We have been making the most of the wonderful weather this week! Please remember to follow us on @Llanrhidianp on Twitter to keep up to date with your pod antics.
With only 4 weeks to go, staff are busy preparing for an exciting end of term. Thank you to all those who have attended parents' consultations. We have had great difficulty fitting everyone in on the phone (having only 2 phone lines) so if we are in the same restricted position in the Autumn Term, we will need to ask for these to be on Teams. This is a great way to hold meetings, and really is as simple as logging in to your child's hwb page and clicking a link. Please embrace this technology - because it really is the way forward. Here are this week's headlines:-
1. Sports Day (Week of 28th June) - Last year we had to have a virtual sports day. Well, this year the pupils can have their own sports day in their contact bubbles. A dedicated video channel will be set up on our website for you to view the events. Your Pod staff will let you know what your child will need. Here are the days allocated to each Pod:-
Monday 28th June - Pod Pili Pala
Tuesday 29th June - Pod Pengwin (am) & Pod Pysgodyn (pm)
Wednesday 30th June - Pod PryCop Coch (am)
Thursday 1st July Melyn (am)
If there is bad weather - we will amend days and pod staff will email you. Please send pupils in house colours and trainers on these days. Sport's Day T-Shirts are available from the office. Please email if you need to know what colour house your child is in. Please note that any t-shirt in that colour can be worn.
2. Summer Raffle - We are now collecting prizes for the summer raffle. Each class will raffle a class hamper, and we need your donations to make this a success. As you know we are unable to raise funds through a summer fayre, so this raffle will support the school to further develop its environment to support pupil well-being. Please send in any of the following items by July 2nd. We will need to leave all items for 48 hours before creating the hampers. We will be sending raffle tickets home next week draw the raffle on July 9th. Examples of donations:- Bottles (wrapped for safety), Sweets, Toiletries, Summer themed gifts!
3. End of Year Reports - Teachers are currently completing the pupils' individual reports which will be available at the end of term by logging in to your child's HWB account. These reports will have show progress against previously set targets. Your child's new teachers will be aware of your child's learning and next step so that we can "hit the road running" in September. But please encourage learning through the holidays where possible, especially reading and tables practice. Our online programmes will be available right through the holidays. (Perfect for rainy days).
4. North Gower Food Hub - This food bank has been set up for those in financial difficulties living within the North Gower area, (no vouchers needed). It is registered with the Swansea Council food banks and is available to anybody who needs it.
