The children have been busy looking at lots of different materials this week and thinking about how they look and feel! They then used their senses to describe different objects that we find around school and presented their work using PicCollage!
This week we began with our science investigation - Finding out which material would be best for the Three Little Pigs house! Last week we made some houses out of Lego, sugar cubes, paper and marshmallows!
We had so much fun seeing if the 'wolf' (fan) would blow the houses down!
The children were also wondering what would happen if it started to rain! Would the piggies be dry? So we poured some water over them too! We couldn't believe how the sugar cubes dissolved and the paper went all soggy!
It was so much fun!!
This week has been our special 'International Week'. We have been focusing on Uganda and have loved finding out about where it is in relation to Wales, what their flag is like compared to ours and we have also thought about the difference between their lives and ours.
We also looked at refugees as lots often flee to Uganda for safety. The children thought about how brave the children are to have to leave their homes and move to another country and this made us want to think of times that we have been brave too.
Here are some videos of us talking about times that we have been brave and also some pictures of us enjoying our busy jobs!
This week we have been reading the story Bedd Gelert.
The children have loved the story and so we decided to base our activities this week on the story!
The children wanted to make Gelert out of play dough, draw welsh mountains (which they looked at on the internet), and ordered the story in Welsh.
We have had lots of fun this week thinking about different voices characters would use in our story books! This has helped our expression when reading too! Here are some of our videos that we have created using the App - ChatterPix!
What a wonderful start to the new year we have had this week!
The children and all the teachers would like to wish you all a...Happy New Year!
To celebrate, the children have been learning a traditional Welsh song.
Blwyddyn newydd dda i chi
ac i bawb sydd yn y tŷ;
Dyna yw'n dymuniad ni,
Blwyddyn newydd dda i chi!
Happy new year to you
and to everyone in the house;
That is our wish,
Happy new year to you!
