Love your Burial Ground Week 2023

Dosbarth 1 and 2 had a lovely afternoon at Gladestry Church spending time in our very beautiful church yard. The Eco committee planned lots of activities for us which involved a scavenger hunt, drawing and painting pictures and identifying different types of trees. We spent the morning preparing some healthy fruit kebabs and decorating biscuits so that we could enjoy a picnic at the Church too. We found out lots of new things about our church yard and were able to appreciate just how special it is. Da iawn pawb!

King Charles III Coronation Celebration

All of the pupils at Gladestry had a great week last week in preparation for the King’s coronation. They designed their own coronation bunting to decorate the classroom for our celebration, created finger painted British flags to wave and even drew some beautiful portraits of King Charles to display on our windows! We then invited our adults in to celebrate with us on Friday where we enjoyed tea and cakes and sang our coronation songs. Bendigedig Dosbarth 1 and 2!


To celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week, the children in Dosbarth 1 and 2 have ‘Dressed to Express’ by coming to school as what they would like to be when they are older. We have had an excellent day filled with fun activities to find out more about our friends and talk about how we are similar and different. We worked in groups to learn a new dance, complete some team games outside, create a puzzle piece all about ourselves and play connect bingo. What a brilliant way to end our week!

Visiting the church

On Monday, Class 2 walked up to Gladestry Church to view the beautiful stained glass windows. We read the information to learn about the different stories that the windows told and we had a go at sketching some of the windows too. These gave us some brilliant ideas to go back and create our own stained glass windows at school!

Trip to King Arthur's Labyrinth.

Gladestry School pupils went on a School Trip to King Arthur’s Labyrinth in Machynlleth. We travelled together on the big coach and enjoyed lots of exciting activities. We walked and sailed by boat through the caves to listen about Kind Arthur’s story, it was dark! We went to the gift shop and paid for our items and travelled through the spooky maze to find the dragons, we saw lots of them!

We are looking forward to writing about our trip when we come back to school.

The Red Book?

On Wednesday the whole school went for a Welly Walk up to Gladestry Church. We found a big red book at the Church that looked very mysterious, but we couldn’t decide what it was called. We took the book into the Church to see what was inside. We found a knight, book called ‘The Story of Pwll’, some flowers, a crown, a magical wand and a silver cup. When we got back to school, we did some research to find out what this book could be. We found out that it is the Red Book of Hergest.
