20 Jul 2018

Dear Parents
Mrs MacIntosh and I have thoroughly enjoyed having your children in our class this year, they have all been amazing in different ways.
Thank you so much for your generous presents and beautiful cards, we are so very grateful for your kindness.  We shall be sad to see the children leave but I know they will continue to thrive in Class 3.
We had hoped to have copies of the Cookery Challenge Book for the children to take home but unfortunately the books have only been returned today, so there just isn't enough time.  We hope the children enjoyed the experience, and we have all certainly enjoyed hearing about each child's cookery challenge.
I know the children kept a holiday journal last year and if they would like to use the rest of the book to do the same this year, then I would love to look through them on their return.
Have an amazing summer.
All the best
Sharon Quine

Dear Parent
 
 
Year 5 Transition Day – Monday 16th July
All Year 5 children will be attending the Gwernyfed transition day on Monday 16th July.  This is very important for all the year 5 children to attend as their geography work next year in year 6 will be linked to what they will be doing in Gwernyfed on the day.  Children should wear Llangors School uniform and take a packed lunch.  If you have any queries about the day please contact the school.
 
 
Year 6 Shadow Days – Tuesday 17th & Wednesday 18th July
Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th July is the intake day for all the year 6 children who will be going to Gwernyfed in September.  Please remember to take a packed (if not set up for cashless) a notebook, a pencil case and their PE Kit for both days.  Children must wear Primary school uniform or GHS uniform.
 
 
Presentation Evening and BBQ – Thursday 19th July
We hope to see you all at the presentation evening which starts at 6.00pm on Thursday 19th July.  All pupils from Nursery to Y6 will be awarded with an achievement certificate.
The BBQ will follow and is a perfect opportunity to catch up and meet with other parents.  There will be a bar, hotdogs, burgers and music.
 
Uniform Orders
Llangors school uniform orders from ‘School Trends’ will be collated on Friday 20th July.  Items ordered should be received within 14 days of returning back to school and will be sent home with the children. 
Orders from Tesco will be sent directly from Tesco to your chosen delivery address. 
Please can I remind you to label all of your children’s uniform.
 
 
Last Day of term - Friday 20th July
 
We would like to wish all the Y6 children (and any other children who may be leaving us) good luck in their new schools.  We hope you have a lovely summer holiday and look forward to welcoming back all other pupils on Wednesday 5th September 2018.
 
Yours sincerely

Y6 Parent Pay

11 Jul 2018

Dear Year 6 parents

Year 6 pupils balances on ParentPay do not transfer across to the high schools in September. Parents will receive new activation codes from the high schools to activate on their ParentPay logins.

 

Please can we ask you not to add any additional credit to balances because of this. If there is any credit on year 6 balances we will refund this during the summer holidays.

 

Many thanks

School Uniform

06 Jul 2018

Dear Parents
There has been talk of the school changing the colour of the uniform, however you will be pleased to hear that we have decided to stay with jade green.  
We have recently signed up with Tesco uniforms as they offer more competitive prices and a 5%donation to the school.  We have received samples and are happy with the quality but if you do have any feedback please contact the school.
If you have ordered from School Trends this is fine and will still be delivered to the school but from now on could we please ask for you to order from Tesco.
Many thanks

PTA School Fete

28 Jun 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,
 
THE PTA NEED YOUR HELP!!!!
 
Can we please put in an urgent request for donations of prizes for the annual school fete as we seem to have only received one or two items to date? We are sure this has been an oversight, as we know how busy everyone is at this time of year or you are waiting until tomorrow to bring in your generous gifts. BUT we are having a little bit of a panic with only one school day before the end of the week, hence the reminder.
 
The PTA, despite being made of only a handful of members, are working very hard to make this event successful and to raise much needed funds to improve the opportunities for our wonderful young people but we cannot do it alone. 
Please could you donate whatever you can tomorrow?
 
