PARENTS of children who attend a Barry Welsh-medium school have banded together to make a video marking the end of their primary school life.

The Ysgol Gwaun y Nant families realised the Year 6 pupils may not return to lessons ahead of them beginning their secondary school experience in September.

And acknowledging a video that Gwaun y Nant staff had produced, the Year 6 class decided to film a reply.

Mum, Ceri Rogers, of White Farm, Barry, was one of the parents who took up the task.

Mrs Rogers, 36, a Cardiff Airport executive lounge supervisor, said: “The video is based on the Year 6 class at Ysgol Gwaun Y Nant.

“The teachers had sent a video to the school so we wanted to send a reply back to them.

“The children missed the school and their teacher, Mr Tim Steadman.

“There is a chance that Year 6 won’t return to their primary school.

“They will miss out on their final months with their school friends and miss special events such as their prom and sports day so we wanted to make something special for them to keep and look back on.”

“The idea came about on a Thursday evening via the parents messaging group,” she said. “All the mums and children wanted to be a part of it and started suggesting ideas.

“We have got an amazing group of parents that work well together and support each other.

“I’ll be quite sad when we all get split up in September.

“We decided to base the video around the children’s Year 6 leavers hoodies.

“Doing something fun that related to them then passing the hoodie to the next person.”

She added: “The videos came in fast and by Sunday afternoon the video went live on Facebook and the school posted it to their twitter and Instagram pages.

“We all loved the video it made us all quite emotional.”

“This video wouldn’t have been possible without the support and dedication of a fab parent group and the amazing friendship between our Year 6 class.”
