WEEKLY UPDATE – 20th November
A very busy week for everyone.
I have really enjoyed watching and listening to the Y6 Youth Speaks presentations and have learnt such a lot! They have worked really hard to put together great Powerpoints, full of lots of information. They have also shown how well they collaborate with each other. Thank you; a real treat!
As you know, we raised over £300 for Children in Need, and now we have also raised almost £210 for the Royal British Legion. Thank you for your amazing generosity.
A reminder that we are offering a Happiness Training workshop on Monday 30th November at 6:30pm via TEAMs. If you would like to join, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to everyone who has already replied. We will confirm arrangements closer to the time.
CHRISTMAS RAFFLE – PLEASE HELP!
Unfortunately, this year, due to COVID we have missed out on many school fundraising opportunities such as The Green Man and the Summer Fair. This is likely to continue for some time.
We are delighted to say that the Llangattock Community Education Trust has very kindly donated £5,000 towards the replacement of our Foundation Phase outdoor play equipment, which, together with PTA funds and money from School fund, will enable us to replace all of the play equipment this year. However, this will leave very little money for any other resources, workshops and activities the PTA usually support.
With this in mind we are planning a Christmas raffle and are hoping for donations from parents, guardians, grandparents and supporters of the school.
We would like to create 3 Christmas treat hampers, so we are looking for good quality new items, such as Christmas treats, drinks, decorations, seasonal items etc. which will be made into the 3 hampers.
Please can we have any donations by Monday 30th November.
I hope you feel you are able to support us with this, and of course support us by buying raffle tickets later in the term.
- Mon-Happiness Training Session 3-whole school
Have a great weekend.
WEEKLY UPDATE – 13th November 2020
Please see the Autumn newsletter. It does contain dates/events for this term, but they may well change over the coming weeks.
Thank you to everyone for supporting Children in Need today. The children were brilliant and really enjoyed their local walk and spending time in the school grounds. We just managed to keep dry! We will confirm the total raised on Monday.
Flu vaccinations went well and the school nurse team commented on how great the children were.
As previously mentioned, Katie, from Happiness Training, who has been working with the children to help develop well-being, is providing a parent workshop, via TEAMS on Monday 30th November at 6:30pm. The session will be fun, no pressure(!) and help you to support your child with the sessions and strategies they have been doing in school.
She is happy for you to join with/without mics and cameras and promises to make it a fun, relevant, workshop. If you would like to join this session, please respond by return email, so we can add you into the invite/send you a link to join the session.
I appreciate no time is perfect/convenient for everyone, but I hope you will be able to join her for this workshop.
Monday – Happiness Training Session 3 (Whole School)
Thursday – Indian Dance Workshop KS2 & Bronze Ambassador Meeting
Have a lovely weekend.
WEEKLY UPDATE – 6th November 2020
This week all of the children have been involved in Happiness training, with Katie. It was great fun and will teach the children strategies to help develop a positive mental attitude and resilience; particularly important at this strange time.
Katie will be training staff and offering a virtual parent workshop, so you can help support your children at home, with these strategies. As soon as the date is confirmed I will send it out. I hope you’ll be able to join us.
Thank you to everyone who bought poppy merchandise this week. We have a few pieces left, so if anyone has forgotten, or missed their day, but would like to buy something, then money can be sent in on Monday.
Next week is quite busy
Monday-Session 2 of Happiness Training for all children
Wednesday-Armistice Day. KS2 children will be walking to the park, where we will meet Reverend Morgan Llewellyn who will lead the 2 minute silence at 11 o’clock. Sadly, this year we are not asking adults to join us, so we can keep the children in their cohorts and ensure social distancing. Hopefully next year we will be able to once again run our Cuppa and Cake day.
Thursday-IMPORTANT Flu Vaccine. The school nurse has asked that parents of children with asthma inform the school, or the school nurse if their child has increased their use of inhalers 72 hours prior to the vaccination, or if they have been taking prescribed steroids in the last two weeks. If this is the case for any child with asthma, he/she will not be able to have the vaccination at this time.
The Risk Assessment supplied by the School Nurse Service is attached.
Friday-Children in Need. Children may come to school dressed in their own clothes (please ensure these are COVID friendly; no dressing up outfits/props etc). We will be doing a walk, weather permitting, followed by a hot chocolate and biscuit. We are asking for a minimum of £2 donation to Children in Need.
Finally, the Harvest Assemblies should be on the school website this weekend; we hope you enjoy them!
Have a great weekend.