 
Suggested items
 
Bottles of wine/spirits
Bubble bath/fancy soaps/Body lotion
Stationary sets
Toys
Packets of sweets
Packets of biscuits
Cakes
Scented candles
Books
Sets of pens
Fresh fruit/vegetables
Tinned items
 
In fact anything you or your child would like to win on a stall!
 
We are also after any clean/undamaged items of unwanted uniform for the Second Hand Uniform Stall please.
 
We look forward to seeing you Saturday, winning some of the amazing prizes we know will have appeared!
 
Many thanks for your continuing support,
 
Best wishes,
PTA

Dear Parents

 

Sunscreen Protection

As the weather is getting hotter and we are having more and more sunny days, can we please remind you to make sure your child is well protected against the sun whilst at school.  Sun cream should be applied at home before coming to school and a sun hat should be brought in.  Please make sure their name is clearly written inside.  If extra sun cream needs to be applied during the day, please ensure your child can do this themselves.

 

Schoop

Schoop is the schools preferred way of communicating, therefore can we please ask that everyone signs up to Schoop.  How schoop works: - Parents sign up either on their mobile phones, tablet or computer (or all three).  You simply tick the class/classes that your child/children are in and start receiving information about what is happening in that class/classes. 

Newsletters and other information regarding all children in the school will be sent to all classes.

 

School Fete

Don’t forget the School Fete is this Saturday 30th June, 2-4pm, we look forward to all seeing you there! 

 

The PTA have a number of activities scheduled including bouncy castles, cream teas, face paints and tattoos, lucky dip, splat the rat, beat the goalie to name just a few!

 

The PTA are very short on numbers at the moment and would be immensely grateful for any further support from parents on the day of the fete or as part of the PTA generally (no commitment to attend all meetings or attend all events, any contribution much appreciated). Please contact Jess Jones on jesshaynes246@hotmail.com or 07432 647191 with any offers of help. 

 

The PTA would also be most grateful for any cake or plant donations for the stalls, and for any unwanted Llangors School uniform (as outlined in previous Schoop, Hannah Bragg is setting up a second hand uniform shop to raise funds for the school and will have a stand at the fete).

 

Parents Evening

Parent evening is on Tuesday 3rd July, times to follow.  Please get in touch with the school asap if you are unable to attend or would like a specific time.

We would be very grateful if ALL children could be collected from Gwernyfed so that we can avoid paying for another bus.  If this is going to prove impossible for some families, please could you call the school or contact their class teachers to let them know as soon as possible.

Please could you also complete the below slip and return it to the school before next Friday, 15th June.

Royal wedding and News Letter

14 May 2018

Llangors Church in Wales School

Monday 14th May 2018

 

Dear Parents

 

Behaviour at playtimes:

Over the past months we have noticed increasingly rough play out on the yard.  Whilst last year we felt that this was due to the lack of space because of the new school build, it does not seem to have improved since moving to the new school where there is far more space available for play.

Children, especially the younger children, are play fighting, chasing and grabbing one another and tossing each other to the ground.  This is resulting in children getting hurt and becoming upset with the aggression shown.   Children often pretend to wrestle and fight but this kind of play is not at all suitable. 

Whilst we have been dealing with this we feel that we need a change of policy.  For the foreseeable future there will be ‘zero tolerance’ to this type of behaviour and pupils will lose some of their playtime and parents will also be informed.  We will remind pupils before each break about the importance of playing together without the aggressive play which leads to pupils being hurt.

The healthy schools team are also working on ideas for ‘zoning’ the yard into areas for different types of play which hopefully will help resolve this issue. 

