Mrs Evans and Mrs Teevan work together to support year 5 and year 6 children with their learning.
This term’s topics have been chosen by the children to show how learner centred learning engages all children to be active learners and promotes a greater attitude to learning by all.
Crime Scene Investigators.
Our first topic was to solve a murder in Dosbarth Ser y Mor. Pupils had to use their best detective skills to work out who the victim was and then crack the case to find a suspected school staff murderer.
The Crime Scene. Items of evidence included a hair bobble, a hair clip, a singing book and a glass with lipstick residue on the rim.
Testing acids and alkalis with litmus paper to determine whether or not the victim was poisoned with the liquid in the glass.
