“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Art Clubbers’ Monmouth Show bench…

Art Clubbers’ Monmouth Show bench…

.benchFor the last few weeks the children at  Monday’s after school art club have been creating designs and images, which they have now skillfully applied to a wooden bench using a pyrography solid-point burner (similar to a soldering iron). With the help and guidance of Mrs Arnold, the bench (provided by the Monmouth Show committee) has been decorated with images linked to the show. Please look out for the bench if you are visiting the show this Saturday.  Prizes will be announced in the Monmouth Show arena at approximately 3:30pm on Saturday – if you are at the show we would love to see you for the presentations..bench2
