Our penultimate week saw Christmas concerts, Carol concerts. Choir performances, Christmas Jumper Day, Chritsmas Dinner Day, The whole school Panto trip, Nursery Open Day, the Techniquest Sensational Science Show, class trips and more! …What a week!

Dosbarth Mesen enjoyed a fantastic trip to Christmas performance on Thursday. Children and staff enjoyed the event and we loved watching our little superstars act out the story of decorating the tree. Da iawn, pawb.

The nursery open day was held this week for prospective parents. Staff put on a range of activities for children and their parents. We would like to thank everyone for joining us and thank the staff for their hard work in putting on another exceptional event.

Dosbarth Bedwen visited Cardiff Museum as part of their Gallery Topic. Children learnt how to print and paint like Andy Warhol. Year 5 enjoyed a tour of the Museum, which is never complete without visiting the Wooly Mammoth! #Brilliantbehavior #Bedwen.

Diolch yn fawr to Miss Davies, Mr Smith and Mrs Evans who put on another Christmassy Carol Service at All Saints Church. We enjoyed rehearsing our songs and performing them for our families in such a beautiful setting. Thank you for coming along and supporting Year 2, 4 & 6. If you wish to help the church raise money for a roof contact Father Kevin.

This week, from Reception to Year 6, visited the Pantomine! We all travelled across to the Barry Memorial Hall for the tale of The Snow Queen – with a Frozen twist! Children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the show and sang along to every song!

We are proud to announce that Barry Island Primary School has been selected to be a Research and Development Hub for NACE. This accolade recognises Barry Island as sector leading in our delivery of More Able and Talented lessons and trips for our children. We are the only Hub in Wales and 1 of 3 in the UK…Wow!

Dosbarth Ceirios enjoyed a fantastic trip to Techniquest this week. Children and staff enjoyed a science-tastic day out and thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and activities they had to offer. We would like to say a HUGE ‘da iawn’ to the children for their excellent behaviour.

This week we opened our school to visitors across South Wales. Headteachers, ICT coordinators and class teachers visited our school to see the ‘excellent ICT’ being delivered at Barry Island Primary.

We have reached the half way point for this term and we have had a lovely time so far! Our children have experienced trips such as; Braeside, Coding at Sony, St Fagans and of course, exploring the beach! Please remember to follow us on twitter and like our page on Facebook.

Dosbarth Onnen and Hywen enjoyed their trip to St Fagans today. They had a wonderful time learning about Welsh heritage and culture. The staff all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we are extremely proud of their excellent behavior! Da iawn, pawb!

Please can parents/carers avoid parking on the double yellow/zig zag lines outside school. It is vital that the area is kept clear to ensure the children are safe. Many thanks for your help in this matter.

The BIPS Halloween Disco was a huge success, once again! We would like to thank the members of the fabulous PTA for all the hard work decorating the hall and supporting on the night. We know our little monsters had a great time!

Please download the Schoop App (FOR FREE) and follow your child’s class by using the code 6618. We encourage you all to keep up to date.

We would like to thank you all for a wonderful first half term. Please enjoy your break and stay safe whilst out and about.

Thanks to all the parents and guardians that attended Parent Consultations. It is a vital aspect of school where teachers have the opportunity to feedback land target set for the year ahead.

Diolch!

The children have really enjoyed learning a range of activities this week. Pupils in the Foundation Phase had a visit from the dental team to have their teeth checked and learn about the importance of brushing teeth. We would like to thank all parents and carers for their continued support. It is always a pleasure to meet and work with the community. We have a very exciting year ahead!
