In preparation for our assembly, please could you help your child practise the following song. I will also give the children part of a story which they will be reading out. They will be able to have their sheet with them during the assembly if needed.
Tales of Wales!
We heard great stories from Wales and even got to join in! We love our yearly visit from Pandemonium Theatre!
We began our exciting science experiment today! As a class we had a vote on which materials we would like to bury.
Plastic - a chocolate wrapper
Food - a pear
Paper - a piece from out scrap paper draw
Seeds - Sam D had some melon seeds he wanted to plant
Following that, we predicted what we think might happen to the materials over time. The children came up with lots of great ideas!
This led us to discuss recycling and land fills.
We can't wait to have a little check up on the materials in about 3 weeks time!
It has been great to see all your Mummies and Daddies this week at parents evening and be able to tell them how super I think you all are!
Mrs Lincoln-Jones loves hearing how proud your families are of you all and I know the children enjoyed reading their messages from last nights parents evening today...as will the children tomorrow from tonight’s parents evening!
We will send their sheets home tomorrow as I am sure you will love to put them somewhere safe and look back at them as you get bigger!
We have also been super busy so far this week exploring the map of the world (Y byd 🌍).
We have looked in particular at the different countries that grow the fair trade foods we explored last week!
Mrs Lincoln-Jones was super impressed at the children’s map reading skills and their ability to transfer information from one style of a map to another!
Super duper! 👍👍
What a busy week so far! We have enjoyed creating our pancakes by following our recipes which we ordered last week. There was so much maths involved including measure, quarters, halving and money!
We have also been tasting lots of different fair trade chocolate. A big thank you to Ameilia's Daddy who has provided the children with fair-trade orange juice and different fair-trade chocolate to try!
Following tasting the chocolate, the children wrote some fantastic welsh sentences describing which they liked and didn't like. They were even able to tell me why!
Dw i'n hoffi siocled pinc achos mae'n flasus.
Dw i ddim yn hoffi siocled tywyll achos mae'n chwerw!
Mrs Lincoln-Jones is super proud of how wonderful the children's Welsh language is! The advantages of being bilingual are amazing and it is so lovely to listen to the children conversing in Welsh with each other!
During P.E we had lots of fun!
We practised our rolling skills by creating a path using beanbags and foam squares.
The children started out by making a path with the beanbags and they had to roll the ball between them. Then to make it more of a challenge, they had to create a bridge to roll the ball on...but it couldn't fall off!
I bet the children will be super duper at bowling now!
We had so much fun in ‘Ysgol Coedwig’ today!!
The children enjoyed splashing in the puddles and used skills learnt so far this week to create some amazing MUD PANCAKES!!
They worked in small teams which consisted of some children in Class 5 & 6. They had to think about each step by using time ordering words and bossy verbs when giving each other instructions.
Their imaginations ran wild - using stones for eggs, grass for flour and of course muddy puddle water for milk!
They looked good enough to eat...ish!
As you will see - we love having the chance to get muddy during Forest school, therefore we kindly ask that you send the children into school on these days with their uniform and school shoes to change into after the session.
Happy Shrove Tuesday!
We are having a very ‘pancake’ themed week this week! Yum!
The children have been busy ordering instructions on how to make pancakes - which we hope will help them next week as they will be measuring the ingredients and cooking some yummy pancakes for their teachers...we might share!!!
They have also been using their dictionary skills to create a shopping list so Mrs Lincoln-Jones knows what ingredients she needs to buy in preperation!
Today we had a lovely day celebrating St David's day!
The children all looked wonderful in their colourful clothes and costumes.
(Thank you very much for all the effort you always put in.)
The children finished writing their stories all about St David and completed lots of St David day themed activities in the challenge areas.
We enjoyed learning the Welsh National Anthem and performing it to the rest of Foundation Phase. (WOW!)
We all are very proud of how well we learnt it and can't wait to sing along with everyone else during the rugby match on Saturday!
COME ON WALES!!!
LLONGYFARCHIADAU EWLOE GREEN!
CONGRATULATIONS EWLOE GREEN!
We have been awarded EXCELLENT in all 5 key areas!
To celebrate, the children wanted to watch a movie and have popcorn and sweeties!
We were super lucky too as Mrs Dyas brought each year a cake to share!!
Diolch Mrs Dyas!
In science we have been exploring electricity and finding out what objects are powered by - mains, battery or both. We have also been playing with toys and have been exploring what electricity can produce - sound, light, movement and heat!
In forest schools today we have been exploring how a variety of materials move in the wind (typically there wasn't any wind today)! So we used our imagination skills and created some great stories! We have also started to talk about how wind can produce electricity!
Today James and Owen came into our class to show us an electrical circuit.
We were very surprised to see what happened when we closed the circuit.
Some of us were even allowed to have a go!
Thank you Owen and James for sharing your special surprise!
It's been a wonderful first week back! The children have enjoyed getting started with our new topic 'Livewires', and have learnt a traditional, welsh new years song!
