Summer 2021

In summer 2021, we had to rethink how we could celebrate a difficult year, so the foundation phase  held a teddy bears picnic, which was amazing. We made cakes, bunting and sandwiches. We played games and had a competition to see who made the best cake. It was the best way to celebrate even in times where we were restricted, we pulled together as a team and community and held a wonderful event for the children, that we hope they will remember fondly for years to come.

Also in summer 2021, we were able to hold our annual school sports day, unfortunately we could not have parents watching due to covid-19 restrictions, however we did record the events and shared them with parents.

Year 3/4 Sports Day 2021 





In July 2021, one of our year 6 pupils decided he wanted to plant the acorn tree  he had planted 7 years ago at home in the school grounds, as it was his last week in Penygloddfa before leaving for high school. What a lovely gesture!

February & March 2020

February and March 2020 were very sporty months in Year 5 and 6. We won the local hockey tournament, danced in the Urdd eisteddfod, celebrated Sports Relief by having a running competition and we went to watch the Wales women play against Estonia. There was also time for a science investigation and we had the school eisteddfod too.
