‘Pawsome’ Readers


Dosbarth Mochyn Daear have been participating in Burns By your Side reading to dogs scheme this year.  Michelle brings in her dog, the very popular Frankie, each Monday and the pupils get the chance to read to him.  The scheme boosts the confidence of reluctant readers as the dog provides relaxation and a non judgemental audience.

Sports Day

Thank you to all pupils, parents, family members and staff for a fantastic sports day this year.  Nursery pupils ran their races in the morning followed by the rest of the school in the afternoon.

A big thank you to the Friends group for their help with refreshments.  The day raised £185 which went towards medals and the track markings.

Pictured here are the winners of the house shield and the individual year group trophies.

Overall winners were Grove House.




Gardening Time


Pupils from Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been very busy outside today.  They have been tidying the raised bed, mowing the grass and getting ready for planting.

One pupil left school telling his mum, “that was my best day ever”


Pizza Express

Finishing off their topic work on Bread, pupils from Dosbarth Mochyn Daear at Stepaside CP School have been on a visit to Pizza Express in Carmarthen.

Mrs Badham organised the trip and was accompanied by LSA, Miss Howells, and Caretaker, Mr Bowen, who drove the minibus.  Once at the restaurant in St Catherine’s Walk, Carmarthen each pupils was able to make their own pizza alongside Richard and the staff.  Drinks were served to the pupils while they waited for their pizzas to cook.  Each pupil returned to school with their own pizza in a box which they took home to enjoy with their family.  Mrs Badham, class teacher said “Our grateful thanks go to Richard and the staff at Pizza Express, Carmarthen for an enjoyable trip and for the lovely pizzas.”   Once back in school the pupils wrote and illustrated thank you letters which have been sent to the staff at the restaurant.
