Dinas Powys Primary School Croeso


Welcome to the Autumn Term 2020

Our topic this term is....

We are going to be learning about the local area.

We are starting our learning with the story, 'There was an old woman who lived in a shoe'

Do you live in a shoe?

Please check back here regularly, we will keep you updated with our learning and we will post photographs to share.


We have worked together to paint a big shoe. 

We have all painted our faces and we have been taking it in turns to share where we live. 


This week we are looking at our local area. We have talked about the places we can visit and see in Dinas Powys.


We have made our own wood with Autumn leaves. 

If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise. If you go down to the woods today, you'd better go in disguise...

We are going to make bear masks as disguises and visit the Forest School area to look for bears...

... watch this  space!

Here are some photographs of us making our disguises. We are now watching the weather in order to plan our next adventure! We will keep you posted...

Hooray, the rain has finally stopped! We have been able to 'escape' to the forest after discovering bear footprints in the Nursery!


As well as finding bears in the forest area, we also found other animals. This week we have been talking about animals that would live in the woods in Dinas Powys.  

We have been learning rhymes and listening to stories about these animals. We have also made our own owls!

This week we started our learning with the story...


In the story George learns an important lesson about sharing. We are all learning to share and take turns in our Nursery.

We have a house/ home corner in our Nursery.


We have been learning about different types of homes and what they are made of.  We have all worked together, taking it in turns to paint a large house.


We have learnt that we live in Wales. We have learnt how to greet each other at register time- Bore da/ Prynhawn da.

We have learnt to say thankyou at snack time- Diolch.

At home time we say goodbye- Hwyl Fawr.

This week we are learning our colours in welsh- coch, glas, melyn, porffor, oren, gwyrdd 

(red, blue, yellow, purple, orange, green)

We have learnt a song- Beth sy yn y bocs? (What's in the box?)

Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term. The children have settled beautifully and were very excited to see each other.

We are continuing with our CF64 topic. This week we have listened to the story of The Three Little Pigs and learnt a song. We have been talking about our own houses and our families. Here are some of the houses we have painted...


Our value this half term is 'Courage'. 

We have talked about the brave soldiers who look after our country.

Here are some of our two colour patterns. 

We have been working together in small groups to build houses!!!!
