Year 4 visited the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday as part of their Ospreys Education project.  The children had digital tasks to complete at eight different stations, all focussing on developing their Literacy, Numeracy and ICT skills.  They went into the changing rooms, the press room and saw the trophy cabinet and jerseys in the Riverside Lounge.  In addition, they sat in the dug out and ran onto the pitch.  It was a super learning experience and all the children behaved impeccably.

Year 4LJ held their Family Assembly this morning.  The children presented on the work they have been carrying out about the brain and how we learn.  They spoke, sang and danced really well.  The many visitors in attendance enjoyed the Assembly very much.  It was a lovely occasion.

Year 2 are  undertaking weekly ‘Kerbcraft’ activities.  Our thanks to the parent helpers who give up their time generously to support the children and providers with the activities out on the pavement and road.    In addition, the R.S.P.B. worked with Year 2 this week, carrying out a bird watch.  The children will be using the live data they gathered in their mathematics.   The R.S.P.B. will also be delivering the topic ‘Give Nature a Home’  to each junior class in the school grounds in March.

Year 6 visited Olchfa School this morning to watch the dress rehearsal of their forthcoming show ‘Oliver’.  The children and staff enjoyed the performance very much.  It was lovely to pick out the ex Sketty School pupils, like Oscar Wood and Eve Jones,  who were performing  so well.

The Netball team have been at a festival in Swansea University today.  Thankfully, it was indoors!  The girls enjoyed playing four matches and were extremely competitive in all their games.

Mr Stewart Mackinnon has secured another term of office as Parent Governor.   Also, we are in the process of creating a Governor Picture Board  to promote with parents who the members of the Body are and which committees they sit on.

Lots of the children are very enthusiastic about raising money for charity.  They are showing very good entrepreneurial skills in setting up stalls and selling produce at break times.  The group led by Georgia Weston recently raised a fantastic £80 for Cancer Research.

The Fire Service will be giving a safety talk to Years 2 & 5 next Monday.  Year 3LC will be holding their Family Assembly on Friday morning.
