in the school environment.

 

We also had a chance to take part in some team building activities. Photos and videos of the activity can be seen by clicking on the link below.

This half terms topic is 

 

'Bend and Flow'

 

Our project for this half term is called ‘Bend and Flow’ and teaches children about rivers, rainfall, soils and the impact of water on the local community. Children will be given the opportunity to write poetry on a rivers theme and develop additional skills in persuasive and report writing. In this project the children will learn:

· About rivers in Wales and globaly

· To use a range of geographical skills

· To develop investigative field work skills

· To use ICT to find and present information

· To respond creatively in model making and print making

 

This is a really exciting project in which we will begin by investigating rivers in our local area and where they originate from and end up.
