I have thoroughly enjoyed this week at school. Every day we see special things happening.
The first to mention in this week's Blog must be our Swimming Squad who represented School, County and their families so amazingly at the Urdd Swimming Championships in Cardiff last weekend.
Our boys' team returned with Silver Medals - Ben, Josh B, Josh P and Kian and our girls' team narrowly missed out on a Bronze Medal - Well done Amy, Lucy J, Nia and Sophie - we cannot congratulate Ben B enough! - Number One - Gold Medal! What a fantastic achievement for all these young people and so very well deserved. Their determination is to be applauded. Well done to Gabe and Rhys for performing at County Rugby level!!
This is the time of year when we undertake a complete annual Learning and Teaching Review at school which involves talking to our learners throughout the school and listening in during specific lessons. Throughout this week, Mrs Dunlop and myself have spent time in every class from Nursery to Year 4 and we have been delighted with the manner in which our children are learning - whether we were a part of our Nursery boys and girls making snowmen, looking at cold climates or "snowball throwing" to acting out the Three Billy Goats Gruff and building homes of sticks in Reception, working with Supertato in Year One, making potions and cauldrons in Year Two, visiting Italy to watch the rugby and making pizza in Year 3 to being expert Scientists in Year Four - all our children were having fun and learning so well.
We had the Headteacher and a great group of Senior Teachers from Sketty C. P. School to join us this week, it was a great day for all -sharing our learning experiences.
Congratulations to Miss C Morgans (LSA) who won the staff medal this week, nominated for her great Values and wonderful smile and because "she just loves working at our school".
Have a good weekend.
