Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you to all who joined in our coronation celebrations – wearing red, white and blue and dancing on the gate.  Remember to stop by later to buy a cake from the PTA (FP Hall).  We had a great day marking the King’s coronation and wish everyone a pleasant Bank Holiday weekend.


New markings have been laid on the Foundation Phase playground this week and we would like to thank the PTA for funding these and Lakeside families for supporting the PTA!   


Coronation at the Crossroads: Monday 8th May, Park End Church, 10am to 2pm

Park End Church on Rhydypennau crossroads is holding a family celebration/activity day on Monday 8th May 10am to 2pm.  The event is free and open to everyone.  There will be activities and crafts for children, a bouncy castle, a BBQ, a football competition and an ice cream van.  Some local charities will also be represented and all proceeds will go to charity.


PTA Seedling Sale – Friday May 12th at pick-up time

Don’t forget the PTA Seedling Sale next Friday (12th May).  Please drop seedling donations off on the morning of the 12th – they can be left by the PTA storage container.  The sale will start around pick-up time.  Thank you.


Arrival at Nursery

In order to protect the health and safety of children in the playground before the start of Nursery, the shutters onto the Nursery playground will be closed at the beginning of the morning and afternoon sessions.  Please could parents/carers queue with your child along the Nursery path until Nursery opens at 9am or 12.45pm.  Thank you.


Nursery appeal for items

Nursery has received a lot of donations – thank you so much!  So far they have plenty of toy buggies, tools and food, but would still love to receive the following if anyone has some they’d like to donate:  baby dolls, toy pots/pans and cooking utensils, things for the construction house e.g. adult size paint brushes, rollers, safety goggles, toy lawn mowers and leaf blowers.  They also need golf tees, wooden stacking toys, number/mathematical jigsaws & puzzles, mathematical books suitable for nursery (number/shape etc), dice – large and small, kaleidoscopes, toy microscopes, Playdough accessories, toy diggers/JCBs, toy cars, small world play – fairies, police, pirates (but not pirate boats), age 5/6 or 6/7 joggers and leggings, comics for Nursery-age children and a couple of new items – unicorns and mermaids!  Thank you so much.   


Wishing you all a pleasant Bank Holiday weekend,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
