Dear Parents / Carers,
The Summer Term begins a little cooler than expected, but everybody seems to have had a lovely break and we look forward to an industrious period between now and the end of the academic year. See below for some provisional dates of upcoming activities.
Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,
Mae Tymor yr Haf yn cychwyn ychydig yn oerach na'r disgwyl ond mae pawb wedi mwynhau'r gwyliau. Edrychwn ymlaen at gyfnod prysur ac mae dyddiadau o weithgareddau ar y gweill isod.
Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,
Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher, Pennaeth
Urdd Art and Craft - Congratulations to Stefi and Illy for their success in the Urdd County Art and Craft. They both got 1st prize for their puppets and also 3rd place for printing on fabric. Stefi also won the knitting competition. All 1st placed work now goes on to be judged nationally in Bridgend. Good luck to them both in the next round!
Maths Challenge – Best wishes to our Mathematicians in Year 5 as they take part in Ruthin School's annual Maths Challenge. I hope they don't get too wet!
PTA Quiz – Please see the attached poster for this event next Friday.
Ruthin Junior Cricket Club – Also see attached details of local cricket activities which could be of interest.
Bank Holiday – Monday is May Day Bank Holiday, so we'll see you Tuesday!
National Tests – The National Tests will take place next week on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and the following Monday.
Play in a Day – Year 5 will take part in their annual Play in a Day activity next Wednesday, where they will learn, rehearse and perform a play in a single day.
Achievers - Our first set of Students of the Week this term are Fletcher, James, Morgan, Thomas, Molly and Lucas. Josh won the Welsh award. Ella-May received a gym certificate and Raif a medal for rugby. Congratulations to them all.
Attendance – We have been pleased to see attendance improve after the winter bugs. Mrs Liddy's Class had 100% attending the last week before half term – well done! Could I also please appeal to all parents to ensure their child is in school in good time to line up on the yard when the bell goes at 9am. Lateness is disruptive not only to the child in question but also to the class in which they are taught. Many thanks.
Art Club – Art club is on Tuesday this half term. If you still want to join up – there are still spaces.
Tempest Photography – Could all orders be received by Tuesday please.

Urdd Eisteddfod - We had a successful day at the Urdd Eisteddfod. We had four items winning through to the national event in Bridgend over Whit week. Congratulations to all the Rhos Street pupils who competed – they brought us a great amount of pride and all performed to a very high standard. Thanks also to the supportive parents for their enthusiasm and their patience on what was once again, a very long day indeed!
Our dialogue group, which involved performing a short sketch were placed first. Three instrumentalists were also victorious, Jemima won the woodwind solo, with Emma 2nd. James took 1st prize in the string solo, while brother Xander won the brass competition. Finally our group recitation were staged for the afternoon, performed fantastically and were placed 3rd. Next stop – Bridgend, for our winners!
Class 2 Family Service - Thank you to the Year 1 and 2 pupils of Class 2, who made Mrs Liddy and her team very proud with their Family Service this morning. Food and Fitness was the topic and they shared a lot of important information to a packed hall. Thanks also to Mrs Liddy and her team for their hard work.
Achievers - Students of the Week were Emi-Lee, Alana, Casey, Ella, Edan and Faye. Connie and Emilie had gymnastics certificates and Tyler and Jenson ones for swimming. Alex received a red karate belt.
Tempest Photography – Your payments for the photos taken this week can be received after the Easter break, so for once, there's no rush!
PTA Disco - A big thank you to everyone who supported the Easter Disco. Over £600 profit was made which is a great return. Thank you to Jayne and her team and also anybody who helped on the night, donated cakes or supported in any way.
PTA Target – We are relying on the money raised by the PTA to purchase IT equipment for the school. We are very grateful to have recently been able to order 6 laptops for various classes and are now targeting the purchase of Chromebooks to be used by the pupils. This will be a two phase project requiring a total of £10,000. It's a big amount but the pupils will benefit greatly, bearing in mind the increased focus on IT in schools. Thank you for your support!
PTA Quiz – Please see the attached poster, regarding the forthcoming PTA Quiz on May 5th..
Back to School – Monday 24th is allocated for staff training, so the pupils return on Tuesday 25th April.
