Dear Parents/Carers,

 

At 8.30am this morning many of our Year 6 pupils boarded a coach bound for Morfa Bay. This is the first residential visit since before the pandemic. The children were very excited and looking forward to their weekend away and there was a lovely atmosphere of celebration as they were waved off by their parents and carers. We wish them a wonderful, fun-filled weekend.

 

New parent-governor

I’m delighted to welcome Dr Claudia Bennett onto the board of governors as our new parent-governor. Dr Bennett has children in Reception and Year 2. We look forward to seeing her at governor meetings going forward.

 

Cakes and treats brought in to school for sharing

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate birthday/celebration cakes, sweets, chocolates and other treats that children bring into school to share with classmates. This is due to problems with allergies and intolerances among children and staff. Thank you for your co-operation.

 

May 16th-20th – Walk to School Week

Living Streets is a charity whose mission statement is to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk more. Next week, school pupils all over the country are challenged to walk to school every day, even if this means parents/carers driving them to school, parking just a bit further away than normal and walking the rest of the way (Park & Stride): better for health; better for the environment. At Lakeside we already follow the Walk Once a Week (WOW) scheme and next week we are making an even bigger effort to walk or Park & Stride to school every day.

 

Trips & Visits

On Wednesday this week, Year 3 were scheduled to visit Porthkerry Park. You may remember the weather on Wednesday – it was very wet! So, a quick reorganisation took place and the year group enjoyed a great visit to the National Museum in Cardiff instead. Thank you to the Museum for accommodating us at short notice.

 

PTA Jubilee trail

The PTA is inviting families to set up anything with a royal connection in their garden: queens, kings, tea parties, Buckingham Palace... for display from Sunday 29th to Wednesday 8th June. To take part, please message lakesideprimarycardiffpta@gmail.com by 18th May. Thank you.

 

Jubilee Red, White and Blue Day – Friday 27th May

On this day, we will be inviting pupils and staff to wear red, white or blue (or all three) to school in order to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. There will be fun activities throughout the day to mark the occasion, including Jubilee plate-making workshops and music from 70 years ago.

 

Best wishes,

 

Rachel Mitchell

Headteacher
