The learners developed some important skills in our Health and Wellbeing session this afternoon. Learners trusted each other to lead them around our Trim Trail, blindfolded! Lots of imperative verbs and prepositions were used!
Blwyddyn 5 a 6 had a fantastic three days on residential at Tregoyd House. We had the opportunity to take part in Abseiling, Fencing, Sensory Trail, Aeroball, Raft building, Zip Wire and Archery. Followed by evening entertainment; marshmallows and songs around the campfire and hide and seek.
This week we have been working hard to retell the story of ’Jack and the Beanstalk’ through role play where we used great expression and actions!
We have been learning about planting and growing. We planted a range of seeds, beans and flowers in our garden. We also planted our own sunflowers and potted some potatoes to grow.
We have been using our teamwork skills to build dens. We had great fun and made some amazing hideaways!
Last year Dosbarth Mrs Curtis and Dosbarth Miss Powell planted wildflowers, the children then collected the seeds from these flowers. This morning we have planted the seeds in our pots, we are excited to see the flowers grow and attract insects.
Dosbarth Miss Powell and Dosbarth Mrs Curtis had a busy afternoon on Friday. We planted sunflower seeds in the pots that we decorated on Thursday. Whose sunflower will be the tallest?
In Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne, this week we have been busy in maths learning about money. Some of the activities included a coin hunt outside, shop role play and some coin games.
Within Dosbarth Miss Borgoyne, this terms’s topic is ‘Down in the Garden’. As part of this, we have began to explore the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. This week we have been introduced to the characters in the story and have written character descriptions for some of them. Watch this space for more work linked to the story in the coming weeks.
This morning, Dosbarth Miss Powell and Dosbarth Mrs Curtis went on a Welly Walk to view our local area, focusing on the local caravan park. We have started our Theme Park Thrills learning journey here, as part of our cynefin (belonging).
