Spring Term 2018

This week we have been busy using the internet on iPads and computers to research different woodland animals. We have been using the information to create fact files about each animal.
  



This term our topic is The Enchanted Woodland. To start our topic we talked about how we should behave to keep ourselves safe when walking in the woods and how to protect the environment. We then visited Victoria Park to look at different trees, leaves and plants. We saw tree stumps where trees had been cut down and guessed that it was because the trees had a disease. We also saw new trees that had been planted. They were much shorter and thinner than the older trees. We even saw a tree that had been blown down by the wind!
          


   
We had such a shock to find fairy dust, wands and fairies living in the woods!
    

 
Autumn Term 2017

We had a fabulous afternoon for our Christmas party today. We all went into the Nursery for a dance, ate our party food and played party games.

 

    


 
We loved playing Musical Statues and Musical Bumps with our friends.
    




We welcomed a very important visitor to Darrenlas this afternoon, Father Christmas!  
We sang him his favourite Christmas songs. He knew that we have been amazing in school recently so he brought us all an early Christmas present.







A big well done to the children who were absolutely amazing in our Christmas show, The Smallest Angel. They sang beautifully and spoke so clearly. Some children even took on extra lines because children were absent and you would never have known. They have done themselves and our school proud. Llongyfarchiadau, pawb!

We are looking forward to our visit from Santa, Christmas dinner and our class Christmas party next week.


 

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from Emma from Astro Cymru today. We watched 3d animations of space, looked at meteorites and learned that meteorites have a black layer on the outside from being on fire as they travel through space, and that they contain iron so are magnetic. We also learned about Sir Isaac Newton who discovered the force of gravity. In the afternoon we learned about the different parts of a rocket and why they need to be aerodynamic. We also made our own rockets, complete with a nose cone and fins, then went out into the yard to launch them. Children thoroughly enjoyed the day and learned so many facts about space.
     


There was great excitment in school today, when an alien spaceship crash-landed into our yard! How on Earth did it happen? Where did it come from? Who was in the spaceship and where have they gone?
    
 

 
 
This term children have decided to study the Cornerstones topic Moon Zoom, learning all about space. If you have any stories or resources at home that may be useful, please send them in. Diolch!
 
We will be completing different activities online using the Hwb website. If you can practise logging on and exploring the different packages and tools available, children will be able to use Hwb with greater confidence and independence in school. If you have any problems regarding passwords or logging in please let us know. Thanks.
