 MAIN ENTRANCE – YEAR 3 TRANSFORMATION:   All parents/carers should have received a link (below) so that you can see how Blwyddyn 3 have transformed the main entrance to our school. You don’t need a Twitter account to view the video but if you do have one, the pupils would love it if you could like and retweet their video so that their important message about reusing plastics and looking after the environment can be spread far and wide! 


Blwyddyn 3 would also like to say DIOLCH YN FAWR IAWN to everyone that has sent in their used bottle tops and milk cartons and a big thank you to the PTA for donating some money for the plants, paint and compost. 🌿
