Cross Country Update!


The cross country season kicked off with a bang last month and pupils from Betws Primary were eager participants. The first event of the season was held at Bryntirion Comprehensive school and there was a very strong turnout of over a hundred children. Betws had runners in all race categories and every participant tried extremely hard to achieve their best result. The weather was very favourable and an enjoyable morning was had by all. A […]

Remembrance Day 2015


  Remembrance day at Betws Primary paid great respect for all those who are serving and have served in past wars. We spent the morning learning about the different charities that benefit from kind donations made by the public and the impact it has upon veterans and people who are serving. Our service was followed by a moving and poignant song which was sung by four Year 6 pupils and a heart warming prayer from Reverend Pare. Lest we Forget.

Betws Primary Meets The All Blacks!


What an eventful last day of the half term! Whilst the school celebrated the final day of Roald Dahl book week, the tag rugby team were on a special mission to Bridgend College’s Pencoed Campus. We had been specially selected by our local AYPD officer Jo Delve to take part in a tag rugby training session organised and led by the Ospreys rugby coaches. As if that wasn’t good enough, to top it all off, […]

Holly Class


  Wow what an action packed half term!! We have learned many interesting and important facts throughout our 999 Emergency topic and hopefully we all know how to keep ourselves safe at home and near the road now. We’ve written fantastic interviews inspired by our visitors from the Welsh Ambulance Service and we particularly enjoyed our school visit to Bridgend Fire Station and Bridgend Library.     Our half term ended with fantastic fun during […]

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!


Earlier this term, the Gregory Brothers paid us a welcome visit to remind us of the importance of recycling. Their show was (as always) extremely informative and entertaining. A good time was had by all pupils, and their message will encourage us to be even more Eco-friendly, at school and at home.

Maple Class Update!


This half term in our literacy lessons, we are doing lots of work to build up to writing a description. We have looked at rollercoasters, theme parks and the film ‘Inside Out’ to gather adjectives, similes and alliteration. We have even started to describe the forces we may feel when on the rides! As you can see from the images, the pupils have produced some impressive work, well done Maple class!      



This week, the school cricket club paid a very special visit to the Swalec Cricket Stadium at Sapphire Gardens in Cardiff. We had the whole stadium to ourselves and our very own tour guide Andrew was full of informative facts and humorous stories about the stadium. The pupils visited the commentary box, took part in an interactive ICT cricket game and were even allowed to try on the visitor’s jerseys inside the changing rooms. During the afternoon, […]

Feel The Force!


Maple class paid a visit to Bryngarw park at the beginning of the term to experience forces in motion! Codylee felt the air resistance against her face when zooming down the slide! Callum felt the friction generating heat on the palms of his hands as he slid down the pole! Kyle pulled himself up the steps to get to the slide! We have learnt lots about forces through hands-on experiences and experiments!
