“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.”

Scarecrow entry for Monmouth Show…

Scarecrow entry for Monmouth Show…

Year 4 spent Tuesday morning, working with Mrs Howie, putting the finishing touches to our entry for the Monmouth Show Scarecrow Competition. Our scarecrow ‘Mother Earth’ has a ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ theme. She was made by our Art Clubbers from recycled newspapers and plastic bags. Year 6 painted her to represent the land and seas. Her outfit is made from donated fabric samples, on which the children created nature inspired silhouettes. The patterned leaves on her top are inspired by our class names – Acorn, Beech & Oak and were decorated by Beech Class. We hope you will look out for her, along with the other scarecrows, on the Monmouth Show site this Saturday if you are visiting it.
