Welly Walk

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about living and non-living things and had fun on a welly walk this week searching for these around the village. We found lots of living things, such as the trees, flowers and animals, and lots of non-living things like bins, cars and houses. Great searching everyone! 

Stick Weaving

Dosbarth Miss Powell have had a creative morning, stick weaving! It was a fantastic experience and learners have all created either a caterpillar, or a snake to take home.. Beware!

We would like to express our huge thanks to Sue, (and her assistant Sian) for the resources, the time and the support. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

Visit from Sophie

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been lucky enough to have a visit from Sophie this week who spent some time living in India. Prior to Sophie’s visit, in class we have learnt about what questions are, why we ask them and how to write them. The learners created some brilliant questions of their own to ask Sophie so that they could find out more information about India and about her experience of living there. Some of the learners worked as a group to create some questions together and other learners typed their own questions up on the computer. We would like to say a big thank you to Sophie for very kindly coming in!

Caribbean Dancing

The learners had a great morning participating within a dance workshop today from ‘Dance Days’. The older learners experienced Caribbean dancing to support their learning of Windrush. The learners engaged well and had some great moves. Well done everybody!

Daal

Learners in Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been busy this week learning about traditional Indian foods and how India has impacted on food available in the United Kingdom. We have read the story’ Bilal Cooks Daal’ and then worked together to make some of our own red lentil dahl to taste. We talked about and smelt the spices and observed the changes in the ingredients when they were heated. 

Special Buildings

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about the Taj Mahal. Some of the learners co-constructed their own success criteria based on the features of the Taj Mahal, to then use to create their own special buildings with their chosen materials.  The younger learners also did a brilliant job of constructing their own special buildings using various materials they found around the classroom and outdoors.
