It has been a busy week with educational visits.  Year 5 are undertaking a project with the Ospreys this term and had a tour of the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday, where they undertook a variety of Literacy, Numeracy & ICT activities.  Amongst other things, they visited the changing rooms and sat in the press box.  Josh Lomax spoke very well in Assembly today about the visit.

Year 6 went to Llancaiach Fawr mansion on Wednesday as part of their History studies about the Stuarts.  The children were transported back in time to the seventeenth century and learnt about the customs of the day through role play and a variety of interesting activities.  Thea  Wilkinson talked about the visit in great detail in Assembly today and the experience had obviously had a great impact.

Year 4 went to the Roman Fort and museum at Carleon today.  They learnt  about the Roman period through a mixture of studying artefacts and participating in hands on activities.

Year 1 went to St Fagans today to learn about Welsh life in the past; in particular school in the nineteenth century.  It is fair to say school is very different these days!  The behaviour of the children on all of these visits has been exemplary.

The KS2 Meet the Teacher sessions have been held after school this week.  They were very well attended and we trust you found the meetings useful and informative.

Our whole school attendance for September was a fantastic 97.1%.  Let’s hope the children stay well and the bugs stay away as the weather turns more autumnal.

Have a good weekend.
