Ash Wednesday

Father Tim visited our school to conduct our Ash Wednesday service. Father Tim was kind enough, to burn the ashes for next year with us, so that we could see where the ashes come from and to help our understanding of what the day means.

Remember Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday on

Feb.18th and see you back at school on Monday 23rd Feb.big grin

Our whole school attendance figure for the last fortnight stands at 94%. This is below the Welsh Government target of 95% or above.

The class with the best attendance once again is... Dosbarth Seren with 97.5%, the only other classes that had an attendance over 95% were Dosbarth Afon with an attendance of 95.5% and Dosbarth Blodau with an attendance of 95.1%

Our Value for this month is Appreciation.

The children have attended an assembly that has introduced the value of Appreciation and a follow up lesson will happen in every class. At home, please support us by thinking about how we can thank people and not taking others for granted. Think about the world we live in, for example: the trees and animals. Finally how can we show our appreciation?

We would love to hear any stories of children demonstrating this value. Please send a note into class so that we can add your child's name to our Appreciation display.

Thank you.

Love Reading Day / Dydd Dwlu Darllen

Today was our Love Reading Day! We all dressed up as our favourite characters from our favourite books. Also we visited the book fair that was in the school to see what books were in there and if we were interested. We had great fun today and the costumes were superb!

*KEEP SAFE*

Keep Safe

Although tonight is about the loud bangs and the pretty fireworks, it is also important that the message is remembered, that fireworks can be dangerous and for everyone to keep safe!

Compassion

&

Written In Kings

Today, in worship, we were challenged with four questions:

  1. Have you eaten today?
  2. Do you have somewhere to sleep tonight?
  3. Are you able to afford a chocolate bar or coffee?
  4. Do you have clothes on your back?

Being able to answer "yes" to all four of these questions puts us in the top 10% of the wealthiest people in the world. Here at St Roberts we believe that, as privileged people, it is our responsibility to help the less fortunate around the world.

'Compassion' is an international organisation that seeks to release children from poverty in Jesus' name. Poverty tells a child that they have no hope for the future but we can give these children a healthy future through child sponsorships with Compassion. As a school, we have decided to sponsor and support Stephanie, a little girl from Ecuador. In order to raise money for Stephanie we will be holding a "no uniform" day on Friday 13th December.

Below are some pictures from the Compassion event today, with their ambassadors, Written In Kings.


Children In Need

Children In Need

On Friday the school supported Children In Need. Pupils could weare home clothes and bring a teddy in to school. We even had a surprised visit from Pudsey bear. We raised a fantastic £220! Well done to Charlotte, Lily and Jack (Yr 6) who raised £10 for their sponsored silence.

Thank you for supporting Children In Need.

Yours sincerely

The members of St Robert's School council.


Remembrance Service

On Friday, Dosbarth Mynydd led our Remembrance Service. It was very thought provoking. Thank you to Mrs Murphy and her class.

On Monday 11th, at 11 o'clock, he held a minute silence remembering the sacrifice that service men and women have made for peace and freedom. We finished the silence by saying an eternal rest.

During the past week we have been selling poppies. Thank you for all those who bought poppies. We will let you know how much the school has raised for the British Legion.


Last Friday we celebrated our Harvest. Dosbarth Blodau and members of the Worship Group helped us to celebrate it beautifully by leading us in our worship.A big thankyou to everyone for helping to provide Harvest Gifts for Parishoners of St. Robert's Church and our local School Community, items for our local Foodstore food bank and the £148 raised in donations for our charity CAFOD!

Teacher Pupil Netball Match

On the last day of term we held a teacher/pupil netball match. We have some great netball players in the school, both young and not quite as young. Checkout the photos below to see a post match analysis of the game.

Our May Altar

The end of May saw Dosbarth Afon leading our Crowning of the May Queen Worship. We would like to thank everyone who kindly sent in flowers during the month of May to help make our Our Lady's May Altar as colourful and as fragrant as it could be!


Easter Bonnet Parade

There were some beautiful bonnets on display this Easter. The winners in the infants were Dylan Cooke, Elsee Simpson, Aleks Szewczyk and Tilly Evans. The two winners in the Juniors were Joshua Pickett and Izibella Strong.


Sport Relief

On Friday 21st March we all took part in running and walking a mile for sport Relief. Everyone had a great time and put 100% effort into it.We had a lot of fun raising money and as a school we managed to raise an incredible £1,154.70. A team of teachers from Bridgend cycled around all of the schools who took part on Friday 21st March, to collect all of the donations raised by each school.


Dear Parents,

The meeting regarding the PTA took place on 19th March and 'Friends of St Roberts' was formed. All roles within this have now been allocated but we are looking for any new members/volunteers to help with future events.We are currently concentrating on organising a summer fete so watch this space!

Any ideas or resources would be welcome.


Eisteddfod

On Friday March 7th we celebrated our Eisteddfod at school. It was a day filled with music, poetry and dance.

Each class recited a poem and some sang songs too.

It was lovely to share in the talents of some budding musicians playing brass, woodwind and strings and as usual, the Welsh dancing was a highlight – we all felt very proud to be Welsh!

Competitions included art, handwriting, creative writing and the Year 6 cookery competition, the standard of which gets higher (and tastier) every year!

Congratulations to all certificate winners and a special congratulation to Samuel Finch who was crowned the Bard this year.

The house choirs sang the song ‘DewiSant’ – there was certainly some tough competition but our judge Mr Hopkins, member of a male voice choir himself, felt the tuneful voices and super presentation of the song by St. Patrick’s house deserved the trophy – Da iawn to all!

St Patrick’s house were certainly on a winning streak that day, as they also won the overall Eisteddfod Shield and proud house captains Lily Harris and Joshua Tolhurst received the trophy to rapturous cheers!

Parents were invited to watch some of our performances the following Monday, March 10th and by the responses we received, everyone was very proud of our children and their wonderful welsh talents!

PTA Meeting

Dear Parents/Carers,

I can confirm that the PTA Meeting is taking place on Wednesday 19th March, 6:00pm at the school. We apologise for any confusion over the multiple choice of dates!

Regards,

C. Beveridge


Easter Bonnet Date!

The Mabinogion

Storytelling Workshops

A storyteller from the 11th Century arrived at our school to bring to life one of two tales from the Mabinogion. The storyteller used props, costume and pupils to bring to life the Cullwch and Olwen love story and explore the themes, story structure, characters and fantastical creatures. The workshops developed pupil's storytelling skills and instilled a passion for reading and storytelling. They also gave an imaginative insight into the history of Wales with the stories taking the pupils on a journey from the pre dawn of history, through the dark ages, and into the 1100's when the stories were passed from court to court.

We are the first School in Wales to have achieved the P4C (Philosophy 4 children) Bronze Award!

Compassion

Here at St Roberts we believe in children's rights. For this reason, we have decided to sponsor a child through Compassion. Compassion are an International organisation who seek to "release children from poverty in Jesus' name." They understand that poverty tells a child that they are worthless but through child sponsorships we can give these children hope.

We decided to sponsor Stephanie from Ecuador. Stephanie is 4 years old and enjoys running, playing skipping and listening to music. She attends Sunday school and church regularly and her performance is above average in school. In Stephanie's town most adults earn the equivelant of £120 a month which is just £30 a week!

Here's a picture of Stephanie in her hometown Guasmo Sur...
