Mr Young reports that our Year 6 children have had a fantastic time so far at Dol-y-Moch. Here are just a few photos of some of the children to give you a taste of what they’ve been up to. More photos will follow.


Children in Need 2021

The children have had such a fun day raising money for Children in Need. Every class has done something a little different, which has made it extra special, and every class has enjoyed the outdoors activity, kindly set up by Mrs Reihill and Mr Cotton.

Thank you, parents, for supporting such a fantastic cause, and for helping the children enjoy the day.

A Warm Welcome For Little Amal

In school this week, we have created Footprints of Welcome that the children would want to present to Little Amal, a 3.5 metre-tall puppet of a young refugee girl, created by the acclaimed Handspring Puppet Company. Representing all displaced children, many separated from their families, Little Amal is walking across Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the UK, with a finale event in Manchester, England in November 2021. She is travelling a remarkable 8,000km in total, celebrating the power of art and shared humanity wherever she goes, and will be visiting Coventry on Wednesday 27th during half-term.

All of our children have learned more about the experiences Little Amal may have encountered through reading The Day War Came by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Rebecca Cobb, a powerful and necessary picture book about the journey of a child forced to become a refugee when war destroys everything she has ever known.

Imagine if, on an ordinary day, war came. Imagine it turned your town to rubble. Imagine going on a long and difficult journey – all alone. Imagine finding no welcome at the end of it. Then imagine a child who gives you something small but very, very precious…

Here are just some of the messages our children created, showing great empathy towards Little Amal and all displaced children around the world. We are so proud of our children and the way they always demonstrate our school values.

Tasty Tuesday on Wellness Wednesday

This morning, Year 6 were making their very own salsa as part of healthy schools week. The children enjoyed creating their own dish using simple ingredients such as tomatoes, onions, fresh coriander, garlic and lime – they did this with little to no instructions. Mr Young judged their work Paul Hollywood style but due to the impressive quality of each dish, found it very difficult to decide on a winner!

Well done everyone and I hope many of you try this recipe out at home, your parents will love it!

Empathy Day Activity Pack

Next Tuesday is Empathy Day, where the focus is on how reading can help children (and adults) to build empathy.

Empathy has been described as a human superpower. It’s our ability to understand and share someone else’s feelings. Empathy is made up of three main elements:

  • feeling,
  • thinking
  • acting.
This video shows the difference between sympathy and empathy.
In the run up to Empathy Day, Empathy Lab have created a lovely activity pack of things you can do to build an understanding of what empathy is and encourage it at home.

Being World Autism Awareness Week, we mustn’t forget that we are all special; we all have things which make us different, unique, special.

For today’s activity, think about what makes you special. What are you good at? What qualities do you have? Are you kind? Do you always think about others before yourself? Which of our school values do you really demonstrate every day? Create a cartoon character of yourself as a superhero. If you want to extend the activity, create a comic book about your new superhero. I have attached a comic book frame below for you to download and print off, or use as a guide if you use plain paper or your exercise book. Please email a photo of your superheroes to

Resilience in Year 6

Year 6 had a visit from the school nursing team this afternoon, to talk about resilience. The informative session educated the children about the effects of drugs, smoking and alcohol and how best to handle peer pressure. The children took it in turns to wear beer googles to get a real feel for what negative effects alcohol has on co-ordination. Thank you to the nursing team from all of Year 6.




Recipe for a Good Friend

Year 2 had a great afternoon discussing friendships.  Using their knowledge of instructions, they came up with a recipe for making a good friend. A handful of kindness, a spoonful of sharing and a sprinkle of helpfulness were some of the ingredients mentioned. Well done Year 2, we think you perfected the recipe.
