October Report


We have had such a busy half term – they say time flies when you are having fun and that is certainly true of us here in school!

Our Value this half term has been ‘Generosity’; Year 4 led a super Class Worship, to which family and friends were invited. Many thanks to all the children and to Mrs Ford, their class teacher.

Years 5 and 6 spent a day with the Glamorgan cricket team at Sophia Gardens; they watched a match, and also dressed up in kit and played some cricket themselves! Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a trip to Barry Island, as part of their topic work. A great time was had by all! Year 6 are preparing to visit Abernant for their residential visit next week. Thanks must go to Mrs Gordon, Mrs Crouch and Mr Rhys, who give feely of their time to accompany the children.

Vicar Jon welcomed Year 5 to St Mary’s, where they learnt about Baptism and Eucharist. Thank you Vicar Jon!

Years 3 and 4 have been learning to play the glockenspiel and will be putting on a performance for parents and carers on October 18th.

As part of looking after the world all around us, the children have been busy litter picking and weeding our school grounds. They did an excellent job!

Last Friday, pupils and staff dressed in yellow to raise funds for child mental health. We are very proud to have raised over £140 for this excellent cause.

Our Scholastic BookFayre was as popular as ever. Mrs Edward, Mrs Webber, Lily, Shea and Daniyal ran the book sale for us – they did a grand job, raising over £360 for school – this will enable us to invest in some books for our school library.

Many of the children enjoy participating in school clubs – this half term, Mrs Jones has run both Infant and Junior choirs; our netball and football clubs are also extremely well received.

Best wishes from us all at Gwenfo.
