Earth Day – 11th July

We recently had an energy week where the children had lessons and assemblies linked to saving energy. From this the children have become very passionate about saving energy within school, this includes ensuring lights are switched off when we leave the classrooms, turning whiteboards off and putting laptops into sleep mode. The children also decided they would like to hold an ‘Earth day’ so we spent today using as little or no gas and electricity as possible. We took meter readings last Wednesday and we have done the same today, so we can compare the amount of gas and electricity used on both days. These results will then be used to help us think of new ways to save energy as a school.

Class photographs: Reminder

Can we please remind all parents that those who wish to purchase class photographs through school should return all orders by 12pm on Thursday 12th July. Alternatively, please feel free to order photographs online using the password provided in your pack.

Rhydri Art Day Showcase: Friday 13th July (Rainbow & Bronze) and Monday 16th July (Silver & Gold)

Our Art Day was a huge success and parents/carers of children in the Foundation Phase will be invited into school on Friday 13th July at 9:15am to view and purchase their children’s artwork and the artwork for children in Gold and Silver class will be showcased on Monday 16th July straight after school.  The funds raised will be used to replenish art resources across the school.

Foundation Phase Open Morning – Carnival of the Animals: Friday 13th July

Mrs Gettings and Mrs Hayhoe would like to invite the parents of both Rainbow and Bronze class to meet on the yard at 9:15 on Friday 13th July. The Foundation phase topic this term has been ‘Carnival of the Animals’ and the children would like to show you what they have been doing by performing to you and showcasing their work.

The children will be creating some savannah sunset paintings that will be framed for the parents to purchase if they wish. The cost of these will be £5, which covers the cost of the materials and frames and then any profits made will be spent on enhancing the outside areas.

We feel that this would be a lovely way to finish the year and the perfect opportunity for us all to get together.

We look forward to seeing you there!
