Dear Parents / Carers,

The annual Indian Summer has hit us this week, which I'm sure will disappear now the weekend's here! Two weeks in and I'm delighted with the way term's settled.  There has been an industrious, positive attitude shown by all which augurs well for the year ahead; a year which after this week's news about the Glasir go-ahead will prove to be the last for us at this historic building and site.

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Mae'r Haf Indiaidd blynyddol wedi taro ni yr wythnos hon, ac rwy'n siŵr y bydd yn diflannu ynwrth i'r penwythnos gyrraedd! Rwyf wrth fy modd gyda'r fforddmae pawb wedi setlo i'r tymor newydd. Mae agwedd ddiwyd gan bawb sy'n argoeli'n dda ar gyfer y flwyddyn i ddod; y flwyddyn a fydd yn profi i fod yr olaf yn adeilad a'r safle hanesyddol yma.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Attendance - Our attendance target for this academic year is 96%, so it was pleasing that the total for last week was 96.2%.  We are eager to maintain this!  The class with the best attendance last week was Year 4.  They had extra playtime this morning!

Glasdir Build Go-ahead - I'm sure you will have noticed that the Council gave the go-ahead to start building the new school site in Glasdir.  It seems to have been a very long road to get to this point with some distance to go before we move.  We have been working with the architects and have further developed and refined internal and external plans. I will keep you updated throughout the year on developments.

School Council - Our School Council has been elected.  I'm sure they will enjoy representing the school and communicating the views of their peers.  Mrs Davies will work with them and we look forward to hearing their ideas, proposals and opinions.

Roald Dahl Day - We are celebrating Roald Dahl this week through a range of activities in each respective class.  The pupils have been enjoying the vast collage of stories he penned and taking part in fun tasks.

Reading Challenge - We have been sharing more certificates this week.  Please make every effort to ensure your child completes the challenge. Many thanks.

Eco Council - Our Eco-Council has also been elected.  They will work with Mrs Davies in promoting all things eco, and I'm sure will be involved with the new outdoor area at Glasdir.

Cross Country – The event has been postponed until Sept 29th.

Book Fair – As part of Roald Dahl week, there is a special book fair in the hall for you to browse a range of texts and purchase if you so wish.

PTA – A PTA meeting will be held after school on Tuesday in the Infant Classes.  All welcome – familiar and new faces at 3.30pm.

Wrestling – Please see the attached poster for details on a forthcoming charity event held here in Ruthin on October 8th.

Home School AgreementAttached, you will find the Home School agreement for 2016-17. This Home-School Agreement aims to ensure that the pupils benefit fully from the provision made for them at school and that parents and members of staff commit themselves fully to support the individual needs of the pupils.  Additionally, pupils can acknowledge their responsibilities and commit themselves to becoming involved in their own progress, both socially and academically.

While all three parties are naturally bound to the commitments listed, we also ask that in order to acknowledge you understand and have read the agreement, that you sign and return the document to school.

AchieversStudents of the Week were Ella-May, Ben, Benjamin, TylerW, Demi and Martha who sadly moves to Pembroke.  Good luck Martha! Certificates were shared with Ella-May and Leo for a fun-run, to Billy, Thomas and Evie for swimming, William for Grade 1 flute and to Matthew for sailing.  Medals were given to Georgia for gymnastics and to Matthew, Tyler, Raif and Sion for cricket (plus many trophies).  Well done to everybody for their achievements.

Dear Parents / Carers,

Welcome to the new academic year; a year in which I'm sure will see us all continue to work together in partnership successfully. I hope you have had a good Summer and have enjoyed holidays, visits and activities. Please take a moment to read the information below, to help ensure that all runs smoothly here from the outset.  I look forward to a busy and successful year here at Rhos Street School and wish the children well as they embrace new challenges and opportunities.

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Croeso i'r flwyddyn academaidd newydd.  Mi fydd yn flwyddyn lle rwy'n siŵr y byddem i gyd yn gweithio gyda'n gilydd mewn partneriaeth er lles ein disgyblion. Gobeithio eich bod wedi mwynhau'r gwyliau. Cymerwch eiliad i ddarllen y wybodaeth isod, er mwyn helpu i sicrhau bod popeth yn rhedeg yn esmwyth o'r cychwyn cyntaf. Rwy'n edrych ymlaen at flwyddyn brysur a llwyddiannus yma yn Ysgol Stryd y Rhos ac yn dymuno'n dda i'r plant, wrth iddynt gymryd mantais or sialensau a'r cyfleoedd o'u blaenau.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

New NurseryIt has been a pleasure to welcome the new group of pupils who have joined our Nursery Class. They have been such good children! Giggles has given them a superb grounding. I hope they continue to be happy as they embark on their first steps here at Rhos Street School. 

