Recently the school has sent home attendance letters with all children. The existing figures are very high with the overall figure for the academic year at 97.04% and the figure for the Spring Term at 98.07% – this is wonderful! The school would like to thank parents for their support in achieving this.
Children in years 5 and 6 will be starting a three-week swimming block on Monday 3rd June. The sessions will take place at 9:30am each day so we ask that all children are in school prompt in the mornings in order to take the bus to Bedwas Swimming Pool. Please ensure that all children bring a bag with swimwear, a towel and goggles (if possible).
Elected members of the council have recently agreed an increase in the price of primary school meals. The school would like to remind parents/ carers that the cost is now £2.10. Please can all dinner money be sent into school on a Monday morning for the week ahead. All money should be in a clearly labelled envelope with your child’s name and amount.
Children in Foundation Phase are beginning a topic linked to sea life and beaches. The staff would be very grateful for any donations of items that could enhance the classroom role-play areas e.g. sunhats, special shells, buckets and spades. We thank you in anticipation of your support with this.
Rainbow and Bronze class children will be making sea life-themed dioramas as part of their topic. The class teachers would be very grateful for any donations of cereal or shoe boxes to help with this project.
Children will be very pleased to hear that Freezey Fridays are back! Weather permitting, the PTA will be kindly offering children the chance to purchase ice lollies for 50p after school every Friday. These will be available on the main school yard.
As we head into the summer months, parents/ carers are asked to ensure that children bring a hat and a water bottle into school. On days where the forecast is particularly sunny, please apply sun cream before the start of the day.
