Pupils at both schools joined together for a lovely Harvest celebration this week. Thank you for all your generous food donations which have now been distributed to the local food bank.

Harvest Celebrations

Pupils will be celebrating Harvest on Tuesday 23rd October with a service at Rudry Parish Hall. This is a joint celebration with Rhydri Primary School and is for pupils only.

This year we will continuing our support of the “Bridging the Gap” foodbank which is based in Caerphilly. We would be grateful if pupils could bring a small food donation for the foodbank on this day.

Ffiliffest – Saturday 9th June

Our Welsh folk dancers will be taking part in this year’s Ffiliffest, which is taking place in Caerphilly Castle on Saturday 9th June from 11am.  As well as the dancing, there will be lots of other performances on stage inside the castle.  There will also be activities, sports, stalls and a food area – Ffiliffest is a community event so everyone is welcome to attend the free event!

Book Swap

A reminder that due to the success of last year’s community book swap, we will be holding another book swap on Thursday 18th January. This will be a chance for children and parents/carers to share books with each other and discover new books which can be taken home to enjoy. Children may want to donate any unwanted books given to them as Christmas presents or use this as an opportunity to recycle books they no longer want or need. Children and parents are invited to donate age appropriate books.

Children’s books will be swapped during school time and children will be given the opportunity to take home books which have been donated. Although donating is not compulsory, first choice of books will go to children who have donated. Parent/carer and teacher’s books can be swapped between 3.10pm and 4.00pm on 18th January. Any children’s books which are not taken home will be used to replenish the school and class libraries and any adult’s books which are not taken home will be donated to a local charity shop.

Please send any books for the community book swap into school by Monday 15th January. Please ensure they are in a good condition and it would be appreciated if children’s and adult’s books are clearly labelled or separated.

Library Visits

This week, each class will be visiting Bedwas Library for one session of a school day. Yellow, Green and Orange are visiting on Wednesday.

Purple, Blue and Red classes will be visiting on Friday (Children in Need day), the children in these classes could bring a change of clothes to put on when they walk to the Library if they prefer. They will need a coat and shoes for the walk in case of poor weather.
