Penshurst Primary School

WEEK 9 - Friday 10 November 2023

Welcome to a brand new half term – many would argue the best time at primary school due to the lead up to Christmas. This week has been a busy one and it doesn’t look like we are taking our foot off the pedal next week either!  

Year 6 started their bikeability training, which will finish next week. The learners have been extremely productive and industrious in the classroom, and you can see some super examples of this on X (formerly Twitter) if you follow @PenshurstSchool. The PFA also held a Monster Mash disco and it was, as always, very well attended. 

Next week, (Monday 13th) the PFA will hold a film night for Years 3 & 4, on Thursday, Year 4 parents are invited in for the Multiplication Workshop to go through everything you need to know about the statutory multiplication tables check that Year 4 pupils take each year. Also on Thursday, our Year 6 pupils will take part in a Histrionics workshop, and then to top it off, Friday brings us Children in Need. Your child is invited to dress in bright clothes, spots, or Pudsey inspired clothing, to raise money for this wonderful cause.  

Polite reminder: 

PE kits should be brought into school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday. We have an increasing number of pupils who are not bringing theirs. Please check your child’s bag before coming to school on a Monday morning. Thank you. 

Looking ahead: 

It is the Brake Road Safety week commencing 19 November, to coincide with this, and because the nights are drawing in, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Road Safety Team are offering to give out some bike lights, to our pupils who cycle to school, to keep them safe. This will take place on the Wednesday morning that week. 

Have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Mrs Preston

Head of School
