Connected to their topic ‘out of the egg’, year one are hatching live chick eggs.

As it was so popular last year, we are setting up a live stream so that you can watch the hatching from home. As soon as we have the address we will share it.

Here are some photos taken this morning. The eggs are not due to start hatching until tomorrow.

Linked to their topic work, year one have been finding out about dragons around the world.

The aborigines live in Australia. They believed in the Rainbow Serpent which was part dragon and part snake. The Rainbow Serpent was part of the Aborigine creation story and gave the plants and and the animals and taught them how to respect each other. They also believed in a dragon called a Bunyip who lived in swamps. 

Here are some Aborigine dot paintings, created by the children in year one.

The PTA would like to thank parents for supporting the Mother’s Day Gift Sale

So far the sale has raised a fantastic £280 which will go towards the trim trail and story den.

More importantly, the children had a fantastic time purchasing their gifts for their special someone.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT SALE – 20TH MARCH

Just a quick reminder from the PTA that they will be selling Mother’s Day gifts in school on Thursday 20th March.

If you would like your child to take part, please could they bring in maximum of £3 in a named envelope which they should give to their teacher.

Each class teacher will then take it in turns to bring their children down to the shop to purchase their lovely gift for Mother’s Day.

Thank you for supporting our PTA.

This half term in Year 3 the children have been  learning about volcanoes. The children are investigating and finding out about eruptions, different types of volcanoes and their impacts on people and the environment. In class they had great fun using Papier Mache to make these volcano models.

Linked to their topic ‘Out of the egg’, the children in Year 1 have been learning about The Welsh Dragon  or as it is known in Wales, Y Ddraig Goch (“the red dragon”)  which appears on the national flag of Wales. They then painted these fantastic paintings of the dragon.
