It’s been a busy but wonderful week at Waunarlwydd. It’s been great to see so many parents and carers at the school this week as our Year 1, 2 and 3 classes opened our first ever ‘Cafe Cynefin’ and shared their learning. We really hope you enjoyed the experience as much as the children and staff enjoyed hosting you! We’d love to receive your feedback! We had a treat on Thursday when ‘Sammy the seagull’ visited school for an assembly to remind us about the importance of recycling. We’ve ended the week in style with Comic Relief (a big thanks for the donations) and a wonderful assembly performed by Mr Reid’s class. I’m sure everyone that came to watch would agree they were brilliant!

The Nursery have been finishing off their ‘J week’ work by drawing pictures of their favourite jungle animal, moving like jungle animals in Gym and having great fun playing in their new jungle role play area. Easter has also come to Nursery this week and on Welly Wednesday the children hunted for patterned Easter eggs and found partners with the same pattern. They went to the recycling assembly on Thursday and sat and listened so well. Reception we have started some Easter fun. They have learned about the life cycle of a hen and watched a very cute video of some eggs hatching into little chicks! They have been using their phonic knowledge to write some simple words on eggs, matching the Easter Bunny’s pictures and using Numicon to help with addition to 10. In Drawing Club this week we listened to the story of Rosie’s Walk, learned some new vocabulary linked the story and drew the main character, Rosie, with some wonderful secret codes! Children also drew a map of Rosie’s walk around the farm and continued to practice the question ‘Pwy wyt ti?’ in Welsh. 

It’s been easy to pick the highlight in Years 1, 2 and 3 this week. The children absolutely loved hosting family members at ‘Cafe Cynefin’. Visitors were treated to first class service from the children with an array of drinks and sweet treats on offer. There was some great use of Welsh and it was also a great opportunity to share learning and complete activities across a range of areas. Well done all and thanks to families for supporting!

This week year 4 have loved making their cam toys and showing the finished product to the year 1 class. They have also been busy filming their playscripts using a green screen app. We can’t wait to see the finished film. It’s been a great week in Year 5 with the children enjoying their decimal and percentage work in maths, writing a playscript, swimming, creating Cam toys, basketball skills in PE and their wordle challenge. The Year 6 children have been very busy this week building their cam toys for their Year 3 friends. They have been sawing, sticking, cutting, constructing and collaborating. During their PE lessons, they explored balance on the apparatus. Ms Williams has been most impressed with their vaulting skills.
