Our second topic of this term, was Movers and Shakers. The children were able to look around the class 'art gallery,' learning about a range of artists and their work. The children chose six to draw their own thumbnails of, before doing a detailed sketch of their favourite.
The children had a go at drawing their own still life...
We got stuck into our first topic of the year, Muck, Mess & Mixtures, with lots of 'interesting' things.....
Thank you Dosbarth Onnen for a great year! We wish you all the best as you move on to Year 3
Today we started our new topic of with a very unexpected...ALIEN CRASH!!!
The children enjoyed investigating some new and very strange materials, they wrote their own police incident reports and started creating their own missing alien posters as we think it’s hiding some where in the school...we found some very strange footprints!😯
Our Dinosaur Day
Dosbarth Onnen enjoyed their visit from PC Viv today😊

Summer Term 2 Topic Web - Muck, Mess and Mixtures
If you would like to do some bits related to our topic Muck, Mess and Mixtures at home, here is a list of ideas. Please bring them into class, we'd love to see what you've been up to :-)
On Wednesday, Dosbarth Onnen went on their school trip to the Elan Valley. We had a fun packed day, split up into three parts.
Our first session was in the play park, where a lot of us got to grips with the zip wire. We had lots of fun....and an ice cream 😍
Our second session was called Forest Adventure. First, we used a 'smell enhancer' and bits of nature to create our own potions which we named and talked about what it might do to people. We then learnt how to cook toast over a campfire and to make a spark for our own fire. Finally, our session ended with us making clay animals and hiding them in the woods.
Our last session was a bug hunting walk. We learnt about different bugs that can be found in our country as well as others from hotter countries (which were a lot bigger!!!) We then took our nets and pots and set off to see what we could find!!
A fantastic day was had by all 😊

We had a very 'messy' introduction to our topic on Tuesday, exploring lots of disgusting mixtures. Despite the weather, fun was had by all!!

As part of our 'Animal Rescue' themed task, we made boats to save the animals and rescue them from the island. Great team work and some super ideas.

Today, as part of our topic, 'Paws, Claws and Whiskers,' we were visited by A. & S. Animal Encounters.
They brought 5 different animals to show us. We met 'Sonic' the Lesser Tenrec, from Madagascar and 'Bumblebee,' the 3 banded Armadillo. We also saw 'Biscuit' the Bearcat, 'Frank' the Possum and 'Bobby' and 'George' the Meerkats.
Everyone loved meeting and learning about the new animals.

We were so lucky today to have Monty, the golden retriever, visit us in Dosbarth Onnen. He fitted in perfectly with our new Summer topic 'Paws Claws and Whiskers'.
He is a 'Canine Care' friend and visits children in other schools and local residential homes.
He was very friendly and allowed us all to stroke him. We hope he comes to see us again.
