Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you for joining in our World Bee Day celebration.  The school was a ‘hive’ of colourful activity and there was a real ‘buzz’ throughout the day!  Thank you as well to some of our governors who joined in with the fun and did some bee-friendly planting in the Half Acre Wood garden.


Class Photo Day: Monday

Colorfoto will take photos of your child’s class on Monday.  They will also be taking photos of pupil groups.  Please could pupil group members and prefects wear their badges, if possible?  Thank you.


Health & Safety: lower gate closure

Thank you for your patience while the lower gate is out of action.  This is due to the nesting birds who have chosen to nest inside the gate post.


Next Wednesday - School Council fundraiser for Guide Dogs

On Wednesday 24th May the School Council is organising activities to raise money to donate to the charity Guide Dogs for the Blind.  There will be a collection bucket on the gate on the morning of Wednesday 24th May, then later in the day all pupils will have an opportunity to take part in short competitions (e.g. name the toy dog, guess the number of sweets) with the chance of winning a prize.  We look forward to raising money for this very worthy charity.


Year 5 Cycling Proficiency

Mrs Tanner’s class – 5T – will undertake Cycling Proficiency training during the week beginning Monday 12th June.  Mrs Vanstone’s class – 5V – will do so during the week beginning Monday 26th June.  Specific information will be sent out to Year 5 parents next week.  Please will parents/carers check that the children’s bikes are in good working order and that they have helmets.  If your child does not have access to a bike, please let us know.   Thank you.


PTA News

  • Thank you everyone for all the lovely plants and seedlings donated last Friday. We raised a super £163.85 and hope everyone is now enjoying planting up their purchases and watching them flourish. A special thank you to WaitroseAsda and the lovely Lisa from the Dutch Garden centre for their last-minute donations to help boost our stock.
  • PTA are holding a catch up and join in meeting straight after drop-off on Friday 26th, in school. Please come along to support us, especially Foundation Phase parents - we need newcomers as the older years start to move on. 
  • New event - Children’s Book & Bird Seed Sale (I know!) on Friday 9th June. This is the first Friday back after the half term so if you have time to have a clear out, we will be delighted to receive good condition children’s books all that week in prep for the Friday sale. Thank you!
  • Date for your diary - Summer Fayre 7th July. If you enjoyed the last one, why not help out for a spell on a stall at this one? Every little honestly does help. 

Best wishes, Lakeside PTA  


I would like to extend my thanks to the Lakeside PTA for all their hard work organising events to raise funds for school. 


Wishing you all a pleasant weekend,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
