Swansea City sessions

Pupils in Dosbarth Cadno have been the first in the school to enjoy the fantastic session provided by the Swansea City Community Trust.  Sessions involve classroom based numeracy and literacy work followed by physical outdoor sessions.  During this school year all junior pupils will get to take part in these sessions.

Welly Wednesday

Settling in to a new term at Stepaside CP school the Nursery and Reception Pupils have been making the most of their surroundings with “Welly Wednesday” each week.

They have built a scarecrow, enjoy scavenger hunts around the school grounds, played games and explored their new outdoor area.  Mr Stevens and Mr Wyatt have provided them with a new mud kitchen to enjoy.  Pupils also took a trip to the Pumpkin Patch at Greenacres market Garden, Llanteg.  With transport from Taf Valley coaches they made their way to explore the patch and learn all about how pumpkins grow.


Swansea City Football Tournament

Pictured is the Stepaside C.P. School football team that took part in the Pembrokeshire qualifiers for the EFL Kids Cup organised by Swansea City Community Trust at Greenhill School Tenby on Tuesday 15th October.

In total, the school played seven matches across the day. They played to a high standard throughout the tournament and were supported by a large group of parents and grandparents.

In their first game, they were defeated 1-0 by a strong Tenby team in a match that could have gone either way. In their second match, they beat St Teilos with goals from Olly and Dylan. They continued to play well and next defeated Pembroke Dock with Dylan scoring twice. In their next match, they defeated Penrhyn 4- 0 with goals from Logan (2) Dylan and Kai.

The winning run was continued as they beat Hafan y Mor 3-0 with goals from Dylan and Logan (2). Another very good performance against Golden Grove was rewarded with a 3-1 victory with goals this time coming from Olly, Logan and Dylan T. The final game of the day was against St Florence – this game ended 1-1 with a goal from Olly and a fine penalty save from Theo.

After all seven games, this resulted in Stepaside finishing a very creditable second to Tenby in the league table. Mr Harries would like to thank all of the parents who helped to transport and support the team and would also like to congratulate the football team on their great performances throughout the tournament.

Fairtrade Football


With Year 6 away in Cardiff our year 3, 4 and 5 pupils stepped up to form our team for the Fairtrade Football tournament held at Tavernspite school.

Beaten into second place in the final the boys put on a great performance.

Well done boys


Cardiff Capers

Dosbarth Cadno have returned from their action packed residential in Cardiff.  Their three days were filled with activities including swimming, ice skating, and bowling alongside visits to the Royal Mint, Cardiff Castle and Big Pit.  Organised by Urdd this trip provides an opportunity for our pupils to participate in these recreational and educational activities and gain experience of being away from home.  It was an honour to take our pupils on this trip as their behaviour was excellent and they were great fun to be around.
