Our Big Question:
If there’s conflict overseas, how/why are we feeling the impact?
This term, our big question will have a Humanities focus. With sensitivity, the children will consider how ongoing conflict overseas can affect our way and quality of life here in Wales. The children will develop and build upon a range of skills across all areas of learning, through carrying out engaging and inspiring activities that will have a link to our everyday lives.
Our Well-Being day will take place on a Wednesday.
Dydd Gwyl Dewi – Saint David’s Day 2021
We celebrated Saint David’s Day virtually this year for the very first time! We all wore the colours of the Welsh flag and took part in a Big Wales Virtual Quiz! Some of us also baked Daffodil Biscuits, made Welsh Cakes and tried a Snowdonia Milkshake. We had a great day!
