Year 4 are enjoying rugby coaching with the new Rugby Development Officer Gareth George every Monday.  They are learning new skills and playing tag rugby.

We have set up a partnership with the Confucius Institute, Trinity St David. The first positive benefit of this partnership is Year 3 have started Chinese classes with a specialist language teacher every Monday afternoon.  The children are learning about the Chinese culture and some basic language patterns.

Year 5 attended a Science and Energy lecture in Swansea University on Wednesday. The talk was very interesting and informative and the children enjoyed the experience of attending the lecture theatre.

Year 3 visited Big Pit on Wednesday as part of their studies about Victorians. They enjoyed their visit immensely and going down into the mine certainly captured their imagination!  The behaviour on both these trips was excellent.

Years 1 & 2 have held their ‘Meet the Teacher’ meetings this week. Thank you to all of who attended.  We hope you found the meetings useful and informative.

Next week is busy with trips and meetings. Year 5 are having a tour of the Liberty Stadium, Year 4 are visiting the Roman Fort at Caerleon (Romans Topic) and Year 1 are going to St Fagans to learn about life in Wales in the past.  In addition, Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 are holding their ‘Meet the Teacher’ meetings on different nights spread over the week.  We hope to see you there.

All communication will now take place on this new website www.skettyprimary.co.uk  (we have changed the name to an easier one!)

Have a good weekend.
