Our Chess team went to Cardiff City Stadium on Monday to take part in the Wales/West of England finals.  There were over forty teams present and the standard of competition was extremely high.  At the end of play, Sketty finished in fourth place.  Congratulations to our team (Raymond, Matthew, Daniel, Chandra, Josh, Andrew, Charlie, Vamsi, Ashton and James) on this excellent achievement.

Year 6 girls Rebecca, Lola, Madison, Jessica and Shannon competed in the UK Street Dance competition at Alton Towers at the weekend.  They achieved fantastic results, both individually and as a team.  Many congratulations to the girls on their success.

It’s been a busy week with parent/teacher meetings being held after school each day.  As ever, they were very well attended.  I trust you found the meetings useful and informative.

Everybody enjoyed Children in Need day today.  Thank you for supporting the event by helping the children dress up in spots and stripes.  There were some brilliant combinations!  Also, thank you for the generous donations of cakes for the cake sale.  Altogether, we raised £332 for good causes.

The Week Ahead

Year 5 have a contact rugby tournament on Thursday at Morriston Comprehensive School.  This will be a good opportunity for our committed and enthusiastic Year 5 players to experience game time as many have only taken up the sport this year.  Year 6 will be having their own tournament in the Spring Term.

In addition, Year 5 will be receiving a visit from current Ospreys player Rob McCusker on Tuesday, as part of their Ospreys project work.  Rob will be talking about his experiences as a professional rugby player and will take part in a question and answer session.

Have a good weekend.
