Our New Topic for the Spring Term is
May the Force be with You
We enjoyed going outside looking at things we can pull and push.

Our first job in Dobarth Porffor was to decide on our 'Class Rules'
We then enjoyed acting these rules out. Here are just a few.
Be good friends to each other
Always put your hand up to ask or answer a question
Re-cycle the paper
Two ladies from the Welsh National Opera came to work with us today. We enjoyed listening to them sing and we all loved singing along with them!
We enjoyed our day in Barry Island. We came 2nd in the sand castle competition and we loved eating our chips and ice-cream.
As part of our World War 2 topic we visited the Firing Line at Cardiff Castle. We had the opportunity to dress up as evacuees and soldiers and we were able to see what it was like to be in a trench.
These are memories from last year 2016-2017
Croeso i Dosbarth Porffor!
Sut ydych chi heddiw?
Academic year 2016/17- All of the children in Dosbarth Porffor are in Year 6. Mrs Naish, Mrs Elrayes and Mrs Beynon are the staff who work with the children in the classroom and Miss Price is the Speech and Language Therapist.
This term our topic is Bore da! Bonjour!
We are finding out about the differences between life in Cardiff and Paris.
We are learning some Welsh and French words.
We have tasted Welsh and French foods.
We are also looking at art and sculpture in the 2 cities. We visited Cardiff Bay and found lots of different sculptures. We would like to visit Paris but it is a very long way!
We found out more about the life of a Victorian child by going back in time and having our own 'Victorian Day'.
We dressed up and used the same kind of equipment that the Victorian children would have used. We used chalk and slate boards, pen and ink, Victorian toys at playtime and an abacus. The teachers also dressed as Victorians and were very strict! We weren't allowed to speak welsh and if we didn't listen we (pretended) to have the cane! Lunch was a bowl of porridge.
This term we will be learning about The Victorians and Our Body.
We have visited St Fagans and found out what it was like to be a pupil in the Victorian era! All of the children decided they would rather be at Meadowbank School!
We will be comparing the things children did in the past, to the way we live now. We will be looking at what the Victorians homes were like, their food, their clothes, schools and working conditions. We will be cooking Victorian recipes and dressing up in Victorian clothes.
We have also visited Techniquest and took part in a fantastic work shop. We will be finding out more about how our bodies work and how to keep fit and healthy.
December 2015 - During December the pupils worked very hard to learn their lines for the 'Children of the World' Christmas performance. They all did a FANTASTIC job as angels and their acting ability (apart from Mr. Beesley) was super!
On the last day of term the staff organised an elf hunt along the Taff Trail. As you can see from the pictures the children had loads of fun.
