A message from Mr Barton

As the school year has come to an end, I thought I would keep my message very brief and visual this week. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is a picture for each of the months of this school year.  I hope that they bring back some happy memories.

Have a great holiday with your children.  We look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday, 5th September.

Mr Barton

September - Roald Dahl Day

October - our new library

May - It was finally official, and we were flying high! June - Exploring Wild Things Farm
July - Our final Forest School to Hidden Valley was a treat. Goodbye Year 6, and Good Luck!

Has your child had a good year?

We have had a wonderful year teaching each and every one of the children at Pensford.  Thank-you to all the parents who have so far responded to our annual year so that we can get your perspective too.  The governors would love you to spend a couple of minutes answering a few questions by clicking here.

Many thanks for all your support and useful comments.

Dragonfly Common

Dragonfly class will begin September with a new and interesting area of the classroom.  The class have discussed what this shared space could be called.  They recognised that the word 'common' described it well as it is a space that the whole class can use, with different ages using it at different times.  This shared space will include an artificial lawn, and we are very grateful to Vision Garden Design for providing this for free.  Watch this space for a photo of the area when it begins to be used in September.

Donations of all shapes and sizes...

We are very grateful to Catherine Hunt, who has recently stepped down from the governing body having served the school incredibly well over a long period of time.  As well as her dedicated work as a governor, she has sparked an idea off recently through the simple act of donating some unwanted printer cartridges to the school. We were able to sell these and use the money to buy some books for the library.  This has made us think that if anyone is having a clear out over the summer and wants to donate salable goods that you don't have the time or inclination to sell yourself, please do let us know.

Mrs Patey would be pleased to hear from anyone who might have something to donate in this way but please do contact her first before bringing any items in.  Thank-you.

Have a great summer!  See you on Tuesday, 5th September.
