March 7th / Mawrth 7fed
Dear Parents / Carers,
What a busy first week back! With Pancake Day, World Book Day, Family Service, St. David's Day celebrations and preparations for the Eisteddfod, it's been a week full of activities and endeavour! Good luck to our competitors in Brynhyfryd tomorrow. It's been a mad rush over the last couple of days, but I'm sure they will all do us proud.
Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,
Am wythnos cyntaf prysur yn ôl! Gyda Dydd Crempog, Diwrnod y Llyfr, Gwasanaeth Teuluol, dathliadau Dydd Gwyl Dewi a pharatoadau ar gyfer yr Eisteddfod, mae wedi bod yn wythnos llawn gweithgareddau ac ymdrech! Pob lwc i'n cystadleuwyr ym Mrynhyfryd yfory. Mae wedi bod yn rhuthr gwyllt dros y dyddiau diwethaf, ond rwy'n siŵr y byddem yn falch o bawb.
Class 4 Family Service - Class 4 gave us a wonderful Family Service today, along the theme of St. David's Day and the symbols, customs and icons of Wales. They even gave us a mini Eisteddfod. Thanks to Mrs Baker, Lynn and Julie for their work with the children and thanks to the pupils for their efforts.
World Book Day - We were delighted to recognise World Book Day this week and did so in costume, by sharing our favourite books and by taking part in a book swap. Thanks to the School Council for their efforts, particularly Joey and Catherine.
Achievers - Today's long list of achievers included Oscar, Christian, Harsha, Ariadna, Tom, all of Year 4, Oliver, Joey, Catherine and Hannah as Students of the Week. Ruby and Grace received Gymnastics medals, Emma a swimming certificate and Manga High certificates went to Faye, Harri, Tom, Auben, Megan and Sally. Well done to them all.
Pancakes in Year 1 - Year 1 have been learning about positioning. The children took part in a pancake race to see who came first, second, third and fourth. The children tried their best to flip the pancakes. We had lots of giggles.
St David's Day - The hall was awash with red in service this morning and there were some lovely costumes as we celebrated St. David's Day, albeit belatedly. Could any outstanding contributions of £1 to raise funds for the local Urdd branch be sent on Monday please. Thank you.
Urdd Eisteddfod - Please refer to the letter sent earlier this week. The following events require a preliminary to decide who will go forward to compete in the afternoon.
08.30am Year 5&6 Recitation - 'Yr Hen Dy Gwag' Room - C2
09.30am Infants' Recitation - 'Awyr' Room - C2
11.00am Year 3&4 Recitation - 'Cysgod' Room - C2
For the above competitions, three competitors are selected to go through to compete on the stage in the afternoon.
Any successful qualifiers and also competitors for the dialogue and group recitation, will take part in the afternoon in the John Ambrose Theatre at Ysgol Brynhyfryd. For any pupils who have not competed during the morning, I propose that children in the dialogue arrive at 1pm and the group recitation at 1.30pm. The whole event will be predominantly held through the medium of Welsh. Adults are required to pay a £3 entrance fee for the afternoon Eisteddfod. Clothing - Best uniform is required for all competitors on Saturday, including black shoes. Children in the dialogue are expected to bring their costumes with them.
March 4th / Mawrth 4ydd
Dear Parents / Carers,
I hope you had an enjoyable half term. We are busy from the off, so I thought I’d inform you of a couple of activities taking place later this week.
World Book Day – This takes place on Thursday and as is now traditional, the children can come to school dressed as their favourite literary character. We are also asking the children to bring in their favourite book to show off. Additionally, we will be holding a book swap for all the classes. The children are invited to bring in a book and swap it for another of their choice. Please make sure the children know they are not to swap the favourite book they have brought in, or there may be tears!
Family Service – Year 4 will deliver their Family Service on Friday. Parents and relatives are warmly invited to join with us from 9am.
St. David’s Day – Unfortunately, we were not in school to celebrate our patron saint on March 1st. As Year 4 will share a St. David’s Day message in their Family Service on Friday, we thought it would be appropriate for everyone to dress up in St. David’s Day costume on that day. Annually we raise funds for the local Urdd branch, so we kindly ask for a £1 donation per child for coming in Welsh costume.
Urdd Eisteddfod – I will provide all competitors with a letter tomorrow which will give full details on the running order for Saturday.
Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher
