“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.”

This Week in Class ……..

This Week in Class ……..

Acorn Class: This week we have been looking at the Muslim festival of Eid ul Fitr. We have been learning all about the celebration that takes place at the end of Ramadan and have even had a go at making our very own ‘Happy Eid’ cards.

Beech Class: Continuing the children’s research about their chosen countries we discussed and predicted, as a class, which countries were closest to or furthest away from England. The children drew their own flags of their countries and then ordered themselves according to their predictions.
The children have also been focusing on the upcoming World Cup and have each been allocated a country to research and support throughout the competition. We looked at creating our own Acrostic poems centred around the words ‘World Cup’.

Oak Class have been looking at Islamic Calligraphy. We looked at some examples and watched a video of a calligrapher. We translated what God meant to us into Arabic and started our own calligraphy pieces.
