This week…

Year 5 and 6 children had a fantastic opportunity to work collaboratively during a “tech” workshop. The children taught each other how to design and create their own apps, explore new software J2E, and complete computer coding and physical coding activities. The children were able to up skill each other using technology to promote 21st century learning. Great job Dosbarth Bedwen a Dosbarth Derw.

Our Eco Leaders attended the National Eco Committee Conference in Swansea yesterday and worked collaboratively with our new partners on issues such as reducing food waste, carbon footprints and deforestation.  Check out our latest Eco blog for more details about this exciting event.


Barry Island Primary netball team took part in a netball tournament at Cadoxton Primary School. They managed to win and scored 11 points in one game! Mrs Martyn was very proud of the team’s performance.

Dosbarth Onnen had a fantastic timesharing their learning with their families during their Show and See. Parents got to view snapshots of some of the learning and achievements. Thanks to all who came, we hope you enjoyed it as much as the Dosbarth Onnen did!
