Dosbarth Y Rhinos

Croeso i Ddosbarth Y Rhinos.  We are the mixed year 3 and year 4 class.  Our teacher is Mrs Hibbert and the other adult who supports us during the day is Mrs Williams.  We have PE on a Friday.  Our spelling tests and Big Maths tests are also on a Friday.  Our current topic is TRIBE. We are learning about Iron Age Celts.  We are learning about their homes, hillforts and daily life.  

We made finished off our topic by making some Celtic bread which we cooked over and open fire.   We also worked with the other members of our tribe to make roundhouses.  It was fantastic.  We had SO much fun.  

We used strawberries, raspberries and black currents to dye some material.  We also made some clay pots.  

We also tried some weaving.  We weaved the willow.  It was a little bit tricky.  We also weaved paper to see the technique that the Iron Age Celts would have used to weaved cotton.  

Our  second topic was "Scrumdiddlyumptious" where we focused on learning about where our food comes from; writing recipes; calculating food miles and designing and creating our own yummy goodies. 

 

We had to draw Mini Rolls from different perspectives.  It was tricky. 

 

During Switch Off Fortnight we build wind turbines out of Lego and discussed alternative forms of clean energy.  

Our first topic was Predator.  We enjoyed learning about food chains and what features a good predator has. 

We enjoyed our trip to the Welsh Hawking Centre where we learnt a lot about birds of prey and what makes them good predators.  

We loved getting up close and personal with one of the owls.
