    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.

Our volcano experiment

 We ended our day with a ride on Triceratops!

   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.

Mrs May.

The children have been learning to use a 100 square to help them with their number work. 

     This is me display

Each group drew around their chosen model for our display. 

The children discussed what materials they could use to decorate the body they had drawn around to make it look like their chosen model. 
They used a variety of fabrics, and craft materials and worked well together to create their body for our class display. 

Decorating our names.

The children used mirrors to look at their faces.

The children had fun labelling as many body parts they could think of.

 Our models were excellent at staying still.

        SPRING TERM 2021

    ๐ŸŽHappy New Year Dosbath Apple๐ŸŽ 

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are safe and well. Normally it would be the start of our Spring Term but,unfortunately we will not be able to be in school for a while so we will be switching to remote learning from January 6th.  All learning will be done on Google Classroom. The children took their passwords home before Christmas. If you have any problems logging in there is a short tutorial on the school website in the Parents section under Home Schooling Help.Work completed can be turned in on Google Classroom or done on paper and brought back into school when we return. It is important that all children try to engage as much as possible .

Any corncerns or questions please email me . My email address is mrsmay@llwyncrwn.co.uk

Thank you

Mrs May.
