Floating and Sinking

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have continued their learning of floating and sinking this week, exploring the question ‘Does shape matter?’ The learners carried out an experiment to see if they could make a ball of plasticine float by changing its shape. The learners showed excellent perseverance throughout this. Bendigedig Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne! 

Forest School

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.

Forest School

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been having great fun in their Forest School sessions led by Mrs Lingard. The learners have been making their own imaginative potions and this week they have been making their own paintbrushes and paint using natural resources. As you can see, the learners enjoyed getting messy!

River Animals

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about river animals and on our welly walk this week we decided to take a visit to the Harley Valley to see if we could find any for ourselves. We went on a wildlife hunt and used the magnifiers and identification sheets to name some of the tiny creatures living in the stream. We found lots of creatures, such as tadpoles, pond skaters and water spiders. 


Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been lucky enough to have another visit from Lynsey this week who introduced us to playing the drums using different hand movements. We also continued our learning of beat and rhythm. 

Welly Walk

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been out making the most of the glorious weather on our welly. This week we have linked it to our learning in our Mathematics and Numeracy lessons and went on an odd and even number hunt around the village.
