Welcome to our class/ Croeso i ddosbarth Aderyn Y Pal.

Sept Half term 2017

The puffins have been having a Vikingly good half term so far, with explorations into the weaponry and battles of the Vikings. They have focused on boat constructions and through cooperative learning activities the puffins have created a model of a Viking boat and proudly displayed it in the centre of the learning space.

The puffins have also explored using aspects of nature to create mythical monsters from the deep, using leaf collages. The Puffins are looking forward to exploring the Gods and legends intertwined into the Viking culture.

Puffins have looked at forces in motion and have experimented with different forces and their impact upon model cars.

This week Puffins have started to explore the historic nature of the the Anglo Saxons and the Normans EPIC BATTLE OF HASTINGS!

We have looked at the Bayeux Tapestry and even examined some of the attire that men would wear into battle.

We made shields, bow and arrows and spears. We crafted wooden ships and armies. It was an adventurous look back at times gone by.

We looked at reporting from the Battlefield, what went on on that fateful day and could it of ended differently? Was there cheating? Did the Normans deserve to win? Did they really need to have a battle? These were a few of the questions we investigated.

What do you think?

Can you remember the date of the Battle?

Year 4’s started the term with a fantastic day taking part in the Welson Challenge.  The challenge day which is held annually, is an opportunity for children to take part in a day of exciting science activities. The event organised by Darwin Science and hosted by Professor Campbell, a word-renown pioneering researcher into bioluminescence, saw the children competing against two other schools in several areas – bioluminescence, microscopes, pond-dipping and woodland observation walk.  The children were full of questions and thoroughly enjoyed the day but were especially delighted to be voted this year’s winners!  An amazing day!

St Davids Day.

The Puffins class had a tremendous day celebrating all things welsh.

For our performance in the concert we told the story of Gelert, as we have been looking at myths and legends we thought it a very fitting topic.

We wore lots of red and were patriotic all day with singing and lots of welsh language practice. Da iawn Puffins!!!