Also a special welcome to the 12 new pupils who have joined our other classes across the school.

Summer Reading Challenge - There are still some pupils who have not completed / started the challenge; however it's not too late, as the initiative does not finish for a little while yet. I am very eager for all pupils to complete the challenge, so ask for your support in ensuring that this is the case.  This year, medals and certificates are handed out at the library on completion of the challenge.

Daily MileA new initiative here at the school is 'The Daily Mile' where all pupils pop out during the afternoon and complete a mile as part of our drive to become ever healthier fitter and stronger.  It also adds a few valuable steps onto the counter of those of us who have FitBits!

AchieversOur first set of achievers are Students of the Week Seren, Lily, Morgan, Jocelyn, Joshua, Wil, James and Jack.  Reading challenge certificates were shared with Alice, Emily, Charlie, ConnieD and Tilly.  Charlie received a Ju-jitsu certificate, Georgia and Alexa a swimming certificate, ConnieT, Ruby and Jessica gymnastics awards and Freya a medal for dancing.  Well done to them all.

Lines of Communication – If you wish to receive the newsletter by email, then please let me know.  Parents of all Nursery pupils and new pupils should have received forms for them to specify how they would like to receive the newsletter. Remember that all the school's news and more can be found by logging on the school website at www.rhosstreetschool.co.uk, Up to date snippets and photos, as well as general nonsense can also be accessed by following our Twitter account www.twitter.com/rhosstreet. Photographs of activities can also be viewed on our Flickr page through a link on the websites homepage.

PE Kit and School Uniform - May I please remind pupils that the Rhos Street PE kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts, black/white/grey socks, 'subtly' coloured trainers for Juniors and pumps for Infants.  Black tracksuit bottoms are permitted in colder weather. Please ensure that your child complies with this uniform. Could you also ensure that pupils' names are written/sewn onto school uniform, so that we can return any misplaced garments to the correct owner. Finally, may I also remind pupils that jewellery and nail varnish are not permitted.  Once again, I ask for parental support in ensuring that the pupils comply with these wishes.  Many thanks.

Medical Information – If there is any medical information that you need to share with us regarding your child, then please do so, as a matter of urgency, so that we may update our records.

Personal Information & Contact Details – If you have recently changed your address, mobile telephone number or any other details, could you please inform us, so that we may update our records accordingly.  Many thanks.

A Healthy School - We strive to promote healthy eating and make our school ever healthier.  We do not permit children to eat crisps, sweets, chocolates or biscuits during break times. Snacks offered to them in school will be a range of healthy balanced snacks, as will be the case in Breakfast Club.  Children are also encouraged to bring healthy foods in their lunchboxes.  I'd be grateful for your co-operation in helping us to promote the well-being of pupils in this way. We were delighted to pass our recent Healthy Schools assessment and receive our fifth accreditation. Congratulations to the staff and pupils, to Mrs Liddy for co-ordinating and to the School Council.

Annual Report Feedback Sheet - If you have not yet done so, could you please fill and sign your child's report feedback sheet and return it to school next week. 

Admissions – As we start a new year, the cogs turn in preparation for next year, so if you have a child that will be starting Nursery in September 2017, the applications now need to be submitted.  Also current Nursery parents need to register their children for next year's Reception Class.  Denbighshire now encourage all applications to be completed online.

Year 1 and 2 Reading Club – This restarts on September 11th

Book Fair – From Thursday next week, there will be a book fair held in Class 2 after school.  This will take place for a week.  You can browse and purchase books for your child.

Payment of Monies – Could we request that any monies sent into school are done so on a Monday in a clearly marked envelope.  May I also remind you that dinner money is to be paid in advance.  Many thanks.

Mrs Evans goes out on loan – Mrs Evans has been awarded a secondment from her role in the office to undertake a role as the Headteachers' PA at Denbigh High for the next few months.  We wish her well in her new role and look forward to her return!

Attendance Procedures - As a school, we are committed to working with and assisting parents in promoting the regular and punctual attendance of all pupils.  Denbighshire Council are committed to implementing a consistent county wide policy for attendance.  As a result, from now on, absences for sickness upwards of 10 days will trigger a support process. Absences are of course fully authorised if your child is genuinely unwell. There are also special circumstances for absence, which if appropriate, we are of course happy to authorise. If your child is ill, please inform us on the day by email, or telephone call. If we have not been notified why your child is absent, for safeguarding purposes, we will telephone to confirm.  Each absence needs to be explained in full; otherwise it will go on record as being unauthorised.

Denbighshire has also decided that holiday absence is no longer authorised.  Unauthorised absences upwards from 10 days may invoke a fixed penalty notice.  If you do decide to take your child out of school, please call in the office for a absence request form.

