On Monday, 11th April 2016 Ffg5 and Yr5 set off with Mr Price, Mr Cornelius, Mr Mason, Mrs Davies and Mrs Westlake for their educational field visit to Cardiff. In two days they were going to the Big Pit in Blaenavon, the Principality Stadium, Techniquest and the National Museum of Welsh life at St Fagans as well as some fun in Red Dragon’s Ten Pin Bowling. All with an over night stay at the Millenium Centre’s Urdd Sleepover!
Here are some of the photographs the children took with four cameras to keep a digital record of their experiences. Mrs Westlake also took photographs when they were having too much fun to use a camera and of course the group photo!
Today saw the culmination of rehearsals with the performances of ‘Christmas around the World’ by Ffrwd Gymraeg 5 a 6 and Year 5 and 6, in the afternoon and evening, for Family and Friends to enjoy. After each performance we thought they had done their best job, but they surprised us all with an even better performance the next time! It was lovely to see and hear the ‘bonus bits’ that the children added to enhance their performances which showed how much they were enjoying themself and thinking about what they could do to improve it.
The teachers and teaching assistants were delighted by the performances and it was easy to see how much the audience were loving every minute of the show from my position at the back on the lights.
We would all like to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to all the people who helped the children with their costumes, they were truly impressive and clearly a lot of work had gone into making some of them.
Here are some of the images taken this morning of the children in their various groups representing the countries featured and the main characters.
On Wednesday, 8th and Thursday, 9th July 2015 both Year 5 classes from the school went to Cardiff for a series of activities which included an overnight stay in the Millennium Centre’s Urdd City Sleepover. Here are some of the pictures taken by the children during our stay.

On Friday, 14th November we all dressed up as a Hero or Superhero to raise money for Children in Need. There were all kinds of hero represented from the people in the emergency services to family members much admired by the children to fantasy superheroes. The children and staff had great fun admiring the costumes in assembly in the morning before we had a visitor through the door. Pudsey Bear came with DJ Tomo from Radio Cymru!!!! Some of the children were interviewed and then Pudsey came into the hall to say hello!! It was so exciting!
We were able to hear the recording of the interview later in Stars Assembly which was brilliant. The Name the Bear competition was drawn too with the winner from Year 6 who picked Ieauan as the Bear’s name.
On Tuesday we sent the entries into the Blue Peter decorate some hero pants competition – they had 6,000 entries!
We managed to raise over £300 from our donations and the Naming the Bear competition which was fantastic. A huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who took part and all their family and carers who helped to get their costumes ready.
Here are some of the photographs taken on the day.
