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!

Hay Festival

Dosbarth Miss Powell and Dosbarth Mrs Smith had a fantastic day at the Hay Festival. We went to talks from Dr Ranj, Bear Grylls and Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock.

Thank you to Mrs Dinsdale who applied for a transport grant that enabled this trip to be FREE for all learners!

Narrow Boat Life

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.  

Why Rivers are Important

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have been learning about why rivers are important and what we can do to protect them. The learners worked in groups to create posters on how to help save our rivers to share in an assembly with the rest of the school. Bendigedig Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne, you’ve highlighted some important actions we can take to help protect our rivers! 

Welly Walk

On our welly walk this week, Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne visited Harley Valley to see the stream. We were lucky enough to have the sunshine, so we took our drink and snack! It was a lovely morning out with some great discussions about the stream.
