Penshurst Primary School

WEEK 20 - Friday 9 February 2024

We have reached the final week of this half term, and it has been busier than ever! 

On Twitter, you will discover a wide variety of exciting activities including: Nursery pupils comparing the size of objects relating to Goldilocks and the Three Bears; Reception pupils creating Transient Art using loose objects; Year 1 creating Positive Affirmation posters during their Wellbeing Afternoon; Year 2 learning all about health, the positive effects of exercise, and testing what it does to your heart rate; Year 3 using Digimaps to explore human and physical landmarks; Year 4 creating incredible tie-dye masterpieces in Art; Year 5 engaging in activities that explore what is fair and unfair / kind and unkind, and demonstrating how to empathise with others; Year 6 becoming news reporters and composing a report about natural disasters in the local area; and our Gardening Club working incredibly hard to prepare the raised beds for planting new seeds 

Our Year 6 Parent Information Evening will take place on Monday 19 February at 4.30pm. If you have a child in Year 6, you will have already received notification of this, but we will also send a reminder during the half term break. During this session, you will be given essential information about the statutory Year 6 SATs tests, details on how we prepare for this in school and advice on how you can support your child through this period.  


  • The current cycle of after-school clubs is now finished. New clubs will begin after half term (week commencing 26th February). Please note there will be no clubs in the week commencing 19th February 

  • We have had a report of head-lice in Year 4. We would advise that you check your child’s hair should you have any concerns and treat accordingly. 

I look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday 19th February!

Head of School
