Harvest Festival

Bedwas Junior and Rhydri Primary will be sharing their Harvest Festival together at Rhydri Village Hall with Pastor Edwards on Tuesday 10th October. If the children could bring in a small food donation on the day, we will pass this on to ‘Bridging the Gap’, a Caerphilly based food bank.

We will be sending a team to the local Cross-Country competition to be held at Blackwood Show Fields on Wednesday October 11th. We wish them the very best of luck!

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.

Jeans for Genes

Both Bedwas and Rhydri will be supporting ‘Jeans for Genes’ on Friday 22nd September. The staff and children can come into school in their jeans or ‘dress down’ and make a small donation to the charity. Jeans for Genes is a national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder. The monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day provide grants for day-to-day support, equipment, nursing and patient support services, and events which bring together affected children and their families.

Curriculum Information

Attached to this newsletter is the Curriculum Information for your child’s class. This information will help you support your child’s learning at home. If you have any questions about what the class is studying, please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher or look on your child’s class hwb.

Stranger Danger

We have received reports from two schools in the area that pupils have been followed to school by a small white transit van, with a couple in it. No other details unfortunately. The Police have been informed.

Music Tuition

Our music lessons have started and the expected timetable is –

Brass – David Wheeler, Monday.

Guitar – Josh Shankland, Friday.

Recorder – Carolyn Corbin, Friday.

Strings – Rebecca Bradley, Tuesday.

Woodwind – Simeon Benavente, Monday.

Fruity Friday

Every Friday is ‘Fruity Friday’, a chance for children to purchase a pot of fresh, mixed fruit.  The cost of each pot will be 50p.  Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to help prepare the fruit on a Friday morning.  It would be greatly appreciated if any other parents/carers would be interested in helping out!

Parking on Zig-Zags

We kindly request that all parents/carers who drop off and collect children from the back of the school refrain from parking on the yellow zigzags. The purpose of the zigzags is to keep the road outside the school clear to allow children to safely cross the road. Thank you in anticipation for your support with this matter.