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

 

 

Car parking:

I’m sure you’ll agree that the school car park is working really well and is so much easier when dropping off or picking up your children.  Can I just remind you of a few things when using the car park:

  • Park in designated bays if you are bringing your child to the gate or wishing to speak to a member of staff.
  • The drop off point at the front of the school is just for pulling up for your child to exit the car. Please do not leave your car in this area  -  it should be kept clear for the bus etc.
  • There are some parents who need to use the disabled parking spaces -  please try not to park in these areas, especially when other bays are available.
  • Please be aware that the speed for driving in the car park will probably be 5 mph (we are still waiting for signs to be put up). There is always the possibility that a child could run out from behind a parked car.

 

Thanks for your co-operation in this.

 

 

 

 

Theft of bikes:

On Saturday, two youngsters entered the school grounds and moved a lot of equipment around in the Mes Bach Nursery play area, breaking some pots and spoiling plants etc.   They also stole two bikes from outside Class 1.  This was around 7.30p.m. on Saturday evening. 

We have very clear images of them caught on CCTV and these have been forwarded to the police.   If you saw any youngsters around the school or have any information that could be useful we would appreciate you getting in touch with us.

 

School Photographs:

The photographer will be in school on Friday 18th May 2018 for individual and family photographs.   If you wish to have a photograph of your child/children with yourselves, or a younger sibling please be at the school at around 8.30a.m. 

 

PTA Promise Auction  -  Pudding and Wine evening: 

Don't forget the PTA promise auction, pudding and wine evening on Friday 18th May 2018 at 7p.m.    There are lots of great promises to bid for  -   please come along and support the PTA in their sterling efforts to raise much needed funds.  We are very grateful for their hard work and support. 

 

PRE WEDDING PARTY INVITATION:

To celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle we have decided to have a picnic on Thursday afternoon (17.05.2018) at 2p.m.

Please could all pupils bring a plate of picnic food and could they dress up in red / white / blue clothes.    Drinks will be provided by the school for pupils.

Parents , grandparents etc. are also invited.  Come along with your plate of food and join in the party with your child/children.

Vaccine Info

10 May 2018



Urgent - Please read

08 May 2018
Dear Parents
 
As you are aware, children in years 3, 4 and 5 were vaccinated last week due to a child contracting Hepatitis A.  As this child has a sibling in the nursery, (although they haven't been in school for a few weeks)  it has now been decided to vaccinate the whole school, including the nursery.   These are precautionary measures only.   In hindsight it would have been sensible to vaccinate the whole school last week.  However, we are where we are and as per letter attached, the vaccinations will take place on Thursday 10th May 2018.  
 
 
I fully recommend that you take up this offer of vaccination as it will stop any spread that could occur.   The other plus to the vaccination is that is covers your child for at least 25 years, so if they will be travelling to certain countries that require this vaccination in the future they will be covered.  I myself have had the vaccination prior to holidaying in Kenya (and I had to pay for it!!!)
 
It is very important that you sign and return the medical form attached first thing tomorrow morning.  You can accompany your child but sometimes it is easier if a parent is not present.  If you wish to be present then you are welcome to do so.  Last week the pupils were absolutely marvellous  -  we were so proud of them.
 
If you want further information please do not hesitate to contact me at the school tomorrow.
 
Yours sincerely
Lynne Jones
Headteacher

LLANGORS CHURCH IN WALES SCHOOL
2nd May 2018
 
Dear Parents
Attached with this message is a letter from Public Health Wales informing you that a child at the school has been diagnosed with Hepatitis A. All the information you need is in the letter but I just wanted to write and re-assure you that we have been told that it is highly unlikely that the infection originated from the school, as it is mostly associated with travelling abroad, or eating soft fruit that has been imported.
 
As the child is in Class 4, pupils associated with that class, or using the same cloakroom facilities will be offered a vaccination as a precaution. The vaccination will be administered tomorrow, Thursday 3rd May 2018, by Powys nursing professionals and a doctor from Public Health Wales. Although this infection is quite rare, there have been two cases diagnosed recently in Wales, one in Neath and one in North Wales - whether or not there is any connection is yet to be confirmed.
 
