Nursery and Reception online 'Clwb Clyd'

Clwb Clyd translates as 'Cosy Club'. In our Cosy Club staff from the Nursery and Reception classes will be sharing a video of us taking part in either a storytelling session, a singing session, or a number/ nursery rhyme session during school closure. We are hoping that this is a positive way for your child to still feel connected to our school, and we hope that it offers some comfort and routine for your child by seeing/ hearing thier teacher during the week. 

We will be uploading videos onto the Plascrug YouTube Channel as often as we can. We will try our best to upload a new video every day (between Monday and Friday during term time) but please bare with us if this is not possible.

Please find us by seraching for Plascrug School on Youtube, by following our Twitter Page @plascrugderbyn.
