Shwmae Award!

Pupils from Class 4 and 5 attended the Tanio’r Ddraig event in Saundersfoot celebrating and developing pupil leadership.

Our Criw Cymraeg presented the work they have done developing use of Welsh in school and have now been shortlisted for a Shwmae Award -this is an award for schools that are working towards their Welsh Language Charter and that have a positive attitude toward the Welsh Language.

Last year we were delighted to win the Pembrokeshire County Council Second language award and the fact that we have been shortlisted again is a testament to the excellent work done in promoting Welsh Language and culture in school.

Outdoor Learning

Today Class 1 have been outside making mud sculptures

 

In Wales the Foundation Phase curriculum uses the outdoors as an important part of children’s learning.

Learning through play in the outdoors develops children’s physical skills as they learn. Children are able to learn in a very physical way that means that they think they are playing and so are more engaged in the tasks.

 

Research shows that children that play more in natural landscapes have better physical skills and is better for mental health and well-being. Natural environments are also full of ‘loose parts’ and objects that can be used for free play making it a great way for developing pupils’ creativity.

Activities that are outdoor learning are NOT just indoor activities taken outside. Outdoor learning gives unique opportunities for children to be more active, creative and engaged in their learning.

 

First Aid

We were delighted to welcome PCSO Carwyn and PCSO Eirian in school today.

They came to work with Dosbarth 4 this afternoon.

They taught them some first aid techniques and talked about how we can stay safe and help other people who are injured or ill.

 

A visit from PC Llewellyn

PC Llewellyn visited school thus morning and worked with Classes 4 and 5.

In class 5 we talked about the danger of taking drugs.

We know that a drug is something that changes the way your mind and body works.

We talked about the difference between legal and illegal drugs.

 

Class 4 thought about smoking – they looked at the ingredients that go into cigarettes.

 

 

 

Library Visit

This term all of our pupils have been visiting the library.

Today Class 5 worked with Mrs Johnson who organised a great scavenger hunt for the pupils as well as reading them a funny story.

All the pupils also had the opportunity to borrow books.

Next week Class 4 will be joining Mrs Johnson for their visit.

Fishguard Library opens at 10am daily apart from Sundays. It currently closes at 5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, at 6pm on Thursdays, and at 1pm on Saturdays.

 

Class 2 visit – Paul Sartori Foundation

Thank you very much to Mrs Anne Tannahill who came into meet Class 2 and talk about the work done by the Paul Sartori Foundation this afternoon.

Class 2 are busy planning a fashion show to raise funds for the Paul Sartori Foundation.


The Paul Sartori Foundation is Pembrokeshire’s only Hospice at Home Service, established for those with a life limiting illness, was founded in memory of its namesake Father Paul Sartori.

 

Father Paul Sartori, a Haverfordwest-based Parish Priest, saw a need for hospice care in Pembrokeshire.  Shortly after recognising the need he unfortunately became ill himself and died from cancer at the age of 39, in 1980.  His inspiration moved a small group of his local parishioners and in his memory friends strived to bring his ideas to fruition and so the Paul Sartori Foundation came about.
