We have completed a range of exciting and engaging activities as part of our ‘Safer Internet Day’.
We started off the day discussing ‘identity’ and completing an activity about our identity and the things that make us special and unique.
We welcomed PC Ainsworth who talked to us about online safety.
We read an interesting story called ‘Digiduck’s Famous Friend’ which demonstrated in a safe and interesting way, that people online may not always be who they say they are, and that ‘friends’ made solely online are still strangers.
We also we talked about online activities that make pupils happy.
On Thursday 23rd January 2020, Miss Davies and four very enthusiastic Criw Cymraeg members attended a very exciting day in Builth Wells.
The day gave us a range of ideas and activities to implement within our school to help us to fulfil the requirements for the language Charter. We carried out the following workshops; ‘Mewn Cymeriad’ a show to explain the Welsh Culture and Language, ‘Mr Phormula’ a Welsh Beatboxer, a Welsh Yoga session and a Welsh music session.
This is what the children thought about the day;
‘It was the best day ever!’
‘I can’t believe Mr Phormula makes all of that music by just using his voice.’
This week Mrs Davies, Mrs Blower’s mum, has been into class to talk to us about how Knighton has changed since she was a little girl. She showed us some old photos, including the old primary school that used to be where the Offa’s Dyke Centre is now.
Unfortunately, we were unable to walk to the Church this afternoon due to the weather. However, Reverent Petra and Helen very kindly came into class to discuss a Bug Hotel and what it will be used for.
Over the next few weeks, we will be collecting all of the resources we need to make the Bug Hotel.
We are all very excited to be making a Bug Hotel for the St Edwards Churchyard.
Many thanks to Mrs Davies for coming into talk to us today about how Knighton has changed over the years. She talked about what Knighton was like in the past, the new roads that have been built and how shops have changed.
We listened carefully and asked Mrs Davies questions.
We have made some bird feeders to make sure all of the birds have something to eat over this cold month. We have hung the bird feeders in the Quad, so we are all able to watch the birds enjoy their food.
The pigeon from New York is worried about his relatives in Wales. He has heard that it is Winter and he is worried that they won’t have enough food to eat. He needed our help to make bird feeders to hang outside so that his Welsh friends and relatives would have enough food to eat.
We used our reading skills to read and follow instructions to make our bird feeders and we have hung them outside in the playground.
