Ty Gwyn Special School

"Learning To Achieve"


Autumn term 2022

Last half term we looked at relationships and friendships. We enjoyed our 'Room on the Broom' sensory story, completed literacy and numeracy tasks, made halloween crafts, made lots of yummy food in cookery, went on walks to the local shops and hwb, and lots of fun things.


This term we are looking at the topic 'Season's Greetings'. We will be exploring our sensory story- 'Stick man', completing numeracy and literacy tasks, making some fantastic Christmas crafts, having fun practicing and performing our Concert, studying the world around us focussing on the football world Cup and much more.

Before we go exploring different countries and finding out about traditions. We thought it would be good to talk about the way we treat the world and our environment, keeping our favourite places clean and tidy and making sure we look after our planet. Let's explore some of the ways we can look after our planet!


How can we help our planet?

To look after the planet we love, there are lots of things we can do. Today, we would like you to look at what you throw away at home. Help your parents to sort your rubbish into recycling bins, sorting according to their materials. If you are able to print the worksheet attached beneath, complete the table, sorting the items into their correct column.


Another way we can look after our planet is to make sure we do not use too much water. We can do this by taking showers more instead of baths, turning the tap on when brushing our teeth and not watering our garden too often. How much water do you use every day? Make a note of each time you do.



PLASTIC! Plastic is something we all use and can't easily get away from. It is important that we in Dosbarth Tawe try to use less plastic in school. Have a look at the video below for some ideas.

We already use reusable plates and cups at our class parties, but we could do more, like make our own party banners and cards. 


Activity- Can you make a party banner with your name on it today.

Use paper and cut it into triangles, decorate each triangle with whatever you have at home- colouring pencils, crayons, felt pens, paint, magazine cuttings etc. Then if you have a piece of wool or string attach your triangles to it. If you don't have string don't worry, just keep your triangles safe to bring to school and we can do that bit! Have fun decorating your own banners and help us reduce out plastic use in class!
