We are proud to say...
A message from Mr Barton
Just as in primary schools across the country, our Year 6 children have been working particularly hard on their tests this week. I have been very proud of the effort I have seen them putting into this work. We won't have the results of the tests until July, but we can be confident that each child has been very well prepared in order to produce their personal best. I would like to thank Mr Miller and Mrs Croucher for all their work with the whole class, teaching Year 5 and Year 6 their different parts of the curriculum and focusing on what individuals have needed to learn in order to prepare Year 6 for the tests. The Year 5 children have been extremely well behaved, working in the other two classes during the tests this week.
I also want to send best wishes to all the children in Kingfisher who are going on Camp next week. You will be missed here but I am sure you will have a wonderful time. For those staying with us, I know that the younger children will really appreciate having you around in their classrooms. It will be a good opportunity for you all to learn alongside each other.
Enjoy your weekend,
Fathers Day, Sports Day and a Special Celebration!
You may well already be aware that we will be having a Fathers Friday Celebration Lunch on 16th June. All our male parents and carers are welcome to join us and if you haven't yet let us know that you would like to come, please remember to order food for your and your child by 6th June. Please note that we also need to know the numbers of children having school meals on that day even if parents and carers are not coming, so that we can ensure the right quantities of food are ordered.
In addition to the lunch, Friday 16th June will also be the date for our Sports Day. This will take place on the sports field next to the Memorial Hall from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. This year, a celebration will be organised after the sports to say 'Well Done' to the whole school community for our successful Ofsted inspection. This is something that the Board of Governors were keen to suggest at their meeting last night, and more details will follow shortly. They are very proud that Pensford is officially a Good School!
Now that we are seeing the sun quite often, and it is stronger as we move through May, please can all children bring a hat to school to protect them from sunburn when learning and playing outdoors. Suncream should be applied before school on sunny days and parents are welcome to send in extra suncream for children to apply at lunchtime. Younger ones can be helped with this, of course.
Next week's film will be:
Tickets are available through the school office as usual.
