Another very busy week across our school. Here are some snippets…
This week we have been celebrating ‘All About Wales’ week. The children have been immersed in all aspects of welsh culture and language. They have been exploring Welsh history, art, literature, myths & legends, drama, song, and of course the language. Ardderchog!
Dosbarth Helygen had their WOW Day on Monday for their exciting new topic ‘Disaster Zones’. The children experienced a full emergency evacuation and had to build their own temporary survival shelters. They also focused on trust, using listening skills to complete a guided rope challenge! The children also explored the roles of international aid workers and The Red Cross organisation. The grand finale involved the children challenged to make an erupting volcano and investigate the science behind chemical reactions!
Dosbarth Bedwen also had their WOW Day this week, ‘Gallery’. The children explored the work of the famous Welsh artist Kyffin Williams and also designed and created their own Celtic Art sculptures! Da iawn pawb.
Parent Consultations will take place on Tuesday 11th, Wednesday 12th, and Thursday 13thFebruary. Appointments will issued by the class teacher in the usual way.
Reception had a wonderful community walk this week ending up at Whitmore & Jacksons who gave the children a fantastic welcome. Diolch!
