On Friday the 25th, three year 6 children from Clydach Primary (Thomas, Leona and Seren) went to Birchgrove for RRSA (Rights Respecting Schools Ambassadors).
When we got there we went straight into the library where there were lots of different tables with different things on them. On table one they had masks, you had to decorate the masks and if you didn't know what designs to use there was sheets for help. We enjoyed the masks but time was soon up and we had to move on.
The next table was table two, which had handprints on it. You had to write on the hands about people or places you think would protect you. Here is some ideas we thought of: police, teachers,
school, coded locks, parents and houses. The time went quick and we had to move on.
Leona thought it was good. Seren thought the best bit was the food.
As RRSA we will be going to more events and finding out even more information to pass on in our school
On Wednesday evening, Mrs McComas and Sophie went to a school council conference in Bryntawe Comprehensive. It was all about the voice of the child.
At first we got picked up by one of the Birchgrove teachers called Sam along with two other Birchgrove pupils, Sophie and Megan.
When we arrived, there was a buffet with healthy snacks and beverages. Afterwards Lindsey Harvey, the the head of education, spoke to all of us about the importance of the pupils voice.
Mrs McComas said: "
It was a fantastic evening and I learnt a lot about pupil voice and how we can change things at school and the whole of Swansea.
Yesterday Year 6 went on to the yard and measured the area and perimeter of the yard.
First we worked out that two steps is the same as a metre. Then we drew a plan of the yard and gave different people different areas to measure.
After that, all of the pupils went out to the yard and measured the area. We all came together to work out the total area.
Jaydon said: " It was fun and a good way to learn maths."
Ashton said that "It was good to get outdoors to do maths."
I think that at the end the children had a score that was kind of similar. "I think that this was a good way of learning math because you got fresh air and its a way of learning every day thing."
In Clydach Primary school, the pupils have been practising hard for their Christmas play which is being held on the 5th and 6th of December.
Their Christmas play this year is Cinderella Pantomime, with Seren being Cinderella, Joshua being Rockerfella (the prince) and Leona is Buttons.
The rehearsal is going really well. Everyone is learning the lines, and working together to make the play the best it can be!
Sophie, (fairy Nuff) says, "I think everyone is working very hard, and learning their lines well. I think this concert is going to be the best one yet."
Lola, (Fairy Godmother) says, "It's really good but people need to sing louder so that the back of the hall can hear us."
We hope that this show will be one of the best shows ever, and sticks in people's minds in years to come.
