Arthog 2018

All the Year 6 children are now fully back into the swing of the new academic year.  It started in the best possible way, with a visit to Arthog.  All of the children had a great time on each of the activities, working as a team and preparing themselves for the challenges that lie ahead.  All of the staff who accompanied them from school and the Arthog instructors were incredibly impressed with not only their behaviour but also the way in which they supported each other throughout the week.  Please see the photos below.  A great time was had by all.

Chester Zoo Trip

On Friday 15th June, Class 3, Class 4 and the Year 5s from Class 5 all went on a trip to Chester Zoo. It was a really enjoyable day and each group also attended a workshop related to our current science topic of animals and humans. The pictures below are from the ‘Survival in the Wild’ workshop the Year 5s attended. This focussed on how animals are adapted for survival and food chains. Some of the objects the children got to touch, which can be seen below, were confiscated by customs agents and donated to the zoo.

The trip was such a success, we hope to repeat it in a couple of years time.

Class 5 Enterprise Week

A huge thank you to everybody who supported our stallholders during last week.  The class 5 children have raised just over £600.  Which, I am sure that you will agree, is an amazing achievement.  As promised, the money will be going on a script for the end of year play; a leavers gift for the school and the remaining will be put towards the end of year trip.  It was such a huge success that we have already decided to run it next year.  Well done to all of class 5 who made last week so successful.

Street Child

Our class text for this half term is ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty.  Have a look at Class 5’s freeze frames depicting the part in the book where the Jarvis family is evicted.

Bryn Offa Athletics Afternoon

Last week, Bryn Offa year six pupils took a break from their SAT examinations to lead an athletic master class for the pupils from classes 3,4 and 5.  The coaching skills on display were incredibly impressive and all pupils had a very enjoyable afternoon.

Thank you Year 6 for all of your hard work.

Street Child

As part of our new guided reading initiative, Class 5 have been looking at the book ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty.  Today, the children have been creating freeze frames to tell  the story at the point where the Jarvis family are kicked out of their house and onto the streets.

Treflach Farm visit

Currently, year 5 are spending a day each month working towards their John Muir Award with the Wildlife Trust. Yesterday they had a fantastic time visiting Treflach Farm. They saw some of the farm animals, did some pond dipping and even created lovely charcoal drawings of the surrounding landscape.

Reading Buddies

Classes 3 and 5 started a new reading initiative last week.  This involves the children working together and listening to each other read.  All children involved are really enjoying the experience.
