🌼 Summer Term 2022 🌼
Our whole school topic this term is
‘Iechyd da’ and has a focus of health and well-being.
We will be using the book Babaroo the Alien and the magic of Healthy Food to help us learn more about what foods we need to keep us healthy.
Alongside this we will be learning and finding out some facts about Space.
Reading the fabulous Julia Donaldson book The Smeds and The Smoos to help us learn that its ok to be different.
During this very busy term we will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with lots of fun activities and having a Sports Day
so we will be concentrating as part of our topic on how we can get fit! 🏃🏻♀️🏃♂️
Dosbarth Apple dressed up as astronauts and aliens and thought about what they might say to each other.
📝 NEWS REPORT📝
This week Dosbarth Apple found a strange object outside their classroom door.
On closer inspection and after a lot of discussion they all agreed it was a small silver rocket that must have crashed landed!
To their surprise inside was a small Alien dressed in a spacesuit. Once they had helped the Alien out of the rocket they tried talking to it to find out if it was hurt but then realised it might not understand our language.
Jack came up with the idea of trying sign language to say hello as we have been learning some sign language from Carys and William who go to Mrs Arnold’s class once a week to learn a sign then come back to class to teach the rest of Dosbarth Apple 👍🍎
Dosbarth Apple had great fun this week improving their fitness jumping over the hurdles. Da iawn pawb ⭐️
Dosbarth Apple 🍎 having fun at playtime.
This week Dosbarth Apple are learning about time.
We first held a minute silence to find out how long a minute feels.
The children then worked in their groups to think of things they could do in a minute. After a lot of discussion each group came up with 2 suggestions.Then everyone wrote down their guess.
Enjoying maths outside.
Dosbarth Apple collected natural materials to show how they could work out the number problem how many more? Da iawn pawb you worked well in your pairs. ⭐️
Outdoor Learning Week
Dosbarth Apple had fun looking for the hidden coloured eggs then working out what Dino City landmark they spelt out.
Cardiff Museum Virtual Dinosaur Workshop
Dosbarth Apple were lucky to spend the afternoon with Louise from the dinosaur department of Cardiff Museum.
She was very impressed with their dinosaur knowledge and their excellent questions.
🌟👏🏼Da iawn pawb🌟👏🏼
They listened to the story of Albie the Adventurer and loved joining in to make the sounds.
📚 WORLD BOOK DAY📚

Next in our DT project we looked at using pivots and levers.
We used our knowledge to make red dragons for St. David’s Day with movable heads and tails.
Our Design Technology project this term is to make a moving picture.
We looked at lots of different books that had moving parts and worked out how they moved.
First Dosbarth Apple learnt how to make a slider mechanism before having a go themselves. Everyone tried hard and were really pleased with their results.
This week we had fun painting our hands to make a Handasaurus.
We then added some googly eyes and wrote our name and added
We labelled Triceratops and our model pupil to find if we had any body parts the same as dinosaurs 🦕🦖
This week Dosbarth Apple 🍎 have been sorting and grouping dinosaurs.
The children sorted them into 4 groups:
Horns , long necks, body armour and 2 legs.
Let’s Explore- Dinosaurs
Dosbarth Apple had a special visitor to class today to help us start our Let’s explore Dinosaurs topic.
First the children went on a virtual tour of the dinosaur display at the National History Museum. They really enjoyed seeing the dinosaur skeletons.
The children made their own binoculars as part of their explorer’s equipment. They thought about what colour would be best. They decided that green and brown would be good camouflage.
The children chose 2 small dinosaurs and worked together to make a suitable habitat for them with all the natural materials they had collected.
We ended our day with a ride on Triceratops!
Spring term 2022
Happy New Year everyone. We hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your family.
Monday 10th January - Topic Immersion Day
Our whole school topic this term is 'Let's explore'.
We will be having an immersion day on Monday to launch our exciting new topic.
Please can children come to school dressed as an explorer -
there is no need to go out and buy anything for this simply get creative with things you already have at home.
Here are some ideas for you:
Wear cream, brown, khaki coloured clothing.
Wear a cap/hat covered in leaves etc.
Make a badge, compass.
*We will be making binoculars in school so please could they bring in 1 kitchen roll if possible.
* Please could you also help your child collect a bag of natural materials over the weekend e.g. leaves, moss, sticks grass and small stones for us to use on Monday .
Thank you for your continued support.
Dosbarth Apple 🍎 have worked hard and are all ready for their Christmas Holiday.
We hope you and all your families have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Stay safe. See you all in January 2022.
