Culture Day is on Friday 17th February 2017 – Our focus will be South Africa. We have South African Dance workshops throughout the day and children will be learning about various traditions and culture. Children can wear anything related to South Africa. This may be simply the colours of the South African Flag – Red, White, Blue, Green, Yellow and Black or something more extreme – your choice!

St David’s Day – Wednesday 1st March 2017 – Welsh costume / Theme / Rugby Shirts etc can be worn to school – We will be taking photographs for South Wales Argus and will use the permissions we have on file.

World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March 2017 – Children can dress as their favourite book character for the day!

SAINSBURY VOUCHERS (25th January to 30th June 2017)

We are collecting Sainsbury Active Kids Vouchers. Please send in any vouchers. Last year we purchased scooters for the Nursery and PE equipment for the whole school by using the vouchers. There is a collection box in the foyer area of the school. Your support is greatly appreciated!

LATENESS

We have a minority of children who are continually late. I will be meeting with our Education welfare Officer this week and will raise the issue of lateness. Please remember that all children should be in school by 9am. Doors are open from 8.50am.

FAMILY PHOTO MONEY

Could we please have orders and money for family photographs in school by MONDAY 13TH FEBRUARY

SWEATSHIRTS

A child in Reception has lost his sweatshirt, his name is ironed on the inside of the sweatshirt.  Please check all sweatshirts and make sure the shirt you have belongs to your child.  Don’t forget to mark all items of clothing with permanent marker or name tapes.
