Summer Term 2021 

ROMAN BANQUET TEA LIGHTS

THE GLASGOW ROSE BY CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH

THANK YOU MR MORGAN!

A huge thank you to Mr Morgan for giving the children an exciting Sports Afternoon.  The photos are amazing, action shots!

The children enjoyed doing the Flat Race, Egg & Spoon, Hurdles, Seated Throw and Relay.  They all had a really great time!

Thank you again Mr Morgan!

SPORTS DAY!!

Monday and Tuesday

On Monday we braved the cold wind to find our champions of our Highland Games.  Toby was our Shot Putt winner for Clan MacDonald and James was our Chuck a Wellie winner for Clan Mackintosh.   The cold wind felt like we were on top of Ben Nevis so we had to retreat indoors before doing our Tossing the Caber!

On Tuesday we practised our batting skills in the hall.

SPORTS WEEK

5TH JULY

 

We will be taking part in at least one sporting activity each day this week.  On Monday, the children had a choice of Team races or JustDance.  They chose JustDance.  This made the hall and the children very warm, so we finished with a walk around the building for our cool down.

JUSTDANCE WORKOUT

INTERNATIONAL  WEEK

28TH JUNE 2021

Staying closer to home this year due to Covid restrictions on travel!  Check out our fabulous photos showing what a great time we have had this week!

FINALLY AN ICE LOLLY AT OUR WARM HIGHLAND GAMES!

How did the Romans tell the time?

One of the questions that the children wanted to explore was 'How did they tell the time?'

We found out that in ancient times, people relied on sundials to mark the passage of hours and minutes.  We had such a lovely sunny day today that we managed to create our own with some wooden dowling, blue tac and a paper plate.  We plotted North, South , East and West and then checked it throughout the day. 

Have a look at our very clear results!

 

OUR SUN DIAL - JUST LIKE THE ROMANS!

MORE GREAT SHADOW WORK - FINDING OUT HOW SHADOWS CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE DAY

Building a Roman Camp and Emperor Morgan's Wall

Many thanks to Emperor Morgan (Mr Morgan) for a fantastic Outdoor Education lesson this week!

The class watched a video from Antonious, who explained their mission.  Look at these amazing photos to see what fun they all had!

Learning Outdoors!

What a great day for taking Science outside!  We enjoyed exploring and creating shadows outside - easy when the sun is shining so brightly!  The children want to know how the Romans could tell the time - so we have started by creating shadows.

 

CREATING SHADOWS

Enjoying some new play equipment bought with the money raised in the Christmas raffle.

Time to start planting!

We started planting out our plants this week. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t very summery and we are worried that they may suffer from the expected storm! Fingers crossed that they will be strong enough to survive! 

SCIENCE INVESTIGATION

Gaius, a Roman Soldier, asked us if we could find out which paper would be best to mop up his red wine which he frequently spills at the end of a loooong day guarding Hadrian's Wall from those fierce Scots!  So, we planned an investigation and tested different types of paper.

Thank you very much for all the money you sent in response to our DANCEATHON!

OUTDOOR LEARNING WEEK

19TH-23RD APRIL '21

 

The weather was extremely kind to us this week and we managed to do lots of learning outdoors.  Check out our photos to see what we've been up to!

OUTDOOR MATHS - POSITION GRIDS AND CO-ORDINATES

Lots of team work, revising choices of equipment and amazing effort, produced these clear and accurate grids! 

Well done everyone, you were great!

HOW DID THE ROMAN ARMY MARCH?

... in sequence just like this! 

Well done soldiers!

More work on co-ordinates -

Where are the Roman artefacts?

There they are!

OUR GARDENING PROJECT

Well... we've made a start!

We've trimmed, cut back, weeded, tidied, emptied, sorted, surveyed and...

planted seeds!

Watch this space! 

We hope to show you lots of lovely summer flowers soon.

Welcome to our Summer Term!  We have had a really great first week back and have settled into the school routine very well.

Our Topic for this term is

Would you like to be a Roman?

and follows on very nicely from our Spring Term work.

  The children have thought of some great questions to explore - such as 'Did the Romans have hospitals?'  'What were their houses like?'  'What food did they eat?' These should certainly help them to decide!

