Dosbarth Willow- Miss Hughes

Welcome to Miss Hughes's Class Page smiley
Croeso i dudalen dosbarth Miss Hughes smiley

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.

 

Home Reading

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 heart

Queries or Concerns

Please contact me on my email address misshughes@llwyncrwn.co.uk should you have any queries or concerns you need to discuss.

Thank you.

  Summer Term

Our topic this term is Iechyd Da, where we will focus on the importance of good physical health and mental well being, so that Dosbarth Willow learn to be healthy and confident individuals. Learning about physical health includes food choices, physical activity and balanced lifestyles. Physical health and mental well-being are interlinked and it is important that we understand healthy bodies contribute positively to healthy minds. πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

   Pupil Led

    Planning

We have come up with some great ideas for activities that  we’d like to do across the six areas of learning. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜€

Pupil Ideas

Bwyd Afiach a Iachus

Spring Term 2022

 

Croeso i Dymor y Gwanwyn! 

Our exciting topic this term is "Let's Explore", where we will be investigating Forces and Earth and Space through lots of hands on practical experiments. What are gravity, air resistance and friction? Everything in existence is affected by forces, we cannot see them despite them being everywhere, so how do we know that they exist? All will soon be revealed as we delve into this topic to find the answers.

 

May The Force Be With You!

Following on from last week’s Bushcraft session, Dosbarth Willow were set the challenge of creating mini shelters using only natural materials from outdoors …. no string / sellotape to keep these shelters together!!!

Dogs Trust

We enjoyed a very informative afternoon with Helen from the Dogs Trust, learning about appropriate behaviour around dogs and dog safety.

Outdoor Learning

We enjoyed an outdoor Art lesson creating planet collages from natural materials in our school grounds.

This term, our topic is

This is me / Dyma fi.

We will be learning about Beddau's history, and how the village developed and grew after the Cwm Colliery opened in 1914.

How did it feel to work in the coal mines of Wales? How has the coal industry changed over the years? Why was the Welsh valleys coal called "Black Gold?" We'll be exploring these questions and more in our topic, and also investigating how the coal industry impacted the towns and valleys of Wales. Pupils will also investigate forces, and design and create pulley systems to replicate the mine wheels.

 Pupil voice will play an important part when planning our topic, so that our class is eager to make good progress and develop their skills.

International Week

πŸ‡«πŸ‡· La France πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

Expressing Paris through expressive arts! Dosbarth Willow were set the task to create a 2D or 3D Eiffel Tower in whichever medium they desired. They thoroughly enjoyed the task and came up with some fab results!

Testing, fine tuning and racing our land yachts.🏁 Well done everybody. πŸ˜€β­οΈ

June has brought the sun with it and this half term’s topic is “Surf’s Up.” β˜€οΈπŸ•ΆπŸŒŠπŸ„‍♀️ 
We have decided to design and make land yachts to race. We started the process with the planning stage, discussing success criteria and variables. We’ve drawn plans to scale and thought about branding πŸ‘ Now we’ve started constructing our vehicles. Lots of measuring, sawing and team work. Looking forward to seeing the finished products! πŸ‘

Welcome back everybody! Croeso nôl pawb!

It's great to be back together in the classroom again for the Summer Term, with an exciting topic to fuel your imagination - Pesky Pirates.

                                         Pesky Pirates! 

Who were pirates? Daring figures who swooped on treasure ships and returned home with golden cargoes? Brutal sea-thieves who showed no mercy to their victims? Bold adventurers who paid for travel by theft at sea? In fact, pirates were ALL these things and more!! For centuries, pirates have sailed across the seas and oceans of the world. Some groups of pirates have been called by different names, such as Corsairs, and most have terrorized certain areas like the pirates of the Caribbean. 

Did you know that the Welshman Bartholomew Roberts (also known as Black Bart / Barti Ddu ) was one of the most successful pirates of all time? He captured over 400 ships!!

So jump aboard me hearties and enjoy a term on the seas and oceans exploring the lives of Pesky Pirates!  

Criw Cymraeg!

Dosbarth Willow’s Criw Cymraeg have created a song for Diwrnod Seren a Sbarc. They’ve shared the song with all other classes so the whole school can learn the song as part of Diwrnod Seren a Sbarc Day celebrations. Da iawn! πŸ‘πŸŽ΅πŸŽ΅

Wales Outdoor Learning Week

We have been reading and learning about Robinson Crusoe in our Literacy lessons this week, so what better time to try out our survival skills than Outdoor Learning Week!
The children were set the task of designing and constructing a scaled down shelter in pairs, using materials from the school grounds. The only thing is, it HAD to be constructed and held together with natural materials from outside - no glue, string or plasticine allowed! No mean feat!!! 
They certainly rose to the challenge, and combined thinking skills with teamwork to produce some sturdy, impressive shelters. Da iawn pawb! πŸ˜€

 

Wales Outdoor Learning Week- Survival Shelters

Our writing workshop with author Jack Meggitt Phillips. 15/04/21
We had a very enjoyable afternoon in our online workshop with Jack Meggitt- Phillips, the author of our current class novel “The Beast And The Bethany”. As well as giving us tips on story writing and answering questions about being an author, Jack read us a chapter from the book. We thoroughly enjoyed our session πŸ‘πŸ˜€


 

Congratulations Amy!

During lockdown Amy wrote a poem about a peculiar pet, and the poem is now getting published in The Young Writers’ latest book of poetry. A fabulous achievement, we’re very proud of you Amy. Da iawn. πŸ˜€ 

 Happy New Year everyone!

Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas holiday and have stayed safe and well. 

Unfortunately, we are not going to be together in class for the time being, and will be doing our online learning on Google Classroom.

Literacy, Maths and topic work will be set daily and will begin on Wednesday, January 6th. Work can be completed on Google Docs/Slides and shared on the drive/turned in on Google Classroom. Alternatively, work can be done on paper and brought in when pupils return to school. It is important that all children engage with online learning as much as possible while we are away from school, keep reading regularly and make a big effort to learn their times tables! Online games like Hit The Button (Top Ranks) can really help with this. yes

Our school topic this term is Gigantic Journeys  and our class will take a huge leap back in time to the exciting "Age of the dinosaurs". We will become expert Palaeontologists (studying life forms from previous historic eras and fossils) and will learn about the fascinating prehistoric creatures that once inhabited the Earth. 

We value the pupils' thoughts and ideas when planning our lessons, so if you have any ideas for activities you would like to carry out in this topic let me know by email on misshughes@llwyncrwn.co.uk or comments on Google Classroom. πŸ‘ 

 

                  Dastardly Dinosaurs!                    

Home Learning 28/01/21

Thank you so much for all your continued hard work at home and sharing it with me. This week we have learnt about Santes Dwynwen, the Welsh love spoon, various ways of multiplying numbers, dinosaur habitats, and most exciting of all are the heroes and villains you’ve created for next week’s stories. I can’t wait to read them πŸ‘πŸ˜€β€οΈ
