Skip2BFit Thursday 9th March 

Fun for all the classes last week... skipping has become part of school life this week now too !

FOREST EXPLORERS is this weekend on 

SATURDAY 18th MARCH from 10-12.

In this session we will be looking at the Forest Waters project being undertaken by Forestry England to improve watery habitat.

We will walk to the site looking for signs of frogs and toads and for their spawn. Then we will be channelling our inner beaver and building leaky woody dams, which will help to slow the flow, improving wet habitats, and reducing downstream flood risk.

Please bring wellies, waterproofs and gloves to use whilst building dams.

Location will be provided on booking.

Please let me know names and ages of children and numbers of adults attending, by contacting The Forest Explorers Team direct -





Non school uniform and we're inviting all children to wear something red.. Learn a joke you share on the day.

School Christmas Celebrations 2022!

How wonderful it has been to enjoy the excitement of Christmas as a whole school together including the fabulous Christmas Meal this week.  The classes have each received a present from Santa.  

Travelling by Tuba came into school on Thursday this week - certainly an entertaining team!

We would also like to thank the generosity of the community who have supported us and contributed towards the treats this week bringing smiles to the children's faces - especially Lydbrook Central Stores and The Applegreen Daff Y Nant Services.

We wish you all enjoy a very Merry Christmas and look forward to sharing 2023 with you all... from the 4th January !


At Lydbrook Primary School we have introduced a new and excigint whole school PSHE scheme called JIGSAW.   Jigsaw combines PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education), emotional literacy, mindfullness, social skills and spiritual development.

Jigsaw is designed as a whole school approach, with all the classes (from Robins to Hawks) working on the same theme (Puzzle) at the same time. This enables each Puzzle to start with an introductory assembly and song, generating a whole school focus for adults and children alike. 


Jigsaw aims to help children know and value who they really are and how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

There are six Puzzles (half-term units of work) each with six Pieces (lessons). Every year each class will study the same Puzzle at the same time (sequentially ordered from September to July), allowing for whole school themes and the end of Puzzle product, for example, a display (in our main corridor) or exhibition (like the Garden of Dreams and Goals) to be shared and celebrated by the whole school. Each class is taught one lesson per week and all lessons are delivered in an age- and stage-appropriate way so that they meet the children’s needs.

The different puzzle pieces are:
