Newsletter-17th March

Theme next week: Parents and family

Welsh phrase of the week: Dw I ddim yn siwr- I’m not sure

Best Attending class Year 5

A huge thank you for the donations to the Morriston Family Appeal. Our ‘Bee Citizens’ pupil voice group have been very concerned about the families who have been affected by the explosion. Their thoughts and kindness have really impressed me this week; I’m very proud of them for making a difference! Da iawn pawb! We have raised £305.

Residential for next year’s Year 5

We have provisionally booked a 2 night stay at the Urdd Centre in Cardiff Bay for the children going in to Year 5 next year. This will be during March 2024. The cost is likely to be approx. £150 including bus, accommodation and plenty of activities to keep them entertained. This year’s Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed the experience and all thought a two-night stay would be better. They had to fit in a lot during the day so we have enquired about extending it to an extra day. More information about this will follow after Easter.

The Big Wheel and Walk to School week

Next week we will be encouraging you all to walk, scoot, park and stride or cycle to school. This is an initiative that our ‘Healthy Bees’ would like to promote so we would love it if you could help them reach their target of three quarters of  the school getting her by walking or wheeling! We can do it!!

Breakfast Club

Please can I remind you that there is a £1 charge to attend breakfast club from 8am-8.20am. Breakfast club is FREE from 8.20. This cost goes towards paying for staff to supervise the children during this time. If there is a problem with payments, please contact Mrs Seager in the school office.


If you have any good quality bikes, mud kitchens, sit along toys that we can use in our Foundation phase garden, we would be very keen to take them off your hands. Please see Mrs Havard for more information.

Family Learning

Don’t forget family learning afternoons on a Wednesday afternoon between 1pm and 3pm. Parents and carers of children in reception, Year1 and Year 2 can attend free of charge!

Nursery Numbers

Our Nursery numbers are quite low for September 2023. If you know any children who haven’t registered for school yet, please collect an application form from the school office or contact Mrs Seager or Mrs Glass for more information.

Health visitor drop in

We are delighted to tell you that our local health visitors Rhian and Brogan will be offering drop in sessions every Thursday morning after Easter. They can help with toileting toddlers, behaviour strategies, speech and language support or here for a general chat. They will be based in our school hall. If you’d like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me on 01792 893682 or speak to any member of staff.

School Development Plan 2022-23

Every year we set ourselves targets to develop our school for the coming year. We work closely with children, staff and governors to share ideas with a view to improvement.

This year our targets are:

Implement and embed a whole school approach to emotional and mental well-being
Developing key skills across the curriculum including literacy, numeracy and digital competence
Developing our assessment procedures so children know how to improve their work
Develop our own Tre Uchaf Curriculum including new guidance on Relationships and Sexual Education (RSE) and Religion, Values and Ethics ( RVE).
