Welsh National Opera Trip

Year 5 and 6 were given an amazing opportunity to visit the Millennium Centre and listen to the Welsh National Opera perform well known pieces from Harry Potter to Encanto. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed this experience and participated in the singing with enthusiasm. This was made possible through the National Plan for Music in Powys ! After the show we went on a walk through the Bay to see the Senedd Cymru building and discussed it’s importance. The pupils all had a fab day


Continuing with our learning of the importance of Dydd Gwyl Dewi, Dosbarth Mrs Smith listened to the story and then participated in an online quiz. All learners got very excited when seeing their team name on the leader board against other Welsh Schools.

Then we ended the day by creating our own conversation animation on Scratch in club this afternoon. Learners worked well in their groups to follow simple instructions and adapt each stage as they wished with the end goal of two characters greeting each other or having a dialogue yn Gymraeg.

Random Act of Kindness Day

Last week Dosbarth Mrs Smith watched Charlie Macksey’s animation – The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. We then spoke about the importance of the messages throughout the video and why Children’s Mental Health Week is so important. We created positive quote posters to have on display in class. Today was Random Acts of Kindness Day and we spoke about the importance of being kind at all times. We ended the day by writing a kind message to someone on a heart

Mini Art Project

This half term Dosbarth Mrs Smith have been working on a mini art project

We began by researching Kyffin Williams, a famous Welsh artist from North Wales. We then moved on to a local artist Matt Drew from Crossgates. The pupils all emailed him and were very excited to have received responses to each one with some advice. Following this we went on a walk around Maesyfed to take pictures for inspiration in our work. This week the pupils have produced excellent pieces from their research. Da iawn pawb!!
