Penshurst Primary School

WEEK 37 - Friday 5 July 2024

It’s been all about the events this week! 

On Wednesday, we held our PFA Summer Fair, which was once again a huge success. I would like to thank all of the families that came to support the school. I am sure you enjoyed the gunging of the teachers as much as the children did! Maybe next year we can shake it up a bit and ask for volunteers for ‘Gunge the Parents’ too? Answers on a postcard please! I would like to say thank you to Mr Jennison for being a great sport and allowing people to throw wet sponges at him with Mr Thorp! You are a star! 

Also, this week, our Year 4 learners enjoyed an exciting trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the children represented the school so beautifully. One of the best things about working in education is when children make priceless comments like the golden moment from this trip - ‘Isn’t nature beautiful. I think this is my favourite day now.’ We are so proud to be able to make positive memories with our fantastic learners. 

By the time you read this, we will also have rocked out at our Rocksteady concert – another wonderful opportunity for children to showcase their talents. 

On Monday and Wednesday of next week, we are holding our Progress Evenings. If you are unable to attend either of these days, your child’s class teacher will contact you to make a telephone appointment at a mutually convenient time.  

Also next week, we will be holding our annual transition days in which learners will spend time with their new teachers. These will be Wednesday to Friday. I hope that your child has a wonderful time and is buzzing for the new year when they leave on Friday. 

For posts on the events above and more, please head over to X. We are delighted to see that more and more people are accessing this and supporting our learners. 

Have a wonderful weekend. I will see you next week as we head into our final fortnight of this academic year!
