Updates from Mrs Phillips

Dear Parents/ Carers,


School update.

I hope this update finds you well. We are hopeful that we shall carefully return to “normal” times, which means we could be looking at a summer term filled with lots of activities that parents/carers will be able to attend! Watch this space!


Staffing News

Mrs Sander, one of our year 1 teachers, has decided to take a career break. Mrs Palmer will continue in her place and Miss Baldwin will continue as class teacher in Reception. We wish Mrs Sander well and wish her luck with any new ventures.


Exciting news!

We have been invited by the Local Authority on Wednesday 9th March, to be part of the opening ceremony for the cities new Arena. We are limited to taking 10 children to the opening. It is never easy to choose just 10 children from our fabulous school! In this instance, 10 members of our School Council will represent the school. The Countess of Wessex will be present and the children will have a chance to talk to her during the opening ceremony.

On Thursday 10th March, the school will be visited by, The Lord Lieutenant, High Sheriff and Lord Mayor to plant a tree commemorating the Queens Jubilee. They will also officially open our new well-being shed outdoor reading area and our long awaited play area! I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has attended any event organised by our wonderful, hard-working PTA. The money raised has made the new play area and out-door reading space possible. Thank you so much.


Helping Hand

We really seem to be moving to the other side of the pandemic with much relief. As one global incident comes to and end we know are faced with news of the terrible conflict in the Ukraine. As a school, we would like to contribute to the efforts of the Red Cross who work tirelessly in areas of conflict. On Friday 11th March, every child will be plant a Sunflower seed. They will care for the plant and bring it home just before the Easter break. We have chosen Sunflowers, as they are the Ukraine’s national flower. We ask, if you are able to, please contribute a £1 per child to this venture with money collected going to the Red Cross.


And finally…

We have had a great week in school. Year 5 and 6 have been on their first residential to LLangrannog. It is the first time in over 2 years that we have had this opportunity. Many thanks to our wonderful staff who tell me they too had a great time! Our Cynefin fortnight, a celebration incorporating our Eisteddfod and visitors to school celebrating being Welsh is in full swing. The school is buzzing with welsh music, singing, ukuleles and poetry. All children have enjoyed taking part in the Eisteddfod competitions and wait with baited breath for the results to be announced next Friday.

We really do seem to be moving toward school normality. Let us hope the very welcome end is in sight.


Thank you for your continued support.
