Due to the PTA Halloween Disco taking place next Monday – we have cancelled both after school clubs on that day.
Well done to all of the children who did such a great job representing Bedwas Juniors at the Cross-Country tournament last week despite the horrible weather!
Good luck to all the children taking part in today’s Football Tournament in Ystrad Mynach.
Bedwas Junior School will be hosting a Lower School Roman Day on Thursday 19th October, where pupils will experience life as a Roman.
Throughout the day, pupils will take part in a range of different activities including:
- Question and answer sessions with a Roman solider
- Marching with a Roman Soldier
- Roman games
- Roman mosaics
- Roman numerals
- Roman coins
For children to fully experience life as a Roman, all children and staff will be encouraged to come to school wearing a toga/Roman attire for the day. There are plenty of ideas for home-made costumes on the internet, but if you require any ideas, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
Netball, Coding and Homework clubs will not be running after school on Thursday 19th October because of the Parent Teacher Consultations. They will resume next week. However, Creazione run Performing Arts will go ahead this week and next.
Unfortunately, there have been a few children in school who have caught headlice. It would be greatly appreciated if all parents/carers would read the suggested advice issued by the Welsh Government. Please note: Headlice is not a reason for absence from school for a full day. Once children have been treated, they are allowed to return to school for the remainder of the school day. Thank you for your ongoing support in this matter.
Please note there will be no crossing patrol until at least after the half term break.
Good luck to all the Bedwas children representing the school at the Cross-Country competition taking place in Blackwood Show Fields today.
On Monday, Lower School will be going with Silver class from Rhydri to Caerleon in order to visit the Roman Museum, Amphitheatre, Barracks and Baths.
Thank you for all the contributions that were made to support our Harvest Festival. The children were brilliant and it was great to see both schools together sharing this event. All food donated will be distributed by the local Bridging the Gap food bank.
A reminder that consultations will take place on Wednesday 18th October between 3.10pm-5pm and Thursday 19th October between 5pm and 7pm.
A very big ‘well done’ to all of the children who took part in the residential visit to Swindon and were excellent ambassadors for our school. There also needs to be an equally big ‘thank you’ to the staff who took the children and gave up so much of their time.
Please send in any outstanding payments for musical instrument tuition (£22 per term) and/or after school clubs (£15 per term). Cheques payable to Bedwas Junior School. Many thanks.
Caerphilly County Borough Council have advised us to stop taking any of the old one pound coins after this Friday, 13th October 2017. Please ensure you do not, therefore, send any in to school included in dinner money/trip money etc. Many thanks.
Slight change of plan – the film the children will be watching at the slumber party tonight will be ‘The Boss Baby’ also U certificate.
A reminder that Bedwas PTA are holding a slumber party in the school hall tomorrow from 3.10pm – 5.30pm. The cost for this is £3 which includes a film, hotdog, drink and snack. The children are welcome to bring their pyjamas along with their favourite blanket and pillow into school on Thursday morning to save going home after school. They can then get changed in school and settle in the hall to watch the film. The film will be Trolls which carries a U rating.
All school clubs will still be run even if only a small number turn up. They will finish at their usual time.
