• HTPD GREAT MASQUERADE BALL - TICKETS ON SALE FROM 8.40AM ON FRIDAY 2 FEB

HTPD 12/5/17

12 May 2017

Dear Parents,

It’s been fantastic to see children really “learning to live” this week. Our Year 5 children are enjoying a residential visit to Brenscombe Farm outdoor activity centre near to Corfe Castle in Dorset. I popped down on Wednesday and chatted to them about what they’d been finding out about themselves as they tackled the abseiling off Dancing Ledge on the Jurassic Coast, or braved the high ropes adventure trail. So many of them talked about how their friends’ encouragement to keep going had proved invaluable, or how they’d felt God’s reassurance and help when they needed it most.

Meanwhile, Year 6 were working hard in their SATS tests. They really impressed us all with their resilience, determination and effort. They definitely deserved their swimming trip to the Lido today! Like Year 5, they have also supported each other and worked together to be the very best they can be. Friends are so important when you face a challenge.

As well as that, the sandcastle building at Pewley has been a tremendous team effort. I’m not sure how many sandcastles were built in total, but again the children’s determination to make a difference was great! Thank you so much for your generous support in raising funds for the playground project. We’re looking forward to Sunday’s Ground Force day at the infant site when we’ll start to get ready to build the sandpit; hope to see you there.

With best wishes
Clare

Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers
The deadline is approaching for us to return all the vouchers that our families and friends have collected. To make sure that HT & PD are able to order as many extra pieces of equipment for the children as possible, do please check in your wallets and purses, coat pockets and kitchen drawers for any vouchers that you may still have. Every one counts!

 

INFANT

Ground Force Day, Sunday 14 May (anytime from 10.00am to 3.00pm)
We would love to see you at the Ground Force Day on Sunday. The aim of the day is to clear up and start work on enhancing the play opportunities at Pewley. We plan to do this by creating different play zones and more social spaces. As part of the project, the children have been building sandcastles this week to raise funds for the new sandpit.

On Sunday there will be a skip on site for all the rubbish, but it would be very helpful if you could bring some tools, such as: bush cutting equipment, secateurs, cordless drills, hammers, screwdrivers, wheelbarrows, general gardening tools, gardening gloves etc.

Fluffy Friday, 26 May
Fluffy Friday choice forms should be returned by Monday 15 May. Please also bring in £1 (either with the form or on the day) to help cover the cost of materials.

Run to Sochi
Following our successful Run to Rio last year we are now running to Sochi (venue for the last Winter Olympics) and back, a distance of 1930 miles. Classes spend some time each week running laps of the field; so far we have collectively run: Week 1 – 167 miles, Week 2 – 441 miles, Week 3 – 499 miles. We will keep you updated on progress.

Data collection sheets, Years 1 & R
Children in Years 1 and R should have brought home a data collection sheet this week. Please check the information (particularly the contact details), make any changes, sign and return to the school office by 19 May.

French Club
The last French class for Years 1 and 2 will be on Wednesday 12 July (to make up for the missed class this week). Year R French Club will finish on 5 July.
