In y6 it has been very exciting for pupils knowing that next Monday and Tuesday. Children have been told to meet up with friends so they aren't alone. They will meet their form teacher, pastrol support officer and head of year. What children seem to be most excited about is to find out their FORMS which they will be left in for the duration of comprehensive school. Just to corm firm school begins at 8:40am and finishes at 3:00pm. It will be quite an experience for the y6 pupils!! They will only need to wear the regular uniform which they should be wearing to day to day school here in Penyrheol Primary School!
As you are probably aware, around now is a VERY sporty time of the year! Theres sports day, tournaments and lots more! On Tuesday the 20th of June sports day will be taking place in the morning (weather depending) It will have to take place in the morning to make sure nursery can take part. Y6 will be manning activities such as obstacle course, potato and spoon race, bouncy castle, tug of war and even football and rugby challenges. It will be better that it takes place in the morning as it won't be too warm then. Amazingly, there will even be RACES FOR THE PARENTS!!! Sausage and chips will be for sale, £2 for chips and an extra 50p for sausages! There will be a SWEET stall selling all kinds of confectionary to satisfy your sweet tooth. So thats to look forward too. Also Y6 took part Gregg Rees Shield tournament against 6 other local schools. Girls took part in netball and Boys divided themselves between football or rugby. Unfortunately, football lost all of their match but one. However, on the bright side netball won 1 and rugby won ALL of their matches besides one.
This week, y5 and y6 were invited to The Grand Theatre in Swansea to perform in Primary partners where our School of Rock! Some of our y6 pupils and y5 pupils parents attended the performance. Supricingly, our school was the ONLY school to play our own instruments and include a dance. The other schools included Tre Uchaf, Penllegear and lots of other local schools.
