Primary school visits


Ysgol Emrys ap learners, Angel Wyman and Oliver Giblin-Jones, have been visiting primary schools in the area.

These included Ysgol Maes Owen, Ysgol Y Faenol, Ysgol Y Castell, Ysgol St Elfod and Ysgol St George.

Angel and Oliver visited the primary schools to speak about what it is like to be a learner at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan.

Miss Sarah Banim, Transition Co-ordinator, accompanied the pair. She said: “We went to the local Primary schools to raise awareness of the upcoming Open Evening on October 5th where learners will be able to take part in activities throughout the school. We also told them about the many free transition activities taking place this year. This is being helped by being able to transport the learners from their primary school in our brand new minibus.

“Some of the experiences they will have this year are Forest schools, making a ukulele in design and technology then playing it in Music. They will also have opportunity to take part in print-making , dance with a professional dance teacher,  MasterChef, Crest Science Award , tennis and much more.”

Angel said: “I was excited to return to my primary school, Ysgol Maes Owen. I spoke to Year 5 and 6 about the fun activities we do in English and maths. Some had concerns about moving up to high school but I was able to reassures them.”

Oliver said: “Going back to Ysgol St Elfod made me a little nervous. I told them what happens on Transition Day and the school trips I have been on to places like Glan Llyn and Chester Zoo. I also spoke about the after school clubs I have enjoyed such as sailing.”
