Dear Parents/Carers,


The most important bit of news we have this week is that Mrs Evans (Year 1 teacher) has had a baby girl!  Both mum and baby are doing well and we’re sure that you will join us in sending huge congratulations and warm wishes to Mrs Evans, her husband and their new addition.


It’s been lovely to see some real summer weather this week – thank you for sending your children to school with sunscreen, hats and sunglasses.  Please remember to ensure that your child has a water bottle with them, which can be refilled in school.


We’re delighted to report that the Year 5 and Year 6 pupils who went on the residential visit to Abernant have had a wonderful time, and we look forward to welcoming them back later today.  Those who stayed at school enjoyed lots of off-timetable activities, including a visit to Roath Park, a Dance and Anatomy of Movement workshop at Cardiff Met, arts and crafts and sports such as football, tennis and cricket.


A busy week to look forward to next week with two trips (Year 1 and Year 2), the arrival of the Book Fair and a netball match against Lisvane Primary – let’s hope that the weather stays pleasant for the trips and netball match!


Book Fair: Friday 17th May to Tuesday 21st May

Next week, the Book Fair arrives in school.  Pupils and parents/carers can visit to purchase books on Friday 17th, Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st of May between 3.15 and 4.15pm.  Card purchases only for the Book Sale.
