1D have been learning about the environment and the houses they live in. They have been writing about their journey to school and the things they have met and seen along the way. As part of their project they have made maps and models of houses, buildings, football grounds and even Stanley Park! The effort they have made has been outstanding and all the children have produced some really imaginative work! Well done Year 1!!

Mrs Hartley went to visit Year 6 in Colomendy yesterday afternoon. They are all well and enjoying themselves. It is a bit muddy following the rain in recent weeks but not cold. So far the children have tried out lots of new activities such as building a raft, then sailing on it, building a buggy and racing it, testing their nerve on the 3G swing. They are developing their teamwork skills making new and stronger friendship bonds as they work together and support each other. Yesterday, I saw some incredible strength of character in our pupils as they faced their fears on the climbing and abseiling walls. What a sense of achievement they felt! A good breakfast sets them up for the day, followed up with hot meals for lunch and dinner to keep their energy levels high. Today is their last full day of activities and they are excited about the disco this evening.
We expect to see them back at school at 2 o’clock tomorrow (Friday).
PE Kits are now in stock across all sizes.
Year 6 set off for their residential visit to Colomendy this morning. Weather forecast for Mold is mixed for the week but not cold. I am sure they will have lots of fun trying out all of the adventurous activities on their program and we look forward to hearing all about it on Friday. Parents please be patient, there is very limited mobile phone coverage and internet access so we will update you when the messages get through – carrier pigeons might be quicker though!
We have had several phonecalls this week relating to ‘WOW Wednesday’ and the wearing of tracksuits. Just to clarify, tracksuits will no longer be worn on Wednesdays. Children should come to school in their school uniform each day and change into their PE kit on the day their PE lessons take place.
Along with the newsletter this week we will be sending home another sheet with the PE timetable printed on one side so that you can see which day(s) your child will require their PE Kit, and the timetable for the after-school sports clubs on the other side. You can also find the timetables posted on the Parentzone pages of this website. As soon as it is available, we will also post a timetable for all other after-school clubs.
Welcome back to all our pupils. Just a reminder that children are no longer required to wear tracksuits on Wednesdays. They should wear their school uniforms every day and change into their PE Kit when they have their PE lessons. Please refer to this week’s newsletter for further information.
A new school year has begun!
A warm welcome back everyone. We hope you all had a good rest over the summer, returning to school full of enthusiasm and ready to learn. Teachers were very pleased with their new classes yesterday as pupils settled in quickly; keen to get started on the many exciting activities planned for this term.
You may have noticed some changes that have happened over the summer holidays!
The pedestrian gate at the front of school has been moved and the area fenced off to begin the creation of a Forest school area for outdoor learning. This will be further developed as children and volunteers work with Mrs Donohue to add trees, plants, insect hotels etc. to the Nature Garden.
Additional space has been created in the two Reception classes with the installation of glazed screens beneath the existing canopy. Many thanks to Mr Butler (one of our governors) who gave his time voluntarily to fit the panels over the summer holiday.
We look forward to a successful year working with parents, families and all of our partner agencies.
Reminder to all parents that Monday 4th September is an INSET Day for staff.
Pupils in Years 1-6 return on Tuesday 5th September. Gates open at 8.30am.
Nursery and Reception pupils should attend as advised in letters sent out to parents.
The school office will be open on Monday 4th should parents wish to buy items of school uniform.
Enjoy the final week of the summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you all next week.
