DANCE CLUB NEXT WEEK

Due to Parents’ Evenings, there will be no school-run after-school clubs next week other than Dance Club, which will go ahead on Thursday as usual.

SPORTS KIT SPONSORSHIP

We have a variety of teams that represent our school in a number of different sports but our team kits are now looking very well used.  We are hoping to replace our rugby, football, athletics and netball team kits.  In order to help us do this, we are looking for local businesses to help us with sponsorship.  We have already been able to secure two companies to help us, if you have any links with companies or have friends or family members able to support us, please do contact the school.

WORLD BOOK DAY

This year we will be celebrating World Book Day on Friday 2nd March with a ‘Magical Beasts’ theme throughout the school.  Lots of exciting activities will be going on, including a whole school creation of a Compendium of Magical Beasts!  We are not dressing up this year.

We are looking for willing volunteers to help us make the day even more exciting… If you would like to be a part of the celebrations by sharing a story with one of our classes at some point during the day please email the school office and Mrs Sheldon will get in touch with you.

 FROM OUR LOLLIPOP LADY

Jean, our Lollipop Lady says ‘I would like to thank all parents and children for the gifts, hugs and kisses they gave me when I moved on from the crossing – what a send off! Thank you all so much. Keep safe and good luck to you all. Jean.’

We would like to also thank Jean for keeping us safe in all weathers and send her our very best wishes for the future!

 GIRLS FOOTBALL TEAM CHAMPIONS

Huge congratulations to our girls’ football team who travelled to a tournament in Cardiff on Thursday.  We are very proud of the team who demonstrated determination and great team spirit.  The team won each of their games against schools from Cardiff and the Vale which makes them the undisputed regional champions!

STEM WEEK 2018

We will be celebrating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week during the week beginning 12th March 2018.

If you are able and willing to come into school to talk to pupils about your STEM-related job during that week, we would love to hear from you.

Please let Miss Harries or the office staff know if you are able to come in, indicating the day, topic and year group you would like to visit.  Thank you in anticipation of your support.

NUMERACY WORKSHOPS AND OPEN AFTERNOONS

Thank you to everyone who attended our numeracy workshops and open afternoons this week.  The events were highly successful and we would like to thank you for the positive feedback, we hope that it will give you a better insight into how we teach maths in Sully PS.

ATTENDANCE FOR THE WEEK

Our whole-school attendance figure for the week is 91.1%.  Please help us improve this figure.

 PTA NEWS

Did you know that last year at the Mother’s Day sale in the school the PTA wrapped 1700 gifts –  yes you read it right, 1700 gifts for the children to buy and give to their mums!

Donations are so important to this event – is it time to have a good clear out of unwanted gifts, body lotions, bubble baths, costume jewellery, chocolates etc?  Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away – please can we ask for any donations of Mother’s Day gifts to be taken into school by Friday 16th February, labelled ‘PTA Mothers Day’.

The gifts will be sold to the children on Friday 9th March ready for Mother’s Day, raising funds for the school and allowing the children to choose a lovely gift for their mum.

We also need lots of helpers on this day, all day or just the morning/afternoon Please text Michaela on 07919043310 if you can help.
