Lead Creative School Project – Skylarks

The children in the Skylarks class have been enjoying their creative sessions with Cassandra.

We started the project off by exploring the story of wool as a material. Cassandra showed us her Blue-Faced Leicester sheep and how to do carding, spinning wool, weaving and dying wool with natural dyes such as Alkanet, Chamomile and Madder.

We learnt how to finger knit, do wet felting, needle felting and weave wool and willow. We explored various natural materials to create our own characters using wood, clay and wool.

Our aim is to create a puppet theatre with puppets that move to be able to tell stories such as the wonderful stories from the Mabinogion which we have been reading.

We are hoping to share our creations with parents and friends after we finish the project so keep your eye out on the letters. SAM_9252SAM_9259 SAM_9263 SAM_9352 SAM_9375 SAM_9384 SAM_9401 SAM_9559 SAM_9564 SAM_9569 SAM_9572 SAM_9616 SAM_9622

Skylarks and Wrens trip to Tudor Merchant House

To nicely round up our topic of the Great Fire of London, we visited the Tudor Merchant house in Tenby.

We travelled by train which was very exciting indeed and then walked through the 5 arches to the town centre.

Mistress Angela and Master Greg have welcomed us to the tudor house and told us lots of interesting facts about life in the 1500’s. One of our favourite facts was about the colour of fruit oranges, as in tudor times they didn’t know of the term orange, so they called it a red yellow.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would recommend anyone who hasn’t been to go and visit the Tudor Merchant House, or to come and read some of our recounts of our visit.

PCSO Firework Safety / Diogelwch tân gwyllt

Manorbier School were lucky enough to have a wonderful visit from our local PCSO team in regards to Keeping Safe during Firework displays.

The children showed a great depth of knowledge about how to keep safe and how to inform others if they felt safety was an issue.

It was a practical session and was certainly one to remember!
