Faster Higher Stronger


Welcome back to the summer term!  Our learners in PS3 have been buzzing with energy, ready for all the adventures we have planned.  We are looking forward to a visit from Tori James to share her experiences of training and climbing, swimming and we are all going to visit the Royal Mint in Llantrisant Mount Everest and it's Year 6's turn to head off on their residential to Llangrannog!  


This term, we will explore the theme of "Faster Higher Stronger" which focuses on the Olympics, inspirational people, healthy living, and trying something new.  During the topic children will engage in various activities such as, meeting Tori James and finding our about her inspirational climb of Mount Everest, visiting the Royal Mint to make a medal, exploring 3D sculptures, learning about the effects of sports on the heart and lungs and exploring different muscle groups.   We will be looking at character traits and how we can use these to achieve our goals.


During the topic we will be using technology for research and presentations on various inspirational people.  We will be creating our own biographies of Welsh Olympic athletes and following the visit from Tori James we will be writing our own adventure stories.   


We will be finishing our topic "Faster Higher Stronger." by taking part in a cluster schools Olympic event.
