Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 15th December

Friday 15th December is Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day. We would like pupils and staff in Rhydri Primary School to join in with thousands of people from all over the country for this great event and wear their wonderful woollies to school!

All donations will be given to Save the Children. If you do not wish to donate, we would still love to see all children in their festive jumpers.

Foundation Phase Christmas Concert


Well done to the children who performed in the Foundation Phase Christmas Concert on Friday, you were all wonderful! We were very grateful to be able to use the lovely Parish Hall and the Friends provided impressive home made food. Thank you again for the way in which you supported the children and an extra big ‘thank you’ to all the staff, especially Mrs Hayhoe and Mrs Gettings, for working so hard with the children.

Christmas Theatre Visit

Thank you to all parents/carers for your support with the children’s visit to the performance of ‘The Borrowers’ at the Sherman Theatre last week. The children had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed watching a live performance. Thank you to Mrs Luff in the school office for organising the event.
