Headteacher’s Blog 13th November 2020

Another busy week in school, keeping ourselves mentally and physically active whilst thinking of others.

We have been reflecting on the sacrifices made during wartime. On Remembrance Day the Rev Daniel came to school and walked with the Key Stage 2 pupils to the War Memorial. At the Memorial he talked about the four fallen soldiers of World War 1 who are commemorated on the cross.

The children read out poems and prayers and after a moment of reflection they laid a wreath. They then had a minute’s silence to reflect on the bravery and sacrifice. The Foundation Phase also visited the Memorial with Mrs John and Mrs Biddle.

We had a collection in school for the Poppy Appeal. We raised £52 within our school community and as Nercwys school hadn’t received any poppies for the pupils, we sent some there and raised a further £33.80 for the Royal British Legion.

Friday morning and everyone came into school with a big smile enjoying Children in Need. We also a theme night in After School Club. A little bird told me they were serving hotdogs and hot chocolate. A nice treat to end the week.

We had a lovely calm start, in Year 5 and 6. Mrs Pierce wassupporting Wellbeing with some very calming mindfulness activities. Year 3 and 4 were hard at work. The Foundation Phase pupils were all smiles ordering their lunch and moving on to Helpwr Heddiw – Today’s helper, Welsh activities. Osian and Alys were being super helpers – Bendigedig!

Year 5 and 6 highlight of the week was Forest School. Theycreated mythical creatures, and made toasties.

Everyone enjoyed Children in Need. Especially within early years - they were having a great time ripping cardboard and creating their own Pudsey Bear. They were having such a wonderful time and were full of smiles at the end of a busy week. Who is that hiding behind the Pudsey mask? I think it might be Freddie.

We raised a fantastic £55.50 for Children in Need. Well done everyone and just as important – we had a good time.

Councillor Owen Thomas was in touch earlier today, a big thank you to him for following up the concerns I raised with him following parental feedback. He has been in touch with Steve Jones, Head of Highways and told him we are very concerned about the flooding on School Lane.

Have a lovely weekend.
