The Grand Finale - The Enterprise... You're Hired!

 

The children worked so hard planning their healthy snacks, and break time saw the grand unveiling of all their healthy creations.  It was lovely to see the children selling snacks from their stalls, so proud of what they had made.  I was also really impressed by the variety of fruit kebabs, smoothies, juices, fruity cheesecakes and even some fruity hedgehogs!  Altogether the children took £66.26 and we will be forwarding the profits to Mthandeni, the child Tyndale sponsors through Challenge Ministries.  Thank you for your support, especially those of you who sent in money for younger siblings to enjoy a snack.  Photos are below for you to see the Y6 children hard at work preparing and selling their food.

Bikeability - Year 6 started their bike training today. They all listened very carefully to the instructors and worked on their balance and control of the bike. I look forward to seeing them develop more skills and confidence as the week goes on. Watch this space for more photos!

As it was such a sunny day, we decided to move our classroom outside. We enjoyed working in the shade, and it was definitely cooler than the classroom! As the weather is due to be warm all week, please remember to send your child in with a sun hat and a water bottle.

Year 6 are busy planning the perfect classsroom. At the moment they are busy working out the area they will need for everything they think a classroom should have. It was very useful measuring out potential classroom sizes and seeing if we could fit all the tables needed inside.

Final STEM challenge at Tyndale! For this challenge we had to problem solve and use our engineering skills to build a bridge that would hold 2p coins. The challenge was we only had 2 plastic cups and 1 sheet of A4 paper! We had to practise with different designs and review when things went a bit wrong. We tried to learn from our mistakes and build the strongest bridge we could. Team work and resilience were essential to help us succeed. It got quite nerve wracking at the end when Lauren and Elliot came round to test our designs.

A chat with the girls of Harlech dorm...

Thursday 30th - Our last day at Morfa Bay wink

Some heavy showers today, but much drier than yesterday!  We all got up a little more slowly this morning - starting to feel tired after such a busy week, but after breakfast we all rallied and were soon ready and raring for our activities today.  We finished the day with a disco, dancing with new friends from Randwick and enjoyed our final night.  We have had a fabulous time, but are all looking forward to getting back to our families.  We aim to leave Morfa Bay at approximately 10am, stopping for a picnic lunch at services along the M4.  We will be back to school by 3:20 but will text school with updates along the way.  Keep an eye out for texts, if possible we will also try to update this page, however this may not be possible in transit.

 

See you tomorrow!

Ginst Orienteering winners - more fabulous teamwork and clear communication. Well done team! Apologies for the rain drop - it was a very wet adventure in the woods!

Laugharne have had a very soggy day - after sea adventures they were off to do the mud assault course!

Laugharne also enjoyed the zip wire today - we are getting very good at dealing with heights!

Sea Adventures on Pendine Beach

Still image for this video
We all went down to the beach ready for our adventure in the waves. The rain didn't put us off - there were lots of smiles and giggles :)

Ginst on the Zip Wire - Sadly, we only have a few photos of our adventures on the zip wire as it got very foggy! The children were very brave though and once again showed real grit and determination. We are all getting really good at un-clipping Karabiners and climbing the ladder up the tower...just don’t look down!

Wednesday at Morfa Bay

A soggy start to our day - and it really didn't improve!  We did not let it dampen our spirits though - we have had a brilliant day working as a team and developing our resilience across all the different activities we have been doing.  We hope you are enjoying the photo's as much as the children have enjoyed making the memories.  They are being so good and you can be very proud of them.

 

Dorm inspections are being taken very seriously - there is only 1 point in it currently.  If they are as impressive tomorrow we will post photos - hope for their bedrooms at home!

Apologies for the delay! Llansteffan dorm tell us what they think of Morfa Bay.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM! After our walk we had hot chocolate, sang Happy Birthday and Sam blew out the candles on his birthday cake. He also got a gift from the team at Morfa Bay - his own welsh dragon and a T-shirt.

