Proud School 
The Monarchs were runners up in the Show Racism the Red Card Awards ceremony out of 461 entries!
The pupils were also invited to perform their original which they did to huge applause. We are so proud of them!
Wonderful Work
Last month, pupils in Hafan enjoyed a writing challenge where between them, they rewrote one of Mrs Thomas’ favourite children’s books; The Day the Crayons Quit.
They enjoyed listening to the story and then demonstrated excellent visualisation skills and used their inference skills to create some funny pieces of writing! We have some very creative and humorous writers amongst us.

 ‘Where is the Library?’


Article of the Week

When adults make decisions, they should think about how their decisions will affect children. All adults should do what is best for children. Governments should make sure children are protected and looked after by their parents, or by other people when this is needed. Governments should make sure that people and places responsible for looking after children are doing a good job.
