What a busy term it has been! We have focused on lots of rhymes during our Pori Drwry Stori time and would like to thank all the adults who joined in and supported the programme at home. You could see from our wonderful class assembly how much the children have grown in confidence. They performed superbly. Da iawn !

Next term we shall be looking at ‘Growing.’ From how we change as we grow, to planting seeds and hopefully growing some flowers, fruit and vegetables. With luck we will attract lots of mini wildlife to the Nursery yard for us to investigate.

 

10Apr2019

Allotment is our topic for this term and we will be learning about the importance of water. We will making good use of our poly tunnel and will be planting a variety of vegetables. If you have ‘green fingers’ and would like to help then please contact the school.
