Weekly Updates


Weekly update Friday 3rd March 2023

Dear All,

A great week celebrating our Welsh heritage and culture. 

Congratulations to all of our children for participating so willingly in our Eisteddfod and particularly the amazing singing! It was a pleasure to see so many happy, smiley faces. Congratulations to our Bard!

It was also lovely to see some familiar and new faces at our Super Citizen Cafe today. Thank you to Kinde for allowing us to join them and to our fabulous children for organising the event and helping to make sure it ran smoothly.

Thank you to all of the children in KS2 who were so keen to try out for the cross-country event today. Unfortunately we cannot take all of the children, so we have decided to run our own cross-country event in school next Friday (weather permitting). KS2 children will need to wear PE kit on Friday, as well as Tuesday as usual.

Forthcoming events

We have a lot of exciting events planned for the next few weeks.

Friday March 17th is Red Nose Day. The children have asked if they can wear pyjamas and there will be a range of fun activities in school during the day.  School Council have suggested that a donation of £2 each would ensure that Llangattock School can make a really good contribution to this amazing charity.

We will also be holding a Grounds day to help tidy up before Spring. Further details to follow.

As we were not able to celebrate World Book Day this week, we have arranged our own day to celebrate and enjoy books, Friday March 24th . Children can dress up as their favourite character, or just bring in one small prop from a story. They can also bring in their favourite book to read to/with a friend.

Tuesday 28th March is our Easter Service at St Catwg’s and our Easter Hat parade. The children can make a hat. We have hats available as a base for their own creations at a cost of £1 per hat. These will be for sale after school next week. All money will go towards Easter eggs for our Easter Egg Hunt in the last week of term. If you prefer to make your own hat from scratch, that is fine too.

Thursday 30th March is our Bouncy Fun Day! We will be having a fun day with bouncy castles, a whole school picnic and lots of fun and games.

Weekly update Friday 3rd February 2023

Dear All,

A very busy week for everyone! 

Y3-6 have been so adaptable this week, working with different teachers, as the Governors completed interviews for the new headteacher.  

On behalf of the Governors, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Katherine Durbin, as headteacher. Ms Durbin will be taking up the post after the Easter holidays.  I am sure she will be a huge asset to Llangattock School and wish her very well in her new post.

KS2 have also worked with iTeach for 2 days working on Google classroom and spreadsheets, learning lots of new skills.

Foundation Phase have been busy drawing story maps, measuring, learning about Chinese New Year and having great fun!

Please see the attached information regarding our ‘Welsh Question of the Week’. 

‘Ble rwyt ti’n byw?’   ‘Where do you live?’

The children will be practising using this around the school next week and may like to practise at home too! 

Apologies for the lack of photographs on Twitter recently, we have been having trouble sending Tweets. Hopefully the issues have been resolved now and lots of new Tweets should be available very soon!

A few notices regarding forthcoming events:

  • Parent Consultation Meetings wk bg Monday 13th Feb – letters will be sent out on Monday. Please return the slip as soon as possible so we can organise appointments.
  • March 1st is Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant. Children can come to school dressed in traditional Welsh costume, anything red, or Welsh rugby/football shirts. We will be sharing some Welsh singing, dancing and poetry with you. We hope you will be able to join us at 2:30pm for some highlights. Details to follow later.
  • Our Super Citizens have organised a Community Cafe on Friday 3rd March. They will be serving tea, coffee and refreshments in the Community Hall between 9:30 and 11:00am. There will also be a Kinde session. Please do come along and join us. All profits will go towards the children’s chosen charity.

Next week:


We are having some work done on the large oak tree in the Foundation Phase playground. The tree will need to be cordoned off, so there will not be any access to school via the top gate. We hope this work will be completed quickly, but apologise for any inconvenience.

Weekly update 20th January 2023

Dear All,

It has been another busy week but everyone is really looking forward to the disco tonight! Please look out for photos on Twitter. Thank you to everyone who attended and the PTA for organising and running this lovely event.

This week Y3 have started their PBuzz lessons. It was great fun. Hopefully they will be able to share what they have learnt at the end of the term. Thank you to their Pbuzz teacher Andy, we’re looking forward to next week’s session! Y5/6 had a visit from one of our school governors, Val Jones, who is going to come and listen to readers and help out in school each week. Thank you, Val! 

A polite reminder about appropriate clothing. I understand that some children like to wear shorts to school, but the weather has been particularly cold and some of those children are not wanting to go outside to play at break and lunchtimes, because they are so cold. Please send children to school in warm, appropriate clothes.

Once again this term we are looking at attendance , following a monitoring visit and we will be starting our attendance rewards again. I know that there have been a lot of bugs, illness and unavoidable absence, and would not expect anyone to be in school if they are unwell, but a polite reminder that holidays and occasional day trips cannot be authorised and will be recorded as unauthorised. Thank you for your support .

