Parent/Carer newsletter – March 13th 2020

Dear parents/carers

Staff training – Nant-Y-Parc Primary School

All staff attended Nant-Y-Parc Primary School in Caerphilly for a Practice Worth Sharing event following their excellent inspection report on Monday afternoon. The visit was very beneficial in supporting staff to further develop our own practice in areas that were observed.

Come and join us for Creative Classroom events in all classes on Tuesday 31/3/20

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.

Some classes have already sent invites out.

Home Learning details for all children

In the next few days, you will receive a letter with details of all internet log-in information that will allow all children to access the Welsh Government Hwb learning portal as well as Giglets Reading Programme. These have been previously sent out on slips but we have decided to include them all on one letter for ease of access.
