Ty Heulog visit

Today the School Council the Eco-committee and Mr Hussey visited the extra care housing development at the bottom of Cowbridge Road in Talbot Green. The children were given a tour of the site and they asked loads of excellent questions about how the site would be adapted for the elderly and how they could help out in the future.

The children were then shown the plaque that will be in the new development . The site has been named by Eleri and Georgia from year 6 who have named it Ty Heulog.

The children have already suggested singing for the residents at Christmas time when the site is finished next year and the Eco-committee have been asked to develop ideas for the sites environmental garden.

School Clean up Day

We had fantastic turnout for school clean up day and got lots of our jobs completed!

 Parents, grandparents, teachers and children all worked together to weed the flower pots and around the school grounds.


 Everyone helped to clear our school grounds including the field area using litter pickers and sweeping brushes to clear away collected debris.



 Mr Bess did a fantastic job of keeping everyone's energy levels up by cooking burgers and hotdogs, whilst nanny Bess made tea and squash for all the troops!

 Parents worked hard to scour old paint and then re- paint both our gate and our bench.
 Our IT area in the KS2 yard has had a complete transformation with parents and children working together to dig the ground put up flowers and put down some bark chippings, whilst Mr Hussey made the school a brighter place by hanging bunting everywhere!

Here is how it looks now.
 Yasmin, Jamie, Ellery and Miss Lane worked hard to paint a welcoming design on our shelter area.

 Mia and Gabriella worked hard to water our plants in the school garden,

 Mr Hurford worked really hard with parents and children to lay a new path out of bark chippings in our woodland area and around the pond. They also cleared away a lot of the over growth in the woodlands which will allow the children to use the area more effectively.

Thank you so much to all of the parents, grandparents, children and teachers who helped to make this such a successful day and thank you to the PTA for raising the funds and providing the tools, plants, food and drink.

Your help was very much appreciated

Mrs Bailey

Channel the inner Titchmarsh in you!

Don't forget, this Saturday (18th April) is school clean up day! 

9.30am - 1.30pm - everyone welcome.

Please bring with you (if you have any):
  • your own tools;
  • any spare outdoor appropriate paint that you no longer need;
  • any spare bulbs, seeds etc.
  • your own mug for tea / coffee
We have a long list of things that we would like to get done, from painting, planting and general lugging, so any help, even if you can only spare an hour would be greatly appreciated. The last clean up day was a great success and we hope the turnout will be just as good this time. 

Please note that ALL children need to be supervised at all times.
