Welsh Government have decided that all Primary Schools in Wales need to move to Online Learning for the first 2 weeks of January. Each of our classes have their own Google Classroom where children can access work.
Your children will need support to get onto Google Classroom to complete their activities. If you are unsure how to do this please watch the video below. If you are still confused, then please contact your child's class teacher via their email (linked below).
Key Stage 2
Your children will have used Google Classroom in school and should be confident accessing and completing work on their own. However, they may need your encouragement to do this. If you need to contact your child's class teacher their email addresses are linked below. Please make sure you are also part of your child's class dojo as teachers communicate with parents via this platform. We have left links to all class dojo's below.

Fortunately during lockdown we were able to loan devices to lots of our families to enable them to complete online learning at home. If you were loaned a device please ensure your child brings this device into school with them, so it can be used in the classroom as well as at home. If you still don't have a device for your child to use please contact us.
During lockdown we introduced Google Classroom to children and parents. We are currently posting weekly homework to help support our class learning. At the moment children are being asked to complete:
- Oxford Owls reading
- CLIC/ Learn its
This online platform is being used a lot in our classrooms, so children in Key Stage 2 should be confident using it at home. Children in Foundation Phase will need support from an adult. We will sometimes ask children to finish work they have started in school at home to support our blended learning approach.
