Sports Day

Foundation Phase sports day is still planned to go ahead on Monday 27th afternoon, starting at around 1:15. While it has rained today we are hopeful that the track will be fine.

Please can your child wear their P.E kit to school, preferably wearing their house colour top if possible. (Rhonnda = red, Cynon = green, Taf = yellow, Trisant = blue). They will also need a drink and possibly a sun hat (Hopefully!).

All parents and family members are welcome to watch and the gates to the field will be open from 1:00. Can you please not cross the track to see your children as this disrupts the flow of the event and we have a lot of great races to fit into one afternoon.

There will be a 'link-up' race for all the pupils who will be attending Nursery next year.

Finally, we have no restriction on cameras, please feel free to take photos of your children, however please be mindful when sharing images on social media that other children should NOT be in the photos.
Thank you for your continued support.

National Armed Forced Day

The School was represented excellently by our School Council and Eco-Committee members from year 4 and 5 this week at the National Armed Forces Day flag ceremony in Beddau.
Representing the school were Pati, Bradley, Iola and Oliver who joined with pupils from other schools in the area to show our respect for the soldiers who have protected our country in the past and those who continue to protect our country today. It was a good chance for the children to meet some veterans and talk to them about their medals and what they used to do.

Clean Up Day

Thank you to all the parents and children who came to help us tidy our school last week. We planted some lovely flowers and had a good clean up.

 Riley and Jack from Reception helped to lay some fresh bark in the garden and dig up some weeds.

 The Year Four boys helped us to carry the compost so that we could re- fill all the plant pots in the Foundation Phase playground.
 Miss Lane put some compost in the tyres ready to plant some potatoes with Nursery and Year One.
 Mrs Doyle gave us lots of flowers to put around the school. Riley's' mum and Kazer's mum helped to plant the flowers at the front of the school and in the playground.
Thank you to the PTA who provided the compost, bark chippings and flowers for around the school.

Morfa Bay

i am delighted to say that Year 6 are having an awesome time at Morfa Bay. We are just about to embark on our final activity-down the beach!
They have been an absolute pleasure- a credit to themselves.
See you all later and hopefully I will be able to upload some photos onto here when we get back to school.

Eco-School Award

Congratulations to all the pupils on the Eco-Committee both this year and last year who have helped the School to achieve the third renewal of our Eco-School Platinum award flag!
We are one of very few Schools to have got this far in the project and the continued work we do in the outdoor environment, the garden, the woodland and pond as well as helping out in our local area and community helped us to achieve this excellent award.

Well done to everyone involved!

National Test week

Next week (Tuesday 3rd May - Friday 6th May) is the Welsh National test week for pupils in Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. The pupils will sit three National tests on Reading, Procedural Numeracy and Reasoning Numeracy. It is very important that the pupils are in School on time during this week. Any pupils who are absent during this week will still have to sit the tests at another time.
Thank you for your continued co-operation.