I fully recommend that you take up this offer of vaccination as it will stop any spread that could occur. The other plus to the vaccination is that is covers your child for at least 25 years, so if they will be travelling to certain countries that require this vaccination in the future they will be covered. I myself have had the vaccination prior to holidaying in Kenya (and I had to pay for it!!!)
 
It is very important that you sign and return the permission slip attached first thing tomorrow morning. You can accompany your child but sometimes it is easier if a parent is not present. If you wish to be present then you are welcome to do so.
 
I will be in school until around 6.30p.m. this evening. If you would like to contact me please do not hesitate to do so.

Dear all,
 
The PTA are really looking forward to seeing as many pupils as possible at our film club night next Friday 27th April. Paddington Bear 2 will be shown at 6pm in the school hall. Kids are welcome to wear PJ’s/onesies and bring a cushion/beanbag to sit on. 
 
Please note that there have been a few changes to the event that we need to make parents and carers aware of.  Due to the type of licence the school holds parents and older siblings are not able to stay.
 
Pupils will now just need to be dropped at the school at 6pm and picked up at 8pm, there will be sufficient PTA staff and teachers to supervise the evening. There will no longer be a charge to watch the film, there will however be popcorn, ice cream and a drink available for a cost of £3 per pupil. We are sorry but we are only permitted to open this event to Llangors School pupils only. 
 
It looks set to be a really fun evening so we are hoping plenty of pupils will be able to join us.

Dear Parents

Bus Children

Due to safeguarding could you please inform the school as soon as possible of the days in which your child/children will or will not be getting the bus at the end of the school day. 

As you can imagine it gets very complicated when we have many phone calls during the day asking to either take children off or put them on the bus or when the children have been told by their parents what they are doing but the parents have not informed the school (in this case we will keep them in school).

Whilst we do not mind and understand there are circumstances that they need to be either on or off the bus, we need to ensure the safety of the children. Therefore please send a note in with your child to inform the teacher of the days your child is to get on the bus and if this does change, please send a note with your child in the morning or phone the school and leave a message. Thank you.

 

Parent Pay/ Cashless payments

We have had many parents asking if they can pay for fruit, swimming and trips etc. through Parent Pay.  As it stands you can only pay for uniform and school meals with the cashless system, however we will be looking at setting up other cashless payments shortly.  More information to follow.

 

Fruit

We encourage all children to eat fruit as a snack during morning break.   Your child can bring a piece of fruit from home or alternatively you can buy fruit from the school which is the preferred option.

For Infant children (Classes 1, 2 and 3) the cost is £5 per term (April to July).  The children are given half or quarter of an apple.

For junior children (Classes 4, 5, 6 and 7) To help us to keep track of the money we would like you to pay for the whole term in advance.  April to July is 14 weeks at a cost of 70 pence per week the total amount to be paid is £9.80.   The junior children are given a whole piece of fruit.

 

Trips

The Year 5 children are going to Llangrannog tomorrow until Friday with Mr Godfrey and Mrs Barber.  They should arrive back at school before the end of the school day on Friday.  If there are any delays we will send a schoop to inform the parents.

On Monday 23rd –  Friday 27th April the Year 6 children will be off on their residential trip to Kingswood (Mold) with Mr Williams and Mrs Barber.  They will be leaving school at 10.30am and again, they should arrive back at school for the end of the school day on Friday.  A schoop will be sent if they are going to arrive back any later.

I’m sure they will all have a wonderful time.

 

Contact numbers

You may have noticed a different number shown when the school has phoned you at home or on your mobile.  Since moving into the new school we have been notified that there are several phone lines to the school.  The main numbers used are: 685663 and 658900 you can contact the school on either of these.

 

If anyone does have any queries or questions please don’t hesitate to contact the school.

 

Yours sincerely

Four meals are provided each day: breakfast, dinner, tea and supper - with a variety of Healthy Eating menus to suit all tastes. The Centre has been awarded a Food Hygiene Rating of 5 (see http://ratings.food.gov.uk/Welcome.aspx) under the Food Standards Agency’s Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

Hot drinks can be purchased outside of meal times.