MTB with Ginst

Ginst group started the day off on the mountain bike track. We put on our safety gear and then started practising skills on the field. We then put them into practise on the track - a lot more challenging but great fun!

Tuesday at Morfa Bay

Another busy day today.  A slightly cloudier morning, but we did not let the lack of sun dampen our spirits.  We celebrated Sam’s birthday, completed our first Dorm inspection and this evening, after a soggy stroll down to the beach, enjoyed an ice-cream on the way back up the hill.

The dorm competition is very close at the moment, both dorms have lost  points but have been working as a team to ensure they are ready for inspection tomorrow morning.  The boys made a very impressive improvement this evening when they earned bonus dorm points for turning their own lights out before the teachers even asked them too! 

The boy’s dorm have all shared their thoughts on the Morfa Bay experience, tomorrow night we will hear from the girls.  We hope you enjoy the photos and videos from today’s activities – tomorrow promises to be another action packed day.

After a very tasty dinner, we went off on our Morfa Bychan evening hike. We explored the coastline around Pendine and saw some beautiful views. Some of the paths were rather tricky to walk up and down, so we had to take real care not to slip. We walked so well we had time to sit on the pebble beach and enjoy exploring before heading back to Morfa Bay for some hot chocolate before bed.

Laugharne (pronounced Larne - we had to ask!) joined their instructor on the archery field to practice their target skills. We will find out at the end of the week who was the best female and who was the best male archer out of all the children in Tyndale.

Ginst Group started off their Morfa Bay adventures with some abseiling. We had to be very brave and face our fears!

Morfa Bay

After a long journey to Pendine, we were very glad to get off the coach - we were met with glorious sunshine and the staff helped to unload our bags from the coach.  After a welcome meeting in the 'Crow's Nest' we went outside to enjoy our picnic in the fresh Welsh air.   We didn't have too much free time though - we put our bags in our dorms and got into our teams for our first activity.

STEM at Tyndale

Today (Wednesday 15th March) we had the second visit from our STEM Ambassadors - India, Elliot and Lauren from Leidos.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  Two weeks ago they told us about their jobs, and how the STEM subjects helped them achieve success in their career.  We had some work to before their return.  We had to think about our aspirations for the future, and the jobs we would like to have.  Then we had to think about how the STEM subjects could help us be successful. We were amazed how many jobs used different aspects of STEM.  From tattoo artists, YouTubers, nurses, athletes and even performers on stage we realised just how important all these subjects are.  Maths especially - so we could count all the money we earn!  Science was important for aspiring footballers and rugby stars as we became aware that we needed to understand how to keep our bodies fit and healthy, we needed  maths to help us light the stage at the right angle so our audience could see us and technology would be key for tracking our training performance and vital stats to see how we could improve our fitness, speed and pace as athletes.  

After we had shared our future careers and discussed the skills we needed we were set a challenge - to create a real life piece of code.  We needed to write a set of instructions to guide our partner through the maze, avoiding the deadly obstacles and returning to the spaceship.  This was very similar to when we used scratch on the computers at Brimsham Green and helped us consider the importance of giving clear and precise instructions to ensure our programme was successful.

The afternoon flew by, and we cannnot wait to see what we do with the STEM ambassadors next week!

Visit from the STEM Ambassadors!

The children in Buzzard Class have done some amazing homework based on 'Shadows and Light' - our science topic last term. Here are just a few photo's of the work the children produced. We enjoyed puppet shows, presentations - including some great scientific vocabulary, books, posters and even some light bulb bunting full of facts! The children were really imaginative in how they decided to produce their homework. Well done to all of those that completed the task and thank you to all of their parents for supporting them in their endeavours! Apologies if your homework is not showcased, these were the photo's we managed to get during our homework presentations this morning.

We are going into space for our topic in terms 3 and 4! Please have a look at what we are learning.
