Spring Term 2018
This term our topic is 'Mini Zoo'. Our new topic will focus on animals and their habitats, writing instructions and explanations, looking at maps and globes, animal care and plants. We were visited my ZooLab and their fantastic animals including a bearded dragon, spiders and rats. We enjoyed listening to the information about the different animals and getting a closer look at the different creatures.
We are making a farm as our role play area and have enjoyed making different items for the farm including farmers, different vegetables and writing labels for the farm shop yn Gymraeg.
We will be looking at different animal habitats and what the animals need to live. We have sorted different animals into their different habitats. We have thought of different questions that we would like to find out the answers to about different farm animals. Our questions included, ' How do we get wool from a sheep?' , 'How do cows give us milk?', 'What do pigs eat?' and ' Why have sheep got numbers or colours on them?'. Gwaith bendigedig pawb!
We will continue to have 'Show and Tell' on a Monday and look forward to items of interest including books, photographs and certificates being shared. P.E. has moved to a Tuesday, we would be grateful if you could please ensure that P.E. kits are in school and all items are clearly labelled. Diolch. On Wednesdays, we have 'The Seven Wonders of Whitestone' where the children will work on a different area of the seven areas of learning to develop different skills. Tedi Twt and Tedi Twt a Doli Glwt will be given out on a Thursday and should be returned the following Tuesday. Achievement Assembly remains on a Friday, if your child has any awards, e.g. certificates or trophies, then please bring these to school on a Friday so that they can be shared with the rest of the school.
