Its the last week before half term already!  Although its a short term, we are cramming a lot in, especially when we return after the break. Please note the "dates at a glance" at the bottom of this blog to help you plan. 



St David's Day is just around the corner and this year it is going to be even better!  The children will be participating in our annual Llanrhidian Eisteddfod which is always such a fun event.  Please see below for the fun competitions the pupils can take part in.  All entries will need to arrive on or before March 1st ready for our special morning. 


Here are the headlines this term.


Parent Evening  26th and 27th February - You should have received a link to book your time slot.  This will be an opportunity for you to speak to a member of the pod staff about your child's progress.  Please can we ask that you stick to the allocated time so other parents are not kept waiting.   Any issues with booking, please email the office. 


St David's Eisteddfod &  Marchnad Dydd Gwyl Dewi March 1st.  We will be holding our traditional "fun" Eisteddfod with all the pupils in the morning.  Here are the competitions they can enter from home.  

Leek Olympics - This year we are going all out and hosting the 'Leek Olympics'. We know how much you all love our Heaviest Leek competition, but why limit the fun to just one category? 

There are 4 categories you can enter in: 

  • Heaviest Leek

  • Longest Leek

  • Smallest Leek

  • Best Dressed Leek

One leek can only enter one category, however, you may enter each category with a different leek. Please clearly label your leeks with your child's name and category.


Design a Welsh Sports Kit - We are starting a new competition this year and would love for your children to get involved. We want to encourage our pupils to design a sports kit for their favourite sport. Sewing, sketching, painting, natural resources... the creative world is your oyster!


All entries need to be in by the morning of Friday March 1st 2024.


Please can pupils arrive in school dressed in Welsh costumes or red tops ready for our celebration morning assembly. 


In the afternoon, from 1.30pm, we will hold a marchnad in the marquee and a special Caffi Cynefin will be open.  If you are able to attend, you are welcome to collect your child to visit the stalls.  If not you can send your child in with up to £2 to spend.  Each pod will be having their own stall and each pod will be letting you know how you can help.   We will update you with more information nearer the time.  


Easter Eggstravaganza Event - We are very excited to be holding our  Easter Eggtravaganza  on Thursday 21st March and  are  praying for a dry day.  If you are able to help out with any Easter cakes, cookies, soft drinks etc, please send them in. 

Here are the details:-

  • 1.30pm gates and Caffi Cynefin will open. There will also be take out drinks  sold from Siop Cierios.  (Please note only the front gate by bus bay will be opened for safeguarding reasons)
  • 2.00 - Easter Bonnet Parade begins  - The route for this will be dependent on the weather, but don't worry you will  all get to see your child parade in their lovey bonnet. 

After the parade the pupils will return to their pods.  If you would like to collect them at this point just stand in the usual pick up place and the teachers will see you.   This is an opportunity for parents and community to come together for a chat and a catch up, so please feel free to use our outside benches and enjoy the occasion.    


Mr G's Internet Safety Tip of the Week: In-App purchases - It's not always easy to spot in-app purchases. You might download a free game app but then find out that you need to make an "in-app purchase" to unlock the next level. If you choose to make the purchase, you'll be charged an additional amount, which will be deducted from the credit card or payment method linked to your device.
