Year six – Dosbarth Enili have had their environment week their task was to find out facts about our reptiles in the foyer.
Year two – Dosbarth Seiriol had their chicken week or ‘wythnos leir’. There was a big surprise on Tuesday when a group of children and Mrs Owen went to collect eggs in the nursery coup. A gigantic egg was in the coup so they became detectives to find out how and why was this gigantic egg was in there? Our detectives discovered that the egg was an Ostrich egg and had come from South Africa, with their information they wrote stories about The Egg That Spoke.
Reception class – Dosbarth Conwy went looking for pine cones, leaves, sticks and pebbles around the school ground to make a mini beast habitat.
Ieuan, Dylan, Erin and Georgia helped to clean our shed. It’s where we still have some chicks and all our food for the chickens. They moved four small chicks to a bigger broooder so they have more room, but the chicks will still need a heat bulb to keep them warm.
We also keep Bantams in our old greenhouse this is made out of 2000 recycled fizzy drinks bottles. All the food and water containers were washed and clean bedding put down.
Isack, Megan, Ffion, Emily and Florence planted lots of bulbs ready for spring. We are hoping our daffodils will be in full bloom for St Davids Day – ‘Diwrnod Dewi Sant’.
In service on Tuesday, Mr Jones asked everyone to be very quiet while he went and got a surprise. It was a Death’s Head Hawk-moth, it had hatched in our foyer and we could hear it squeaking and we learnt how it imitates the queen bee in order to steal honey from the bee hives.
Eco-clwb this week was the pheasant group. Our willow tunnels had grown a lot over the summer so that needed to be rewoven the older children took cuttings to plant ready for a fourth tunnel next spring.
At playtime on Wednesday, Lily and Charlotte found a Lime Hawk-moth caterpillar.
Year five – Dosbarth Gogarth peeled all the apples from our harvest ready for Mrs Bassett to make crumble for all the school. All the peelings went to our chicken coups, they had a lovely time eating them.
Mason, Mariah and Ava have been going to Mr Jones office each afternoon to see a different creature. On Thursday it was an Indian Star tortoise which is in a vivarium on Mr Jones desk. On Friday it was our Fire Skink.
This week 368 eggs were recorded on the tally chart.
