Today the Year 2 children enjoyed a little graduation ceremony, where we celebrated their achievements from throughout the year. Each child received a certificate unique to them, celebrating lovely positive traits, and everybody enjoyed guessing who would receive each award!
What a lovely way to end our wonderful Year together. Year 2, you are all superstars and I know you are more than ready for Year 3. “You’re off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So get on your way!” Dr. Seuss
This afternoon the whole school was presented with our Bronze siarter iaith for achievements in the Welsh language. The children and staff are extremely proud of all we have achieved during our journey to receiving the award.
In September we will begin our journey to achieving the Silver Award 🥈 to raise standards in the welsh language further.
We had a special visit today from paramedics Steff and Tash, along with their ambulance. In PSE this term we have been learning about first aid and the DR ABC method and are so lucky to have had this opportunity this afternoon. The session was so informative and the children thoroughly enjoyed having their stats read and being able to explore inside the ambulance. The children had lots of questions to ask and each of them was answered in detail. A huge thank you, I’m sure the children will remember this session for a long time!
This morning the nursery children put on their running shoes to raise money for cancer research. The year 6 children helped them to run two laps around the junior yard before they were presented with their medals. Da iawn nursery!
The children enjoyed making their own healthy snacks linked to our topic of ‘Under the Sea’. They used a selection of fruit to create sea creatures, such as fish and turtles. We revisited our recent maths lesson linked to finding half of an item and we used several storybooks to give us inspiration for our designs. They loved eating their creations at the end too!

Year 5 were extremely lucky to have a visit from Ospreys and Wales 7s player, Phil Jones this morning. Phil has played for Wales Under 20s, The Ospreys senior side and has recently travelled the World with the Welsh 7s team. We prepared for the visit by compiling open questions yesterday afternoon. We spent 20 minutes questioning Phil and used the Green Screen to transport him to the Liberty Stadium. Each of the children then had a photo with Phil, before teaching him to floss!
