On the Monday 29th of June children are able to come to school in non-school uniform. Instead of a monetary donation we are asking the children in every year group to collect donations for a stall at this year’s summer fayre.

A list of donations are as follows:

Reception: Regular size scones (to be used in cream teas).
Year 1: Gifts/unwanted gifts or items for groceries tombola.
Year 2: Toiletries or quality items for the raffle.
Year 3: Items for grocery tombola or bottles for bottle tombola.
Year 4: Children’s toys for children’s tombola or pocket money toys for lucky dips.
Year 5: Bottles for bottle tombola or bottle bags.
Year 6: Pocket money toys for lucky dips or children’s toys for children’s tombola.

Please bring your donations into school on the morning of the Monday 29th June and leave them with your child’s class teacher.
Thank you for your continued support

Year 6 Camp to Morfa Bay

Last week, children in Year 6 were on camp in Morfa Bay! It was a fantastic week filled with lots of activities including abseiling, ziplining, caving, sea kayaking and of course the mud assault course (sorry about the dirty clothes!)

Take a look at some of the photos taken over the course of the week.

Shop 4 U – Monday 29th June

There will be a SHOP 4 U sale on Monday 29th June at 1:15pm in the main hall for years 3 – 6.

Items of stationery on sale in aid of the SHIVA charity, a charity TMHP school has supported since the Tsunami of 2004. All funds raised help towards the running costs of a rebuilt nursery school in Sri Lanka which was destroyed by the Tsunami and is now known as TMH nursery school following our contribution to the fund.

Sports Day 2015

This year, our annual school sports day will be held at John Cabot Academy on Monday 22nd June.

Key Stage Two pupils will hold their event during the morning, from 9:30a.m onwards, and in the afternoon, it will be the turn of Foundation Stage and Key Stage One pupils, from 1:30p.m.

Pupils should come to school equipped with shorts and an appropriately coloured t-shirt, depending upon the group that your child has been placed in. Pupils will be advised of their group by the class teacher. They will also require daps or trainers and, if the weather is hot, should bring a hat or cap and wear sun cream.

Parents are welcome to watch their child participate in this event. Should the weather be poor, we will advise you by text if the event is going to be cancelled.

Please note that all children must return to school after sports day has taken place and will not be dismissed at John Cabot Academy.

If you are available to help chaperone the children to the Academy, please advise your child’s teacher.
