Wow, another busy week at Barry Island Primary School. The children have really settled over recent weeks. Dosbarth Celyn and Derw have continued swimming with fantastic attitudes. We have received so many compliments from staff at Barry Leisure Centre. Well done all! We would also like to thank all the instructors at the leisure centre. Diolch!
The children have been highly motivated this week, especially developing confident digital skills during our ‘Digital Learning Week.’ They have learnt some great programming and coding skills, whilst understanding the importance of eSaftey and keeping safe when using technology.
We would like to thank Mrs Evans and the teaching team for their hard work organising a ‘Professional Learning’ event witha focus on National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE).On Wednesday, we had visits from over 15 regional schools to view and discuss teaching strategies. We had wonderful feedback. The visitors were extremely impressed with the pupils’ skills and attitudes to learning. We are really proud!
Reading is the “Key to Success.’ Please encourage your child to read every evening. It will really help them access the curriculum!
IMPORTANT REMINDER:Please make every effort to ensure your child attends school every day. It is so important that attendance and punctuality is consistent in order for your child to make good progress. As a school, we want to make sure all of our learners are happy and able to achieve their full potential. Every day really does count! Diolch.
