An exciting day ahead in school before the bank holiday weekend! Hopefully the sun will continue to shine for us. Our whole school topic of 'Green. Green Grass of Home' is now well underway and we hope you enjoyed reading about our exciting term term ahead in the Pod Planning Overviews which were sent out last week.
Here are the headlines this week:-
Caffi Cynefin needs your help! Every Thursday between 9am and 11:30am.
Caffi Cynefin needs your help to keep it running. This wonderful project gives pupils an opportunity in the real world of work, as well offering our community with a warm space to meet up. Our feedback has been amazing, but since opening our toddler group we are not seeing as many customers. How you can help?
- Please tell elderly or non-working members of your family about our Caffi
- Donate cakes, biscuits etc
- If you have a contact with any local care homes spread the word.
It really is a delight to be served by the pupils, but we will rely on donations to make it sustainable and viable. Pupils reflecting on this wonderful learning experience have commented on how much more confident they feel since working in the Caffi.
Y6 Parent Workshop - Transition; Wednesday May 17th 3:30pm in school.
This workshop will be run by Amy Glass, out "in reach" worker. The workshop will help support parents and pupils through the transition process to comprehensive school.

Gower Cycling Festival Sunday June 25th (morning) @School Field.
All welcome from 9.30 am. We have been asked to be a "pit stop" again for this traditional event. White Rock Events have already sponsored us a wonderful football kit and are also sourcing us some free portaloos for our sports day. We desperately need help to run a BBQ to sell bacon rolls to the riders. Please let us know if you can help. We are expecting 600 cyclist to ride past the school so come along to cheer them on! Hopefully lots will stop for breakfast. We expect the first of the cyclists to arrive around 9.45 am.

We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting our very own Read to Relax week this term. Throughout the week, all pupils will immerse themselves in a variety of activities linked to our love of reading and imagination. Staff and pupils will all share some of their favourite stories and become their own authors and write their own fairytales. On Wednesday 10th May 2023 we will have a Llanrhidian 2nd hand book sale to help raise much-needed funds for our school. We are now collecting any good quality children's storybooks for this sale, if you have any books that you would like to donate to our 2nd hand book sale then please send them to school with your child. Books will only be sold on 10th May and all books will be £1. Finally, on Friday 12th of May we will end our exciting week by having our very own Pyjamarama event. Pupils will be invited to come into school in their pyjamas where they will enjoy some exciting treats and activities.
