All around us there are signs that summer is approaching. The trees are finally turning green, the weather is gradually warming up and children are coming to school in summer uniform. After the past two years, it’s heart-warming to be able to enjoy these simple, normal pleasures.
Mental Health Awareness Week Monday 9th to Sunday 15th May
This year MIND’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is loneliness. A story video (Be Kind by Pat Zietlow Miller), read by Year 1 teacher Miss Crompton, will be on the website from Monday for families to share.
Trips & Visits
Last week, Reception pupils visited Barry Island as part of their Who Lives Under a Rock Pool? Context. This week Year 3 were visited by some wonderful Birds of Prey and they are going on a visit to Porthkerry Park next week. Next Friday will see Year 6 heading off on the first residential trip from school for over two years, when they visit Morfa Bay for the weekend.
News from the PTA
Throughout lockdown we established ourselves as a trailblazer in trails. Having had a break from this for a while, we felt a Jubilee Trail would be a fun community and inclusive way to celebrate the Jubilee. So, we are inviting families to set up anything with a royal connection in their garden - think kings and queens, British tea party, rule Britannia. Go for it!
If you’d like to take part, please message email@example.com and be ready to display from Sunday 29th May (giving you a Fri/Sat to get set up) to Wednesday 8th June when the kids go back to school. Please email us by 18th May to give us time to set up and share the trail.
How’s the growing going? Forecast is looking good so far, so all set for Friday May 13th for the sale - drop in the morning, and buy in the afternoon at pick up. Bring all your friends and family to buy some plants!
We’re delighted to share that we have been in touch with the V21 garden nursery at the Heath. They employ people with all sorts of challenges and disabilities and would be thrilled to take anything we don’t sell, as a donation, so nothing will go to waste. Find out more and treat yourself to a little something here https://www.v21.org.uk/v21-enterprises/v21-garden-nursery-heath/ (their hanging baskets are award winning!)
