Headteacher Weekly News – 30.06.17

Foundation Phase children nominated for merits in Achievement Assembly this week were: Williams Hopkins, Savannah Farrell, Molly Figgis, Lottie Earls, Kaden Webborn, Beau Kennedy, Iestyn Hoyles, Alphie Sharples, Aaron Bould and Beau Kennedy.  Well done everybody – good work!

Reception intake meetings have been held this week.  They were well attended and it is really good to welcome some new children and families to Sketty School.

Year 4 have taken part in Outdoor Learning activities in the grounds of Cefn Coed this week.  We are very excited about the potential of a partnership with the hospital which allows us  continued controlled access to this fantastic and varied site, which includes woodland and meadowland.

We are now officially a Swansea Outdoor School!  Children from Year 5 went to a celebration event this morning in Gowerton Primary School and presented the work that has taken place over the last few months to a very large audience . Swansea goalscoring legend Lee Trundle was on hand to present our official certificate, which will proudly be displayed on our Achievements Board.

We have increasing issues with fidget spinners, both in and out of class.  These have started to eat into learning time and causing a lot of problems.  Therefore, fidget spinners are no longer permitted in school for the general population from next week.  There will be a very small number of cases where fidget spinners are beneficial for learners with specific needs, but these need to be agreed with school.  Please contact us if you feel your child falls into this category.  Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter.

The Week Ahead

Year 6 are on transition activities in their new  secondary schools.  We wish them well.

Teddy Bears’ Picnics are being held on Tuesday for our new morning and afternoon Nursery intake.

The P.T.A. Summer Fayre is being held on Friday; 6.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.  Please do come along to this fantastic community event –  a real highlight of the school calendar.
