Welcome to Dosbarth Ffawydden 2019-2020.
Here are some home learning ideas in preparation for our next topic 'Mighty Metals'.
Spring Term 2020
Hello and welcome back to another exciting term in Dosbarth Ffawydden. This half term our topic is 'Blue Abyss' where we will be focusing on the different oceans of the world, the layers of these oceans and the animals that can be found under the sea. We will also be busy fundraising ready for our class trip to Blue Planet Aquarium in Ellesmere Port on 11th February.
Look how busy we have been this half term! We have created personification poems about the sea, written biographies about the life of Jacques Cousteau, worked in pairs to make fish and created beautiful under the sea artwork. We still have our trip left to come!
Some examples of our personification poetry.

To start off our new Muck, Mess and Mixtures learning journey we began reading Gerorge's Marvollous Medicine and then had a messy afternoon exploring lots of disgusting mixtures, it did get very messy but the children had so much fun😃
Mess, mixtures and more mess!!

The children had a great afternoon designing and making their own pizza faces today 🍕🍕🍕 I hope they tasted as good as they looked. Tomorrow we will be labelling the pizza pictures using Skitch and giving the toppings alternative names as we have been looking at Roald Dahl's 'Revolting Recipes.' Watch this space!!!
Wednesday 19th June
What a fantastic day we’ve had up at the Elan Valley today.
Our first session started with us making smelly potions, we collected and added items we found in the woods and gave them exciting names. We then made some clay animals and hid them in the woods and then learnt how to start our own camp fire🔥 and cooked some toast for our snack.
Our second session was a walk and Bug Hunt with Phil🕷🐛🐜 We collected lots of different bugs (and Phil named every single one of them) using nets and pots before finally setting them free!
Our final session was picnic time and a play in the park!!
A really fantastic day was had by all and even the sun came out so we thought we best celebrate by having ice cream🍦🍦
Tuesday 7th May 2019
Today, as part of our new topic, ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers,’ we were visited by A & S Animal Encounters.
The children were lucky enough to meet ‘Sonic’ the Lesser Tenrec, from Madagascar, ‘Bumblebee,’ the 3 banded Armadilo, ‘Biscuit’ the Bearcat, ‘Frank’ the Possum and ‘Bobby’ and ‘George’ the Meerkats. The children had a fantastic afternoon meeting the animals and asking lots of questions😄
Here is the Dosbarth Ffawydden weekly Timetable.
Welcome to Spring 2019
This first half term our topic will be
Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
We have been building fortresses and trying to knock them down. We had lots of fun and made graphs to record our results.
How many blocks can we knock down?
Then we made sugar cube towers and have a competition to see who could make the highest tower.
We went on a town walk to locate bridges and tunnels. It was a lovely sunny day and we saw lots of lovely spring flowers too. We didnt know there were so many different types of bridges in The Rock Park.
Dosbarth Ffawydden having fun with the bridge challenge.