CARE
The course/group leader will arrange the course in conjunction with the Centre’s management and specialist activity staff. In addition to the Centre staff, teachers/youth workers/adults accompany parties from schools/youth groups/clubs. The children are closely supervised on all activities, and all equipment is regularly inspected to ensure that it is safe and suitable for use. Arrangements at the Centre have been developed over 80 years to provide a safe and caring environment for children at the Centre, and on activities. We have a Risk Assessment and strict staff guidelines for every aspect of the Centre’s work as well as for any problems that might arise. If you would like to see a copy of these guidelines, please contact us. We ensure that children know what to do in an emergency. There is someone available at all times, day and night. On average there is a staffing ratio of 1 to 6/8. There is a night porter on duty throughout the night. There are also CCTV cameras strategically placed around the Centre. All Centre staff have been scrutinised by the Disclosure and Barring Service (enhanced system). The accommodation blocks and main gate are locked during the night.

SAFETY
We operate our activities to the highest safety standards. Each activity is carefully monitored on a regular basis to ensure safety and suitability. Our Activity Safety Management Systems and Policies have been independently inspected and verified. The Centre has also achieved the bronze standard of the Investors in People award and the Green Dragon level 2 standard.
 
ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESSES
Minor accidents or illnesses will be treated as soon as is possible by our local doctor, dentist or local hospital e.g. stitches for a minor cut, precautionary X Rays, provision of antibiotics for infection etc. Parents will be contacted before treatment is administered should the treatment involve a stay at the hospital or anaesthetic (see Health Certificate). Parents of children who are taken to hospital or the Doctor’s Surgery for any other reason will be contacted immediately the child returns to the Centre. An experienced member of staff will accompany each child when visiting the local doctor, dentist or hospital; should parents wish their child to return home for medical reasons we will normally try to meet parents half way. There is a fully qualified First Aider on duty 24 hours a day.

DISCIPLINE
To ensure the smooth running of the Centre a number of simple sensible rules are obviously necessary. These are made known to children on arrival and our policy is to administer them in a fair and sympathetic spirit. Our aim is to ensure a happy time for all at the Centre.


PROBLEMS
Please ensure that your child will visit the main reception at the Centre should any problems arise so that the matter can be dealt with immediately.

HEALTH CERTIFICATE
It is important that each child brings the HEALTH CERTIFICATE to the Centre with details of any illness or problem that the child may have, and a telephone number should we need to contact the parents or family.

PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
Usually, each group is required to pay a deposit of 25% per head of the cost of the course at least 12 weeks prior to staying at the Centre. The deposit is non-refundable except in exceptional circumstances whereby non attendance due to illness is supported by a medical certificate. Should a child leave the Centre due to medical reasons no refund of the deposit is made but a proportion of the final payment will be refunded on a daily basis.

PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO CLIPS
Photographs and video clips of activities may be shown on our website, advertising materials and occasionally television programmes. If you do not want your child to be included in these pictures please inform us on the Health Certificate.

FIRE DRILL
A fire drill is held on the first evening of each course to ensure that each child knows exactly where the exits are and where to go in emergencies.

INSURANCE
The Urdd has third party public liability insurance for £20 million in case of any negligence in our arrangements. No Personal Insurance is included in the price. Should parents wish insurance for personal accidents, illness, lost property etc., they should make their own arrangements.
 
ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS
Some of the activities can be affected by adverse weather conditions e.g. Motorbikes. The decision to cancel activities is done for safety reasons. Alternative indoor activities will be arranged.

COMPLAINTS
If you have any enquiries regarding the Centre’s arrangements, or any problem arising from your child’s stay at Llangrannog, please contact us immediately.

