Together we can make a difference

Topics 19/20

Our topic this Autumn Term is 'Craig Yr Hesg Quarry!'


We will be looking at the quarry during Spring Term.


- The aim of this project is introduce children to the local area.
- Although the quarry is not part of our daily lives, we would like the children to become more aware of what is going on in their community.


We will also be looking at:

  • What do they do in the Quarry?
  • Maps of the quarry 
  • The quarry expansion
  • The effects of the quarry on the community 
  • Comparing with the older days 
  • The effect of dust and noise in the local area 


Over the course of the term, we will be exploring many different areas from the children’s ideas, if you have anything linked to our topic please sent it in with your child!



As you are probably aware, we have been looking out our local quarry and the want for it’s expansion. We wrote letters to RCT to explain to them why we thought the quarry expansion was a bad idea. We were invited to read one of our letters in an RCT council meeting. We then made it onto wales online! Click this link which will take you to the wales online article!
Here we are ready to go into the meeting! 



You both did myself and our Craig Yr Hesg Team very very proud!
