FOR OUR YOUNGER PLAYERS FROM YEAR 4 TO YEAR 7

Introducing them to new skills in hockey, team work and to have fun meeting new friends.

Documents and Specifications relating to the post can be found below.
The Year 5 and 6 pupils from the primary clusters took part in a critical thinking workshop with Noemi from Aberystwyth University.
The pupils worked fantastically well and it was a great start to their transition week.
Mrs Williams, (Adran Cymraeg) organised a residential visit to the Urdd camp in Glanllyn, North Wales from June 8 - 10.
Twenty five pupils from Years 7 and 8 attended with two A Level students who came as “Swogs”.
The pupils were a credit to the school and made a determined effort to speak Welsh to each other and the Glanllyn staff. It was a great opportunity for them to develop their Welsh skills outside the classroom in a completely Welsh environment.
The weather was kind to us and the staff at Glanllyn praised our pupils for their excellent behaviour and courtesy.
We also visited the home of the poet Hedd Wyn where we met the poet’s nephew and had an interesting talk about his life by a local historian.
Thanks to Mr Lewis, Mr Delaney and Mrs Nicky Price for accompanying us and for all their help and support.
From Tuesday 23rd June, the Lunchtime Homework Club will be starting in Mr Wolfe's room.
This will be an opportunity for pupils to gain help with their homework from other pupils in the school.
The club will be led by the 6th form and KS4 pupils. Pupils will have access to the computers and any other equipment they need to ensure they stay on top of their homework.
All Year 9 D&T Food students have been given the recipe lists up until the end this school year.
Students have been told their groups and made aware of the date differences.
Fifteen of Year eight pupils have recently taken part in the ASSIST programme developed by Cardiff and Bristol University to combat smoking in that age group. It is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government.
The pupils were chosen by their peers through answering a questionnaire aimed at finding those with influence and a good social network.
The scheme started with two days of training at Manor Park where pupils learned the reasons why it is important not to become a smoker. They learned a multitude of facts which were often presented in a fun way. Pupils received this training in a very positive way and gained confidence from it.
On returning to school they became peer mentors and were expected to have “conversations” with pupils in school to actively discourage smoking and educate others as to the reasons why smoking is bad for health. These “conversations” were recorded in diaries which are used to help evaluate the overall success of the project.
