It’s certainly been a busy week back after half term.    We  celebrated St David’s Day on Wednesday.  A big thank you to the children (and yourselves) for all the competition entries.  They have worked exceptionally hard.  There is a wonderful variety and the standard is exceptionally high.  We hope the children enjoyed taking part.

We held our Junior Eisteddfod this afternoon.  We were treated to many excellent performances, including beautiful singing by Ellie Traylor – Holland.  Certificates were given out to the competition winners and placed entries, judged by the Criw Cymreig and teachers.  Many congratulations to Rosa MacGowan (pseudonym Black Panther) for being crowned Bard for her excellent poem.

We celebrated World Book Day yesterday.  The children (and staff!) looked amazing in their costumes.  The boys and girls enjoyed using maps to search for Wally in the playground.  The juniors took part in workshops in the Dylan Thomas Centre.   Year 2 also had a visit from an author yesterday afternoon, who shared writing techniques with them.  Thank you for supporting the Book Fayre after school this week.

Year 2 parents have been in school this morning, helping the children make capes, as part of their Topic on Superheroes.  There were some very eye catching designs and the boys and girls enjoyed the learning experience very much.

Year 3 SK held their Family Assembly this morning.  The theme of their Assembly   was Natural Disasters and Wales.  It was both very informative and great fun.  The large audience enjoyed the Assembly very much and helped sing ‘Land of Our Fathers’ with  lots of passion!

We have another Community/P.T.A. Grounds tomorrow morning.  The plan is to paint fences and further clear the area by the Foundation Phase playground.  Please can you bring a paint brush along with you if you are able to help. The weather forecast isn’t too promising but we aim to start at 10 a.m. and see how it goes.   A  text will be sent by 8.30 a.m. if we have to postpone.  Otherwise, we hope to see many of you here tomorrow.

Have a good weekend.