Punctuality – Also, as part of the ongoing priority of improving attendance, we are turning our focus on encouraging parents to make every effort in ensuring their children are punctual and are on the yard to line up at 9am each morning, in order to avoid disruption to theirs and other children's education.  I hope that we can count on your support in achieving this end at the beginning of the new academic year.  I also wish to clarify that in order to ensure consistency, the Denbighshire policy is that latecomers will marked late up to 9.30am.  However at 9.30am, the registers close and children arriving late after this time will be marked absent on the register.

Giggles - Giggles Daycare has availability offering affordable rates of childcare. Giggles is open from 8.30am - 11.30pm at £10 and a full day to 3.30pm for £20.

After School Club is available for all children aged from 3 years at the cost of £5.00 per hour.

There is funding available for 3 year olds to attend for free (conditions apply), to encourage more children to attend pre-school to improve their socialisation and learning.

NantBH and Pentrellyncymer visits – Please ensure that balances are settled and forms filled and returned as soon as possible for the pupils going to Nant BH.  Also, could all Year 4 pupils register interest and pay deposits for Pentrellyncymer by Monday – we can confirm we have sufficient numbers for the trip to go ahead.

Vaccination Forms – Could parents of Reception and Year 3 children please ensure they fill and return the vaccination forms promptly.

​Leavers' Service - My thanks also go to Year 6 for a spectacular Leavers' Service.  Best wishes to them as they move on to Secondary school.  It is always sad to say goodbye but they are more than ready for new challenges and I'm sure they will thrive.  

Some Goodbyes – As well as our Year 6 pupils we say goodbye to a couple of staff members today.  Mrs. Jo Williams departs to take up a post in Ysgol Bodfari.  She has been fantastic here at Rhos Street and given so much of her time to extra-curricular activities as well as to her devoted work in the Reception and Year 1 class.  I wish her every success in her new post.  Mrs Julie Kendrick departs to qualify as a teacher.  She has worked in many classes in many capacities over the years and we will miss her initiative and her accounting skills! Best wishes to her as she undertakes the training course.

​Rotary Birdfeeding Project - Ruthin Rotary Club promoted a birdfeeding project with all local schools this year and a special event was held in Brynhyfryd which was attended by TV star Iolo Williams.  He presented Rhos Street the £100 prize for being the best participating school and also the best individual prize to James Johnson. Well done everybody!

​Reading Challenge - Llinos from the Library Service came and spoke to the pupils about the Big Friendly Read 2016.  This is a Roald Dahl themed challenge this year and some classes have also visited the library this week.  Please support your child in completing the challenge this summer.  

​100% Attendance - Congratulations to the following pupils for having 100% attendance this year!

Nathaniel, Ffion, Christian, AlexanderG, AlexanderJ, Tyler, Matthew, Katie, Reuben, James, Sophie, Nikos, Leo, Hannah and William. Jenson in the Nursery Class also attended each session!

Back to School! – The school will reopen on Monday September 5th. We can't wait!

PTA – At the end of the year – another big thank you goes to the PTA for their efforts this year.  A special thank you goes to Leanne for her work over the years, as she finishes now that Annie moves to Brynhyfryd.

Rhos Street Logo – During the next few months, we will be working with the children in designing a new logo for the school to go on the uniform before we move to Glasdir.  We hope to get the uniform updated by the Easter break.  More news in September.

​Crossing Borders Project - This project came to end last week, with the final performance at Theatre Clwyd.  The children were amazing and looked brilliant acting on the beautifully lit, creative set.  Huge thanks again to Janys and her team and to Mrs Davies for her work with children readying them for the final performance.  

​Class 6 Water Fight - There was bedlam on the field yesterday as the now traditional Year 6 water fight took place.  

​School Council - Thank you to our School Council whose term of office comes to an end.  They have led on many initiatives this year.

​Eco Council - We are also grateful to the Eco Council for their work.

Dear Parents / Carers,

We're nearly there.  Three more days are left, before the pupils have a chance to recharge, reflect and look forward to their next phase of education, whatever and wherever it might be.  I've been hearing about lots of exciting destinations for holidays over the next few weeks and I'm sure everybody is going to have a lovely time.

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Rydym bron yno. Bydd y disgyblion yn cael cyfle i edrych yn ol ac ymlaen at y cam nesaf yn eu haddysg, beth bynnag a lle bynnag y gallai fod. Rwyf wedi bod yn clywed am lawer o gyrchfannau cyffrous ar gyfer gwyliau yn ystod yr wythnosau nesaf ac rwy'n siŵr bod pawb yn mynd i gael amser hyfryd.

Yours sincerely,

The Railway Children – Year 5 have the honour tonight of performing in the esteemed Emlyn Williams Theatre at Theatre Clwyd, Mold.  They will present the third act in Janys Chambers' production of the Railway Children.  This afternoon they will have a technical rehearsal, followed by a dress rehearsal, before the final performance later. Good luck and 'break a leg'!

