Celf a Coronation

Please join us in the school hall on Wednesday 3rd May at 2pm for a Celf and Coronation Fayre. The   children will be displaying their art work and selling their ‘Coronation crafts’. Please come along and support them if you can. The children have been using their enterprising skills by researching, marketing and pricing their products ready to sell. Ardderchog pawb!

Coronation Disco

A huge thank you to the PTA for organising the Coronation Disco on Thursday. There will be a foundation phase disco at 4pm until 5pm but parents of nursery pupils are asked to stay with them. Those children who become overwhelmed by the noise of a disco are invited to attend the quiet disco at 4pm in the JSTF. Please use the JSTF door to access this.

The Key Stage 2 disco for Years 3,4,5 and 6 will be at 5pm-6pm. Tickets cost £2 and are available from Mrs Pompa or Mrs Seager in the school office. The PTA are looking for some Foundation Phase parents to help sell hotdogs, sweets and drinks at the disco. If you think you can help out, please let me or your child’s class teacher know. All help gratefully received!


As part of our Religion, Values and Ethics Curriculum, our children will be visiting places of worship such as the local Church, Swansea Mosque and a Sikh temple to name a few.  I am sure that you will agree that the children need opportunities to:

 · develop a sense of their uniqueness and value;

· reflect upon their own beliefs, values and actions and express and justify their own feelings and opinions;

· show empathy and consideration for others;

· develop compassion and help others;

· develop a voice and listen with respect to the voices of others;

· form good relationships;

· talk about themselves in relation to others;

· gain awareness of and respect for the beliefs, teachings and practices of others, as well as an ability to articulate their own;

 · explore how religious and non-religious worldviews impact on the lives of individuals, the local community and wider society.

Visiting these special places of worship with their teachers and friends will give them confidence to ask questions and explore their surroundings in a respectful and inquisitive way. If you would like more information about our  school curriculum please contact me on 01792 893682 or come along to our next parent focus group on Thursday May 11th at 2pm.


We are looking for volunteers who might have a spare hour or so every week to hear readers, help in classes with art or gardening or even share a particular skill with the children. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me on 01792 893682 for a chat!


I would like to remind you to drive at 5MPH in the school car park and the surrounding areas. A black car was seen driving dangerously in the car park this week and a nursery child had to be pulled back. This is being investigated so if you know the driver or have any information about this incident please contact me ASAP. Please be vigilant and walk safely with your children, holding their hands if they don’t have any road sense yet, and using the pavement rather than walking through the carpark.

 Remind your children to follow the ‘Kerb craft’ rules.

Water/ beach safety

The children took part in an excellent assembly on Tuesday. Joe and Sam from the RNLI came to school to teach the children about what to do in a water emergency and how to stay safe at the beach. They had a sound understanding to start with but by the end of the session it was clear that they had learnt much more. Thank you to the children who volunteered to take part in the activities and those who answered the tricky questions. I’m sure if the children visit the beach this weekend they will tell you all about it! Da iawn pawb.

I hope you all have a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend; fingers crossed for sunny weather.

See you on Tuesday!

Mrs Davies
