Gwnewch eich gorau glas!

Update from Mrs Phillips


Spring has definitely sprung in Sketty Primary.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to our Swansea Schools Stand Up for Ukraine sunflower planting fundraiser. We raised £362 which, when added to the whole schools total, looks set to total over £22,000! A super effort from everyone, to help and support an awful situation.

March is always a busy time in school. It begins on St David's day which has now developed into a fantastic fortnight of activities finishing today with the Chairing of the Bard. Please watch the website for the name of the crowned winner.

It’s our day to celebrate World Book Day! As I look out of my office, I can see lots of Hogwarts pupils who have turned up for the day. Mary Poppins and Alice in Wonderland are here too. Alongside the Little Mermaid and Willy Wonka, lots of different characters from the children's favourite books are having a wonderful day!! I believe I’ve seen some characters from Encanto… but we don’t talk about Bruno do we?? And I’m still looking for Where’s Wally?! 

Just when we couldn’t be any busier it’s Comic Relief – Red nose day too!! With all this fun going on we ask, "Can the children be learning anything?" Rest assured a huge amount of learning takes place through our awareness days! Please see our website and follow us on twitter to see just some of the activities the children are taking part in.

A big thankyou to all families who took part in our community window trail based on your favourite books as part of our World Book Day celebration. A super effort was made by everyone, well done indeed! Thanks to Mr Crofts for organising!

Just when you think you can close the lid on the dressing up box, we have a few more events happening next week.

Monday is a very important day as it is the awareness day for Down's Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy.

To show awareness and support for Down's Syndrome, we wear odd socks and it's wear green to show awareness and support of Cerebral Palsy. It's up to you entirely if you want to join in!!

And finally, I do not have a Covid update at the moment, so we'll carry on as we are, probably up to Easter. As soon as I have any information I will pass it on to you.

Thanks to all staff for making our events such a success and thank you to all parents/carers for your continued support. A big well done to our fabulous children, it almost feels like normal school life has returned.
