Year 1

Croeso i Year 1!


Remembrance Day 2019

Year 1 have been remembering all the brave soldiers who help to to keep us safe. This is one of our children's rights - Article 19: we have the right to be safe. 

We made beautiful poppies, did observational drawings and wrote about how we can keep one another safe. We were ambitious, capable learners!










After our trip to St Fagans, we had an afternoon experimenting with toys from the past. Some of the toys we were not sure how to work, but after lots of thought and persevering we worked it out! The egg and cup was very popular, especially with the adults in the class!






St Fagans

We went on our class trip to St Fagans. It was a very wet day, but we had so much fun. Mrs Haven in the office even had a phone call from St Fagans to say that we were the most polite and well behaved school that they had visit all week! Da iawn Year 1!







We found the brick house from the Three Little Pigs. Luckily the wolf was no-where to be seen!



We visited the shops selling lots of things that were familiar and not so familiar. We have been using weighing scales in our classroom, but our scales are very different to the scales in the shop!



Next Ceri showed us some very old toys.  They were very different to the toys we play with, but we had so much fun playing with them!



Being creative

Gwent Music came into our school to talk about playing a musical instrument. Lots of us had a go at playing some of the brass instruments. When we came back to class, some of us used the equipment around the room to make our own instruments. Some of us even danced to the tune being played on our instruments!



Making stew

We read the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and were shocked that the wolf fell into a pot of stew. Some of us were not sure what stew was, so we thought it would be a good idea to use all the healthy vegetables that are growing at the moment to make a delicious stew. We all tried it and thought it was scrumptious, just what we needed on a cold and rainy day!








Postcards to our families

We were all very excited to post our cards telling you all about our walk around the local area. We bought our stamps from Mrs Bearcroft and posted them in the post box. 






Year 1 does Mini-Yoga

We have been ensuring our minds and bodies are kept healthy by taking part in Mrs Rees Mini-Yoga sessions. We are all very relaxed!
