Hats and water bottles

Can you please supply your children with water bottles, hats and sun cream throughout the coming weeks?


Food Bank

The last collection for our food bank is on 18th of July. Can all donations please be brought to school by this date?


Dinner Money Reminder

All dinner money for Foundation Phase children needs to be placed in a labelled envelope containing the correct money, and posted into the lunch money post box, which is situated opposite the main office. Also, we would like to remind parents that snacks cost 30 pence a day. This also needs to be in a labelled envelope, and given to the class teacher.

 

School Fete

Unfortunately, we will have to postpone our Summer Fete this year, due to our Y6 transition project. The provisional new date will be Monday 17th July; this will be confirmed as soon as possible. We still need bric-a-brac, toys and items for the tombola please. If you can help, please bring items to the school reception. If there are any parents who can lend a hand setting up or helping on any stalls, can you please contact the school. Thank you.


Welsh Phrase of the Fortnight

We continue to encourage everyone to use Welsh throughout the week. We are trying to use simple familiar phrases to help develop our speaking skills. Please encourage your child to speak Welsh as much as they can out of school.

Our Welsh phrase of the fortnight for this coming week will be: Pwy sy’n barod – who is ready?
