HARVEST FESTIVAL Tuesday 25th September 10.30am St John's Church, Pewsey ~ Everyone Welcome
The School Council
On Saturday 17th March, Mrs Gilbert accompanied the School Council at the Pewsey Parish Council Community Event. We were very proud of how smart our councillors looked and how well they behaved. We listened to how hard the Parish Council had been working this year to make Pewsey a great place to live. We were especially interested to hear about the new refurbished play parks, the Bee Road from Pewsey to Malborough and the new Health and Well-being Centre. We also enjoyed a nice piece of cake and a glass of squash at the end! Representatives from the Parish Council will be coming to one of our School Council meetings in May and we have been invited to see how they run a full council meeting in the summer term.

Making slime, melting chocolate, experimenting with popping candy and much more - a great way to start 2018!
LULWORTH COVE AND DURDLE DOOR
Years 5 and 6 started their Coasts topic with a very sunny trip to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. We saw lots of different coastal features and the children enjoyed sketching Durdle Door. We were very lucky with the weather and some children described this trip as "the best trip ever!".
On behalf of the whole school, the School Council would like to say a huge thank you to Pewsey Parish Council for the fantastic bench that they have kindly bought our school. The School Council wished for a new bench to use at playtime and lunchtime and now their wish has come true!

Year 3/4 Trip to Sevington Victorian School
On the 17th and 24th January, Year 3 and 4 visited Sevington Victorian School and experienced first-hand what school was like for children in Victorian times. All the children and staff dressed the part in Victorian style clothing, as well as taking with us our authentic ‘hunk of bread and piece of cheese’ wrapped in brown paper for our lunch! The day was designed to mirror that of school children from the Victorian time period and the children had the opportunity to experience a number of lessons including using inkwells and dipping pens.
The children learnt a lot from their day and I hope the trip was memorable for the children!

We are delighted to have been given a 2016 local award for our successful ‘disadvantaged pupils’ (those pupils for whom we receive the Pupil Premium).
Mr Sam Gyimah MP the Undersecretary of State for Childcare and education said in a letter to Mrs Gilbert: “The reason you have been selected is that you are one of the high achieving schools in the country in terms of the attainment and progress of your disadvantaged pupils since 2011.”
We are thrilled with the great efforts made by all those involved and the recognition that this has now received. His full letter can be read here.
Be the Best you can Be!
We were very excited to meet Mike Mullen who is a former world BMX champion. He held an assembly where he talked about all of the obstacles that he overcame to become a world champion. He then visited each class where the children asked him questions about his life.

Bronze Bike It Plus Award
We are very proud to have been awarded a 'Bronze Bike It Plus Award' for all of our cycling, scooting and walking to school efforts this year. Every Wednesday the School Council have been encouraging pupils to travel to school in a sustainable healthy way. They have been recording this and there have been weekly prizes awarded in Celebration Assembly. With the help of funding from Sustrans the School Council has successfully provided scooter storage for those children travelling to school by scooter. The scooter pod has proved so popular that Mrs Gilbert is thinking of buying a second one!

We would like to thank Dr Bike and Jo from Sustrans for all their help and support this week. A staggering 49 bikes were brought into school to be looked at by Dr Bike. In addition to this, the Key Stage 2 classes were all shown how to repair a puncture and they all practised changing a tyre.
