Hallowe'en Bingo

Everyone came together to enjoy an evening of Hallowe’en Bingo on Friday, 21st October 2016.  There were lots of spooky creatures about and much fun was had by all!

Here are some of the spooks and ghouls that visited the school on that night!  They look very gloomy but that is because they are in character!  The pumpkin was kindly loaned to use by Dosbarth Llyn y Fan.  The ghost and one of the werewolves (yes, you were not seeing double there were two of them) won the best dressed prizes.

Nature Club in the Autumn/ Clwb Natur yn yr Hydref

In the club after school today we were thinking about the Autumn leaves and how pretty everything looked.  We had been given the bread wheatsheaf from the Harvest Service last term, as it was not possible to eat it as it was stale, we thought about helping our wildlife with it.  Together the children came up with three options of where to put it and then we voted.  The vote was in favour of putting it on the field near the nature area.  We are going to do a survey of it every week and to photograph it to see what is happening to it.  The children estimate it will take about 6 weeks to completely go!

Harvest Service Autumn 2016

A huge Thank You to all those who came along to see us and celebrate the Harvest Thanksgiving in Alpha Chapel this afternoon.  The children decided to give the money collected in donations to the appeal for Haiti.  The children all came to school dressed as the colours of the rainbow – they looked amazing don’t you agree?
