Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
An early newsletter reaches you this evening, as I’ll be otherwise disposed in Cardiff with our Year 5 & 6 pupils for the rest of the week. I hope all the children have a great time. Looking at what we have planned, it will I’m sure, prove to be an action packed trip and one which you’ll of course be able to keep an eye on via our Twitter feed. Could all pupils ensure they are in school by 7.50am, so we can get on the road. Also, please make sure that your child has a sleeping bag and also brings a packed lunch for tomorrow. Hopefully, the weather will be favourable so we can enjoy the joys of Cardiff Bay. I’m sure there will also be tweets to be seen sharing activities back here at the ranch between now and Friday.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
