The Years 5 & 6 enjoyed playing in the rounders tournament which was held at the Alun School on Monday. Although they didn't win they all played well. Our final sporting event of the school year will be a rugby tournament held at Brynford on 15th July in the morning playing against Brynford and Cilcain. All the Years 5&6 will attend.


A changeable week with the weather this week, however it was fairly dry for Forest school. The Year 1 & 2 were keen to share with me their creatures made from 'found' materials. I was also impressed with their picture of me made from leaves and pine cones. 


The children in Years 2-6 were very excited at this week's 'wet playtime' as they were able to play with their new Lego. The kits went down very well indeed!


The children were busy preparing for their summer Concert this week. The Concert will be held on Tuesday 15th July at 6.30pm. The children will perform a selection of their Eisteddfod pieces. It will be a great opportunity to share the children’s musical talents and hear their singing and Welsh recitation. In addition The Year 5 & 6 will share their 'Learning Journey' during their recent Bardsey topic.


Next week Year 6 will be out of school from Monday to Wednesday as they join with Cilcain and Lixwm on their joint residential visit to Cardiff. This exciting trip will include a tour of the Millennium Stadium, The Senedd, and a visit to the Dr Who Exhibition!


Please note due to industrial action the School will be closed on Thursday 10th July.
