Newsletter, Thursday 24th May 2018

Another fantastic week of learning across the school! We hope you all enjoy a well earned rest over the half term break and come back refreshed and eager to start the final journey of this school year.

Our year 3 class enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Hay Festival where they spent the day immersed in literature.  It was a huge success, an amazing experience and one that I’m sure the school would like to run on an annual basis.

This week the BBC team from London visited our school to film our School Council & Eco Committee’s assembly to launch a new project aimed at reducing the amount of plastic we use across the school. Our guests gave some wonderful feedback of their experience at Bips and all of the children were a credit to their families.

The BBC’s visit helped to highlight the challenges that plastic pollution poses to our planet.  This marks the official launch of an important journey for our children and we need your support!  Please help your child on our mission to make all lunchboxes ‘packaging free’.  All the children are bringing home a letter today that provides details of our ‘Lunchbox Challenge’ – the children are really passionate about the project, so lets really go for it and do our bit!

We are also sending home a letter today with information about how we use data about our children. This is driven by EU legislation and all schools are required to comply. We will keep you informed of developments as they happen.

Diolch.

This week we saw the completion of the National Tests. We are so proud of all of the children for their hard work, perseverance and fantastic attitude towards doing the very best that they could. Da iawn pawb! What else has happened?

Year 2 & 3 were treated to some cricket taster sessions down at the Barry Island cricket ground by ‘All Stars Cricket’. The children had a wonderful, fun, learning experience and if you would like your child to continue to be involved, contact: Mark Ellis 07826 020707; Email: markellis@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk

As a whole school we have been busy planning for next week’s ‘Creative Week’ learning event. Every year group has been allocated a country as a focus and the children will be immersed in an exciting variety of arts & crafts, music & dance activities. To support the event, we would very grateful if you are able to provide any unwanted lollipop sticks, pipe cleaners, buttons, glitter, string, wool, sequins and any adult shirts, T Shirts, aprons, newspapers etc to help us keep the children clean! Diolch.

We would like to thank the Year 2 parents who were able to join us for the “Maths & Reasoning Explained” session today and we hope it was of value in helping you support your children’s learning.

Year 1 & 2 have been busy developing the new Active Learning Lab. It has been transformed into a Peruvian jungle in readiness for their WOW day next Tuesday to launch their Creative Learning week activities.

We will be holding our Self Evaluation Day on our Inset Day, Friday 25th May. We would be grateful if everyone could return the Parent Questionnaires we sent out this week by Friday 18th May. Your feedback is a vital part of our school improvement plans going forward so please make sure you take the opportunity to share your thoughts with us. Together we can continue to make sure the children enjoy the very best experiences on their learning journeys through BIPS. Each year group will pull a questionnaire out of a hat and the lucky winner will receive a bottle of wine as a thank you for your feedback.

The children have worked so hard to prepare themselves for the National Tests. Thanks to all those parents who ensured their children were in school this week to do the best that they can! What else has been happening?

Year 1 had a visit from Mr. Thomas and his guide dog puppy Ena. The children were treated to a wonderful presentation about guide dog training and had the opportunity to give Ena lots of love!

Year 3 have been engaging with their new topic and finding out about natural disasters around the world and exploring the issues of global warming and the impact it may have on our planet.

As part of their Blitz topic, Year 5 have been introduced to the wonderful songs of Vera Lynn and learnt about the important role they played in raising the morale of the British soldiers during WW2.

Just a reminder that we would like our Year 2 parents to join us for a “Maths & Reasoning Explained” session at 1:30pm on May 11thin our school café. A warm welcome is extended to all.

Our Foundation Phase Team would be delighted to receive any unwanted coat hangers, clothes rails, and children’s role play clothing for a new learning project. Please contact Mrs Evans or Miss Pringle if you can help any way. Diolch.

Our Nursery Children had a visit from the ‘Designed to Smile’ team this week. The children engaged wonderfully with the team and learnt all about the importance of dental hygiene and how to look after their big sparkly smiles!

Year 4 are enjoying their ‘Gods and Gladiators’ topic and conducted some excellent research on the Roman Gods. Their next focus is to study the invasion of Britain and consider the Roman legacy and how it impacts our everyday lives.

Another very busy week in BIPS. We are so proud of the children continuing to work hard to prepare themselves for the National Tests. They have all shown a fantastic attitude to their learning and real determination and perseverance to do the best they can. We’ve also had lots of other exciting learning opportunities across the school.

‘All Stars Cricket’ visited the school and delivered an assembly to the children about a new ECB initiative. The aim is to provide children from 5-8 years old with 8 weeks of non-stop fun. The activity and game based programme is suitable for all skill levels, and provides the foundations to begin a lifelong love of physical activity and cricket, while making friends in a safe and enjoyable environment. For more info: Tel: Mark Ellis 07826 020707; Email: markellis@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk

Mrs Evans would like to extend an invitation to our Year 2 parents to join us for a “Maths & Reasoning Explained” session at 1:30pm on May 11thin our school café. A warm welcome to all.

