We were very lucky to have the opportunity to visit the recycling centre where we were able to see where all our rubbish goes, Swansea council were very helpful and happy to help us learn. We were able to see different things that can be recycled such as plastic, cardboard, batteries, paints and garden waste amongst others.

                             Visit to the Environment Centre

 

We had a great learning experience at the Swansea Environment Centre where we found out about environmentally friendly alternative products, we saw socks made out of bamboo and wooden toothbrushes. We also saw many refillable products that we can use in the home to save buying plastic and found out about how to recycle toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, bread bags and crisp packets.

This term we have made the most of the wonderful weather and explored the outdoors. We are reading the Gruffalo story and enjoying our sessions at Coed Clase, we have been searching for characters in the book and finding out about the woodland they live in.

 

We collected things we found in the forest to help us learn and relax, we printed, painted, cut, counted and made transient art.

 

We visited Perriswood in the Gower who taught us all about owls, we even got to hold them and watch them fly.

 

We looked at real birds nests, and made our own, we had help from the RSPB to discover the minibeasts that live in Coed Clase.

 

We had fun making log pile houses, bird feeders and bug hotels to help animals living in our Wild Wood (Coed Clase).

 

We enjoyed making and tasting owl decorated pancakes and roasted fox sandwiches (Ham)

The Celts 

 

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.

Welsh Tales 

 

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.

Travelling Around - Spring Term 2019

 

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.
