We are very proud of all our learners who entered the Eco-Committee’s poster competition to advertise our second-hand clothing sale. All posters were excellent and the learners were very creative in the way they designed these. Thank you to all those who entered and a big well done! The Eco-Committee have now displayed the posters around our school site and in Esco’s. Don’t forget to note the date and time in your diary! 


Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been exploring dynamics within their Expressive Arts lessons this week. The learners listened to and discussed the dynamics in some space music and explored dynamics using the instruments. 

Sinfonia Cymru

What a great morning watching Sinfonia Cymru perform. Learners were excellent in describing the images that came to their mind when listening to the music and how it made them feel. They also answered and asked some great questions throughout. We would like to say a big thank you to Sinfonia Cymru for performing to us today!

Multi Health and Well-being Day

Dosbarth Miss Powell had a fantastic day at the Multi Sport Health and Wellbeing Day. We participated in a range of play-based tasks and had lots of fun!

Huge thank you to Sport Powys and Newtown High School – The Cyfle for facilitating another brilliant experience for our learners.

Peter Thorpe Space Artwork

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about Peter Thorpe and his space artwork. The learners experimented with using different techniques and textures to see which they liked best for the background and then explored which colours they thought went well together. They carefully designed their own rocket, thinking about what colours would go best with their background. Everyone worked very hard and have created wonderful pieces of artwork! 

Madley Environmental Centre Trip

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne had a great trip to Madley Environmental Centre yesterday. The learners engaged in various space activities, such as a satellite tour, making rockets, and creating their very own aliens using natural materials. The learners also had to use their problem-solving skills and team work to create the solar system where they had to plot the planets using a given distance sheet. 

Hay Festival

Dosbarth Miss Powell had a fantastic day at the Hay Festival. We listened to the authors Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Lee Newbery and Jeff Kinney. This is a fantastic experience and we are grateful to all those who facilitate this for our learners.

Many thanks to our helpers who attended, and supported us on this event.

PC Viv

PC Viv visited Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne this week to teach the learners all about how to keep safe, such as around medicines and chemicals. The learners asked and answered some great questions! 

Pottery Trip

Dosbarth Miss Powell had a brilliant day in Builth Wells at Alex Allpress Pottery. Learners had planned a coil pot to create in the studio, and it was fantastic to observe these designs come into fruition

Ordering the Planets

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about the planets in our solar system. The learners were introduced to the mnemonic ‘My Very Excellent Mum Just Served Us Noodles’ and used this to draw and order the planets. The learners thought carefully about the size and appearance of each of the planets when drawing these with chalk outdoors.
