We had a mega busy week in school before closing for the summer with plenty of fun and various activities going on throughout the week.

A bonus were the valueable photos that captured the day!!! Swel’s Poetry Competition - our theme this year was ‘pirates’ and from reading all the pupils’ poems, it was apparent that they all enjoyed the work! Chief Poet Elwyn Edwards or as we all fondly know him Swel, was full of praise of the high standard of poems that were full of comparisons unique and effective. Anya Roberts and Cara Jones were the winners of the best sentence with Rachel Edwards creating the best verse. But winner of Poet of the Year was Hannah Griffith. Hanna‘s poem stood out from the rest and Swel was so pleased with the standard and choice of wise words. Congratulations Hanna and thanks again to Swel this year. Visit from Teleri Davies - it was a pleasure to welcome Teleri back to the school to show us her Wales cap and shirt, after representing our country in the Womens Six Nations against Scotland back in February. We are so proud of Teleri’s successes and her proud achievement especially as a former pupil of the school. It was interesting to listen to her experiences, her rugby career and of course a report of the game from her perspective. Congratulations again to Teleri and thank you for her time. All the best for the future. Dad v Mum’s Game! - It was that time of year again with the dads and mums of the schools taking on the pupils in football and netball matches. We had an exciting and fun day with everyone enjoying the games. The red team came out on top in both tournaments and more importantly the pupils won the important game which was winning against the adults!!! The girls netball won 4-3 against the mums and the boys won 8-2 against the dads. We thank everyone who came to take part and contribute to the day. SO58 Competition - KS2 pupils had a great opportunity to design a t-shirt for Tim Williams, Anni May from reception’s dad to sell as part of his popular business Spirit of 58. The designs were fantastic and Tim decided to reward 9 pupils in total but the design that came out on top and the idea that will be on a t-shirt and sold at the Eisteddfod down in Cardiff this wear was from Mared Rowlands with the slogan “dad is football mad!”. Congraulations to Mared, what a special prize and thanks to Tim for his generosity and time towards the pupils. Saying goodbye to Year 6 - it came the time to say goodbye to 19 of our special pupils. We have been very fortunate to have such a great year 6 who have been a brilliant example to everyone. Its been a pleasure to teach them and see them flourishing over the years.
