Film Club

This term, film club will be run as a study of the media of film. Children will carry out activities which will help them understand how films are made, how music is used in film, how characters are created and developed and so forth. Children will not just sit with popcorn and watch films in this club this term.



ICT Club

ICT club will be used to further develop the skills and interests of pupils in coding and programming.




There will be a small charge of £1 per session for gardening club to cover the cost of resources. Children can pay by giving money to the teachers on the morning of the clubs – or pay a half-term in advance (£7 for this half-term).




A visiting Welsh teacher from Menter Cwm Gwendraeth will be leading Sports Club this term, teaching the children different sporting skills while developing their Welsh language skills.

Dear Parents/Carer,

Arriving at and Leaving school



I am fully aware that older children in the school like to walk home unaccompanied at the end of the school day or at the end of an after school club. While we as a school promote independence in our children, we are always mindful that safety and security should come first, particularly as the evenings start to get darker.


We would only recommend that pupils in year 5 and 6 walk home on their own provided that the family have no concerns about the child’s ability to keep themselves safe and that the school receives permission in writing from the parent/carer. It is also our view that primary age pupils walking home on their own cannot be responsible for walking home a younger sibling.


Parents should ensure that their child understands the Green Cross Code/Road Safety, is aware of stranger danger and clearly understands what action to take in case of an emergency. It is advised that children of primary age walking home alone go straight to an agreed residence and do not go home to an unsupervised dwelling.


If you feel that your child meets the above criteria, and you would like your child to walk home independently, please complete the attached consent form.


Please note that breakfast club runs from 8.15 – 8.45. Pupils attending breakfast club will be supervised until they move into classes at the start of the school day. Children arriving before 8.45am who do not attend breakfast club, will not be supervised, therefore the responsibility for their safety will still lie with yourselves as parents and carers.


Many thanks for your co-operation.



Mr P Trotman
