Pantomime Visit The school have kindly purchased tickets, for all pupils in classes Reception to Year 6, to attend the Congress Theatre to watch a performance of Puss in Boots this Christmas. The visit will take place within normal school hours, but pupils will have a slightly earlier lunch than usual.
Merry Maendymas Thank you to our new Friends of Maendy members who have attended meetings in the past week to arrange our Christmas Fete. There will be lots to see and do at the event, and all classes will be working on a product to sell on a stall. The event will operate in a similar way to the Summer Fete, whereby the learners will be collected from classes from 2pm and taken around by a guardian. Money raised will be put towards FPh and KS2 Christmas parties.
Welsh Phrase of the Fortnight
We continue to encourage everyone to use Welsh throughout the week. We are trying to use simple familiar phrases to help develop our speaking skills. Please encourage your child to speak Welsh as much as they can out of school.
Our Welsh phrase of the week for this coming week will be: Nadolig Llawen – Merry Christmas
Maendy is a ‘Rights Respecting School’. The United Nation Article 28 states ‘every child has the right to have a primary education’. We are linking our attendance performance to this article.
