On Tuesday 14th November, the school will be celebrating Bedwas Book Day. This is always an extremely enjoyable event where the children are encouraged to share their love for reading and their passion for particular authors and books with others. Children are encouraged to dress as their favourite book character and, if possible, bring a copy of the book into school for the day.
To make this year’s book day even more special, we are very pleased to be welcoming the story teller, Daniel Morden, into school. Further details about his work can be found at http://www.gomer.co.uk/authors/danielmorden.html
To encourage the children to explore the works of Daniel Morden teachers will be sharing his books with classes during the week of Bedwas Book Day. Children will also be able to order copies of his works online if they wish by visiting the web link below:
All will be held in the hall at Bedwas Junior School.
Orange and Purple – Wednesday 13th December 9 a.m.
Yellow and Green – Thursday 14th December 9 a.m.
Blue and Red – Friday 15th December 9 a.m.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, music tutors have had to change the days they come into Bedwas Juniors for this week only. Please see below:-
Woodwind tuition will be on Thursday.

Could you please make sure pupils have their instruments in school on these days.
Just to remind you this Friday, 27th October the PTA are holding a casual day and are asking for £1 donation. Pupils do not need to wear school uniform on this day whether they bring a donation or not.
