Visitors in school
Teams Willow and Fir have had some special visitors in the past two weeks.
We have been finding out about The history of clothes and how clothes are made.Mark and Sam came to talk to us from ‘York Museums Trust’ and we had great fun trying on clothes from different eras.
Yesterday Sue came to show us how to make clothes and all about sewing and knitting.
We can’t wait to have a go making our own clothes!

Our new timetable of after school clubs has started and we have lots of children participating in clubs varying from mindfulness to football. Unfortunately, some of the clubs have limited spaces and in these cases we make sure that those children that haven’t attended that club before are short listed.
In the last few months, we have had recurring issues with head lice at Lakeside Primary Academy. Unfortunately, some of the children still have eggs and live head lice now. To prevent re-infestations, we would like to ask you to check your child’s hair again and treat any lice or eggs you find.
There is a range of products available for all ages and skin types.
Safety at Lakeside
During this half term we have lots of events taking place – encouraging everybody to put their safety first.
The years 5 and 6 kicked it off with their bike ability training – this is a four week course covering levels 1 & 2. All the children are having a great time and learning how to stay safe when riding their bikes.
Also, on May 3rd 2018 we had a ‘Be internet legends’ assembly for children in KS2. This was delivered by the Google presenting team in partnership with parentzone . The aim of the lively and interactive assembly was to raise awareness of internet best practice.
On June 11th and 18th the years 3 and 4 will have the opportunity to take part in pedestrian training, where the children will be educated on staying safe as a pedestrian.
On the 21st and 28th June we will be welcoming back the NSPCC to do ‘Speak out – stay safe’ assemblies for the whole school and workshops for children in team Elder, Chestnut and Hawthorne.
Bike to school
With Bike to School Day next week, Wednesday 9th May, it would be a great opportunity to leave the car at home and cycle to school (and work).
Royal wedding tea party
On Friday 18th there will be a special lunch available to celebrate the royal wedding.
- Assorted sandwiches
- Cocktail sausages
- Vegetable crudités
- Pizza squares
- Tortilla chips
- Melon & grapes
- Royal cupcake
Please note due to this special lunch there will be a menu change for Thursday 17th May.
Thursday 17th May
- Fish fingers and chips
- Tomato and basil pasta
- Chocolate cookie and milk
Also, to celebrate this momentous occasion we are all going to be dressing up as a wedding guest for the day. Please can we ask that the children do not come to school in their best outfits or inappropriate footwear as they will still be having outdoor play.
There will also be a ‘wedding card’ competition. We are asking children to make the newlyweds a card at home and bring it into school on Friday 18th May. There will be one winner per class and Hutchisons, our school caterers, will be providing the prizes.
Quad kids, make it to the finals
On Wednesday Mr Sellers took 12 children, from years 3 and 4, to the Vale of York academy, to compete against other schools in a Quad kids tournament. The children had to take part in 4 events – 400m run, 50m sprint, vortex howler throw and a standing long jump.
The results were very close but Lakeside Primary Academy were announced the winners and will now go on to represent York at the North Yorkshire finals in July.
Mr Sellers and everybody at Lakeside are extremely proud of all the children who took part and Mr Sellers would like to thank all the parents who came to offer their support.
Lakeside is a nut-free school
We do have several children in school with serious nut allergies, therefore can we please ask all parents to be extra vigilant when sending in snacks and packed lunches.
