SUN CREAM

Please can I remind Parent/Carers to put sun cream on pupils before sending them to school!  Please ensure your child brings a bottle of water every day and wears a hat as necessary. Water is available for children during the school day although water bottles help with top ups and health and safety!  Parents should apply sun protection cream to exposed body parts. Although it is not possible to allow pupils to bring such creams to school, there are now products on the market which give protection for the whole of the school day. The school will also encourage the children to sit in the shade out of direct sunlight for part of the lunch break.

 

ONLINE ASSESSMENTS

All maths procedural assessments have now been completed for all children in Year 2 to Year 6. You can login to your child’s Hwb account to read the feedback from the test. A letter regarding these tests and how to find your child’s login was sent home last week. If you do not know your child login go to hwb.abercarnprimary.com and complete the online form.
