Stargazers!

What a fantastic start to the New Year! We have settled back into school after our Christmas break and have been busy bees!  We have started a fantastic topic, ‘Stargazers!’ We have been fascinated by this topic so far and all the children have found it really interesting! So far we have researched space, answered tricky numeracy problem solving questions, interrogated a database and have written a report on a planet. We have also completed fun challenges everyday so you can check these out on our SeeSaw accounts! There’s plenty more to find out when we come back after half term and we can’t wait!

The year 5&6’s went on their fun filled residential trip to Margam Park! We had an amazing time and enjoyed all the activities! We were able to go on a beautiful walk in the sunshine, find and categorise bugs, go pond dipping, complete a survival day and do lots of fun science activities! It’s an amazing experience for the children and we can’t wait to go next year already!

We hope everyone has a lovely half term! Don’t forget to keep up to date with what is going on in class with ‘SeeSaw’ and ‘Class Dojo.

1940’s Museum Trip!

We had a fantastic day at the 1940’s Swansea Museum! We traveled back in time and walked the 1940’s streets dressed as children from World War Two! We were able to find out lots of interesting facts by completing the quiz and watching a documentary.

Egyptian Centre Trip – Year 5&6

What a perfect way to start our new and exciting topic, Pharaohs! We visited Swansea University’s Egyptian Center and we thoroughly enjoyed as we delved deep into the topic in a fun and interesting way. We can’t wait to discover more as we have already learnt how the Egyptians weighed hearts, how they dressed and how they measured.

Frozen Kingdom

We’ve had a great half term! We continued to delve deeper into our topic, ‘Frozen Kingdom’ and we have written wonderful stories. We were then able to write brilliant dialogues to progress our stories further. We also completed our book of the term, ‘The Ice Monster’ by David Walliams and we have thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

This term we celebrated ‘Welsh Week’ and year 5 and 6 were able to recreate one of Valerie Ganz’s pieces. They created wonderful sketches of welsh miners. They also were able to write a poem on their chosen subject and presented their poem to the class.

This term we have had lots of exciting days, such as: our federated netball and football tournament, Easter bingo, Red Nose Day, Wizards league, fire safety talks, first aid training and our Afan Argoed trip.

Please continue to keep up to date with what is going on in class with Class Dojo and SeeSaw.Lots of information is also on the school website which is updated regularly. I hope you have a wonderful Easter break!
