RM Assembly – People Who Help Us


Reception M celebrated ‘People Who Help Us’ for their class assembly. The audience watched as the children ‘walked to school’ and came across a postman, doctors and nurses, firefighters, police officers and a lollipop man. Well done, Reception M. You performed brilliantly!

Year 5 Visit to Kew Gardens


On Tuesday, Year 5 had an exciting trip to Kew Gardens. While there, the children took part in a brilliant workshop exploring the relationship between art and nature, which involved creating their own representations of a plant variety using oil pastels, pencils and sgraffito sticks. The children thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with these different media. Next on the list was a vist to the Hive, the Treetop Walk and the Palm House, as well as a walk around the impressive array of plants. Everyone enjoyed the trip immensely.

Year 3 – Portals to the Past



Year 3 travelled back to ancient Egypt on Monday. The children were able to consolidate all of their knowledge about life as an Egyptian. They even measured each other using royal cubic fingers as the measurement, just as the Egyptians did all those years ago! The children impressed the presenters and made use of their knowledge of daily life in ancient Egypt in a fun and challenging quiz. They were also able to use their understanding of the mummification process and learnt even more whilst watching a gory performance of a king’s mummification.

Time for Tea in Nursery


This week the children in nursery were looking at the nursery rhyme, I’m a Little Teapot, and what better way to finish off the week than having a tea party? It was a very civilised affair, with children sitting behind their decorated teapot placemats, enjoying the cucumber sandwiches and decorated cupcakes that they had made. All accompanied by a lovely cup of tea!

3D Virtual Viewers Take Learning to Another Dimension 


Year 5 children have been test driving our new 3D technology. They were surrounded by a pride of lions and took a trip down the world’s largest water slide to help spark some wonderful, creative writing ideas. Watch this space…

Year 4 Production

We are looking forward to the Year 4 production of Olivia next week. All tickets requested have been given to the children. If you require any further tickets, please email the office. On both evenings, children will need to arrive at school at 5:45pm in order to prepare for their performances. The children should be collected at 8:15pm.

Clubs will still be running on both evenings, but it is recomended that the children in the production go home at 3:30pm. As the children will have late nights on Wednesday and Thursday, they may come into school later on both Thursday and Friday, but should arrive no later than 10:30am. Any siblings may also be brought in later; however, this is optional.

Reminder – PHS is a nut-free school

We have some pupils at school who have a severe nut allergy. Please do not send any snacks or birthday treats containing nuts into school.
