Dear parent/ carer
Our healthy and confident bees would like to bring back the walking bus and would like to encourage more children to walk to school. Therefore, with this in mind, Mr Civil will be starting our walking bus from the Pengry Road Working men’s club at 8.30am every Wednesday morning. If your children would like to get involved please meet at the Pengry Road club car park to join in.
Our reception children have experienced ballet, our year 2 children have been joining in with Street dance, and year 3 have started learning to play the violin in string-along. Interest groups have involved scooter skills, sewing, forest fun, gardening, and Swansea City Football club has been working with our Year 5 children so the school has been very busy this week! Well done to all our ambitious and capable learners.
A few things to remind you about over the coming weeks…
Monday, June 6th and Friday 22nd July are now staff training days. Please put the dates in your diary and spread the word!
CAMHS School In-reach Team are offering a two-session parent workshop on supporting your child with their worries.
Learn how to manage your child’s worries in a supportive manner that fosters emotional resilience for your child. The workshop offers an opportunity to understand the science behind worry while providing practical strategies to manage worry in the home and for life outside of school. Look inside the worry cycle, understand the physical feelings of worries and how to manage them, and explore when extra support may be needed. Come along to the school on 24th May and 7th June between 2pm-3pm. We look forward to seeing you.
Class of 2023 Hoodies
The year 5 children have been asking me about the “Class of 2023” hoodies for the next academic year. This seems to be an exciting event for the children! After discussions with the year 5 class and JSTF children, we have decided that the selection of colours will not be as wide this year and we will be sticking to just 5 colours to choose from. Order forms and sample sizes will be available over the next few weeks for parents.
Curriculum for Tre Uchaf Parent Event
From September 2022, our school will be embarking on a journey towards a new curriculum for Wales. Whilst the teaching staff and children have all shared their ideas about what our curriculum should look like in Tre Uchaf, it should also be acknowledged that you as parents and carers will also have your own ideas and suggestions about what our children should experience. Everyone is welcome to attend but I am also particularly interested in encouraging parents and carers who may belong to underrepresented groups such as BAME parents, parents in the LGBT community, parents of children with additional learning needs and parents who have children who speak English as a second language. As you know, we are a positive and inclusive school and I want to hear your thoughts and suggestions about what you think our children need to achieve or experience during their time with us.
Come along to the school hall on Wednesday 18th May at 1.30pm to discuss the new curriculum and have a cup of coffee and a slice of cake!
