Children in Need- Sponsored Run

On Friday 15th November, the whole school took part in a sponsored run all in the name of raising money for Children in Need and Healthy Schools. The Sports Ambassadors set the school the task of running a combined 1000km. After a long morning’s running from Years 3 and 4 in school and an hour’s running around the running track in Maldwyn Sports centre for the Year 5s and 6s, it was left to the Foundation Phase to spend the afternoon running around the Top Playground.

The great news is that when we added all of our distances together we ran a combined 1028km!! The even better news was that we had a cake stall in school to raise some extra cash for charity and also to reward all of our hard work.

The EVEN better news is that we have so far raised lots of money for Children in Need. The overall total keeps rising as sponsorship money comes in to school. We will let you know an overall total when we get it. Thanks to all of the people who sponsored us and a massive thanks to Freedom Leisure for supporting us in this run. Diolch yn fawr pawb!

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!
