What you’ll need

  • 1 x cup Icing sugar
  • Water
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Flour
  • You can use noodles, pasta or spaghetti for worm 


  • Pour icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl
  • Add water until a thick consistency
  • Stir in a little flour at a time until dough like consistency
  • Knead into a soft dough
  • Options for play
    • Keep as soft dough (store in fridge in cling wrap)
    • Add water to make thick runny ‘mud’
    • Separate dough into small chunks and leave overnight to dry out and make edible dirt (pictured). Just rub dried out dough chunks between your hands to get dirt like consistency.

Alternatively you can use chocolate mousse/angel delight in place of the above mud recipe. 

Look what animals we've seen on our walks!


Dosbarth Gwyrdd have been taking our cameras with us when we go for our daily walks and we have been filming what animals we can see so that we can share our videos with you! Have a little look at what animals live around us

Spring is Here

Popular children's dance song about spring, "Spring is Here" with lyrics. From the CD, "Seasonal Songs in Motion" Seasonal Songs in Motion CD Download: http:...

Listen to this action song: ‘Spring is Here’ and use your senses to help you find signs of spring when you can get outside for some exercise.  We’ve listened to this song in class so the children are familiar with it, although may need a little help with some of the actions!!! ( sorry parents!!)


With help and support from yourselves and siblings the children could make the crafts in the expressive arts section, under spring crafts and they could be used to create a sensory song and can be used as prompts in the above song.


There are many more signs of spring. Can you find any more? What can you smell and feel?
