We have had another ‘wowderful week at Barry Island Primary School. This week was STEM week. We have seen our children working alongside children from Palmerston Primary and Llandough Primary to compete and complete in a set of exciting STEM activities planned by our wonderful teaching team.
Dosbarth Celyn visited Porthkerry Park this week, and thoroughly enjoyed learning through adventurous outdoor active and experiential activities. The children all had a wonderful time and behaved beautifully. Da iawn, pawb.
Year 1 had a brilliant time learning through a variety of exciting and interesting activities this week. The children turned the class into BIPS Bakery! They have performed experiments, researched how bread is made, baked and tasted bread.
Monday is Sport Relief Day. The whole school will perform the Sport Relief Mile by completing 22 laps of the yard. Children and staff will be performing the walk during the day so please ensure that everybody comes to school in Sports Kit and trainers.
We would like to thank Dave and Nick who visited Year 4, 5 and 6 this week to deliver STEM workshops. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Bloodhound SSC, Tele communications and diamond mining! We hope that one of our BIPS superstars has been inspired to become an engineer.
This week saw our Eistedfodd celebrations. Due to the snow the performances were slightly delayed but nonetheless enjoyable. We would like to thank everyone for the costumes and competition entries and our fantastic staff for rearranging all the activities.
