Criftins Church of England Primary School

Spring Term 2023

Anglo Saxon History Day.

Today was a totally different day as we welcomed the fabulous Miss Evans for a FULL day dedicated towards History. Starting with the concept of Heritage and local study we began our study of King Offa and Offa’s Dyke. As the day progressed we had great fun doing a quiz and also producing Coins in the style of what would have been used. Great fun, great learning !

Weekly Picture News.

Each week we focus on current events in the news. We use a wonderful resource called Picture News. This week we started the process of our Year 6 delivering the Assembly. Wonderful opportunities for leadership, organisation and reflection.

Oswestry Shop Front PowerPoint Presentations.

On Friday we will be travelling to AICO in Oswestry to present our ideas about the shop front. Working together in our groups we have photographed our models, used our sketches and designs and begun the process of using Microsoft PowerPoint to present our ideas. At AICO we will use their facilities to showcase our work. 

First Aid Medics.

Learning about life saving is an essential skill. At anytime an accident could occur in school, out on the streets or at home. Knowing what to do in an emergency could save a life.

Over the new 3 weeks class 4 will be finding out about First Aid techniques.

Computing and Audacity

This term we begin an exciting and new topic using the wonderful Sound Editor Audacity.

Police Talk

Today we welcomed West Mercia Police as they came to talk to our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. Knowing about how to stay safe is an important life skill. The police today shared understanding of how to deal with strangers and also drug awareness.

Safety talk from the police.

Oswestry Action Zone.

Over the past few weeks pupils have been using Home Learning time to focus on creating a 3d model of their Shop Front and interior. Each shop design is part of our Oswestry project where we have been asked to think of a shop for Oswestry. 

Epiphany and Journey Day

Our first week was a huge celebration as we all gathered to celebrate Journey Day. This is a very special day which involves the whole school and develops our understanding of Christianity and stories from the Bible.

English Pathways.

As we begin our New Year we also begin a new unit of work using the beautiful book of Kai and The Monkey King.
