Dosbarth Ehedydd/Skylarks Class

Skylarks have had a great start to the term, they have all settled well and are really enjoying the ‘Ourselves’ Project this term. We will post some photos each week to keep you up to date with the wonderful work they are doing.

Here are some children admiring their wonderful ‘Colour Monster’ work.

Gwaith Da Ehedydd!


  • Leaf Monsters (we have been looking at the different leaves and seeds that are starting to fall down on the school field. We have identified several trees. Did you know that the tree with conkers is called Horse Chestnut and that the acorns grow on the Oak tree?Image preview
  • Shapes – Reception children have been naming different 2d shapes. How many triangles can you see in Esther’s mermaid?Image preview
  • Number bonds to 10 (We collected some leaves to help us learn our number bonds to 10. Can you think of another way to make 10?

We have celebrated Outdoor Classroom day by lots of fun activities. We revisited our work of identifying the trees that grow on our school ground and explored what creatures lay underneath the dead leaves. We found slugs of different shapes and sizes and even some eggs! Can you guess what creature laid these eggs?

Did you know that you can learn Maths, Literacy and Art outside too? We have looked at symmetry, odd and even numbers, halving and doubling.

Miss Kopecka also set us different Pumpkin challenges where we learned what is inside a pumpkin, counted the seeds of a pumpkin by grouping, making pumpkin soup in the mud kitchen, describing pumpkins and measuring them. Do you think that pumpkin will float or sink in the water?
