Dear Parents/Carers,

 

It’s hard to believe that next week is the last week of this half term, and, although it has been short, it’s been a busy one. I’m sure we’re all hoping for an improvement in the weather for the final half term of the academic year so that we can enjoy the outdoors, especially the Hundred Acre Wood garden at the front of the school, which will soon be finished and ready for use.

 

Class Photos: Monday 23rd May

Colorfoto will be visiting school to take class photos on Monday. Please see below for arrangements for Year 2.

 

Year 2 Class Photos: Friday 27th May

Year 2 will be on a trip on Monday, so Colorfoto are visiting on Friday to take photos of Year 2. As this is Red, White & Blue Day, if you would like your child to be in school uniform for the photos please send them to school wearing uniform and they can change into their red, white & blue costume afterwards. Alternatively, they can be ‘in costume’ for the photo.

 

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

On this day, we are 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.

 

One-way system (Foundation Phase)

We would like to continue using the one-way system for drop-off and pick-up because it has proved successful in easing congestion and providing more space for pushchairs. Thank you.

 

PTA News

Seedling sale spectacular!

What a fabulous inaugural Lakeside Seedling (and Ice Pops!) Sale we had last Friday. Whilst very windy, we were thrilled with the many many numbers of you both donating and buying. (Bravo to the grandparents too!) Thank you very much all. Over £170 was raised in that breezy hour. We sold nearly everything, after a flutter of purchases from the teachers, and with the infant garden project underway it was perfect timing to hand over the balance of stock for the newly built raised beds. No pressure teachers and staff, we will all be watching how they do in the new garden!!

 

Jubilee trail

To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee we are inviting families to set up anything with a royal connection in their garden - think kings and queens, British tea party, rule Britannia. Go for it! If you’d like to take part, please message lakesideprimarycardiffpta@gmail.com and be ready to display from Sunday 29th May to Wednesday 8th June when the kids go back to school. Currently we need a few more entries for this event to go ahead - you feeling it? If so please email us by Monday 23rd to give us time to set up and share the trail.

 

After-school Clubs next half term

All After-school Clubs will continue after the break but due to the bank holiday and Inset Day all clubs will start the second week back, so the week commencing Monday 13th June, 2022.

 

Best wishes for a pleasant weekend,

 

Rachel Mitchell

Headteacher