We look forward to welcoming your child to Llangrannog. Over 20,000 children visit us each year; we are proud of our record for care and safety and are sure that your child will benefit from and enjoy the residential experience. We would be most happy to answer any enquiries you may have.

Yours sincerely

Monday 19th March 2018

Dear Parents,

What bad luck to have snow again on our open day.  It makes me nervous to organise another one!!  We have decided to try an open evening  -  the school will be open on Thursday 12th April 2018 from 4p.m. to 6.30p.m.  Let me know what you think of this idea.

 

Unfortunately we don't have the facilities set up as yet for our Easter concert but we have decided to hold a small 'musical' concert on Thursday 22nd March 2018 at 7p.m. at the school.  This will include musical items and recitations from the recent St David's Day Eisteddfod and also the singing of some Easter hymns etc.   There will be no charge for this concert but the PTA will be selling raffle tickets with lots of Easter eggs as prizes.  We would like all pupils to attend if possible and a warm welcome is extended not only to parents, but grandparents, friends etc.

 

Finally, a big thank you to the PTA for organising a very enjoyable Bingo Evening last Friday (16.03.2018).  There was a good turn out and it proved to be a very entertaining and fun evening which raised nearly £500. We are very grateful to the PTA for their fundraising efforts.  They have just given me a cheque for £5,000 which will be paid into the school budget, ensuring that we can keep our current staff therefore minimising split classes and keeping numbers relatively low in each class.   It is a sad state of affairs that the budget has to be 'propped up' in this way but our priority always has and always will be keeping the 6 teachers we have at present and in the future building back up to 7 (possibly!!!).  So a big thank you to the PTA for supporting us and to you for supporting the PTA.   Look out for another Bingo evening next term, along with other fundraising ideas.

 

I understand that some parents were unsure this morning whether or not the school was open.  If the school is to close, then we would update the Powys website and also schoop out to all parents.  The schoops also appear on our website, so if you don't receive schoops, check the website.  We always endeavour to keep the school open, this is why we leave it until the last possible moment to announce a closure.  Although much of the time I am unable to get to school, many staff can and as long as there is no compromise in terms of the health and safety of all pupils then the school will open.

 

Yours sincerely

Lynne Jones

Eisteddfod

21 Feb 2018

 

St David's Day  -  School Eisteddfod:

We thought you might like to use the two week break to make your craft items for the Eisteddfod on 1st March 2018.  The Eisteddfod will be the first time for pupils to perform on the new stage and we hope that all pupils will take part in the home competition entries to make it a memorable Eisteddfod.    Categories are:

Craft  -  A miniature garden

                A model made out of salt dough then decorated/painted (maximum size A4)

 

Cookery  -  6 welsh cakes on a plate

                     6 homemade biscuits  -  decorated

Obviously the cookery items will be made the week of the Eisteddfod!!!   -  but you can practise in half term.  Pupils are awarded 10 extra points for their house for entering all competitions.  We have taken on board comments from parents who felt that 3 cookery and 3 craft items were too much so this year we have cut it down to 2!!!

2nd February 2018

Dear Parents,

Our last day at the ‘old’ school - we are all feeling a little nostalgic even though we are looking forward to moving to the new school.  We are busy packing up and it really is quite sad.

 

As you are aware, the school will close today for 2 weeks, and re-open after the half-term break on Monday 19th January 2018.  Although this will be our first 'official' day at the new school we would like everyone to come to the 'old' school first thing (you can park at the new school, then walk up to the old school) so that we can walk together down to the new school.    Parents, children, friends, governors can all join in as we want to make it a special occasion.  We are hoping that the B&R photographer will be present as we 'cut' the ribbon at the door of the new school.

The teachers will then take charge of the children and parents and friends are warmly invited to stay for refreshments in the school hall.   This will not be the opportunity for parents to look around the school as our priority will be to orientate the pupils and settle them in.  We will however, be showing you where to meet your children at the end of the day etc. and where the main entrance is.

