I was starting to miss the sunshine but then we have had a little bit this morning. We have still been spending lots of time outdoors though.
The school playground has been transformed this week, certainly for Foundation Phase; we have had some new Welsh signs to encourage ‘Gemau Buarth’ (Welsh playground games). Miss Williams has received training from the Welsh Advisors. As Welsh speakers we can just about remember these games from our school days. Two of the signs are on the Foundation Phase playground and one is on the M.U.G.A.
We have also had our playground markings. These markings were the result of a grant application on a Friday afternoon! I was really pleased when we gained the £1000 and that we could put it towards something for the children to enjoy. We are also appreciative of the PTA’s donation, they have contributed another £1,000 to completely transform the Foundation Phase yard. I am sure Key Stage 2 will enjoy it too!
Everyone is really enjoying the wonderful outdoors, a definite treat at the end of the day today in addition to all the usual playtimes.
I really loved the creative Environmental Art some of our pupils had created. They had designed and made a ring holder for their jewellery out of lots of flowers. The team of artists were Emily, Alice, Teddie, Isobelle and Iris.
A very big thank you to the wonderful Dad’s who came to do some football with Years 1 and 2. The session was a big hit and the pupils were full of smiles. We had another football session on the yard afterwards. I am pleased to say the Dad’s looked as if they were really enjoying the session too - which means they will come again.
We have a busy week next week Years 3 and 4 have ‘Relax Kids’ on Tuesday. Years 5 and 6 have Mrs Sioned Ffoulkes coming into school to do some Welsh activities with them. Foundation Phase pupils can look forward to Forest School on Thursday. Lots to fit into a short school week.
