Croeso i Dosbarth Gwyrdd
Welcome To Dosbarth Gwyrdd's class page!
Our topic this term is The Rugby World Cup! We have decided to focus on and support Argentina through their Rugby World Cup journey! Good Luck Argentina!
This term we have carried out lots of Rugby based activities and lots of activities centred on Argentina. We each made our very own rugby kits, did printing with rugby boots, we matched up pairs of rugby boots and we had a rugby focus day which we all thoroughly enjoyed. We were able to practice our throwing and catching, weaving in and out of players and we even played a game of rugby against Dosbarth Rhymni!
We each made our own Argentinean flags which we have put up on display outside the classroom! They look fantastic! We made our own Tac Pac which allowed the children experience the classic dance the Argentine tango which fun fact; became popular back in the 1880s.
We based our sensory story around the Argentinean legend Topec and ‘The magic bean tree’. The story is about a magic tree in the middle of the Argentinean pampas. On the top of the tree slept a giant evil bird that stopped the rain from falling. A brave boy called Topec set out to save the village, the rivers and the creatures from dying of thirst. Topec and the villagers scared the bird away and prayed for the rain to fall in order to save the carob tree. We based our display board on the story, we painted with coffee and we made a carob tree and a giant bird. We had a go at making fresh Argentinean empanadas which gave us opportunities to taste, smell and feel all of the fresh ingredients.
This term we have been really lucky to have forest school sessions. We have enjoyed making bird feeders, exploring the outdoors and melting marshmallows and making s’mores, they were delicious!!
This term dosbarth gwyrdd took part in mental health awareness day and the ‘#Hello Yellow’ young minds campaign. We all wore yellow, made our own emoji’s with different emotions, did printing with lemons, took photos in a yellow themed photo booth and lots more!!
Next term dosbarth gwyrdd will be looking at.
We also have lots of Christmas activities coming up such as our christmas concert, our class trip, the christmas lunch, and lots more! Have a lovely half term and check back and see what we’ve been up to in the next few weeks.
