It’s BUZZING at Rhos Goch Farm!


Year 4 Eco- Officers visited Rhos Goch Farm’s amazing eco plot on Tuesday 30th June. Natural Buzz is a pollinator initiative run by Keep Wales Tidy. This year’s campaign was run in partnership with the Horticultural Trade association and Green Space Wales and was funded by the Welsh Government’s Nature Fund. Rhos Goch Farm high up in the Conwy Valley is one of five practical demonstration sites being transformed into a blaze of wildflowers and colour. We enjoyed helping to plant special apple trees, take part in a survey of hedgerow/ habitats/ minibeasts and meet important people who are supporting the initiative. We all agreed we’ll look forward to visiting again in the future. If you want to find out more look up Keep Wales Tidy online.

Spring/ Gwanwyn 2015

We investigated Welsh Eisteddfod chairs and chair sculptures from around the world.

The investigation, and famous characters inspired our own chair sculptures, using materials we up-cycled.

When designing, it was important to estimate and imagine the size of our chairs in cm and mm,

because if they were too big, they wouldn’t all fit on our class exhibition wall!

February/ Chwefror 2015
 After lots of hard work, our Tudor shelters for rich or poor, were completed. Working in partners meant using good talking and listening, as well as applying our maths skills to measure and cut, or to estimate size. We had to use our historical research and our design drawings to gain results, which I’m sure you’ll agree, look authentic! As an eco-school we made sure we used lots of recycled materials, such as cereal boxes, card cylinders and acetate from packaging.

We have been busy putting our maths

skills into action during our Design

Technology project. We used a Venn

Diagram to compare Speke Hall

and Plas Mawr. We also measured and

cut the wood to the sizes we’d planned

when designing shelters for Tudor rich or poor.

 Dosbarth Mostyn enjoyed a hands on day at Tehniquest learning and experiencing exciting parts of science. The day involved a solar panelled workshop where the children made some fantastic fairground rides which travelled at tremendous speeds! We also learnt many interesting facts about light and sound. We discovered that light travels in a straight line whilst sound travels in waves. We even learnt how suncream protects us from the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. It was amazing. Everybody had fun trying to solve the puzzles and interactive activities.

 Year 4 Tudor detectives were at the ready, when we visited Plas Mawr Conwy to start off our new school year. We investigated the materials used to build the house and made felt Tudor Rose badges. We often spotted Robert and Dorothy Wynn’s initials amongst the plaster emblems, above fireplaces, on walls and on ceilings. Robert was an important local Tudor merchant and we enjoyed finding out how he and his wife must have lived from day to day over 450 years ago. We’ll use our investigating to make a leaflet for tourists to the house, build Tudor shelters for rich or poor and use a KHWL grid to find out more about the Tudor Rose. Thank you to CADW stewards who answered our questions and explained useful information.

chance to investigate plants

and animals in their habitats,

as part of our science work

On April 4th we visited Woodland Nature Reserve in Shrewsbury, to take part

in Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s SECRETS OF WASTE WORKSHOP.

Landfill site (6)

We were greeted by Ellie who explained what we’d be doing.Next we played a game that showed the life cycle of plants, grasshoppers,blackbirds and sparrowhawks.

 Following a short walk,

we learnt how we could

search for signs of wildlife.

There was lots to find!

Landfill site (34)

 Landfill site (29)

 We found a newt and a shield bug!

With Ellie’s help

we created life cycles with

the things we found.

 After lunch we went on a trailer ride

to see landfill sites owned by

Tudor Griffiths. Following another,

short bumpy ride we arrived

at the dusty recycling centre.

80% of the rubbish is recycled.

It is sorted into different pods

to be recycled and used all over

the world.

 Landfill site (19)

 Holes made by quarrying sand

and gravel, are used

to create pods in the landfill site.

All the methane gas produced

by the site is collected and used in a mini

power station. Leachate is also collected.

Do you know what leachate is?

We didn’t until our trip!

Finally we were invited to join

the Secrets of Waste Club.

We were given a bracelet on which to write

3 things we’d learnt during the day.

What an interesting day we all had!

Year 4’s dance lessons took a twizzle this February when a parent kindly volunteered her

ballroom expertise. After six lessons we could Cha Cha Cha and perform the

‘New Yorker’ with style and without treading on partners’ toes!


Chicken Week/ Wythnos Ieir

January/ Ionawr 2014

It was great fun inventing crazy instructions, how to catch a runaway San Sior chicken!

We were inspired by Roald Dahl, our author of the term’s book, ‘Danny Champion of the World’.

Danny learns about the’ Horsehair Stopper’ and ‘Sticky Hat’ methods to catch pheasants.

We noticed Dahl used time connectives when explaining the methods, so we also used-

First . . . Second . . . Third . . . Next . . . .Then . . . .Finally.

Our display shows ‘The Funky Chicken Method’, the ‘Fish me a Chicken Method’

and the ‘Glass Cage Method’ to name a few!

Journeys into Space

Art Project

Hydref/ October 2013





otis group

olivia's group

We used the Leonardo Effect to merge ourScience and Art Space topics this term.We evaluated artists’ work about journeys,including work by Welsh artists ClaudiaWilliams and Iwan Gwyn Parry.



The internet, books and our imagination inspired 4Bpencil sketches and mixed media samples inpreparation for our final group piece.As we worked on our final pieces, the Leonardo Effect happened! We began to find ourselves using’Space Talk’and ‘Art Talk’!” What’s the nearest planet to the sun?””Is Pluto the smallest planet?””Is this an exciting composition?”






It was off with the shoes and out with the buckets andspades, when six of our classes descended on West Shore!We set to work, building super sand castles for the sand castle competition. The photo below shows the moment when we waited with bated breath to find out which castle had won. When we returned to school Mr Jones gave usan ice lolly. Well done to the winners who were from Penrhyn and to everyone in Mostyn who worked hard. We had a lovely day.





Victorian Extravaganza

Llandudno, 4th- 6th May Mai 4ydd-6ed, 2013

Dosbarth Mostyn worked with a local business to make a shop window for the Extravaganza.

The nursery shop window in Mostyn Street has been transformed

into a sepia coloured, Victorian nursery.

Pupils were inspired by toys, cradles and perambulators galore!

Many tea bags and coffee granules were used to stain the pictures.

Well done to all the children who worked hard on their large drawings.



BOBs/SNAG Ebrill 2013

Year 4 have been busy working with Mrs Williams

from Bwyd o Bwys or the School Nutrition Action Group.

After learning about what makes a balanced plate,

how much sugar is lurking in our food and

how clean our hands were after washing, we were

ready to cook for our class. We made baked bean and

sweetcorn lasagne. This was a healthy and nutritious meal.

We’ll use the computer to graph the results of tasting.

Here are the delighted Year 4 winners of a

poster competition organised by our local

St. David Hospice. Their fabulous work

will be used in all the Hospice shops to

promote volunteering. Our winners received

a well deserved goody bag and a certificate

for their hard work. Well done to you all!





What a to do!

Christmas performance

December/ Rhagfyr 2012



Our Silent Night performance was based on how this lovely carolcame into being. Franz Gruber of Oberndorf and Father Joseph,composed it in the late 18th century when their church organ broke.With the first ever performance on Christmas Eve, to a guitaraccompaniment; the carol gained worldwide renown.The children gave a super performance with, thigh slappingAustrian dances, singing in Welsh, English and German andalso naughty mice to blame for chewing a hole in the organ pipe!