We will be holding an 'open day' for all to visit and look around the new school and see the classrooms set out with the new furniture etc  -   (date to be confirmed - it will probably be a Sunday  -  very likely to be 4th March  -  this will co-incide with Eisteddfod week and you will be able to view the craft entries which are always amazing).

 

I hope as many people as possible will be able to join us as we walk from the 'old' to the 'new' and we look forward to seeing you there.

 

St David's Day  -  School Eisteddfod:

We thought you might like to use the two week break to make your craft items for the Eisteddfod on 1st March 2018.  The Eisteddfod will be the first time for pupils to perform on the new stage and we hope that all pupils will take part in the home competition entries to make it a memorable Eisteddfod.    Categories are:

Christmas Concerts

13 Dec 2017

Llangors Church in Wales School

Wednesday 13th December 2017

Dear Parents

  Although I really enjoyed the snow (!!!) it has really disrupted rehearsals for our Junior         concert.  We messaged you yesterday to say that there would be no performance this           evening.  We have now decided on the following:

                Thursday             Junior concert 7p.m.      

                Friday                    Junior concert 7p.m.

                Monday               Junior concert 7p.m.      

This is instead of tonight's performance so if you booked tickets for this evening you can use them on Monday.  If this causes a problem please contact the  school so that we can try and accommodate you on either Thursday or Friday evenings.

The Infant Christmas concert has been cancelled but we will be putting on two evening performances during the first week back at school  -  probably the Thursday and Friday.  If you have booked tickets then they can be used on these two nights.

Christingle, parties and Christmas dinner on Wednesday 20th December and the 1st opening of the post box on Tuesday 19th December have not changed.

Junior children will be given times to come back to school tomorrow when we finally decide on make up etc.  As a rule Y6 need to be back around 6p.m. and others between 6 and 6.30p.m.

The concert lasts around 1 hour 20 minutes and we hope to start as near to 7p.m. as we can.   Filming will be on Friday evening  -  we ask that very young children are not present for the filming.

Yours sincerely

100 Club

19 Oct 2017

Dear Parents,

As you are aware, the PTA are trying to organise a '100' club to raise much needed funds for the school.  We were unable to hold a school fete last Summer term and this is a simple but effective way that you can support the school and your children.

 

The PTA are invaluable in raising funds and much of the money raised in the past has gone towards computer equipment, which is not always visible to parents.  We really appreciate the fact that many of our interactive whiteboards, ipads, laptops, computers and notepads are via PTA funds.

 

You may not realise it, but this year the PTA are being asked to contribute to our school budget.  This is the case in many schools now.  Whether you feel this should be so or not, it is a sad fact that this is where we are in terms of funding.  We fight hard to retain our teaching staff, small classes and, for the most part, single year classes and will continue to do so and any contribution to enable us to sustain this is vital.

 

So, once again I ask, please try and support the '100' club   -   it is £6 for a number that will be entered into 6 draws throughout the year.   If you break it down, that is only £1 per half term.   Obviously you can buy as many numbers as you wish.   You can get in touch with Amy Peltor (who is usually at the school gates) or via the school.  You can also send in money with your children to 'buy' a number.  To date, we have sold around 58 numbers but a lot of these have been bought by staff and PTA members.  It would be great if all 100 numbers could be sold or even more.

I do hope you will consider supporting the PTA in this venture.

 

Yours sincerely

Lynne Jones


Trip to Dan-yr-Ogof caves

17 Oct 2017

Dear Parents
We are looking at the book Cave Baby in Class 1 and 2 and learning about how people lived in caves.  The children would love to visit Dan-yr-Ogof caves as part of this project  -  they are very excited about seeing the caves and the dinosaurs!!
We have provisionally booked a day next week but the cost of entry to the caves is £5 per head and the cost of transport works out at £5 per head also, making a total of £10  (the bus quote is £218 ).
 
