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
It was party time in nursery today.The children looked amazing dressed in their best party clothes and costumes, They danced, played party games and had lots of tasty treats to eat. Everybody had great fun! What an amazing morning!
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.
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!
A huge congratulations to the Year 6 enterprise club ‘Attitude’ who got through to the regional finals held today in Blaenavon. Throughout the day Joe, Poppy and Carys got the opportunity to speak to a number of judges about their work and take part in some exciting workshops. The judges were really impressed with all their hard work and believed they definitely had the right ‘attitude!’ Llongyfarchiadau pawb!
This morning, we were visited by Gemma, a fire fighter from Morriston Fire Station. Gemma came into class to teach us all about ways to stay safe around fire. She read us a story about Tanni, and we talked about the dangers of playing with matches and lighters. We also learned about how to call the fire brigade, and ways that smoke alarms can help us to stay safe. The children participated in the discussion with lots of enthusiasm, and some of us even got to try on the protective clothing worn by fire fighters. We then enjoyed completing some activities which tested our knowledge in our Tanni fire safety activity books that Gemma gave us. What a fun-filled, informative morning. The Year 2s are now fire safety experts!
The Foundation Phase Film Club has been a real success so far. The children are enjoying watching films based on different themes. We have discussed how music and colour create atmosphere. The children have enjoyed watching a wide variety of films, including some which made us laugh an awful lot, and some which gave us something to think about. We are looking forward to even more film club fun next Tuesday!
