Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you to all of you who came to the wonderful PTA Summer Fayre last Friday.  There was a wonderful atmosphere and the weather was perfect.  I’m delighted to be able to share that the Fayre raised a phenomenal £2088!!!  Thank you to all who helped, and in particular the PTA, for all their hard work.  What an excellent result! 

We’ve had a wonderful week, starting with Transition Day on Monday which was followed by the Foundation Orchestra in Concert in the evening, which featured some of Lakeside’s talented instrumentalists.  Reception held Play & Stay sessions and the Year 6 Leavers’ Party took place on Thursday evening.  As I write, Year 5 are still on their trip to Oakwood Park – all reports are that they are having a good time in spite of the rain.


Children are bringing reports home this week.  We are immensely proud of everybody’s progress and achievements this year.  Well done to all of our children!


Universal Free School Meals

From September, Year 3 children will receive Universal Free School Meals, as well as Years 2, 1 and Reception.  From 20th November, Year 4 children will also start to receive free school meals under the scheme.  Please remember that you still need to order your child’s meals on ParentPay.  Thank you.


Remaining Lost property

We have a huge number of lost property items with no names on them.  They will be on display outside the main gates next Thursday, 20th July (weather permitting!).  If you are missing anything please come and take a look.  Any remaining lost property at the end of next week will be donated either to the PTA or charity.  Thank you.


PTA video

Pupils from Years 5, 4 and 1 took part in a video looking at what the PTA has paid for this year and what they are raising money for going forward.  We hope that you enjoy it.  You can view it here: (or on the school website: Children > Lakeside videos > PTA)


Lakeside’s Got Talent – Thursday 20th July

Thursday morning will see the welcome return of Lakeside’s Got Talent in which children who have gone through heats in their year groups perform on stage in the final.  This is a fun competition for those who compete and especially for those who watch, and we’re all looking forward to it.


Theatre shows

Please see the attachment which is a poster for performances by the Stardust Youth Theatre, featuring some Lakeside pupils.


£5 Cinema Tickets

We received an email from the Odeon Cinema, Cardiff Bay, asking us to let you know that all standard tickets for all films are now just £5 if booked online (this includes the booking fee).  Tickets purchased in the cinema are £6.50.  The flyer is attached.


Wishing you all a pleasant weekend,

Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