We will leave school at 9.15a.m. and spend most of the day at the caves  -  having a picnic lunch etc.  We will return around 2.30p.m.
Before I make a firm booking please could you let me know whether or not you would be willing to pay the £10 contribution towards the trip.  
Yours sincerely
Lynne Jones

Collecting Acorns for school - Acorn Antics

10 Oct 2017
Dear parents
 
Please see the information below.  This is a great opportunity to get the children outside and enjoy going for a walk.  
All acorns will be collected in school then sent off to the Forestry Commission.
 
Acorn Antics 2017
 
Natural Resources Wales is inviting education groups from across Wales to collect acorns and connect with and learn about the fantastic natural environment right on their doorstep.
 
As many of our native tree species, like oak, have been affected by harmful pests and diseases over recent years the Acorn Antics campaign will ensure that young oak saplings planted on the Welsh Government estate in the future will be better suited to local conditions and have a better growth rate and resistance to disease.
 
NRW will pay education groups £4.10 a kilogram for oak acorns.  Once collected, the acorns will be sent to the Forestry Commission nursery in Cheshire to be grown onto to saplings.  They will return to Wales to be planted in woodlands and forests close to where the they were picked as acorns.

Year 1 letter 15.9.17

15 Sep 2017

Dear Parents
Reading Folders:  Please could all folders be returned on a Monday, I have had one or two not returned this week. Thank you.
Dinner Money:  Just a reminder on behalf of Mrs Davies who collects the dinner money, please could money be paid each week so that her books can be kept up to date. 
When I grow up: Next week I will be talking to the children about what they would like to do when they grow up, e.g. a gymnast, a soldier, teacher etc.  It would be very helpful to your child if you could have a little chat to them over the weekend.  This is always a fascinating conversation as a parent!
Spellings: Some of the children have spellings to learn for next Friday.  I will gradually introduce these to most of the children over the next few weeks.  Having done this with my own children, I found that practicing every morning for 5/10 minutes and every night really helped them to learn these words.  There will be a test on Friday.  If the children get all the words correct they are given one star and if they can write the sentence correctly also, then two stars.  Please encourage the children to start all sentences with a capital letter and to end with a full-stop. 
Journey to school: The children will also be asked next week to draw a map showing their journey from home to school.  We will be discussing geographical and man-made features on this journey.  Please could you encourage the children to think about their journey and the sorts of things they see on the way, e.g. fields, houses, village, postbox, roundabouts, traffic lights, shops, garages, rivers, lakes etc.
Thank you very much.  Have a lovely weekend.

Welcome to Year 1

05 Sep 2017

Dear Year 1 Parents
Autumn Term Letter
It has been lovely to meet my new pupils today.  I have enjoyed looking through the Holiday Scrapbooks and the children have clearly had a very exciting time with their families.
At the end of term I informed you that I had been summoned for Jury Duty.  At any time during the next two weeks I could be called into Court, but until that time I will be here in school.
Reading Folders:
Please could all reading folders come into school on a Monday morning and they will be returned home before the end of the week. 
Spellings:
Over the next couple of weeks, the children will start to bring spellings home to learn.  There will be a test on these spellings on a Friday.
Topic:
The topic this term is Homes. Please could the children bring in a photograph of their own house as we will be talking about the different types of homes, e.g. semi-detached, cottage, flats etc and the children will be painting a picture.
Bus:
If your child travels home on the school bus, please could you send in a note tomorrow outlining which days they do so.
PE Kit:
Please could the children bring in a PE bag with a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Please could all items of clothing be named.  If the bags could stay in school until half term, then they can be returned to be washed.
Postcards:
The children will be writing postcards from an imaginary holiday and if anyone has any postcards for us to look at, please could you bring them in tomorrow. Thank you.
Dine with Ms Quine:
During the term, I will be having lunch with a few of the children each week.  This is always a really sociable and fun time for us all. 
Please feel free to contact me at school if you have any queries.
Many thanks and kind regards
Sharon Quine