We have also decided to embark on a small gardening project!  We are going to try to restore our Peace Garden and create a Garden for the Roman Gods.  Sadly, this area has suffered due to the restrictions of the last year.  This project ties in nicely with celebrating our Outdoor Learning Week beginning on April 19th. 

We are also fortunate to be taking part in a block of Virtual Street Dance lessons.

We are looking forward to a GREAT Summer Term - and hope that the weather behaves! 

EASTER 2021

Happy Easter holidays everyone!  We have had a great fortnight back in school - was it only two weeks??  Everybody has got back into the school routine very well.  Unfortunately, we could not follow the usual Llwyncrwn tradition this year of bringing in decorated eggs for Easter and Easter bonnets.  However, we had great fun doing these in class.  Mr Morgan judged our handwriting and Easter egg decoration.  Here are our winners -

 

Year 4 Handwriting - Toby 3rd place, Marni 2nd place and Ava 1st place.

Year 3 Handwriting - Lilly 3rd place, Ebony 2nd place and Lowri 1st place.

Easter egg decoration - Toby 3rd place, Macey 2nd place and Monroe 1 st place.

COMIC RELIEF

RED NOSE DAY 2021

 

We still had some red noses in class even though we weren't allowed to bring any into school!  We had a great, fun day remembering to share a smile!  The children enjoyed hearing 'Ethan's story' in the Red Nose Day assembly and were interested to hear how the money that is raised, helps other people.

KNOCK, KNOCK!

This lovely class always make me smile ... but I didn't know we had so many comedians!  Those who wanted to, told a joke for RND!

 

Spring Term

First Week of March

A normally very busy week of special activities in school had to become a busy week at home this year.  We still managed to celebrate Saint David's Day 'remotely' - watching a fantastic film, reading texts, completing Welsh symmetry pictures and colouring some Welsh themed pictures.  We have some budding bakers here who helped to make Welsh Cakes at home.  For World Book Day we listened to an Oxford Reading Tree story - A Roman Adventure, and then designed a new book cover for it.

 

 

A FUN, FAMILY FRIDAY SPENT LOOKING FOR SIGNS OF SPRING!

SPRING TERM 2021

GIGANTIC JOURNEYS - BACK TO THE ROMANS

ROUNDHOUSES

We have been learning about the people who lived in Great Britain at the time of the Roman invasion - the Celts.  We have been finding out how they lived and what their homes were like!  Have a look at these amazing ROUNDHOUSES that the children have created!  Let's hope we can put them all together very soon and build our very own HILLFORT.  Well done!

 

SNOW PICTURES - A great excuse to get outside for fresh air and exercise!

AMAZING TIME MACHINES!

Welcome to our exciting new topic - Gigantic Journeys - Back to the Romans! 

These are pictures of Time Machines!  Do you think it is possible to travel through time?  Or are there other ways to find out about the past?  We are going to find out this term.  Check out our Google Classroom for an activity based on these pictures.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year to you and your families.  Let's all hope for a great 2021.  Online learning will be provided from Wednesday 6th - Friday 8th January.  Please remember to check Google classroom.  I hope you have all managed to stay safe and well and to have a good holiday.  I look forward to hearing all about it - hopefully very soon.  For now, I send you my best wishes.  Mrs Gsmiley

 

Merry Christmas to you and

your families!

I would like to end this unusual Autumn Term by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and more importantly a safe one!  Please scroll down our page and look at the photos of all the wonderful things we have been doing throughout the term!  Have a Happy Holiday

and 

Stay Safe!

 

See you all in what I hope will be a great new year.

Best Wishes to you all

Mrs G X

 

 

 

 

OUR TOPIC WAS - WHAT MATTERS TO ME? ... WE FOUND THE ANSWER!

THE FINAL DAY OF A VERY STRANGE TERM

...and then Dosbarth Elder shrunk to just 11!  We had a lovely last day together though.  Thank you to these lovely children for helping to clean and tidy our class and get it all ready for what we all hope will be a wonderful new year.  They persuaded me to watch The Grinch - first time for everything! - after a fun game of musical chairs.
