A Royal Invitation!








Friday 18th May 2018

This week the children have been making a royal carriage for Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding.  As part of their enhanced activities the children  have made Union Jack wind socks, as well as royal wedding crowns.    

Our writing activities have involved the children in writing a set of instructions on how to make jelly; they then had lots of fun making jelly for our royal wedding party.  The children explored  how we could turn the solid into a liquid by heating it;  then the children investigated if we could change the jelly back to a solid again!  The children were very excited!

In Maths this week the children have been involved in capacity.  They experimented with lots of different sized containers in the water tray and investigated how much volume they would hold!  The children used a measuring jug to measure amounts of water to make the jelly.


On Friday we all had a very exciting day walking down to Magor Church for our royal wedding.  The children had lots of fun re-creating a wedding ceremony and looked lovely in their special clothes.  They had a great afternoon at their party.  I hope the royal couple have as much fun too.  Thank you for all of your food contributions.

In PE we  continued to practice for Sports Day.  This week we had a go at doing the Up and under race, the egg and spoon race, as well as the monster feet race. 

We have now had most consent forms signed and returned for our St Fagans trip.  If your child would like to join us on this trip, and you haven’t returned the consent form and voluntary contribution via ParentPay, please sign do so asap.

Finally, you are invited to Reception’s class assembly on Wednesday 27th June at 9.15 in the school hall.  Your child should have brought home a letter with their lines attached.  Please help them learn their lines.  Unless otherwise specified, they may come to school dressed in their clothes they wore for the royal wedding.  Please send in their uniform so that they can change after the assembly.

Thank you for your continued support
