​NE​WS & EVENTS​

TERM 6 TRIPS AND VISITS​

The trips and visits for Term 6 are live on ParentPay and cost £14. 75 per term, we ask that contributions are made by Monday, 15 July.

The cost of entrance fees, educational workshops, coaches, etc, has increased significantly in the last year.  As well as your contribution, the school will also be contributing a significant amount towards the trip costs, as we feel they are vitally important to the children.  This means the amount you pay has been kept as low as possible as we are aware of the cost of living crisis, however, should there be insufficient contributions received, a trip or experience may unfortunately not go ahead. 

The details of what the pupils have to look forward to in Term 6 are as follows:

EYFS - Magic and Punch & Judy show in school - Monday, 17 June 2024.

Year 1 & 2 - Knights & Castles Drama Workshop - Friday, 7 June 2024.

Year 3 & 4 - Visit to Crocodile World - Thursday, 20 June 2024 .

Year 5 & 6 - Visit to Techniquest in Cardiff - Friday, 21 June 2024.

PRIESTLEY 250 EVENT

This year is the 250th anniversary of oxygen being isolated in the laboratory at Bowood House by Dr Joseph Priestley, and, to celebrate, we are going to be holding an all-day event on Friday, 28 June 2024.

More information will be coming to you in a letter next week, but there will be an opportunity for you to join in at the end of the school day. 

We are having another non-uniform day on Wednesday, 26 June – for which we are asking for donations of cakes and bottles to help support the celebrations.

SWIMMING - YEAR 5 & 6 - Extra sessions, selected pupils

As you may be aware, part of the National Curriculum requires pupils in Year 6 to be able to swim 25 metres by the time they leave primary school.  With this in mind, we are able to offer selected pupils in Avocet and Mallard extra swimming lessons from Monday, 10 June 2024 until Monday, 8 July 2024 to help them achieve this goal.  

 

The lessons will take place on Monday afternoons between 1.30 pm and 2.30 pm and run for 5 weeks. 

 

We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £3 per session (£15 for the 5 weeks) towards the cost of the swimming for your child.

 

NON UNIFORM DAY

Reminder we have a non uniform day in school on Wednesday, 26 June.  We are asking for donations of bottles, anything from bottles of soft drink to bottles of wine. These will be prizes for the tombola.
