Learning in P4B

‘We have gone out to the woods at the school and collected sticks for our showcase on Tuesday – we have turned them into magical wands’ Leah C

‘We have been painting characters from Harry Potter. My team, Team Voldemort created the character Hagrid’ Lewis

‘We have been making our own shields and we also created bigger shields for the houses of Hogwarts’ Rebecca

‘We were word building with playdough, hamma beads, magnetic boards and pasta shapes’ Caitlin E.

‘In outdoor learning we were creating bridges out of yellow boxes and wooden planks. We were also trying to get the ball past some tubes we were holding and eventually we bet our score’ Eli

Dyslexia Information Morning

Friday 12th January

On Friday 12th January 9am – 10am, our Educational Psychologist Penny Rackett will be holding an information session in school for parents/carers about dyslexia. This will include information on what dyslexia is and the new process by which we identify dyslexia. She will also be available to answer any questions that you may have. This is open to any Pinkie parents / carers who would like to come along to find out more about dyslexia. Hope to see you there!





Buddy was left with us on Monday. Santa left a letter to explain that he is a mischievous elf and he hoped the boys and girls would be able to show Buddy how to behave responsibly and how to be a good friend.

We’ve had an eventful week with Buddy;

‘He’s been painting and a little bit naughty with our letters.’ Ben

‘He’s playing with our toys.’ Elisabeth

‘He mixed up our playdough!’ Madison

‘He was using our tinsel as a zip wire.’ Sonnie

As he continues to watch us in our classroom, acting sensibly, playing, sharing and working hard, he will learn how to be just as responsible as we are…we hope!

Have a lovely weekend 🙂

News4U – Episode 10 The Christmas One

The actor interview

The whole school seems to be rehearsing for a variety of different plays, show and ‘productions’. The News4U crew went out to interview actors. We also provide a very useful guide to all the information about parties and other activities. This week’s pod is produced again by the very able Katie with her assistants, Eve and Edmee.
Can we also make another appeal for spare Lego to help P3a build a life size castle…please help.
Also we would like to remind everyone about the food bank donations. Thanks.

The pod is taking a break for a couple of weeks. Thanks again for listening. If you like it, please tell us and others.
