Year 6

Wow! What a fabulous few days away! We really have had a fantastic time demonstrating the 3 DYM Rs (Responsibility, Respect and Resilience) whilst having a whole lot of fun along the way!

We think Year Six deserve a little extra beauty sleep to catch up from the last few days so we’re keeping registration open tomorrow until 10am. Please feel free to drop children to school anytime between 8.30-10am. If they have brothers and sisters in other year groups, teachers are aware that they may be late in too.  Please do encourage children to come in – we can be tired and sniffly together!

Also, just to remind you that it is non school uniform tomorrow (feel free to wear pyjamas!) and so we ask that children bring in a chocolate item to donate towards the school bazaar!

Thank you 🙂

DYM Group E Update

Another lovely day with group E today.  We went on an unaccompanied walk through the forest this morning and after lunch went to the beach to have a play, paddle and ice cream.  I can’t believe that my holiday will be over tomorrow.

Day 3: Rock Scrambling and Kayaking

Dol-y-Moch Group E

I’m having a lovely holiday here in Wales.  The scenery is breathtaking, the weather is fab and it’s such a great environment to relax and forget about all of the stress back in Coventry.

Aside from that, the children in group E have been having a fantastic time creating lifelong memories.  They really have been super company, great entertainment and we really haven’t had to do a lot at all! What fantastic children you have who are very much demonstrating the three values of Plas Dol-y-Moch: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.

Here are just a few of the many snaps we’ve been taking.

Day 2: Climbing a mountain and bush craft!

God’s love for us

A huge thank you to our two prayer leaders for a beautiful prayer service today all about God’s love for us. They were mature beyond their years and not only set up the prayer focus but also led the class in prayer and instructions throughout.

It has been great to see the Year One children growing in confidence and independence every week. Well done!

Day 1: Navigation and Beach Exploration

Twisting Tinfoil and Wire Work

Over the past two weeks Year 5 have taken the next steps towards our eventual 3D sculptures.

Initially our first material was tinfoil. Children laid out their pattern to create a stick figure and worked to create a life-like pose.

        

In this week we focused on bends, twists and loops using wire as the base of our mini-sculptures.

 

The children were extremely creative after completing their first designs and many showed great persistence using small, fiddly pieces of wire.

 

Children In Need

BBC Children in Need

Today we dressed in yellow and wore spots and donated £1 each to show our support for the charity, BBC Children in Need.

We spent time in the morning exactly how this charity helps those children most in need before writing thank you notes which we are going to post to them to show our appreciation.
