News: Friday Updates!

What a fantastic week of sports we’ve had and there’s more to come this afternoon, with our Year 5 & 6 teams competing for the prestigious Sports Day Cup!! Huge thanks to you all for supporting us through the week and a huge WELL DONE to all the children who’ve been simply wonderful, showing determination and excellent sportsmanship. 
THANKS and CONGRATULATIONS also must go to all of the adults who’ve taken part in our Parents Races – you are also all amazing (and you have a year to train for the next one!!!!!) 
Game 24

Children in Years 4,5 & 6 represented school this week in a Game 24 competition held at All Saints school in Gresford. The children did extremely well and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We didn’t manage to bring home any silverware on this occasion, however, children made us very proud. Many thanks to Ysgol Heulfan for letting us use their Minibus to transport the children and to Russ for driving. 
Darland Visit

Our Year 5 children visited Darland High School yesterday for a Taster Day and had a great time. Throughout the day they sampled lessons including PE and Maths and got a real feel of how a secondary school operates. Many thanks to staff at Darland for arranging the day and to our staff for supporting the children during the visit.  
ALDI Visit
Years 1 to 4 had a special treat yesterday when Olympian Laura Deas visited school to talk about her experiences and to show the children the Bronze medal she won at the Winter Olympics. The visit was arranged by the new ALDI store which has opened in the village.
