Dear Parents/Carers,


It was lovely to welcome everyone back to school this week for the final half term of the school year.  We’ve had some lovely dry weather and this has meant that the PTA-funded playground markings could go ahead this week.  The KS2 playgrounds look great and everyone is looking forward to using our new netball and basketball hoops, cricket crease markings and five-a-side pitch and goals.  Thank you to the PTA for all their hard work arranging this and of course for paying for it all.


Many of you will have noticed that the paved area outside the main school gates has now been tarmacked by the council.  It looks much better and is very even, so is safer.


Reception and Year 4 pupils enjoyed wonderful trips this week – to Cefn Mably Farm and Bristol Aquarium.  A very animal-oriented week of visits for Lakeside pupils.


Also this week, Mrs Tanner took a group of pupils to a Lego League Challenge.  The group have been preparing for a number of weeks, building Lego machines and programming robots to work them.  The Lakeside pupils won the Robot Design Award for the best Lego robot!  Huge congratulations and well done to them.


Sun Safe Schools

The Lakeside Citizens have completed their Sun Safe video, which will form part of our accreditation for our annual Sun Safe Schools Award.  The video explains about how we need to take care when exposing ourselves to the sun and how to protect ourselves from harmful rays.  You can view the video via the link in the Parentmail emailed to you on Friday 7th June.

PS – the answers to the Young Celebs Photo section of the quiz are attached.
