Mrs King

Mrs King's Class 2022 - 2023

Before half term we took part in a penalty shoot out in the top block. 

The speed of our shots was recorded and a gold certificate was given to the fastest boy and girl. Well done to Brody and Seren who were our winners.

Also well done to everybody who took part and took home a red certificate.

Please have a look at our photos.

Before half term we had lots of fun learning with Lisa from Experimental Science.

Our workshop was called Fab Physics and our photos and videos show some of the experiments we experienced.

Visit to South Wales Aviation Museum

This week Year 3/4 had a wonderful day at the South Wales Aviation Museum at St Athans, where we were able to climb onboard different aircraft of all shapes and sizes.

On one aeroplane we fastened  our seatbelts and took part in the onboard safety instructions, as well as listening to information from the captain.

We were able to sit in and explore a wide variety of aircraft large and small. We were also allowed to use the aircraft controls and press all the buttons, which we loved.

Please have a look at our photos showing our experience throughout our busy day.

Sun Safety Videos

We have been working in groups to create a sun safety video.

We looked at videos online and discussed the important information we needed to include. 

Then we made a list of the success criteria.

We are enjoying working in teams.

Our videos will follow shortly.  

On Monday we celebrated Earth Day. We found out about different things we can do to help care for our environment and in doing so, help look after the earth.

We then created lovely colourful posters to remind everyone of this important message.

Please look at our lovely posters in the slide show below.

Celebrating Earth Day 2022

As well as creating posters for Earth Day, we started planting seeds to grow a variety of flowers, salad leaves and lettuce. 

More photos will follow shortly. 

Visit to St Catherine's Church in Pontypridd

Today we visited St Catherine's Church in Pontypridd.

When we arrived we were greeted by Trish Tazzini-Lloyd who spoke to us about why people go to church. Then she took us around inside the church and explained different features and what they are used for.

We learned lots of information which we will use in class when we create information leaflets about the church.

We would like to say a big thank you to Trish Tazzini-Lloyd and St Catherine's for welcoming us today. 

   

Eisteddfod Creative Competition

Here are the children in Year 3 who entered our Eisteddfod Creative Competition. They all did so well with their lovely models, paintings, drawings and collages.

The winners were Carter Davies (1st), Eleanor Ford (2nd) and Siena Palmer (3rd).

Well done to everyone for using your creative skills during the half term holiday and a big thank you to parents and grandparents who helped when needed.

Every child has had a special certificate and stars on their chart and all entries will be put on display in the hall for everyone to enjoy

World Book Day 2022

In Year 3 we had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day today.

It was lovely to see the children dressed as characters from their favourite books or dressed in their pyjamas ready for a bedtime story.

In class we talked to each other about who we were dressed up as and showed the books and cuddly toys we had brought in from home.

Next Mrs King read her favourite story, 'The Day the Crayons Quit'which made us laugh. 

Later we started to make some bright and colourful leaflets about World Book Day.  

Here are some photos from our day.

Autumn Term 2021

Visit to Llancaiach Fawr

 

Back in the Autumn term we visited Llancaiach Fawr to find out more about how the Tudor people lived in the past. We had an enjoyable time visiting all the different rooms in the manor house. We found out about the Pritchard family who lived there and also learned about the jobs of the servants who worked for them. Here are some photos from our visit.
