On our welly walk this week, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne went on a Welsh colour hunt around the village. We found lots of colours all around us and practised naming these in Welsh.

Last week in Dina School, Dina and Wally taught the learners in Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne about the importance of listening skills and played some games with them to help with this.
Dosbarth Miss Powell and dosbarth Mrs Smith have been learning about Earth day this week. Learners have made Earth Day posters to share their knowledge about this subject.
Pcornets and pbones
Dosbarth Miss Powell had a fantastic first session with Mrs Freeman learning to use the pcornets and pbones!
Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about measuring length in our Mathematics and Numeracy lessons and have carried out a range of activities to explore this. The learners have worked hard to ensure they are measuring accurately using a variety of materials, such as cubes, their hands and paper clips. Bendigedig everyone!
As part of our topic, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have learnt about traditional Welsh foods and have carried out a small project on cawl. We worked in groups to design our own healthy cawl linked to our learning of healthy eating, and then made each of these to find out which was the favourite. We continued our learning of emailing safely and had the opportunity to email our parents to invite them into school to taste our yummy cawl. We have also been working hard to learn the names of some of the vegetables in Welsh. On our welly walk, we then went to buy the vegetables from Sharon’s shop whilst discussing the importance of supporting local businesses and finding out where some of the vegetables come from. Finally, we made the chosen cawl for our parents to come into school to try and it was delicious!
As part of our learning about teeth, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have carried out an experiment to explore the effects of sugar on teeth. We put an egg in four different liquids, these being water, milk, coke and fruit juice, and left them for several days to see if they changed. Before carrying out the experiment we made our predictions and then reflected upon our findings.
On Tuesday, Year 3 and Year 4 invited Gladestry Church in Wales Primary School over for the day. We created artwork in Expressive Arts, participated in Health and Wellbeing with netball games and finished the day with a brilliant Louby Lou’s Storytelling workshop based on Welsh Folk Tales, Merlin & The Red Dragon & Cantre’r Gwaelod. Dosbarth Miss Burgyone also had a fantastic morning exploring Dragons & Castles and Merlin & The Red Dragon! Dydd brysur! Busy day!
