Dear Parents and Carers,
Our learning is well underway this term, and the pupils are loving our new topic. Thank you all so much for your support as we again face challenges with Covid19.
This term we are saying thank you and goodbye to Mrs Austin who has left us to start a new job. I am sure you will join me in thanking her for her hard work, and in particular setting up our reading band scheme that is so popular with the pupils. Here are the week's headlines:
1. Whole School Topic "May The Force Be With You! - You will soon be receiving a Pod Project Overview (PPO) which will show you some of the topic based learning for the term. The purpose of the PPO is to demonstrate the authentic and fun context in which we engage our learners. This is in line with the new Curriculum for Wales which will be statutory from September 2022. If you can compliment the topic with any skills or ideas, please let your staff know.
2. Uniform - If you need new uniform you can now order direct from the supplier, Bergoni. For more information, visit our school uniform webpage. Although we expect to see the pupils in school uniform every day, please layer the children up as the weather gets colder. We have to maintain a flow of ventilation at all times, and this does mean the school will be cooler than usual. As always, if you have any good quality uniform, please send in so we can re-cycle. Like wise please ask in the office if we have any suitable sized free uniform for your child. It is far better for the planet if we can re-circulate uniform.
3. Sickness - Can we remind parents that if a child has sickness and/or diarrhoea they must be off school for 48 hours.
4. Harvest Wednesday 29th September - It’s hard to believe that Harvest is just around the corner and this year we will be celebrating with a selection of fun activities, inside and out, throughout the day. To make it even more fun, we are offering the option to dress up as farmers (flat caps, checked shirts, wellies etc) for the day. This is optional! As is tradition, we will also be collecting non-perishable food items, toiletries, and warm clothing items (hats, gloves, socks, etc) to send to our good friends at Matthew’s House on the day.
Have a super weekend everyone.
