Dear Parent/Carer,

What a wonderful week!  Nursery, Reception and Years 1, 3 and 6 shared their Christmas performances with families this week and each one was a joy.  The children did extremely well and really enjoyed themselves, as did their families and myself.  Many thanks to the staff for all their hard work and to parents/carers for providing costumes and props.  I’m looking forward to sharing the rest of the performances with families next week.

Thank you for sending your children into school in warm clothes – they all look very cosy in their hats, gloves, coats etc.  We’re hoping for milder weather on the weekend and into next week.



We send Happy Hanukkah wishes to all who are celebrating from this weekend.

Lakeside Citizens video and competition

In today’s assemblies the Lakeside Citizens pupil group introduced two videos they have made to promote healthy lunchboxes and good hand hygiene.  There was a lot of laughter at the healthy lunchboxes video because it features Mr Vanstone and his very unhealthy lunchbox!  After the videos the Lakeside Citizens launched a competition to design a hand washing instruction poster for use throughout the school. 


Links with local community

It has been really lovely this Christmas to have been able to re-establish links with two local care homes.  The school choir sang at Llys Celyn this week and Year 1 visited Santa’s Grotto at Cartref.  Residents were delighted to see the children and hear them sing, also to receive cards that the children had made.


Our post box

Thank you so much to one of our parents, who has decorated our post box with a beautiful Christmas scene.  It’s brought us many a smile on these cold mornings.


Wishing you all a pleasant weekend,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
