Today, we celebrated a busy week’s learning with another packed Parent Sharing Assembly. Many family members joined us to see and hear about a wide range of activities and topics that have enthused and engaged our pupils.
We began with a performance of ‘Sing it in the Valleys’ from our choir. This was followed by a range of activities, on Santes Dwynwen, in response to ‘Stori Dwynwen’. Year 6 told the story in Welsh and showed pictures of Dwynwen. Year 2 added speech bubbles to the story in English and acted them out. Year 5 told the story in comic strip format. Year 3 described the characters, in English and Welsh. Year 1 showed love spoons which they had decorated. Finally, Reception class sang a Welsh song ‘Dwynwen yn y cwch’.
Next, Year 4 showed their work modelling and describing the organs in the human body and then the HeartStart club showed how to respond on finding a person who is unconscious.
Finally, we heard about the latest developments in Prayer Club, before celebrating our weekly award winners.
Thank you to all who contributed and attended. We love Friday Sharing Assembly.
Our GIFT (Growing in Faith Together) team have started working towards their mission in school. Yesterday, they once again visited our youngest pupils, in Nursery. They taught them a new way to remember how to make the Sign of the Cross.
‘From my head to my heart, from my shoulder to my shoulder, I love you Jesus, Amen.’
GIFT team members then helped the children decorate colourful crosses. Congratulations to our wonderful GIFT team and thank you to Miss Copp for bringing such a lovely idea to our school.
Also, this week, they have started Prayer Clubs for children in Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2. They have been teaching the children about exciting new ways to pray.
Their next big assignment will be to assist the children in Year 3 with their preparation classes for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
Keep up the good work, team.
As you are aware, school budgets are being further reduced and the Governing Body are searching for ways to save money with minimal impact on pupils’ learning experiences.
This term, as part of our attempts to reduce photocopying costs, we have introduced the use of email communication for letters etc. Of course, there are likely to be some teething troubles but we thank parents for their support with this initiative. We hope, in the long run, that this will not only save money but will actually improve the effectiveness and reliability of our communication with parents.
