We made it! Seemed like the longest half term ever but it ended well with a brilliant class assembly from Year 2, well done to all involved.
On Thursday we went as a School to visit St Gwladys primary school in Bargoed. We spent the day there looking at how they have developed maths teaching over the last few years and were able to pick up a lot of tips that we can use in school to further develop maths in Llantilio. It was a very interesting visit which gave us lots of food for thought.
Our Cluster training on Friday involved staff in the literacy and numeracy projects and also the implementation of the Digital Competency Framework and our More Able children.
Back in school the PTFA arranged for a local carpenter to come and fit some shelves in what will become our library area. They look fabulous and I can’t wait for the full vision for the room to become reality. If you know anyone who would like to help run the library, listen to readers or be part of the refurbishment please let me know.
Next half term will also be very busy. We are expecting Estyn to come and revisit the school, probably early next year, so we will be continuing to work hard in literacy and numeracy and other curriculum areas as well as our Christmas activities.
For the next week though it’s time to rest and recharge those batteries! Have a great week.
