Dear parents/carers

FAMILY BREAKFAST – Friday 6th March

Our next family breakfast club is next week, Friday 6th March from 8:30am. There is a £1 cost for any adult attending. Please come along to enjoy breakfast with your children.

Film Club

Unfortunately, Miss Brown is no longer teaching at Cwmffrwdoer so there will be no film club for the rest of this term. New clubs will be arranged for the summer term.

Come and join us for Creative Arts in all classes! – Tuesday 31/3/20 morning

Please add this date to your diaries. Classes will be opening their doors to parents and governors to show how creative arts are taught in line with the new curriculum in Wales.

More information will be shared nearer to the date.
