Trip!

We are planning a trip for the summer term set arounf our topic. The trip will be at the end of June. Watch this space for more details.

Our last trip to Cilfynydd Water Treatment Works.

 

The Spring term has been a really busy time for all of us in year 4. The children have been looking at the impact of making plastic and paper and the importance of recycling them to save the planet. We are taking a trip to Cilfynydd water treatment works later in the term to find out how water is recycled. Many of the children have studied an African tale called “Mufaro’s beautiful daughters.” We have been treated to a special presentation about Uganda by Mrs Mutono. We will be studying countries in Africa later in the term as part of our geography studies.
