Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
We’re looking forward to tonight’s Summer Fair. Thank you for the chocolate donations on our own clothes day. I hope the weather holds. With thunderstorms forecast for Monday plus overnight rain, it’s not looking great for our Sports Day. We’ve decided not to hold the event on Monday and try for Tuesday, hoping the wet weather will have passed and the field will have dried. As ever, I’ll try and keep you updated.

Rydym yn edrych ymlaen at y Ffair Haf heno. Diolch am y rhoddion siocled ar ein diwrnod dillad di-wisg. Gobeithio y bydd y tywydd yn dal. Gyda rhagolwg taranau ar gyfer dydd Llun a glaw dros nos, nid yw’n edrych yn dda ar gyfer ein Mabolgampau. Rydym wedi penderfynu peidio â chynnal y digwyddiad ddydd Llun a cheisio eto dydd Mawrth, gan obeithio y bydd y tywydd gwlyb wedi mynd heibio a bydd y cae wedi sychu. Fel arfer, byddaf yn ceisio eich diweddaru.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth

Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
An earlier newsletter today, as the rest of week will involve the visit to Manchester with a late return on Friday. Since June began, it’s unfortunately been rain all the way and it serves as a stark contrast to the glorious sunshine we were enjoying twelve months ago. Let’s hope we see an improvement for outdoor activities such as Sports Day and the Summer Fair later this term.

Daw cylchlythyr cynharach heddiw, gan y bydd gweddill yr wythnos yn cynnwys yr ymweliad â Manceinion gan ddychwelyd yn hwyr ar ddydd Gwener. Ers i fis Mehefin ddechrau, yn anffodus mae glaw wedi bod yn ddi-ddiwedd ac mae’n wahanol iawn i’r heulwen godidog yr oeddem yn ei fwynhau ddeuddeg mis yn ôl. Gobeithio y gwelwn welliant ar gyfer gweithgareddau awyr agored fel y Mabolgampau a’r Ffair Haf nes ymlaen y tymor hwn.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones
Headteacher / Pennaeth

Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
We seemed to have a lot of empty classrooms at different points this week, but when you consider various visits to the Living Classroom, swimming, art workshops, Wonderland activities, PE in the sun and hall practice for Family Service, you soon realise why! Yes, it’s been another busy week but a very enriching one!

Roedd yn ymddangos bod gennym lawer o ystafelloedd dosbarth gwag ar adegau gwahanol yr wythnos hon, ond pan ystyriwch ymweliadau amrywiol â’r Dosbarth BYw, nofio, gweithdai celf, gweithgareddau Wonderland, Addysg Gorfforol yn yr haul ac ymarfer neuadd ar gyfer Gwasanaeth Teulu, byddwch yn sylweddoli pam! Ydy, mae wedi bod yn wythnos brysur arall ond yn un cyfoethog iawn!

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth

May 10th 2019 Mai 10fed

Dear Parents & Carers / Annwyl Rieni a Gwarchodwyr,
This week has seen our Year 2 – 6 pupils taking their National Tests and to be fair to them, they did so with little fuss and hopefully very little stress. I’m sure they all did their best and deserve a pat on the back. With preparations taking place and of course the tests being held themselves, the school has been quieter and uncharacteristically, less has been going on, as the twitter feed will reflect. I’m sure normal service will resume next week!

Yr wythnos hon, mae ein disgyblion Blwyddyn 2 – 6 wedi cymryd eu profion ac fe wnaethant hynny heb stwr ac ychydig iawn o straen gobeithio. Rwy’n siŵr eu bod i gyd wedi gwneud eu gorau ac yn haeddu canmoliaeth. Mae’r ysgol wedi bod yn dawelach oherwydd y profion ac yn annodweddiadol, mae llai wedi bod yn digwydd, fel mae twitter yn adlewyrchu. Rwy’n siŵr y bydd y gwasanaeth arferol yn ailddechrau yr wythnos nesaf!

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Bryn D. Jones, Headteacher / Pennaeth
