Ballet Boyz at Pewley

22 May 2015

Adam & Bradley from Ballet Boyz who performed at G live this week visited PD to show us some dance and do a Q & A about boys being dancers - what a good job it is, how fit, strong and flexible they have to be and how much fun it is!

Some of our boys and girls who do ballet with Kate are shown with Adam & Bradley.

Books from FOPS

19 May 2015

The children at Pewley were thrilled in assembly on Monday morning to receive a huge new pile of reading books. These have been bought for the school with a kind and generous donation from FOPS and with further money from parents that was raised through a 'Book Drive'. The books have been labelled inside with the name of the family that donated them. Look out for the special stickers when you read with your child. A huge thank you to our generous parents and to FOPS from all of us at Pewley.

Our Election took place on Thursday and the winners were The Green Party led by Michael (6A).

Below are the pictures of the children voting, marking off polling cards, checking the seals on the boxes were intact and counting the votes. The voting took place across both sites.

The other candidates were as follows:

Freya (6M) - Liberal
Abi (6M) - Conservative

We are incredibly proud of all of the candidates and their teams, and the children who helped to make sure the election itself ran so smoothly.
