Our beautiful whole-school mosaic

Wow! Jody Mc Partlin from Stoneglass Mosaics has put the finishing touches to our whole-school mosaic that she has worked with the children to produce. Since Easter Jody has worked with children throughout the school to design and create the mosaic based on our school values. The project has been part funded by a grant from the Diocese. Da iawn Pawb!

Croeso!

Last week we welcomed Education Practitioners from Pennsylvania, USA who visited our school to find out about our Education system in Wales. They enjoyed observing some Outdoor Learning in our recently developed areas and some Forest School activities. They really enjoyed their time at our school and the children made them feel very welcome.

Mabolgampau 2024!

We had a lovely sports day this year, where the Year 5 and 6 children planned a variety of events based on their work on the Olympics. Congratulations to the Purple Team ‘2024 Cup Winners’.

Refugee Week

We marked Refugee Week by teaming up with volunteers from the local Refugee Support Group and Clayton Engineering to run an activity day on the theme of “Home.”

Children from across the whole school simulated the experience of some refugees.  Using donated and borrowed tents, poles, tarpaulins and groundsheets and lots of cardboard, the children separated into four nations and each made their home, as best they could.

Then two of the groups went in search of a better home and they began to travel the world. They helped each other through an obstacle course, before encountering the sea, a huge blue tarpaulin that they had to find a way to get their cuddly toy mascots across without falling in.  And would they be welcome?

Nick and Dave from Clayton Engineering joined us with two lifeboat launching tractors.  Clayton Engineering builds the machinery that launches all the RLNI Lifeboats all around the British coastline. RLNI volunteers rescue anyone in trouble at sea, including asylum seekers in the English Channel. Their cause is to save lives.

During the afternoon, children returned to their classes. 

Children in Reception and Year 1 looked at the story of Paddington and they thought carefully about the things that they would take with them if they had to leave their home.

Year 2 and 3 pupils were inspired by the work of Kate Daudy and they used a tent as their canvas for their ‘home’ inspired creations.

Pupils in Year 4  created artwork based on the work of artist Romero Britto on the theme of ‘hope’.

Pupils in Years 5 and 6 learnt more about the RLNI and created ideas for how they might raise funds for the RLNI.

Drugs - Cyffuriau

PC Ainsworth visited us today to talk about drugs; legal and illegal. She highlighted the importance of the age restrictions of things like alcohol, tobacco and vapes; they are poisonous to the growing bodies of children. Lots of pupils share their ideas and knowledge in a respectful way.
