Lost Property

There is a large amount of lost property, this will be displayed on the school stage after school. Feel free to come in and have a look for any missing jumpers and cardigans etc.

Children in Need 15.11.19

On Friday, children are welcome to come to school in their pyjamas to raise money for Children in Need. A voluntary donation of £1.00 for taking part in the day would be gratefully accepted.

Whilst children are coming to school in their pyjamas, please make sure your child still has appropriate footwear and a coat appropriate for the current weather we are having.

‘Be Bright Day’ – Friday 22nd November

We are continuing with our Active Journeys again this year and so we will be holding another ‘Be Bright Day’ on Friday 22nd November where all pupils are encouraged to wear their brightest/most reflective clothing to promote safety when walking/cycling to and from school. Linked to our ‘Be Bright Day’ the children will also take part in a street design competition that will be taught through our PSE lessons. The winners of the competition will be announced in our ‘Be Bright Day’ assembly on the 22nd.

Fruit tasting (Red Class)

As part of our D&T project, Red class will be trying fruit. Your child will not be made to try any fruit if they do not wish to. If you are aware of any allergies your child may have, please contact the school. They will be trying the following fruit:



– apples

– clementines

– grapes

– oranges

– raspberries

– melon



We still have a few unnamed items in school. Please make sure that your child’s uniform and coat are labelled with their name, this makes it much easier to reunite lost items with their rightful owners! Also, with the colder weather now here, the children need to have a coat in school for break and lunchtimes.

Music Lessons

Thank you for the prompt payments for the music lessons. Although some of the teachers have had to shuffle their timetables around we are now hoping that everything is settled. Famous last words!

After-school Clubs

A quick reminder that all clubs led by teachers at the school will be cancelled this week due to the Parent Teacher Consultations. Any clubs led by Creazione (paid for) will continue to be on.


PGL: Year 6 update

The children are having a fantastic time and are having breakfast currently, building up their strength for today’s activities: giant swing and survivor. The children have all slept well and have been excellent representatives of Bedwas Junior School.

We will be returning this afternoon, around hometime. If, for some reason, the time changes, you will be notified as soon as possible.

PGL: Year 6

Year 6 have arrived safely, enjoyed the afternoon activities and are preparing for their evening activities. They’ve all had food and are having a fabulous time.
