16th April 2020

Dear Parents & Pupils Welcome back after the Easter break. I hope that despite the social distancing restrictions, you made the most of the lovely weather. I also hope that you are all keeping safe and well and that as a family you managed some work, rest and play!

As we continue in these unprecedented times our distance learning will carry on for the summer term until we receive further notification. As a school, it is important that we check our pupils’ well-being and to have the assurance that they are keeping well and coping during these challenging times. Foundation Phase pupils can comment on J2Homework and Key Stage 2 pupils can access Speakr. Please encourage your child/ren to regularly keep in touch with us. Thank you!

A big thank you to all the children who completed the tasks and activities last term – well done! It is always good practice to establish a structure and routines during these times. Therefore, as from Monday 20th April staff will restart setting work every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on J2Homework and Google Classroom for Years 5 & 6. This term the daily/weekly activities will remain eg spelling, handwriting, sumdog etc but there will be a greater focus on project/research work. Keep an eye on the school website as there will be lots of interesting resources uploaded on a regular basis. Whenever possible we will also be encouraging siblings to work more together on various topics, hopefully this will make things a little easier for parents! Your child’s class teacher will write to you with further details.

As school staff, we are also learning to adapt quickly by keeping in touch in a very different way. This week we met ‘virtually’ and during our meeting we could hear the chickens clucking away in the background. Noisy chickens are happy chickens and they are laying lots of eggs!

If you are still having problems with accessing your hwb account, please e-mail Mrs Pope our ICT Co-ordinator on and she will be more than happy to help you. You can also contact us on if you have any questions, worries or concerns and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Captain Tom Moore the 99 year old WW2 veteran commented on the news this week – he said to those finding it difficult, ‘The sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away’ - reassuring words of wisdom from the voice of experience! Let’s hope that it will happen very soon.

In the meantime, please keep safe, strong, focussed and resilient!

A group of ten students from Old Road School were chosen to take part in the project, which was scheduled over four Tuesday mornings in January and early February 2015.

Me and my town focussed on exploring different aspects of identity and relation to Llanelli town through a series of linked workshops experimenting with a range of arts techniques and processes.
