Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about George Seurat. To begin with, the learners practised and experimented with using pointillism before moving onto creating their own final pieces of art linked to our theme of ‘rivers’. The learners have created some amazing artwork that they would like to share with you all!

As part of our learning of floating and sinking, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been exploring how boats float and have designed their own boat using junk materials. The learners thought carefully about which materials to use for the different features of their boat and explained their choices. They then followed their design to make their boat and tested it in the water to see if it floated or sunk. Following on from this, the learners have reflected upon their boat design using ‘Skitch’ on the iPad and have then added their improvements to re-test them, for example some learners recognised that cardboard needed to be replaced with a waterproof material as it went soggy and started to sink! Everyone did a great job throughout the mini project and there was some great thinking and reflecting going on, well done everyone!
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!
Dosbarth Miss Powell had a fantastic Konga session in Health and Wellbeing this morning. Huge thank you to Laura Jane fitness for visiting our school again!
Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne had a great day at Elan Valley. We went on a minibeast sculpture hunt through the woods, went inside the dam and finished with a play at the park. We talked about why the dams are here and their history, why they are important and all about river animals.
Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have had great fun at Forest Schools today led by ‘Branching Out’. The learners engaged within a range of activities, such as making butterflies using a variety of tools and materials, den building and being imaginative within the mud kitchen. We were even lucky enough to have popcorn around the fire… yum yum!
