First Lego League Discover


We were recently fortunate enough to be able to secure funding for equipment for Class 1 and 2 to participate in the First Lego League Discover Playmakers season. This event aims to develop early STEM education through play.

The pupils were delighted when the Lego sets we will need to join in the programme arrived recently and can’t wait to get started in the new year.

Gig Candelas!

Wythnos dwedaf, aeth Dosbarth phump a phedwar i wylio’r “Candelas” yn Arberth. Roedd pawb wedi mwynhau dawnsio a chanu gyda llawer o ysgolion eraill. Cawsom ni amser gwych!

Last week Class 4 and 5 went to see the Candelas in Narberth. Everyone enjoyed dancing and singing with lots of other schools. We had a great time!

Construction Club

Our new construction club received a fantastic donation of new Lego and Knex today from the Catrin Vaughan Foundation.

The equipment will be used by the after school club as well as during lessons and will help the children develop co-operation, problem solving skills and co-ordination as well as providing many hours of fun!

Thank you so much to the Catrin Vaughan foundation for helping us with such a generous donation!


Anti-Bullying Week 2018


Pupils have learned about what bullying is and ways that it can be prevented during anti- bullying week.

The focus this year has been choosing respect and treating everyone with kindness.

The children have taken part in a range of activities aimed at promoting making the right choices when interacting with others in person and online.

Class 5 planned and presented an anti – bullying assembly which they then delivered in front of the whole school.

They wrote the following prayer as part of their work:

Let us pray,
Help us to be good friends wherever we go.
Help us to make the right choices, even in the hardest times.
Help us to celebrate people’s differences and remember that we are all unique.
Help us to be someone’s reason to smile today and every day.
Amen

Class 5 Colby Trip

Our Trip to Colby Woodland Gardens 

Today we went to Colby Woodland Gardens! We had a great time pond dipping and doing an experiment on how fast the water in the river flowed. 

Firstly, we did a fun experiment on how fast the water in the river flowed. We measured a ten  meter stretch down the river. We had one person on the stopwatch and another person ready to shout STOP! We then let Mack a Duck (who was a toy duck) down the river and he  got off to a good-ish start but Mack a Duck ended up crashing (RIP Mack a Duck). But our experiment did end up working! (phew).                                                  

After our funny experiment with a bit of failure we went over to a wider part of the river. We did some kick sampling and we checked out what we found by identifying them with a key. It was fun but messy at the same time! 

After we went in the river we went back to the bus to get our food to eat. 

After that we were off! (sadly it was not the end of the school day and we had to do work.)

Pupil Groups

Pupils recently applied for a wide variety of roles within the school from display defenders to digital leaders. 

Over 100 applications were received for the various posts and staff had a hard time choosing pupils to fulfil each role from the excellent job application forms which were completed by the children.

Please take a look at the sway above to view the photographs of the children who are keen to get started in their new roles!

*School Council as elected by the pupils to be shared very soon.*

Code Club News

Members of our code club recently completed six Microbit coding

projects and received certificates to acknowledge their achievements.

Our Code Club meets every Thursday from 3.15 – 4.15 and we welcome pupils from Y4 upwards. We are very  lucky to have two volunteers (one an ex pupil) who give up their time every week to share their expertise and enthusiasm with us.

The Microbits were kindly donated to our club by one of our volunteers Nat Morris on behalf of his employers, Netflix. Code Club members have enjoyed creating a range of different games and gadgets using the devices and have begun working on more extended, independent projects.