We still have several places in Reception for September 2023. If you know of anyone who is still looking for a school place for that year, please do pass on our details.

Next week:

We have Mix Up sessions! Each afternoon the children will be working in cross age groups (YR-6) with a focus on Expressive Arts. We will be working on drama, music, dance and art activities, whilst learning about St Dwynwen! We will share our work on short videos later in the term

Dear All,

A great first week back. It is great to see everyone happy and healthy at the start of this term!

This week we welcomed Dmytro into Y3/4, and although he was only with us for a short period of time, we enjoyed getting to know him. We also welcomed Eliza into Y3 and Miss Price, who is working in Foundation Phase to cover some of the days I will be working for the Local Authority. We hope you both have had a great start to the new school term.

KS2 enjoyed their team building session with orienteering and archery. Thank you to Trewern Outdoor Education Centre for offering this experience, free of charge!

Foundation Phase have been planning for learning activities that they would like to do as part of their new topic.

This term our topics are:

  • Foundation Phase-Light and Dark

All children need to be dropped off at/collected from the Community Hall by an adult.  This is free of charge, and is being paid for from money raised at The Greenman last year, however children can bring in a small amount of money to buy refreshments eg crisps, sweets and squash. Water will be available for all children.

Next week year 3 are starting a block of music sessions with Andy McDade when they will be learning to play pbuzzes! This is a ten week free programme, delivered as part of the Powys Music Programme.

We will be streaming the match live,  and providing hot chocolate and biscuits at half-time, at a cost of £1.50 payable on Parentpay. We have also had to purchase a TV licence for this event, so any money raised on this day will help to cover the £159 cost of this.

Y6 had a lovely Service at Brecon Cathedral and celebrated with other Church in Wales Schools. It was a great experience.

We also had our Y6 Leavers’ concert, when all of our fabulous Year 6 children were able to share and celebrate their amazing talents. It was brilliant!

Y5 enjoyed a theme day at Crickhowell High School. It was a great opportunity to see the school and meet other children who will be going to the High School next year.

Of course, we are ending the week with our Y6 Sleepover and dinner. We are all very excited about this and I’m sure we’ll all be tucked up in bed and fast asleep by 9:30!

Our final figure for money raised last Friday from Sports Day, the Summer Fair  and the sale of ice-cream and sweets today is over £1150.65!!!! We are delighted and would like to thank everyone for their support.

Next week is our final week. It’s hard to believe another school year has come and gone. Lots going on, again.

Dear All,

I hope everyone has enjoyed our busy week!

It was great to see so many parents, grandparents and family at our Open Day, which I hope you all enjoyed.

It was also great fun to hold our first Sports Day in three years. Congratulations to Blue Team, but all of the children were amazing, as usual.

Thank you to everyone who attended our summer fair this afternoon, and to everyone who donated items and helped to set up, clear away and serve. It was a huge success. We will let you know the total when we have finished counting, but it is looking like we have raised in excess of £600! Amazing!!

We are delighted to announce that we have finally achieved our Cymraeg Campus bronze award. We were originally due to be assessed in March 2020, but this was cancelled due to COVID, so we have had to wait for two years. A massive thank you to our Criw Cymraeg, all of the children, Mrs James and Mrs Sandercock. 

Last call for our well-being survey. If you haven’t completed it yet, please do so as we will be discussing the results, and how we can improve, in our Governors’ meeting on Thursday. Thank you.

Dear All,

A lovely, very busy first week back!

Our Y5/6 children have had a fabulous few days on their residential trip. They were very adventurous and an absolute credit to themselves, you and the school. Thank you to the children, and Mrs Jones, Mrs Sandercock and Miss Powell for making this trip such a success.

Y3/4 visited The Wild Place and had a fantastic time. They saw so many animals and were also an absolute credit. Well done to everyone involved!

KS2 visited the Church to complete a wildflower survey. No bee stings this year, thank goodness, but lots of amazing wildlife and flowers.

Foundation Phase enjoyed the story of the Drama Llama, read by the author Rachel Morissroe and learnt lots about how to keep safe on the beach from the RNLI.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Green Man meeting. It looks like we have a great group of volunteers, but desperately need more. Please let us know if you are able to help in any way. Thank you.

We are rapidly approaching the end of the school year, and there is such a lot happening over the next few weeks. I have attached a new date sheet, which will hopefully help everyone to keep on track of what’s going on.

Next week we have cancelled the Foundation phase Club on Tuesday as they will have been to the beach during the day and will be very tired, as will staff!

Please note: The last week for clubs is wk bg 4th July. There will not be any clubs in the last week of term.

Jubilee Talent Show-children can come to school dressed in red, white and blue, or as a king or queen.

Dear All,

Another amazing, busy week.

