Newtown Cross Country Competition

This afternoon, 60 of our children took part in the Newtown area cross country competition alongside children from all of the other Newtown primary schools. Even though it did not rain, the course was very mucky and slippy in places! Everybody ran really well, especially the Year 1 and 2 children who ran in the competition for the very first time. We had some excellent results, including 1st in the Year 1 boys for Matthew, 1st in Year 1 girls for Darcey, 1st in Year 2 girls for Ava, 1st in Year 5 girls for Hannah and 1st in Year 6 boys for Dylan. There were also some very good finishes from the other children. Llongyfarchiadau pawb a pob lwc to those who will be competing in the next round!


Year 5 and 6 have recently been on their residential trip to Broneirion. During the trip they took part in lots of amazing activities. Cawson ni amser bendigedig!! This video that the children made shows you some of the things that they got up to. Keep checking this page as some of their writing will feature on here very soon!

Urdd Football

Three boys teams and three girls teams from Ysgol Penygloddfa took part in the Urdd football Maldwyn round at Latham Park today. Lots of teams from the local area were there competing.

The Penygloddfa Election

On Thursday 8th June a massive event is taking place in Penygloddfa School… the school election!!

All the children of our school will head to the polling booth and place their cross next to the party that they trust to spend the budget of £250.

Different ‘parties’ from the school such as Papur Newydd Penygloddfa, The School Council and The Eco Council have been busy preparing manifestos, speeches and posters in readiness for the next few weeks where they will all be fighting for votes.

There will be a special assembly taking place where a spokesperson for each group can try their best to sway the voters.

Who will win? Early opinion polls suggest it will be close!!
