Exciting opportunities ahead for pupils

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda Bawb!-Happy New Year Everyone!
We would like to welcome everyone back to the spring term and what a fantastic start it has been. The children are embracing new themes within their classes and are very busy sharing ideas during learning experiences and playtimes.

Since the beginning of term we have begun The Lead Creative Schools Project with year 2 and 4 collaborating with Our Lady’s St.Michael, Abergavenny. The Lead Creative Schools Scheme aims to provide the opportunity to develop an innovative and bespoke programme of learning. Therefore, the pupils are leading their learning sharing what they would like to find out and have been communicating as Pen Pals informing each other of their projects. There is certainly a buzz in both schools, igniting real life learning and engaging the pupils through creative approaches to share their ideas. Upbeat Music and Arts are the Creative Practitioners facilitating this project showcasing expertise within percussion, dance and art. We welcome Upbeat into Gilwern and look forward to working with them.
Preparations for auditions are underway for the summer production of “Return to the Forbidden Planet”. Watch this space for further information…

Welcome Back

We are looking forward to seeing you all after the Christmas break.

School starts back on Monday 8th January 218 with breakfast club open as normal .
