We are a mixed KS2 class that are ambitious learners who thrive on challenge and solving a range of learning tasks that require us to think creatively. 

 

This page will help you find out about some of the exciting things we have been doing in our class and will give you links to websites we have used in class, information about our current topic, how to continue the learning adventure at home and also any useful information about the routines of the class.

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

 

Due to the plans to expand the CYH Quarry we have decided to look at this topic over the course of the Spring term. We will be looking at why we need quarries and what actually happens there. As part of this project we will be looking at the effects the expansion of the quarry may have on the community.

 

 

 

 

 

Some of the key topics we will cover are :

  • What quarries are and if the one in CYH is the only quarry in Wales.
  • What do they do in the Quarry?
  • The advantages and disadvantages of quarrying
  • Hopefully a visit to the proposed expansion site 
  • We will be exploring and investigating sound and in particular sound proofing materials that the site managers may have to take into account if the expansion takes place to limit the noise pollution from the quarry.

 

Look at the aerial view of Glyncoch. Do you think it looked like this 100 years ago?

 

What might this picture have looked like 100 years ago?

 

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!
