Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : November - Article 19

Right to be safe


It's been a busy and productive week in all classes with lots of exciting things happening. Our choir were super at the Rememberance Service last week. They braved the torrential rain to sing their hearts out. Thanks to Mrs D and Mr M for attending. Please click here.


We had some amazing news this week as we received a beautiful card from King Charles III and Queen Camilla, who wrote to Ruby, Sully and Zac to thank them for their wonderful coronation postcards! - see pics below.


CIN 2023

Today, we celebrated our talented children by holding a talent competition in aid of Children in Need. Due to our generous parents/carers we have raised an amazing £126 so far! WOW! Thanks.


The PLTD and Mrs Garcia have worked very hard coordinating this great event and the judges had such a difficult job to choose winners. Well done !

Please see photos below!  The atmosphere in the school hall was tremendous as children cheered on their friends and were entertained! Many thanks also to our Friends of Penclawdd who helped serve popcorn to everyone. 


Nursery Penguins

Our Nursery class welcomed the Emergency Services to school as they learnt about people who help us.  The morning was a huge success as children learnt about the Police, Ambulance and Fire Services. They had the opportunity to try on helmets, ring bells and even learnt to use a fire hose.  What a wonderful learning experience for our youngest learners.  See some pics below
