House of Joy - A link with Uganda
Fran Richley (a regular visitor to the school in recent years) came to take assembly with his wife Linda before they head off for an Adventure in Uganda next Thursday. 

Fran and Linda are working with a primary school called House of Joy, and hope to help us make some new international links. 
Children at the school are learning English, and we hope that classes will be able to write to tell us what life is like there - and for our children to write to tell them all about life in Abercanaid.
Fran and Linda will be back in December to give us an update.
In the Summer Term we are hoping to arrange a visit from their Headmaster.
We have already found out that school life at House of Joy is very different to our school and we hope to raise some funds to help the children there. 

Abercanaid School Mates
Present School with New Football Kit

Today Mrs Sarah Pritchard (Chair of Abercanaid School Mates) visited the school with Mr Darran Brooks from Brookmans Electrical Wholesalers, who have sponsored the school's new football kit.  The new kit is fantastic! Children can't wait to put it to good use in our inter-school competitions!
A huge Thank You to Brookmans and The School Mates for making this happen!

Techniquest Light and Sound kit KS2

The children in KS2 have thoroughly enjoyed using the Techniquest Light and Sound kit. There are many different types of activities in the kit which has enabled them to explore science practically. There's been lots of discussion about sonar, the human voice box and shadows to name but a few! Please enjoy the photos below:
