DOSBARTH CERIEN went to Caerphilly Castle.
On Tuesday we went to Caerphilly Castle on a bus. We collected information about castles because our topic is castles. First we went to see the siege machines they were used to attack the castles.We heard an interesting story about the dragons when they blew smoke out of their nostrils. Then we went to push the leaning tower with the statue but it didn't budge! Next we went in a room with a small tv in it and we watched how they made Caerphilly Castle. We found out that Gilbert de Clare built the castle in 3 years. It is the largest castle in Wales. The castle has narrow arrow slits and the castle has 3 moats. We went up a spiral staircase but Harley was terrified because he thought he was about to fall down! Parmida was in the stocks and we pretended to throw rotten fruit at her. After that we went to the Great Hall where there were symmetrical shields on the thick stone walls. There was also a spectacular, cosy fireplace and we saw a stage for the minstrels to play music. We went to Gilbert's room with a big window that was supposed to have glass in it otherwise the fire would blow out. He had glass in his windows because he was a very rich man because the glass window was expensive.
Finally we went on the bus and we went back to school. This was the best trip we've ever had!Thank you for reading this.

House building for the 3 Little Pigs
This afternoon we had great fun following instructions on how to build a house for the 3 Little Pigs. We now know how important it is to write clear instructions because we had to follow the instructions written by another team!
Congratulations to the team who collaborated well to write such clear instructions, and well done to Zak, Armita,Nuha,Harley and Jayden who followed them so closely and built a house that didn't get blown down ! We even managed to apply our measuring skills to record how far each house had been blown by the big bad wolf.
SEF is a super learner designed by Dosbarth Cerien. He can punch through tricky work and has the power to persevere - to keep going when the work is tough. We hope he is going to give his super learner powers to us as we begin to climb Challenge Mountain.
