We went to West Midlands Safari Park to help us with our topic ’Freezing Lands’. We saw lots of animals, including penguins, seals snd reindeers. We also had a tour around the Ice Age and learnt lots of interesting facts.

Chinese New Year!

We have had great fun celebrating Chinese New Year this week. We have learnt a lot and was able to explore different Chinese items, including Chinese red money envelopes, a lantern and a Chinese scroll. We also made our own Chinese dragons and danced with these and tried some Chinese food

Our Welly Walk


This week Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about maps. As part of this, we went on a welly walk to explore our local area and then created our own maps of New Radnor in class. We have also learnt about physical and human features and identified these on our walk.


The Animal Man

On Monday the man from Corner Exotics came to our class and showed us lots of exotic animals. We had the opportunity to hold a tarantula, a chameleon, a giant frog, some snakes, a scorpion, a hedgehog and a chinchilla. We had so much fun but also learnt lots of interesting facts. Some of the children overcame their fears of snakes and spiders once they had the hands on experience with the animals and insects.

What a fabulous morning the children had!

Our Senses

Over the week Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have carried out a variety of experiments to explore our senses.

We smelt a variety of things including mint, vinegar, perfume and orange.

We tried lemon, chocolate, salty popcorn, jam and cheese puffs. The lemon was very sour!