I was greeted on Monday morning by a small group of children who were very eager to tell me about their weekend. They had made fresh lemonade and sold it to raise money for Ukraine. They raised over £30. This is an amazing achievement and shows just how ethically informed these children are. We’re very proud of them!

Foundation Phase had a fabulous trip to Bristol, visiting The SS Great Britain, KS2 started guitar lessons and Crickhowell Craft Club came in to help KS2 make some lovely Jubilee Bunting. Thank you to our brilliant volunteers. The children will be bringing this home to hang up outside in readiness for the Jubilee celebrations.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Green Man meeting. We have lots of volunteers, but any more offers of help would be fantastic.

Thank you to Jenny Edwards who once again has very generously donated over £600 from her plant stall. We are so grateful for this thoughtful contribution. Eco club have already put in a bid for new gardening equipment. Thank you very much!

What have we been doing? Rev Jeremy Bevan visited us for our weekly assembly, Foundation Phase have been green screening, PC Skyrme worked with Y6 and Y1-6 had a great time playing cricket on Wednesday; Terry Dickson said they were amazing! It almost feels like we are beginning to get back to some sense of normality!

Polite reminder: Please do not allow children to play on the outdoor equipment at the start and end of the day, as we are not insured without appropriate adult supervision. It is also important to leave the school grounds promptly at the end of the day as some of our clubs will be using the school grounds. Thank you for your support and co-operation.

Sunday School starts again this Sunday at St Catwg’s. There are lots of lovely activities planned and all are welcome.

Next week Friday is Comic Relief. The children have asked to come dressed in pyjamas for a minimum donation of £1 to Comic Relief. Please ensure children have something warm to wear outside, and appropriate footwear too.

After school clubs begin. All children who have returned a slip can stay for their chosen clubs. Please ensure you are ready to collect your child/ren at 4:30pm from their usual exit/entrance.

Dear All,

A lovely first week back, with so much to celebrate. Our Eisteddfod was amazing and showcased a lot of very happy, confident children! World Book Day was lots of fun. We’ve worked on Elmer, Room on the Broom, Tom’s Midnight Garden as well as several other stories. Don’t forget to look at Twitter to see what we have been doing. All children should have brought home a World Book Day token. Please let his/her class teacher know if they haven’t received one.

Thank you to everyone who bought cakes today. We have raised £200 in aid of Unicef Ukraine Charity. We will be closing our Just Giving page on Monday, if you haven’t yet donated, but can manage just a few pounds that would be fantastic. Thank you to everyone who has donated. We have had lots of fun running and have clocked up a massive  606 miles between us. This is a great achievement, but we have also raised over £500 for Cancer Research UK. A massive thank you for your huge generosity.

Y6 enjoyed a visit from Mrs Jackie Parker, headteacher at Crickhowell High School. 

Over the next three weeks, Terry Dickson will be working with Y1-6 children to develop their cricket skills. The first session is on Wednesday next week.

Weekly update 31st January 2022

Dear All,

Goodness me, what a week!

We have had several new positive cases in school, but I’m pleased to say on the whole people have not been too unwell, and the cases definitely seem to be slowing down.
Despite COVID we have had a lovely week in school working on St Dwynwen’s Day and celebrating 100 years of the Urdd. 


Due to the current Covid situation, some of our older children have decided they want to wear masks in school. We have not encouraged this, or included it in our preventative measures, as the guidance from Welsh Government has said it is not necessary. However, if you feel it is necessary for your child to wear a mask/face covering during the day, we understand, but ask you let us know your child will be wearing a mask before they come into school, and discuss the appropriate use and hygiene issues around wearing them with your child. Children will not need to wear masks during PE, outside during playtimes, or in the dinner hall. Thank you for your support in this matter. 

Little Sparks
The last few weeks has been a very challenging time for Little Sparks, but I’m delighted we are now fully open and have now appointed Hannah Osmond to work alongside Dannielle Gallop for the rest of this academic year. Hannah has a lot of early years experience and I’m sure will take the setting from strength to strength. I really appreciate everyone’s support and understanding. 

Parent Consultation Meetings-Wk Bg 14th February. These will once again be on TEAMS. Letters will be sent out early next week with further information.

56 Miles in February Challenge-Following my email earlier this week regarding one of our former pupils, Rosie Jarman, we have decided to also get involved in the 56 miles in February Challenge to support Cancer UK. We have discussed this with the School Council and they have come up with some great ideas to support this charity. Please see the attached letter. We really hope you will be able to get involved too and raise much needed money for this very worthy charity. 

Next Week:

Mon-Outdoor Learning for Y1/2

Tues-Y3/4 PE & Rev Jeremy Bevan Assemblies

Wed-Foundation Phase PE

Thur-Y5/6 PE & Outdoor Learning for Reception
