Looking at Buildings

Posted by Sian Lile-Pastore on 16 September 2011

On Wednesday Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Evan James took part in the art activity that I offer to schools called 'Looking at Buildings'.

The pupils have a look at the buildings in the museum and make sketches of them, before returning to the activity space to create a 3d model. Here are some pictures of the wonderful work made.

If your school would like to take part in something similar, have a look here for more details.

I love quilt club, I really do. And if any of you would like to come along then I'm sure you will love it too!

It's a friendly, informal group and we get together and sew quilts! Quilter, and all round wonderful person Samantha Jenkins is on hand to help out if you get stuck or to help you get started if you have never quilted before. We meet every two months on a saturday morning at 11am until 12.30pm, the next meeting is on November 5th and is open to all - but please book your place by phoning 029 2057 3424.

Here are some pictures from recent meetings... I know there are more somewhere in the depths of my computer, so I'll have a hunt for those too.

Map of schools

Welcome to all of the 2,883 pupils taking part in the Spring Bulbs for Schools investigation this year!

I'm so excited, because this year we have pupils planting in Wales, England and Scotland! Take a look at the map to see the schools.

Over the next few weeks, myself and my bulb buddies will be preparing all the bulbs and pots to be send to the schools. Then all the schools will be planting on the 20th of October in England & Wales and the 26th of October in Scotland.

Bronwen Davies is the Welsh Government Climate Change Champion for Ebbw Vale.

Bronwen, who is 15 years old, spent the day at the Ty Gwyrdd in St fagans:National History Museum talking to members of the public about the pledges and actions they can take to reduce their carbon footprint.

She spoke to people of all ages and enjoyed talking to families, where parents and children could work out actions they could achieve together. She has been very busy over the last few weeks helping people to understand our changing climate. 

Bronwen became a Climate Change Champion in January after winning a competition to find six young people who can use their influence to persuade their friends, families and communities to do their bit to help Wales reduce its carbon footprint.

On October the 1st you can meet the Climate Change Champion for Cardiff - Tom Bevan, who is 16. Pop-into the Ty Gwyrdd to meet Tom and make a pledge and to find out how to reduce your carbon footrpint.
