Public Health Update

As a school we have received further information from Welsh Government regarding Coronavirus (2019-nCov). Given the evolving situation, Directors of Education have been asked to advise schools to regularly check the Public Health Wales website for the latest advice.
There is a FAQ section on the website which you may want to peruse. We will keep you informed of any information as required.
The relevant link is: https://phw.nhs.wales/topics/novel-coronavirus/

Information from Public Health Wales

The school nursing team have provided the following information for schools after receiving a number of calls with concerns about the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. Public Health Wales are monitoring the situation and reassure the public that usual hygiene practices for slowing the spread of any germs are to carry tissues, and use them to catch coughs or sneezes.  The tissue should then be put in the bin, and to kill the germs, wash hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.

Newyddion Criw Cymraeg

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda. Our ‘Gair Yr Wythnos’ – ‘Word of the Week’ is Ble mae…? (Where is…?) This month we will also be practising Ionawr (January). There is now a Criw Cymraeg page on the school website in the Pupils section. We have put a picture of three Apps we are using at school. Amie and Evan our Blwyddyn 6 Criw Cymraeg pupils have reviewed the Apps and here is their low-down on them: Cyw Tiwb – on this app you can watch Welsh programmes from Cyw, S4Cs service for young children. We think the programmes suit age 0-6 years. Programmes include Bing, Fireman Sam, Thomas and Friends and Paw Patrol. Cyfri gyda Cyw – on this app you can practise how to count to 10 in Welsh and read and write numbers and play counting games. We think it’s suitable for age 4+ years. Brawddegau Ail Iaith – this is an app for Junior aged children. You need to click on words in the correct order to make a sentence. You win points for beating the timer and for making correct sentences. We hope you might consider putting these Apps on your devices at home so you can have as much fun using them as we are having at school. Diolch.
