Summer Term… Counting Down – 27 school days to go!

Hilbre Island

Unfortunately we have had to postpone our visit to Hilbre Island due to the bad weather this week. Hopefully we can re-arrange it before we finish in a few weeks. We are just waiting to hear back from the Ranger to see when the tides are out during the school day. Nevertheless we have continued working on our Coast 2 Country projects and combined with all the work Year 5 have done it’s shaping up to be a wonderful collaboration.

 

Light Cinema

We had an amazing morning at The Light Cinema on Thursday, it was great being able to spend time with our Reception Buddies. We had lots of comments from the organisers about how amazing our movie was, how wonderful the children were dressed and how well behaved they were.

End of Year Events

It’s a busy past few weeks as Year 6 at Pensby Primary. Below is the link to a letter that was sent home today. On online consent form for the Treat Day to The Hive will be sent out on the coming weeks. We also need a few photographs of each Year 6 child from when they were younger to use in a short film at the Leavers’ Ceremony. These can be sent to school to be scanned or emailed direct to the school office.

Leavers & Hive Treat Day 2019

Visiting Author

We sent this morning with Sue Hoffmann, a local school teacher and author. She read extracts from her first book ‘High King’ and set us to work creating new creatures, describing their feature and drawing pictures of them. After break we learnt about a dragon in the story and wrote about our first encounter with a dragon. Sue did a fantastic job of inspiring us to write. Signed copies of her book High King are available to buy for £6.50. Cash can be brought into school by next Wednesday. She also showed us her new book ‘Timothy’s Gate’ which is for sale for £8.99.

Summer 2nd Half – Final Countdown…

‘KEY DATES’

Just 7 and a bit weeks to go…

This is shaping up to be our busiest half term yet! We spent today researching Hilbre Island as part of our Coast 2 Country project. We discussed some ideas for an art exhibition and we need a few things to help us along…

  • Empty, clean plastic milk/drinks bottles and tops
  • Empty, clean glass jars (no labels)
  • Empty, clean yogurt pots
  • Quality Street tubs (the large plastic hexagonal ones) empty or full!
  • Old newspapers (please check the content)
  • Any clean sand/seashells/driftwood

We have a whole host of great ideas on how to use these items to create some fantastic artwork. When it is complete we will invite you in to have a look!


Wednesday 12th June: Hilbre Island – Day Out

On Wednesday 12th June 2019 Year 6 will be joined by Year 5 for a special trip to visit Hilbre Island as part of our Coast 2 Country project work we have begun today.

We will be guided on the day by the local Ranger who will walk us across the safest route to the island and guide us around the many wonderful features and activities.

It is about an hour walk both to and from the island so will be a challenging day (mainly for the staff). 

Children will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear for the walk. Wellies, walking boots or old trainers would be ideal.

The cost of the trip is £3. This is to be paid via TUCASI.

Please Note: You will need to provide your child with a packed lunch for the day.

Please complete the consent form that has been emailed to you.

The children have been invited to come ‘dressed to impress’ as it is a red carpet event.

Please Note: We will be returning late for lunch so your child will need to bring a packed lunch into school on Thursday 13th June 2019.

Please complete the consent form that has been emailed to you.

Charity Day and Oaklands

Charity Day

What a great way to finish for the half term – Charity Day! Year 6 put on an amazing morning of activities for all the children to enjoy and raised a fantastic £561. They should be very proud of themselves.

After tidying up we walked down to St Michael’s Church to enjoy a chippy lunch and some fun games. We then presented Mr Putman with a cheque for £561 form the children at Pensby Primary School.

Oaklands

A leaflet was sent home today detailing all the key information for the upcoming residential trip next half term. You can download and view a copy of the updated booklet by clicking the link below:

Oaklands INFO BOOKLET FOR PARENTS 2019
