Thank you for your support over the past half-term in school. It has been a very busy, but also very productive half-term. The children will break up from school on Friday 16th February and will return on Monday 26th February. We hope you have a restful and safe week off school.


This year, Bedwas and Rhydri pupils will be celebrating St. David’s Day together in Rudry Village Hall during the morning of Thursday 1st March. All children are requested to wear Welsh themed or red clothing to school on this day.

Throughout the morning of celebrations, children will be reciting Welsh poems, singing Welsh songs and performing with their musical instruments. Each class will be performing their poems on the stage in front of the rest of the pupils.

Eisteddfod half-term Homework

As part of the Eisteddfod celebrations, we ask that all children design and make a Welsh themed mask to wear during our morning of celebrations. Children can incorporate as many aspects of Wales into the mask designs as they wish, e.g. sheep, castle, daffodil, dragon, rugby etc.

We ask that all masks are returned to school on Monday 26th February. The winners of the competition will be announced during the joint Eisteddfod.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.

PC Madeley

Thank you to PC Madeley who came in to school last week to present the ‘It’s Your Choice’ drugs talk to Year 6. PC Madeley will be working with different classes during the next two terms on a variety of topics.