Day 22.4.2018. The aim this year is to help end plastic pollution. Plastic is threatening our planet’s survival, from poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our streams and landfills. Across the school the children were passionately engaged in activities supporting the effort to change attitudes and behaviours in line with our Eco School theme of ‘together, we can make a difference’.

For more info visit: https://www.earthday.org/

Following last week’s request, the foundation Phase Team would still be very grateful to receive any unwanted old keys, shells, coins, ‘’small world’’ items such as cars, trucks, toy animals, etc.  Many thanks to those who have already managed to donate some items, it is really appreciated! Please contact Mrs Evans or Miss Pringle if you can help any way. Diolch.

We would like to extend our thanks to the families of our newest children in Dosbarth Mesen for helping them to settle in quickly into our school and begin their wonderful learning journeys at BIPS.

We hope you’ve all enjoyed a happy and safe Easter holiday break. We are so excited for the next chapter of our learning journey as we move into Summer Term.

Please be mindful that Summer Term traditionally embraces more outdoor learning opportunities and it is important that the children are protected with sun cream, drinking water and hats as appropriate.

Our Foundation Phase Team have been very busy planning some exciting new ‘active learning’ opportunities for this term.  To support our new project, we would be very grateful to receive any unwanted old keys, shells, coins, ‘’small world’’ items such as cars, trucks, toy animals, etc.  What a great opportunity to clear out all those dusty drawers and boxes in the shed or garage! Please send in any items to Mrs Evans or Miss Pringle. Diolch.

As part of our Healthy Schools programme, we have been working with ASH Wales Cymru to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking, and especially ‘passive smoking’.  The children have been writing poems and creating artwork about the dangers, and all of their work will be submitted to ASH Wales as part of a nationwide competition. The winners of the competition will have their work professionally published in a book that will be available for purchase.

Some of our year 5 & 6 pupils took part in their first Tag Rugby Festival at Maslin Park this week.  The event was well attended by schools from all over the Vale.  It was a fantastic afternoon of rugby, fiercely competitive, but always played in the spirit of fairness and sportsmanship.  Our school team performed exceptionally well considering it was the first time we had played this year.  The children represented their school with pride and showed great determination and team spirit! Da iawn pawb.

What a fantastic last week of Spring Term! All of the teaching team have been so impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and positive attitude to their learning. Da iawn pawb.

On Tuesday Year 1 & 2 enjoyed an amazing outdoor learning experience at Greenmeadow Community Farm. They learnt about milking cows, the life of a chick, and even got to feed pet cows, sheep and goats! The children were a credit to both their school and their parents and a great day was had by all.

On Wednesday Year 4 enjoyed an educational visit to the Westhaven Quay construction project where they donned their green Hi-Vis jackets and toured the site to learn about the construction industry and how to build energy efficient homes. We’ve also been asked to take part in a Time Capsule event where the children’s work will be buried at a secret location on the site.

The children have also been learning about the Easter Story and re-telling the events in their classes. We celebrated the Easter Festival week with our fantastic Easter Bonnet parade. The children were so proud of their wonderful creations and it was a joy to behold! Huge thanks as always to all the parents for their continued support.

Dosbarth Mesen held two open days this week for families which was a huge success. A wide range of activities were shared such as how technology is used to support the learning journey and different ways to nurture and foster early reading engagement and confidence. A big Diolch to those that were able to join us.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish Mr Broad ‘Bon Voyage’ and pob lwc for his new adventures. He will be missed by our school community but we look forward to working with him again in his new role with the consortium.

Another inspiring week at Barry Island Primary School with a host of exciting learning opportunities happening across the school.

Dosbarth Ceirios have been developing their oracy skills through technology, using Photobooth to record themselves re-telling the story of Jack & the Beanstalk. Da iawn, pawb.

Our wonderful School Council worked really hard to plan and organise Sports Relief Day on Monday where the whole school took part in completing the ‘Sports Relief Mile’. Children chose whether to walk, run, skip, bounce, hop, sing, dance their way around and the event was a great success! Diolch to all those who kindly donated to the charity and our School Council will ensure that 100% of the funds raised will go straight to the charity.

Dosbarth Mesen held a ‘Go Go Disco’ in aid of Sports Relief. The children were all their Barry Island best and great fun was had by all!

Dosbarth Helygen celebrated their topic work by visiting two Welsh Castles this week, Castell Coch and Caerphilly Castle. The children had a wonderful educational experience, developing historical enquiry skills, identifying key features of the castles and comparing and contrasting the structures and designs.

Dosbarth Bedwen used their technology skills to partake in a questions and answers session using Skype. They linked with international public speaker on environmental challenges for our oceans, Emily Penn.

We are pleased to confirm that Miss P Davies will be acting Deputy Head during Mr Broad’s secondment with Mr P Smith joining the Senior Management Team. We also welcome Mrs Gilmore to the school as the new teacher for Dosbarth Bedwen.
