Transition Activity - 23rd & 24th June


Our Year 3 pupils are very keen to help the Year 2 pupils feel happy, confident and looking forward to September and, next week, we are going on a school trip together. We are walking to Hawarden Castle Park, doing a minibeast hunt, having a picnic and sketching an Elizabethan house. The owners of this house are relatives of pupils in our school and have invited us to have a picnic on their lawn, give us a guided tour of a couple of rooms inside their house and provide ice lollies for the children. The trip has been fully risk assessed and meets all requirements for COVID regulations.


  • Class 9 and Class 7 will go on Wednesday 23rd June
  • Class 10 and Class 8 will go on Thursday 24th June


We are leaving school at 10:45am and returning by 2pm at the latest.


Therefore, can all Year 3 pupils come to school in sports clothes on both of these days please. 


For the trip... they will also need a healthy packed lunch, a water bottle and a sun hat/raincoat depending on the weather. If it is hot, please apply sunscreen before they come to school. If your child suffers from hayfever, please make sure they have had medication at home before school too. 


If your child has school dinners, please let us know by Monday 21st June if you want to order a packed lunch from school so we can inform Mrs Allen. It would be great if your child could carry their packed lunch in a small backpack to leave their hands free. Please don’t worry if you haven’t got one! 


Many thanks for your continued support,

Roar of the Dragon Homework

Christmas Plans...


As with everything else this year, our Christmas festivities will be a little different. As we cannot gather in Church for our usual carol service, we are going to perform a simple Nativity play, record it and send it to you for you to watch at home. 


The children have been allocated a part - totally randomly and fairly. They will be either: a Donkey, a Villager, Mary, Joseph or the Innkeeper. 


If possible, could you gather together a very simple costume?

For example, if they are:

1. Donkey - Brown, grey, or black t-shirt or donkey costume.

2. Villager/Innkeeper - Old large shirt, necktie, belt.

3. Mary - Blue dress.

4. Joseph - Same as the villager with tea towel and tie for headgear. Boys can wear trousers and girls can wear trousers or leggings.


Could these please be brought into school on Monday 7th or Tuesday 8th December at the latest in a labelled bag. 


The children will be given their part this week. It is very simple. Could you please help them to learn it. Any problems let us know as we have got a few bits and bobs in school that we can use.


Many thanks,


The Year 3 Team

Dear parents,


As you know we are ventilating our classrooms by keeping the windows and doors open as much as possible during the day, following guidance from the Welsh Government. With the weather turning a little colder, we thought that a reminder might be useful. We have talked to the children about wearing an extra layer under their shirts, wearing tights rather than socks for the girls, and a warm winter coat every day. 


Please could we also ask you to ensure your child has a suitable bedtime? Lots of children are coming into school saying that they are up late in the evening watching TV or playing games. 


Over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas they will really struggle if they are tired!  As will we!!!!  


Many thanks for your continued support,


Year 3 team
