Pewsey Primary School wins local award in the Key Stage 2 category of the 2016 Pupil Premium Awards

Pupil Premium Awards 2016

 

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.

 

 

Dr Bike helps to repair 49 bikes!

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.  

Pewsey Primary School gets £3,000 of new reading books! 

 

The Marlborough and District Rotary Club kindly donated some funds to supplement the money that the PTA have raised to purchase new reading books for Key Stage 2. The children are really excited by the new reading books and are keen to read them.

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.

Dramatic coastlines, wild animals and ancient landmarks  – all in a day’s work for Pewsey Primary!

 

The natural world has been the focus for pupils throughout the school this month, and the first term of the 2015/16 academic year got off to an exciting start with trips to Hengistbury Head, Marwell Zoo and Avebury.

Years 5 & 6 travelled down to the Jurassic Coast in Dorset to visit Hengistbury Head, an area of international archaeological importance and conservation area.  This trip supported their topic of ‘Coasts’ by studying the landscape, its habitats and how these are effected by the sea.  It also links in with their Science curriculum around ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’.  The children enjoyed studying the wide range of plants and wildlife, travelled on the land train down to the sand spit (a beach landform) and took part in a scavenger hunt.  Click here for more information and photographs from their action packed day.

Years 3 & 4 took a tour of some of the spectacular ancient landscape we are so lucky to have in Wiltshire. In support of their ‘Ancient Wiltshire’ topic they began their day with an invigorating walk to the West Kennet Long Barrow, admired the impressive Silbury Hill and enjoyed an informative afternoon at Avebury where they learned all about the purpose of the stone circle, its significance and just how old it is.  A visit to the Alexander Keiller Museum to look and handle some of the artefacts excavated at the site helped the group to understand the value and merits of primary and secondary sources of information.  Year 3 are looking forward to using their visit to help develop their ‘Mystery Story Telling’ and shape poetry, and Year 4 found it helped them with their investigations into rocks and fossils in Science.  Read more about their interesting day here.

Meanwhile, Years 1 & 2 enjoyed a full day out at Marwell Zoo in Hampshire, where they were lucky enough to see Snow Leopards, Tigers, Meerkats and Cheetahs to name just a few.  The trip supports their Science topic which is looking at different animals in the world.
