Carrieann Edwards
As many of you will know our school community has been devastated at the passing away of Carrieann, our school cook. She was loved by all the children and staff and we will all miss her.  We will be holding a brief service on the school field at 1.30pm on Friday the 5th May, where pupil representatives will be releasing yellow balloons in her memory.


Welcome back after the Easter break! We hope you are refreshed and ready for a new term - we've got lots planned!

We have had a brilliant few weeks in school with all classes showing off their fantastic work in the class assemblies. It has been great to see so many of you in your children's classrooms and we welcome your feedback as this was the first time we have done this.

National Tests

The first week of May is our week for National Tests for Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. The children will be tested in Reading, and Maths. Here's a link to a good explanation of the tests.


We have also been trying our best to keep to our target for attendance this term. We know that we have nagged some of you, but it is vital that your children are in school whenever possible! We are looking to reward the pupils and classes who are in the most! Please don't let your children's attendance slip after Easter.


 
Ice Rink Trip
All our Autumn 100% pupils loved their trip to Cardiff Ice Rink!

Callio
Well done to the 56 pupils in the Red category who have improved their attendance in January!
All parents should have received a letter at the end of last term regarding their child's attendance. Each pupil has been given a ranking and we will be working very hard to ensure that all of our pupils can be in the Gold or Green categories. We can not stress how important it is that your children attend school as often as possible. We also need them here on time, as lateness is a huge issue for us.

Remember you can always keep up to date with all the amazing things going on via the school twitter feed @maesglasprimary where you'll see some great pictures!


We've had a visit from our School Liaison Officer PC Thomas who has booked dates to come and talk to our pupils. To find out more and do some activities look at www.schoolbeat.org !


Please remember that we do not allow driving, dogs or smoking on school grounds for the safety of your children.

We've now got over 1000 followers on Twitter - here's a short selection from our busy school life!



Look at the fun we had when Matthew Pritchard came to visit as part of breaking a World Record for doing the most Half Ironman Distance Triathlons in a year! Follow him at www.pritchards100kchallenge.com and help him get to his fundraising target!



We've gone green again!!! Congratulations to Mrs Hall and the Eco Council for gaining our third Green Flag!

Everyone is working hard, and big thanks goes to all pupils for making last term's attendance figures better than ever! We need to continue this term to beat our totals for the year.

We are very proud of our school, our pupils and our community. We hope that you are able to find everything you need here.
