Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you for sending your children to school with protective clothes, sun cream and plenty of liquids.  It really has been exceptionally hot this week.  We may have some stormy weather on the weekend but it’s looking warm again next week.

Thank you to all who supported the PTA Children’s Book Sale.  It was very popular – especially the ice pops! – and £214 was raised.  Thanks to the PTA for organising this. 

Cycling Safety

5T have been taking part in their Cycling Proficiency training this week and have done very well.  Just a reminder that all pupils who cycle to/from school need to wear a helmet at all times when cycling, even in the hot weather.  Thank you.


School Dinners on Sports Day

The Reception to Year 2 Sports Day is next Friday, 23rd June.  When ordering lunch for that day PLEASE can parents/carers choose the Grab Bag option only.  This is because the timings of Sports Day do not allow for a staggered lunch time, so all the children will be eating together.  Thank you.


Well done!

  • Some of our cricketers took part in a cricket festival at St Fagan’s Cricket Club and won all four of their matches, with some outstanding play in all aspects of the game by pupils.  Well done Lakeside cricketers!
  • The Pupil Leadership Team judged the Three Before Me competition this week and awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes to the winner and runners-up. 
  • Year 5 pupils who attended Mrs Harries’s Young Lifesavers sessions received their certificates for completing the course.  Well done to all.
  • Good luck to the Lakeside Football players in tomorrow’s Lions Tournament!

RSE lessons

RSE (Relationships and Sexuality Education) lessons will be taking place this half term.  The guidelines, content and resources for these lessons will be shared with parents next week so that you can see what the children will be learning about.


Korfball – Wales team

A reminder that Mrs Evans (Year 1 teacher) is representing Wales in the Tri-nations Korfball Tournament at Cardiff City House of Sport (Cardiff City Stadium, Clos Parc Morgannwg, Cardiff CF11 8AW) on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June.  Entry is free.  The Senior Wales squad, in which Mrs Evans plays, are playing on Saturday 17th at 10.45am and 1.15pm (40-minute games) and on Sunday at 1.30pm and 4.10pm.  There are matches throughout both days between 9.30 and 5pm.  Pob lwc Mrs Evans and the team!


Wishing you all a pleasant weekend,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
