Dear Parents/Carers,


We send good wishes to all who celebrated Chinese New Year this week. Several children wore wonderful outfits to school as part of their celebration, and we hope you all had a great time. Thank you also to all who joined in our NSPCC Number Day fundraiser today. There were some ingenious costumes again this year and so far we have raised £319 - and still counting - for this good cause. Again, it was a pleasure to see the children enjoying this whole-school event as one big family.


Year 5 Cycling

We are delighted to say that all Year 5 pupils who participated in Cycling Proficiency Training passed Level One. The general feeling among pupils is that is was fun (especially as they were cycling with friends), great to learn new skills and has given them the confidence now to cycle on the road.


We are aware that some Year 5 pupils missed their training due to illness during the past two weeks. We have asked the Cycle Proficiency Team what options might be available later in the year for pupils to catch up. We will share information with you about this as soon as we receive it.


Safer Internet Day Tuesday 8th February

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. On Tuesday 8th February, South Wales Police Cybercrime officers will visit school to present assemblies to each year group in KS2, there will be activities around Safer Internet throughout the week, and there are competitions for the pupils to enter. Here’s a link to guidance and information for parents


Have a good weekend.


Best wishes,


Rachel Mitchell
