Headteacher Weekly News – 16.12.16

It’s been a busy but most enjoyable final week at school.

Years 3 & 4 held their concert on Monday evening and Years 5 & 6  on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.  All the children played their part and performed their pieces and sang their songs to a very high standard.

In total, fifteen concerts/dress rehearsals have been held and well over a thousand people have enjoyed the wide range of concerts.  All the children have been superb and we hope you enjoyed the performances as much as we did.

In between performances, Year 6 visited Winter Wonderland on Monday; whilst Years 1 & 2 went to the pantomime at Pontardawe Arts Centre on the same day.  Years 3, 4 & 5 went to Vue cinema on Tuesday.  We had Christmas dinner on Wednesday and a visit from Father Christmas.  It’s fair to say the children have worked and played very hard and must be pretty exhausted!  They will be ready for a good holiday now.

On behalf of everyone at the school, I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  School starts back for the children on Wednesday 4th January 2017.

It’s been a very busy week with Christmas Concerts for the children and staff but a very successful one too.

Years 1, 2, 3 & 4 have all performed multiple concerts to large, appreciative audiences.   In addition, our choir joined the Swansea Excelsior Ladies’ choir last night to perform superbly at All Souls’ Church.

The concerts have all been different but all equally special.  The children have, quite simply, been outstanding.  Thank you for all the appreciative comments and messages the school has received.  We are glad you are enjoying the concerts as much as we are.

Next week sees the Upper Juniors perform their concerts.  It is also busy with visits, parties, Christmas lunch and a visit from somebody special in red!  It promises to be a special last week of the term.

Have a lovely weekend.

Junior children didn’t have Achievement Assembly this week because of concert practice and dress rehearsals.  Foundation Phase children receiving merits for Good Work this week were Daniel Williams, Luv Upreti, George Jones, Cherrie Morris and Neve Reardon.  Children receiving merits for demonstrating positive values were:  Sabrina Bradley, Jacob Raddenbury, Lucy Evans, Jake Jones and Megan Shoemark.  Well done everybody and keep up the good work!

It has been a very good start to the Christmas season.  Nursery and Reception classes held their Christmas concerts on Wednesday and Thursday.  Their concert was titled ‘Whoopsy Daisy Angel’.   All four performances were magnificent and  enjoyed hugely by the large audiences.  All the youngsters performed admirably.

In addition, Year 1 held their first concert this afternoon and this was equally superb.  They perform to parents on Monday evening.

We look forward to welcoming you to school over the next two weeks for the rest of the Christmas Concert season.

Have a good weekend.
