Rhydri Primary School will be hosting a Silver Class Roman Day on Thursday 26th October, where pupils will experience life as a Roman. Throughout the day, pupils will take part in a range of different activities including:
- Roman games
- Roman mosaics
- Roman numerals
- Roman coins
For children to fully experience life as a Roman, all children and staff will be encouraged to come to school wearing a toga/Roman attire for the day. There are plenty of ideas for home-made costumes on the internet, but if you require any ideas, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
On Tuesday 21st November, the school will be celebrating Rhydri Book Day. This is always an extremely enjoyable event where the children are encouraged to share their love for reading and their passion for particular authors and books with others. Children are encouraged to dress as their favourite book character and, if possible, bring a copy of the book into school for the day.
To make this year’s book day even more special, we are very pleased to be welcoming the story teller, Daniel Morden, into school. Further details about his work can be found at http://www.gomer.co.uk/authors/danielmorden.html
To encourage the children to explore the works of Daniel Morden teachers will be sharing his books with classes during the week of Rhydri Book Day. Children will also be able to order copies of his works online if they wish by visiting the web link below: http://www.gomer.co.uk/index.php/catalogsearch/result/?q=daniel+morden
Thank you for all the contributions that were made to support our Harvest Festival. The children were brilliant and it was great to see both schools together sharing this event. All food donated will be distributed by the Bridging the Gap food bank.
This Friday, 13th October, will be the last day that we will accept the old £1.00 coins.
Rhydri Primary and Bedwas Juniors will be sharing their Harvest Festival together at Rhydri Village Hall with Pastor Edwards on Tuesday 10th October. If the children could bring in a small food donation on the day, we will pass this on to ‘Bridging the Gap’, a Caerphilly based food bank.
A reminder that the photographer will be in school in the morning on Wednesday October 11th.
A very big ‘thank you’ to Mrs Eveleigh, Mrs Arnold, Ross John, Carl Burton and Jamie Goddard for the hard work they put into the outside area of Rainbow Class last weekend. We all appreciate this and it has made such a positive difference to this busy part of our school!
