Rhydri Art Day Showcase: Friday 13th July (Rainbow & Bronze) and Monday 16th July (Silver & Gold)

Our Art Day was a huge success and parents/carers of children in the Foundation Phase will be invited into school on Friday 13th July at 9:15am to view and purchase their children’s artwork and the artwork for children in Gold and Silver class will be showcased on Monday 16th July straight after school.  The funds raised will be used to replenish art resources across the school.

Foundation Phase Open Morning – Carnival of the Animals: Friday 13th July

Mrs Gettings and Mrs Hayhoe would like to invite the parents of both Rainbow and Bronze class to meet on the yard at 9:15 on Friday 13th July. The Foundation phase topic this term has been ‘Carnival of the Animals’ and the children would like to show you what they have been doing by performing to you and showcasing their work.

The children will be creating some savannah sunset paintings that will be framed for the parents to purchase if they wish. The cost of these will be £5, which covers the cost of the materials and frames and then any profits made will be spent on enhancing the outside areas.

We feel that this would be a lovely way to finish the year and the perfect opportunity for us all to get together.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Rhydri Book Day

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.

Foundation Phase Art Open-Morning – Thank you

Thank you to all the parents/carers who joined us for our Art open-morning last Friday. The morning was a huge success and it was a fantastic opportunity for us to share with you the wonderful work the children have been completing in class. As always, your support it greatly appreciated.

Thank you to Rachel MacManus for taking videos and photographs throughout the morning and creating the following films:

(The first film is longer and includes the talks given by Miss Bodenham and the teaching staff and the second film just has shots of the day and the song)



The Welsh and The Tehuelche Animation

Congratulations to the pupils of Gold Class who have created an animation about the Welsh settlers first meeting with the Tehuelche people of Patagonia. The animation is available to view on the school website – http://www.rhydriprimary.com.  Please take the time to watch the video – it is a fantastic celebration of the children’s hard work.  We are also delighted with the news that the animation is soon to be shown at the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.
