Please find information below which has been emailed about upcoming Christmas activities. Detailed arrangements for Nursery on 3rd and 4th December have been emailed to parents. All children should have brought an envelope home from school with tickets and other information. Please contact school if you have not received this.
To start the half term, the Criw Cymraeg have chosen ‘Tachwedd’ (November) and ‘mae’n ddrwyg gen i’ (I’m sorry) as our new ‘Gair Yr Wythnos’ – ‘Word of the Week.’ We are all working hard to use these words each day. Llongyfarchiadau to our Siaradwyr Cymraeg Yr Wythnos (Welsh Talkers of the Week): Phoebe, Kayden, Henry, Harry, Lily, Daisy, Summer, Ruby, Jack, Rhoda, Ewan, Faye, Olivia a Evan. We are very proud of you. In our Gwasanaeth (Assembly) next week the Criw Cymraeg will introduce some exciting Welsh Apps that they have been finding out about and learning how to use. We will share these with you in our next news bulletin and maybe you would like to put them on your devices at home. Enjoy the weekend – Mwynhau’r penwythnos!
The NSPCC’s ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme is visiting Barker’s Lane once again on Friday 15th November to make sure that the children have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse. This will take the form of an infant assembly, a junior assembly and then a further workshop for Y5&6 children. An email has been sent home with further information and links to the NSPCC website which has a wealth of information and advice which is available for parents and carers.
At our school assembly before half term we had representatives from the Christmas shoebox appeal join us to talk about the charity, the work they are involved in and to show videos of where donated gifts go to and who receives them. We have supported this locally based charity for a number of years and they are now preparing to receive filled shoeboxes, having made arrangements with us for a collection day.
Leaflets were sent home explaining the shoebox appeal following the assembly. Thank you to all the parents and children that have said they will help to support this annual initiative; if you could send in your completed box to school by Thursday 21st November 2019 we will ensure that it is added to the collection.
Spare leaflets are available from the school office and additional details are available from the website www.teams4u.com
We can’t quite believe we’re at the end of the first half term already. Please remember that it is PTA ‘Bring a Gift Day’ tomorrow in lieu of wearing school uniform. All of the gifts that the children bring in will be used as prizes at the PTA Christmas Fair or the upcoming PTA Christmas Shopping & Pamper Evening.
There is a list of diary dates for next half term below and also a copy of the new school meals menu. The menu will also be available on the school website after half term. As always diolch yn fawr for your support and happy half term when it arrives at the end of the day tomorrow.
Please see the attached information about upcoming events for the children and families.
Please see letter below from Mrs Edwards about safe parking following the report of a serious health and safety matter this morning. Diolch.
The Criw Cymraeg have chosen ‘Hydref’ (October) and ‘wrth gwrs’ (of course) as our ‘Gair Yr Wythnos’ – ‘Word of the Week’. We will all be trying our best to use these words each day.
Llongyfarchiadau to our Siaradwyr Cymraeg Yr Wythnos (Welsh Talkers of the Week): Mila, Emily, Kai, Huw, Finley, Tristan a Emily. We are very proud of you.
Dydd Gwener (Friday) we are looking forward to our Gwasanaeth (Asembly), which will be taken by the Urdd Gobaith Cymru.
Diolch yn fawr for the donations that we have already received for our Harvest table. Any donations of foodstuffs (packets / tins) which are in date can be brought in on Monday morning ready for our Harvest Service on Tuesday. All of the donations will be given to Local Solutions / Save the Family who provide for local families in need.
Special Harvest Lunch – Thursday 24th October. The usual menu will be replaced with Meatballs in Tomato Sauce or Country Bake, Pasta or Diced Potatoes, Peas and Sweetcorn & a Muffin Medley.
The Walk Wise pedestrian training planned for Y2 tomorrow has been postponed until Thursday 17th October by the providers. We will be able to use the consent form that you have already provided for your child which you returned in July if you chose for your child to participate.
Your child will still require warm clothing e.g. gloves / hat and a waterproof coat to protect their uniform as the training takes place outdoors.
