Welcome to the Autumn Term!
Croeso i Dymor Yr Hydref
Welcome back everybody! It's great to have you all back in school this term, we have really missed you.
Our school topic for the Autumn Term is "What Matters To Me" and our emphasis in Upper Key Stage 2 is "Our World Matters." We will be focusing on the environment and the challenges facing our planet. Pupils will learn about issues such as climate change, pollution, deforestation and the conservation of endangered animals. We will be learning how WE can make a difference, and how we can lessen our impact on the environment. We value the pupils' thoughts and ideas, and they are actively involved when planning lessons and activities. They take responsibility for making choices about what, and how they learn and explore.
Extra Useful Info:
P.E. - Thursday.
Pupils are not currently able to bring P.E. kit into school, but we encourage them to wear appropriate sports kit to school on a Thursday. Our lessons will be outside when the weather permits, so please ensure your child is wearing trainers and joggers/leggings.
Pupils are encouraged to take reading books home daily to read to a parent or guardian. Regular reading improves vocabulary and language skills, helps to improve concentration and also teaches children about the world around them. Please take 5 mins to listen to your child read whenever you can. It really will make a difference

We really enjoyed learning some photography skills as part of our outdoor learning day. We focused on zooming in and also the effect of light on objects in our natural world. We then used edit tools on the iPad to create some fantastic results. There are definitely some budding photographers in Dosbarth Willow 👍
