This week saw the culmination of weeks of hard work by the year 4 pupils who have been engrossed in our Lead Creative Schools project. This involved them making maths Islands, working together as part of a team and being very creative in their approach to maths and problem solving. Unfortunately I was not able to attend the carnival that showed off all their hard work on Thursday but talking to Year 4 on Friday and seeing the photos I could tell how much the pupils have got out of this project. Well done to all involved!
I spent Thursday afternoon with the cluster Year 6 teachers looking at Welsh books and ensuring our levelling if the books is accurate. Welsh has had a really high profile in school recently and it was very encouraging that our Welsh EAS support advisor recognised the strong progress we have made. Criw Cymraeg members have been really busy catching all the pupils and staff using their Welsh confidently around the school and were very proud to announce another flame on our Welsh board! We are on track to achieve the bronze award in the Summer Term.
The PTFA organised a fabulous Easter Egg hunt on Friday – many thanks for all the donations and to everyone who took part in the events. The PTFA is working really well this year and we are very lucky to have such enthusiastic and hard working members, prepared to go the extra mile to support all the children and provide the extras. Many thanks to all involved!
A short but busy week this week. Year 3 are ending the term with their class assembly and we are looking forward to catching up with Mr Langdon’s adventures in China too!
