Dear Parents / Carers,

The pupils were all dressed in red today, as we raised money for the BHF.  It was also a suitable day, as many were wearing Wales' rugby shirts, in advance of the big game with England tonight.  I'm sure many of you will be in front of the TV later, watching the match.  The bitter cold this week has been offset by the beautiful clear sunshine and there has been lots going on here.  With only a week before half term, we will soon be eagerly looking for signs of spring!

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Roedd y disgyblion wedi eu gwisgo i gyd mewn coch heddiw, wrth i ni godi arian ar gyfer yr BHF. Roedd hefyd yn ddiwrnod addas, gan fod llawer yn gwisgo crysau rygbi Cymru, cyn y gêm fawr â Lloegr heno. Rwy'n siŵr y bydd llawer ohonoch o flaen y teledu nes ymlaen yn gwylio y gêm. Mae'r oerni yr wythnos hon wedi cael ei wrthbwyso gan yr heulwen glir hardd ac mae llawer wedi bod yn digwydd yma. Gyda dim ond wythnos cyn hanner tymor, byddwn cyn bo hir yn edrych yn eiddgar am arwyddion y gwanwyn!

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Internet Safety – Next week is Internet Safety week and Mr. Davis will kick things off on Monday with his assembly.  PC Heledd is also visiting on Tuesday and among many themes, she will talk about this important issue.  Each class will be discussing the merits and dangers of the internet, which I'm sure you will agree is a crucial part of any child's education.  It is important that all children and adults alike, understand and learn how to be responsible users of the internet.

The Word on the Street  - WEAR IT RED DAY Today, people are wearing red for British Heart Foundation and giving £1 donation for wearing red to raise money. The British Heart Foundation started in 1961 to save people's lives from this condition. The British Heart Foundation are handling the UKs' biggest heart killer that has killed lots of people.