Huge congratulations to him!

Poppy Parade - The Poppy Parade that marched from St. Peter's Church to Ysgol Brynhyfryd was a very poignant walk.  Some of our pupils joined, carrying the poppies they had made in a recent workshop.

2016 Ruthin Olympics - Class 1 launched this 'special event' this week with flags, flames and lots of enthusiasm!

Payment of Monies – It would be really helpful and we'd be really grateful if you could ensure that all outstanding debts are settled on Monday, so we can get everything sorted, cleared and banked by the end of term.  Your cooperation would be very much appreciated.

Rotary Club Bird Feeder Initiative – An event attended by TV star Iolo Williams, will take place at Brynhyfryd on Tuesday and some Year 5 and 6 pupils who took part, will attend.

Giggles' Inspection – Our pre-school group Giggles was inspected last week and once again passed with flying colours.  Congratulations – not that it was ever in doubt!

Dear Parents / Carers,

The end of year creeps ever nearer and we all are frantically hoping we can fit everything in! Tonight we have the Infant Sleepover, so I will try to keep you all informed via twitter how we're all getting on! Year 5 will perform a work in progress version of their play at the end of the day and in the morning Year 2 and 3 pupils will join the commemorative Poppy Parade. And then there's next week…

Annwyl Rieni / Gwarchodwyr,

Mae diwedd y flwyddyn yn nesau ac rydym i gyd yn gobeithio y gallwn ni ffitio popeth i mewn! Heno mae gennym y Gwersyll Babanod, felly byddaf yn ceisio'ch diweddaru ar twitter. Bydd Blwyddyn 5 yn perfformio eu drama ar ddiwedd y dydd ac yn y bore bydd disgyblion Blwyddyn 2 a 3 yn ymuno â'r Orymdaith Pabi coffaol. Ac yna mae wythnos nesaf...

Leavers' Church Service - Year 6 joined with the leavers from Borthyn, Pen Barras and Llanfair in St. Peter's Church last Friday, to take part in a Leavers' Service which was a very interactive affair!  They got to work in teams on a range of activities in what was a lovely community event. Thanks to Rev. Stuart and his colleagues and also to the Mothers' Union for their kind book donation.

Class 1 Trip - Reception and Year 1 went to Byd Mari Jones, in Bala. They took part in a range of activities, making stained glass windows, dressing up as characters from the story and visited the grave of Rev. Charles. They even saw Mari Jones' Bible! The children were a credit to the school.  Big thanks to all the parent helpers for their support and help on the day.

Tag Rugby - Year 4 spent a great afternoon at the Rugby Club here in Ruthin on Monday, taking part in tag rugby activities delivered by students from Ysgol Brynhyfryd. They had their lunch and a play in the park and were very tired on their return to school.  Thanks to Jim Salisbury for facilitating the session.

Karate Session - Another opportunity Year 4 have recently been provided with, is a special karate session which was kindly delivered by Karen Campbell.  In one session, she taught them some sequences which they learnt and performed to a high standard.  Thanks to Karen for her time.

Crossing Borders - It's been a very industrious week for Year 5 as they have been preparing, practising, designing and making for the Theatre Clwyd performance at the end of next week.  Props, costumes and actors will hopefully all be ready to provide parents with a book in hand performance in the hall straight after school tonight.

Internet Safety - An information session on internet safety has been organised for parents and members of the school community at 5pm on July 12th at Ysgol Brynhyfryd.  If you are able to attend, I'm sure it will prove very informative.

Poppy Parade - Participants are asked to assemble in the area beside the flats at St. Peter's Church (the old school house) at 10am. I'd be grateful if they attended wearing school uniform.

​Year 6 Trip - Year 6 have been very busy over the last few weeks, with assessments, tests and various activities, so the opportunity to blow off some steam was embraced with open arms as they went on a laser combat.  They had a fantastic time, were praised for their behaviour and Mr Davis also got the chance to take revenge on a few individuals!​

Leavers' Blessing – Year 6 attended the Leavers' Blessing at St. Peter's Church this afternoon, in conjunction with other schools.

Crossing Borders – The rehearsal week for 'The Railway Children' takes place next week.  The Year 5 will children will need to work especially hard to learn their scripts and parents and relatives are invited to a 'book in hand' performance of the script after school on Friday next week in the hall.  Please make sure you have also booked your tickets for the performance at Theatre Clwyd on the evening of July 15th.

​Year 2 Trip - Year 2 also had their trip this week, taking part in a range of activities at Loggerheads Country Park.  They had a great time, behaved impeccably. I'm sure one of the memories they'll always remember is when they got to play in the rain.  Mrs Liddy said it was a special moment watching them!
