Today Mrs Johnson from Fishguard Library came to talk to us about the summer reading challenge. During the summer holidays she challenged us to read six different books.
She brought lots of different books to show us and also explained the stickers we could earn as we read. The first sticker smells like sweaty yeti!
She also told us about the different fun activities that will be happening in Fishguard Library during the summer holiday.
Lots of us decided that we would take part this year.
We entered The Lion’s Art competition.
The theme was ‘flowers’
Today they visited us to present some prizes.
Today some of Class Five visited St. Theresa’s Rest Home.
We sang to the residents. Today the songs we sang included Clementine, Danny Boy, Molly Malone, Rivers of Babylon and She’ll be coming round the mountain.
Then we spent some time chatting to them.
Here are some of the reasons we love to visit St Theresa’s.
When the residents start to sing with us
Meeting people who are over 100 years old
Seeing the residents’ faces when we are singing.
Watching them clap their hands in time to the singing
Listening to stories about when they we’re young. One lady told us about when she was a teacher and the pupils used to play tricks on her
Talking to them, when one of the gentlemen was young he loved horseriding and playing cricket.
Making people smile.
When the residents remember us from our last visit and they ask us to sing different songs.
Mrs Griffiths’ hospitality, she always makes us welcome and looks after us
Being part of our local community
Today was our final story and craft club for this term. We listened to two stories by Dr Seuss – the Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham.
Then we made our own stripy red hats just like the one the cat wore.
Today we received certificates following our recent sports day. We were very proud of everyone who took part. All the children tried their best and had fun.
Today we enjoyed two stories by Julia Donaldson – The Gruffalos Child and Stick Man. We enjoyed using our new outdoor storytellers chair for the first time.
After we had read the stories we worked together to make Gruffalo cakes. Everyone enjoyed spreading the chocolate icing and adding the mini marshmallows and chocolate buttons.
We have one more story and craft club this term…the Year 6 children are already planning the final story and craft. Some of the group talked about their favourite experiences during the club this term.
Mylo – My favourite story was The Rainbow Fish. I liked making my own fish.
Sam – I enjoyed working with the big children. They were very helpful.
Tom – I have enjoyed the cake making craft, I liked making the Gruffalo.
Toby – I enjoyed listening to The Gruffalos Child.
Lily – I’ve enjoyed working with the younger children and helping them.
Kira – I loved seeing the younger children having fun and I’ve had fun myself.
Ellie – It’s been a really good experience and I am sad that it’s nearly over.
Today in animation club we used our green screen
Pupils from class two were chased by dinosaurs, caught in a snowstorm and narrowly escaped being blown up!
