News Update - February 2022

Celebrating St David’s Day

We’re celebrating St David’s Day with a special assembly on 1st March and a week of activities giving a special focus to our Welsh identity and practicing our Welsh language skills. There will be a special St David’s Day menu (Published on our Website) on offer for lunch for all those who have school meals and we’ll ask everyone to wear something Welsh on St David’s Day.

During the week each class will learn a Welsh song to perform and everyone will have a go at learning the Welsh National Anthem. Over the half term break we’re asking the children from Y2 to Y6 to have a go at designing a new logo for the Criw Cymraeg (entries in for Friday 4th March please) and the winning design will be judged and used by our Criw Cymraeg team. As ever there will be lots of competitions for the week so everyone can take part and pick up points for their House teams. In addition, Year 5 and 6 will do some persuasive writing arguing that there is a value in learning the Welsh language and Year 3 and 4 children will design some posters to remind us to have a go and speak Welsh whenever we can.


World Book Day – Thursday 3rd March

The children can dress up as a character from their favourite book and in class there will be a special focus on finding out about Welsh authors.


Did you know

All foundation phase (infant) children will be entitled to free school meals from September 2022 and preparations are in place to ensure that this can happen for all primary schools in Wales. The offer will probably be made to all KS2 (junior) children from September 2023.

Welsh Government plans to restructure the school year for Wales are well advanced. They are exploring changes to the number of school terms and balancing out the number of weeks holiday between them. We’ll send you a link to the Welsh Government Questionnaire shortly so you can have your say.


IMPORTANT – The school will be closed on Monday 25th April for staff training
