Weatherman Walking visit July 2017

We’ve had a very exciting visit in Presteigne Primary School this morning. The BBC visited to film part of their ‘Weatherman Walking’ TV series starring Derek Brockway. The show will be aired in February and features Tom Davies, a former pupil and teacher at our school.

Awe and Wonder: Science July 2017

All the children and staff have had a wonderful science day. The children, from Nursery to Year 6, worked in mixed age groups. Here are some of the fun activities they have done around the school.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our St David’s Day concert. The children were excellent and performed Welsh songs, poems and told the story of St David. Here are some of the children in their Welsh outfits.

Jump Rope For Heart - Sponsored Skip to London

This morning, every class took advantage of the dry weather and picked up a rope to play their part. The children in the foundation phase classes skipped 700 metres each, years 3 and 4 completed 1400 metres each and years 5 and 6 completed at least 2100 metres each. As a result of the fantastic effort put in by everybody, we  have already reached our target of 155 miles (the equivalent distance of skipping from Presteigne Primary School to the Olympic Park in London!)

 

A huge Llongyfarchiadau (Congratulations) to every child in the school, and a huge thank you to everybody who has sponsored us. We are sure that we have raised a large amount for The British Heart Foundation. Thank you also to our Bronze Young Ambassadors for helping to organise the event. The final sponsorship total will be given once all sponsorship has been collected.

 

Gwaith gwych pawb!
