Ty Gwyn Special School

"Learning To Achieve"

Winter Activities Weeks 1 & 2

For Week 1 and 2 of this brand new term in a brand new year our activities will focus on Wintertime. It's chilly outside so stay warm and join in or watch! 

Recycling our Christmas board! Goodbye Father Christmas- Hello Frosty January! ❄️

We try and reuse and recycle as much as we can being an Eco-friendly school. As Dosbarth Usk couldn’t be together to create a brand new display board for the new term we’ve adapted what we’d created together before the holidays. 
Bev made a log cabin from some card we’d painted - she did a great job - BUT just wait until you see what type of log cabin she made at home! I can think of a few Uskateers who would’ve loved to have helped her! 

Bev’s choctastic log cabin!

What a masterpiece! Bev’s chocolate finger Log cabin! ❄️

Just a little explanation of how we like to be creative! ‘We don’t do perfect- we do fun! - then we make it look good!’ Team Usk!

Rip together! Stick together! Mix it up! Puffy paint - get stuck in! How many eyes? Where’s your nose? Frosty looking good! It’s all about the ‘Process’!

Our Winter Art and Craft! ❄️

Anita made a Snowman’s face for the Lightboard ⛄️

Using a freezer bag and some shaving foam you can simply make a squishy Snowman face. Use Sharpie pens or similar to draw a cheeky face! Don’t forget to get messy with some extra foam! It smells lovely too! Have some Sensory squishy fun with your family! ❄️
