May 11th / Mai 11fed

Dear Parents and Carers
A shorter week of course, because of the Bank Holiday, which was blessed I’m sure you’ll agree, with spectacular weather. I hope you all made the most of it! We continue to settle in here, chipping away at all the snags, putting up various displays and getting to grips with everything.

Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
Mae wedi bod yn wythnos fyrrach wrth gwrs, oherwydd Gwyl y Banc. Rwy’n gobeithio eich bod chi i gyd wedi gwneud y gorau o’r tywydd ffafriol! Rydym yn parhau i ymgartrefu yma, mynd trwy rhestrau o wallau, gosod gwahanol arddangosfeydd a mynd i’r afael â phopeth.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth

Cricket Sessions – Thank you to Rob Ward who provided our pupils with their first cricket session this week. Year 1 and 2 had sessions which were fun, enjoyable and action packed!

Creative Project – Year 3 had another hands on day in their creative project this week. All classes will be provided with a session before the end of the academic year, as everybody will have input into a very special piece of art that will grace our Reception area. Watch this space!

Achievers – We had a big group of achievers this week, which was great to see! Students of the Week, including for Welsh, were Mathew, Tiffany, Stacey, Logan, Leyla, Sophie, Freya, Abbie, Tilly, Declan, Oliver, Cadie Ieuan, Maha, Grace and Eszter. Swimming certificates went to Jay and Daniel, Triathlon medals to Isaac and Alex, a gym award to Jessica, an Aquathlon trophy to Nathaniel and a certicate to Beau for his fundraising efforts. Well done to them all!

Brynhyfryd Open Evening – Our Year 6 pupils move ever nearer to the next step into the Secondary Phase and those moving to Brynhyfryd were handed a special golden ticket inviting them to a special VIP Evening at Brynhyfryd on May 17th from 5-6.30pm, with mystery prizes and gifts on the night. It all sounds very intriguing!

Church Project – Reverend Stuart attended service this morning, inviting each class to write a message on a piece of slate that will be placed in the roof at St. Peter’s Church as part of a forthcoming repair. The pupils got to grips with the task during the day.

Rugby Success – Some of our pupils have had some success playing with both the Ruthin and North East Wales Teams. Matthew, Raif and Reuben played in Builch Wells this week, winning 4-3 against South Powys, winning through to the semi finals of a national competition, with the next round in Flint. The Ruthin team also had great success in Bethesda at the weekend. The NE Wales team compete in Swansea at the weekend.
