A very busy week of rehearsals, performances and creativity!
This week has been our Design Technology focus week where classes have been busy working on their projects for school Summer Fayre. Each year group has a £20 resources pot that they must use to create a product for their class stall, the aim being to cost the project, keep to budget and generate a profit for their class. Pob lwc!
Year 1 have been busy making sandwiches & cakes for their Paddington Bear inspired Afternoon Tea Party. It was fantastic to see the children enjoy a wonderful afternoon with their families in our beautiful school garden. Many thanks to those who were able to attend and support the event. Diolch.
Year 3 enjoyed a morning at Whitmore Bay exploring rock pools as part of their topic work. After the hard work, there was just enough time for a well-earned ice cream! Back at school they then used branching databases to categorise and sort the creatures they had discovered.
On Wednesday our Nursery children performed a wonderful Graduation celebration on the school hall stage for their families. Thanks to those that were able to support the children who were an absolute credit to their proud families. Well done!
On Thursday Year 4&5 were guests of the Arts Council of Wales who kindly funded our trip to the Wales Millennium Centre to watch the acclaimed theatre production of Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Warhorse’. We had lots of tears and laughter and it was a truly memorable experience for the children.
Our week was brilliantly rounded off by our Year 6 summer performance out under the school yard stage and shelter. Families were treated to an outstanding performance and I’m sure those happy memories will be cherished for ever. Ardderchog Dosbarth Derw!!
Reminder: please don’t forget to call in to the office if you need new uniform ordering forms from Miss Treweek. Diolch.
