Super Ambassadors survey from The Children's Commissioner for Wales.









People who can make a difference to your life want to hear from you about how life has been over the last few weeks. Sally Holland, the Children's Commissioner, is one of those people. 
She wants to know about any worries you have, how you've been spending your time, and also about the things that have made you happy. 
Sally has been working with the Welsh Government, to make sure that they hear and listen to what you have to say. Sally wants to make sure they are doing their best for all children and young people in Wales. It will also help them to make sure that they are giving you the information and support you need to feel as happy as possible during this time and afterwards. 
The survey should take you around 15 minutes.

                        Rights of the Month Challenge

July 2020


The Right of the month for July is Article 6, The Right to life and be Healthy. I have found a lovely website that has some ideas that tells you about food facts, gives you recipes to make healthy meals and activities to keep you fit. ( 

The recipes include ideas for healthier lunchboxes that you might like to try while you are at home and then use them in  September! ( 

Click on the activities link and it gives you ideas on how to keep fit while you are at home and tells you why keeping fit helps us(

 Hope you enjoy the activities and let me know how you get on with the recipes and the activities. 

Mrs Morgan


                     Rights of the Month Challenge

       June 2020

The Right of the Month for June is Article 31, The Right to Relax and Play.

Since we have been at home it has been very strange that we have been  unable to see some of our family, to play with our friends and other activities we normally do. It is still important to find the time to relax and play while we are at home. How have you done this? It would be lovely if you could show us, video, drawing, photographs or any way that you would like to! Send in via email or twitter?


Below are some pictures of how I have made sure I have relaxed. 

I have enjoyed baking and have done lots of cooking. I have had a few bike rides and found lots of new running routes. I have found sewing very relaxing and have made a quilt. I have even taken up a new hobby, knitting! 




                 Rights of the Month Challenge

To a good standard of Living (Article 27)

I have looked at my standard of living and decided what I am thankful for and what I enjoy doing.

I have used my name to create an Acrostic poem, where the first letter forms a word.

I have illustrated it with pictures and photos but you can decorate it how you would like. You can write a few sentences to explain your poem.

The School Council looked again at the Children's Commissioner for Wales website and looked at the special mission. They decided that as a school they did not want to form a new group, as they felt that Pupil Voice is very strong in school. They looked at  their local community and how they could help  certain groups with in the community.They  decided that they would like to organize  an afternoon tea party where they can play games and talk to the the older generation.
