Tanio'r Ddraig

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.’

‘We had so much fun and used lots of Welsh.’

‘The activities were amazing, I loved the Yoga.’

Christmas Entrepreneur Fayre!

Aderyn Du have been thoroughly enjoying making some fantastic things to sell at our Christmas Fayre on Friday 6th December, 2pm!  All welcome!

Stem Kitchen in Y5 and Y6

On Wednesday 9th October we enjoyed our ‘Stem Science’ day as a school.  In Year 5 and Year 6 we carried out some investigations from ‘Stem Kitchen’- they were great fun!  Our focus was ‘Materials and their Properties’.

 

Playful Play!

Y5 children have had an amazing few sessions with Ben Webb, learning about ‘Playful Play’ and children’s rights.

They now have the skills to lead play within the playground as ‘Play Leaders’ 🙂

Word Aware!

Word Aware- Teaching vocabulary across the day, across the curriculum!

Why Word aware?

Vocabulary levels are strong predictors of later literacy skills.

Without a good vocabulary, children struggle to understand what they are taught, to express how they feel, to manage social situations and resolve conflicts.

If a child is in the lowest 20% in vocabulary knowledge at age 5, and you want them to move to an average level within three years, they would have to learn 20 new words a day, every day, for each of those three years!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Literacy Enrichment morning in KS2!
