Today we welcomed James Evans MS in to talk to us about his job in the Senedd as part of our Journeys topic. He spoke about his role and then we got to ask him a series of questions. The learners in Dosbarth Mrs Smith asked some very sensible questions and collected the responses ready to use in their work. It was interesting to hear all about his career. Diolch yn fawr James!
An adventurous afternoon for Blwyddyn 3, 4 a 5 in our Forest School session! Here are some snaps of us in action.
This morning Blwyddyn 6 had lots of fun in our Forest Schools session. We had a go at fire lighting, mark making and played games with the leaders. We then got to toast marshmallows and cooked popcorn on the fire we lit.
Learners in Year 5 and 6 teamed up with children from Gladestry to enter this summer’s Radnorshire Primary Cricket festival at Builth Wells Cricket Club. Organised by Sport Powys and Cricket Wales, it was a great day competing against local schools. Everyone had a fantastic time, learned some new cricket skills and two of our teams were amongst the tops scorers on the day. Thank you to Ms Welsh who came with us and supported a team, thank you to the organisers and umpires. Well done to everyone who took part.

Dosbarth Miss Powell and Dosbarth Mrs Smith celebrated Empathy Day this week with a range of experiences including live sessions, emotion maps and a #DrawWithRob.
Last week each learner in Dosbarth Mrs Smith created their own questionnaire to ask family and friends a number of questions around volunteering. As part of our research we found out how many people volunteer and the reasons why they choose to do this. We also gathered data to find out what would encourage others to volunteer in the future.
On Friday we volunteered to do some gardening over at the Hub We discussed the difference we made in half an hour and the impact short volunteering sessions could have on a community. Da iawn pawb!
As part of our topic ‘River Journeys’, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about different types of homes, including a narrow boat. The learners compared life on a narrow boat to living in a house and worked in groups to create fact files on these.
