It’s been a pleasure to welcome everyone back to school for the last term of the 2021-22 academic year – hasn’t it gone quickly? We have a busy and fun-packed term ahead of us with trips, sports days and some fun PTA events to look forward to.
We wish all families who are celebrating Eid next week Eid Mubarak, and hope that you have pleasant and enjoyable celebrations. Here’s a link to our Ramadan and Eid video https://lakeside-primary-school-cardiff.primarysite.media/media/stories-for-ramadan-and-eid-ul-fitr
As it is a Bank Holiday on Monday, there will be no Choir next week.
Football and Gymnastics will take place on Tuesday.
A new after-school club – DanceFit - is being offered to Year 4 pupils to run on Wednesdays in the Foundation Phase Hall. This is a chance for children to learn a range of dance styles including Street, Jazz and Disco. The price is £16 per four weeks and will start on Wednesday 4th May and end on Wednesday 25th May. Please book a place for this club online via this link: www.dancefit.wales.
PTA Seedling sale: Friday 13th May
Calling all green fingered growers! Lakeside PTA is inviting all parents/ carers/ grandparents to join in an early summer garden sale. Grow something from seed, or pot something ready for our day sale on Friday 13th May at school. If you get going now, or in the Easter hols, that gives you a few weeks to cultivate and thrive!
Simply label up and drop your plant on the table by the PTA container on the morning of May 13th. (Look out for details closer to the time, weather permitting). We also invite everyone, kids especially, to buy a plant and take home. Who knows, we might even be having a tomato chutney sale in Autumn!
Year 3 Swimming
Year 3 children’s swimming lessons will take place in the weeks beginning 13th and 20th June. More information will follow shortly.
We’ve had a few reports from parents/carers about moving cars mounting pavements as children are walking to school. Obviously, this is very dangerous. Please take extra care when driving to and from school, to ensure everybody’s safety.
Have an enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend.
