Year 6 WWII Production

26 Sep 2018

Our Year 6’s had an amazing time watching the WWII production. They learnt all about what it was like living in this time. Children were involved in acting out what happened when the air raid siren warned people to take shelter. They also learnt that butter, sugar, milk, cheese and many other foods needed to be rationed. It was a difficult time for those children who were evacuated from the cities to the countryside for their safety. Many having to leave their families behind and not return for months or even a year. They were able to visualise different aspects of WWII life and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We have added lots of lovely photos to the gallery section of the website, please take a look.

On Wednesday 13th June, Penygarn school football team traveled to Cwmbran Stadium as they were involved in The Newport County Cup. Fourteen teams were entered and split into two groups of seven with the top four teams in each group progressing to the knockout stages. After four emphatic wins and two losses Penygarn progressed to the next round after finishing second in the group. In the quarter finals we met Padre Pio. The game ended nil-nil and went to penalties, unfortunately Penygarn were knocked out. It was a great run by the team who played excellent football throughout. Great progress has been made by the team who have reached the knockout stages of the previous two tournaments, and reaching the semi-finals of the Gwent Police cup. We will look forward to the next tournament and hopefully progressing further.

Outstanding Performance at Torfaen Dance Festival

23 May 2018

Our children have done it once again, they've given all they've got with an amazing performance on the third evening of the Torfaen Dance Festival. This is the first year the festival has been held and it provides the opportunity for schools to showcase their dance skills, alongside raising money for charity. They performed to Little Mix 'Word Up' brilliantly and were met with rapturous applause. Dylan from Year 5 was highly commended for his performance and awarded a Torfaen Dance Festival T-shirt. The event was well attended by staff and parents, and we are all already looking forward to next year's event! A picture of the team has been added to full story which you can see by clicking on the news title.
