FROM MR WILLIAMS:
‘This has been an extremely busy term for all in Sully Primary School – parents’ evenings, open days, numeracy and literacy events for parents, enrichment activities, countless visitors, presentations and fabulous Christmas productions…all in just 15 weeks!
I would like to thank you for the support you have shown as we have been brave and introduced new ways of learning to our school, developing our children as capable and independent learners. Following consultation with pupils we have adapted our enrichment activities and look forward to re-introducing them to children in the spring term.
We have decided not to repeat the literacy and numeracy events for parents in the spring term, however we are producing more useful videos to post on our website which we will bring to your attention once completed.
On behalf of all staff I would like to thank you for your kind cards, gifts and Christmas wishes. From all at Sully Primary School, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a prosperous 2019. Nadolig Llawen & Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!’
SOMETHING TO GET YOU IN THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT….
Listen out for us on Bro Radio (98.1fm or broradio.fm) on Christmas Eve! Some of the songs from our recent Christmas concerts and shows were recorded and will be broadcast as follows:
Y1 between 12.00pm and 12.20pm
Y2 between 1.00pm and 1.20pm

If your child would like to start guitar lessons in January, please see the details attached to this newsletter.
Miss Harries would like to thank everyone who came to her Enrichment Group’s ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ sale. It made a £50 profit to be used for resources in the classroom.
The Year 6 teachers and children would like to thank everyone who supported their recent Enterprise day. The day raised £230 which has been used to purchase a class set of novels which will be used to enhance next term’s topic, WW2.
NEW – SULLY CODE CLUB!

Congratulations to Lily G in Y4CP – she won the Penarth Town Mayor’s Christmas Painting Competition 2018. She will be presented with her prize in a special assembly the New Year.
ATTENDANCE FOR THE WEEK
Our whole-school attendance figure for this week is only 94.6%, below our school target of 96.4%.
Individual class figures were as follows:
SH 97.4 %
So Mr Jarvis’s class is top of the Foundation Phase this week and the two Y4 classes were the joint KS2 champions. Well done – these classes will have extra play next week and another sticker on the graph!
Thanks to everyone who has supported the PTA so far this year, in this term we have made just under £3,000 for the school.
The movie night was a great success and the children had great fun, we made £480.
Please look out for next year’s events and we wish you a happy Christmas from the PTA!
