Weekly email
Dear Parents/Carers,
 
Welcome back to the last half term of the year. I hope that you had a lovely half term break - the weather was certainly a lot kinder and I am pleased to be able to now remind you all to ensure that your children come to school with sun cream on!
 
Crossing Patrol
Please can I ask that all parents ensure that they leave enough space between them and the car in front of them to allow Jeff, our crossing patrol, to carry out his duties? At times, some drivers are so close to each other that he is unable to step out into the road to halt the traffic so that parents and pupils can cross safely.
 
Sports Days/Sports Week
This half term we will be holding our usual Sports Days for pupils but will not be allowing parents or carers to attend due to our coronavirus restrictions, which will remain in place until the end of the summer term. We will also be holding St. Mewan Sports Week later this month where pupils will have the chance to take part in a wide range of activities and more details will be sent out nearer to the date.
 
Year 6 
We are so pleased that the restrictions this year permit us to arrange some events for our Year 6 pupils, as last year's cohort were unable to have any of the usual end of term celebrations. As well as the planned Activities Week, we are in the process of writing a year book, ordering leavers' hoodies and arranging a series of events for the pupils in the last week of term and will write to parents once we have finalised all the details. 
 
Fun Run
Those of you who have had a long association with St. Mewan will remember our very successful Fun Run events and our last one was six years ago! Hard to believe. This is a sponsored event where children take part in running, walking or jogging laps of the school field to raise money for specific projects to benefit all pupils in the school. This year we will be holding our Fun Run on 20th July and letters and sponsorship forms will be sent out soon. Our aim this year is to raise funds to increase the range of reading material across the school and, excitingly, purchase a whole class set of African drums!
 
Classes for Next Year
Attached to this email is a letter giving details of your child's new class teacher for September and details of transition arrangements. As it has been so long since any parents were allowed into our school, I have included photos of your child's new teacher, as you may not be aware of who they are!
 
Have a wonderful weekend,
 
 
Mrs. Elaine Badger
