Coconut Ladoos

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne enjoyed the experience of making Indian coconut ladoos in class and showed great team work throughout. The learners followed instructions carefully and used their measuring skills to measure out the ingredients accurately. Well done everyone!

Tie-dye

Following our learning about Indian clothing, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about cotton and how the United Kingdom relies on other countries such as India to get this due to them having the correct weather conditions to grow it. The learners explored the life cycle of a cotton T-shirt and learnt about tie dying. They had great fun creating their own bright tie-dyed T-shirts to resemble the vibrant colours used in Indian clothing. Don’t they all look great! 

Traditional Indian Clothes

The learners in Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne wore their own home clothes to school this week to compare these with traditional Indian clothing. The learners were excited to try on some Indian clothes and were able to find some similarities and differences between these and their own clothes.

India

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have started their theme of ‘Diversity’ this term. The learners located India on a map and compared it to the United Kingdom. They worked hard to carry out some of their own research using technology, maps and books to find out information about the country.

Special Books

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have learnt about the Torah this week. As part of this, the learners created scrolls with their own special messages in. Some examples of these included, ‘Be kind to one another and treat everyone as you want to be treated’ and ‘Be nice to one another and listen so everyone can speak. Look after the plants so the Earth is colourful and peaceful’. The learners also had the opportunity to bring in their own special book to share with the class and then carried out a piece of work on this. 

Star of David Art

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about the Star of David and have been creating some artwork inspired by this. The learners started by exploring different media to see which they felt was going to be best for their final design and then experimented with colour and pattern to see which colours they felt worked well together. The learners thought of words to describe their patterns and came up with words such as ‘bright’, ‘happy’, ‘warm’ and ‘cold’. Some of the learners practised drawing the Star of David before then creating their final pieces of artwork. All learners have tried particularly hard throughout our lessons and have created some amazing art! 

Jedaism

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have started learning about Judaism this week. The learners began by independently exploring a range of artefacts. They described these and created their own questions about what they wanted to find out about them. The learners thought of some excellent questions in which they are excited to find out the answers to. 

Sports Ambassadors

Our Sports Ambassadors met with Maggie from Sport Powys to discuss upcoming plans to promote Health and Wellbeing in school.

The Sports Ambassadors would like to ask if there are any individuals in the local community who have a sporting skills to share/talk about in school with learners.
