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.


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


Match Fund

We have been very fortunate that an anonymous donor has come forward to match fund our fundraising this term.  We have set the target at £1000 which they will match with another £1000.  This is a very generous offer and we have been working hard here at school and with the help of parents and friends to reach this target.

So far we have held a disco, a prize bingo, a clothing collection and rummage sale and received a donation from a raffle at Twisted Tangles New Salon.

Our total so far stands at £669.50, amazing, well done everyone.


Our next event is………

Our fundraising target for this event is £330.50, can we do it?  YES WE CAN!  with your help….please 🙂

These funds will go towards buying outdoor play equipment and resources for our early years pupils.



Rainbow Run

Here we are on the start line for our Rainbow Run.  We had such a fantastic afternoon, a really community feel to the whole event.  We are so very grateful to all those who sponsored our pupils and to those who stepped in on the day to help man the cake stall and raffle.  We are also very thankful for all the donated prizes for fundraisers and the raffle.  We raised over £3000 which we are using for our new IT suite.
