Dear Parents / Carers,

Lots of lovely activities have been taking place which included Sports Day, a Family Service and transition activities.  We also had a Governors meeting this week, which began with Chair Brian Hubble, recognising the feat of our ex-pupil Neil Taylor, who scored in Wales' Euro 2016 game v. Russia this week.  Let's hope tomorrow sees the Wales squad continue their fine success.

​Ruthin Town Football Tournament - The three teams representing Rhos Street School all gave fantastic accounts of themselves showing great sportsmanship, teamwork and skill.  The Year 6 team were pipped 1-0 in the final and could consider themselves very unlucky.  Big thanks to all the pupils who represented the school so well in a lovely community event.

​Year 3 and 4 Bodelwyddan Trip - The weather was kind as Years 3 and 4 visited Bodelwyddan Castle.  Their behaviour was praised on many occasions during the day and they had a great time taking part in a mini beast workshop, visiting the maze, castle and adventure playground.

Class Arrangements for 2016-17

Nursery – Mrs. Eleri Morris

Reception & Year 1 – Mrs. Louise Bourne

Year 1 & 2 – Mrs. Geraldine Liddy

Year 3 – Miss. Charlotte Davies

Year 4 – Mrs. Denise Baker
