School Blog Thursday 27th April

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have launched our new topic "A Right Royal Rumble" and are busy planning the term's learning with our pupils.  You will soon receive your "Pod Project Overview" so you can see how the staff will develop your child's knowledge, skills and understanding through authentic and fun experiences. 


Unfortunately we have been received extremely negative feedback from Princess Beatrice (Queen Victoria's Daughter) regarding our gardens.  Please watch this video.    We are rather embarrassed as we have just had our platinum green flag award! Each pod has now got an area to develop, and we are hoping that you will help.  If we do a good enough job, maybe the princess will even bring her mother back to see the progress! 


Here are the headlines this week:-


Thank You - Pat and Mrs Williams has asked me to thank all the parents for their kind words and gifts at the end of term.  They will both be missed, but I know they will keep in touch.


Premises Plea - I am always overwhelmed by the support of parents when we ask for help.  It makes such a difference to our environment, and enables us to spend our limited budget on other resources and experiences for the pupils.   As a result, governors have suggested that we put out our needs as a regular feature on this blog.  If you can help with any of the following, please contact me, the office  or your pod staff. This week we need:-

1. Decking planks (New floor for the Pengwin house)

2. Plants, soil, bark chippings (To improve our gardens)

3. Removal of old willow sticks (we are rather over run with sticks and branches that need to make way for summer fun)

4. Good quality toys eg lego, cars, role play etc for Pengwins and Pili Pala

5. Good quality children's books (see below information about a book sale event)


The Big Llanrhidian Bedtime Story Week  9th-13th May 2022 - We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting our very first "Bedtime Story Week".  Throughout the week, all pupils will immerse themselves in a variety of activities linked to our love of reading and imagination. Staff and pupils will all share some of their favourite stories and become their own authors and write their own fairy tales.  On Tuesday 10th May 2022 we will have a Llanrhidian 2nd hand book sale to help raise much-needed funds for our school. We are now collecting any good quality children's storybooks for this sale, if you have any books that you would like to donate to our 2nd hand book sale then please send to school with your child. Books will only be sold on 10th May and all books will be £1.  Please send your child in with £1 so they can attend the sale.  Finally, on Friday 13th of May we will end our exciting Bedtime Story week by having our very own Pyjamarama event. Pupils will be invited to come into school in their pyjamas where they will enjoy some exciting bedtime treats and activities. 


Have a super "extra long" bank holiday weekend,

Mrs Caswell
