We have been learning about the Celts. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Castell Henllys where we experienced life as a Celt, making flatbread and exploring wattle and daub.
Back in school, we practised weaving in our outdoor area. We visited the Mission Gallery where we used wool and ribbon in our weaving workshop.
We have also been learning about Welsh tales this term. Our favourite is the story of Yr Afanc, the lake monster. We visited Fendrod Lake, but didn't see Yr Afanc. We even designed our own lake monster, as well as using Monet's 'Waterlilies' to inspire our lake paintings.
Christmas has been a very busy time in our class.
We performed 'White Christmas' in Makaton sign for our parents, and have made Christmas cards and gifts for our families.
Our topic this term is Travelling Around, where we have been finding out about different types of transport.
We visited the local area in the minibus and found pictures of old and new buses.
Learning about bicycles was fun, and everyone enjoyed reading the story of 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels'
We even designed a new bicycle for Mrs Armitage!
We learnt to program our BeeBot and we did a traffic survey, to see how many cars, lorries and buses went around the roundabout.
