Congratulations to our half termly Early Bird prize winners. They were Zayd Jethwa (RH) and Lily-Jane Morrison (Cl 4/5B) who each win a £5.00 gift card!
Our current level of attendance is 92.8 % but since our target is 94% for the year, it is very important that children are in school on time and regularly. Please continue to help us support your child with this.
This week is Book Week and children will be doing lots of book related activities.
Visit to the Mayor
On Wednesday, children in the School Council and Eco Team will be joining Mrs Couch and Mrs Davies on a visit to meet the Mayor, Councillor Fouweather, at the Civic Centre.
They will visit the Council Chamber, where they will ask the Mayor some questions, and then will join him in the Mayor’s Parlour for refreshments.
All clubs are running as normal, with the exception of Craft which has now finished.
Mrs Parkinson will be seeting up a Mindfulness Colouring Club soon and further details of this will go out to Key Stage Two pupils later in the week.
If any parents would like to help run a club, or an after-school Library session for approximately half an hour, please let either Mrs Couch or I know.
Even if we could have a rota of parents to help with the Library, that would be a great help.
The National Tests in Reading and Numeracy take place from Wednesday May 2nd until Wednesday May 9th, with two days afterwards for catching up.
No holidays will be authorised from the start of the summer term until after the testing period has been completed.
Always do everything you can to arrange dentist, optician and non-urgent doctors’ appointments after school so that children do not miss lesson time.
If you would like further information on the tests, please visit the following website.
Please pay any money outstanding as soon as possible and by Friday of this week at the latest. Money owing is not due to the school but to Chartwell’s Catering and they will pursue money owing though their channels so it is important that all debts are cleared or arrangements are made to begin payment as soon as possible.
Tate Modern Exhibition
I mentioned in my last newsletter about the our school being one of only 32 out of 538 schools across Wales who took part in the the Lead Creative Schools’ projects to have been chosen to have their project on show in the Tate Modern from 24th-29th April and this is exciting news.
Both the Hungry Heroes and Football Fever projects are featured. We are looking into accessing Arts Council for Wales funding to take a coach to see this so I will let parents whose children were involved in these projects know more when I can.
There is a rollover this week.
We have some spare numbers if you would like to support the school with this competition. Those taking part pay £1.00 to the office every Monday and then all money taken that week is split so that half goes to school fund and the remainder is given as a prize for the Bonus Ball in the Lotto draw on a Saturday night. The money raised by the school in this way is really helpful because it goes towards the cost of the many extras that we provide when we can afford to.
