    Academic Success 2017-18

    As we approach the end of the academic year it is time to reflect on the school’s academic success for 2017-18. Since September 2017 the children have displayed a positive attitude to learning and throughout the year their resilience and ability to reflect on their learning has developed. During the assessment window in the summer term the children rose to the challenge and believed they would succeed. Everyone in the school community is very proud of our children and they deserve the results they achieved in their end of year assessments and SATS tests. Well done

    Singing Picnic

    On 19th June the Pyrcroft School Choir joined six other local schools for a day of singing and laughter at the Runneymede Leisure Grounds.  Twenty-six of our finest singers travelled by minibus to play singing games with specially trained vocal coaches before performing two songs – ‘We all live in a Yellow Submarine’ and ‘By the Rivers of Babylon’ -  to the other participants.  The day finished with all six schools coming together to perform a new song that was learnt on the day.  The children had a fantastic time and we hope to repeat the experience next year!

    Pyrcroft's Got Talent

    Thursday, 24th May saw Pyrcroft Grange transformed into a fever of anticipation for our first inter-house talent competition.   Children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 worked with friends in their houses to put on a variety of different acts.   We were treated to magic shows, singing, jokes, acting, dancing and instrumental performances.  Mrs Nardoni and Mrs Wand had the difficult task of deciding on a winner and, after much deliberation, awarded joint first prizes to Victor Campos and Georgia Barwell for two beautiful solos.  Second prize went to Jessica Gardner and Emily Struthers for their carefully choreographed dance routine and third prize went to Ethan Batchelor for his performance on the piano.  Our Music and Drama captains helped organise the show and were fantastic role models to our younger children. House points from the half term were then...

    Bessie the Bus

    Bessie the Bus

    Reading for pleasure is really important as “Great readers become great leaders”.  At the start of the spring term a double decker bus arrived at Pyrcroft Grange Primary School and parked up on the playground. The journey to the playground was an adventure with the bus getting stuck in the mud!!! The transformation of the bus then begun with chairs being removed, tables for guided reading fitted and book cases fixed to the floor in the bus. The whole school community were behind the transformation of the bus to a library bus by donating picture and chapter books. The school council led a vote in their class to decide the name of the library bus and Bessie was the winning name. Each day children board the library bus and share the enjoyment of reading books independently and with their friends. This amazing asset to the school learning environment would not have be...

    On Monday 26th of February we started our English week. In our lessons we looked at different texts, designed book covers and created bookmarks. On World Book Day we came dressed as our favourite book characters and the teachers performed Roald Dahl's Three Little Pigs from Revolting Rhymes, which everyone enjoyed. Our English week finished on Monday 5th March with a Key Stage 2 inter-house spelling competition.  Children from across the Key Stage were chosen to represent their houses in a hotly-contested spelling challenge.  Earth clinched victory from Saturn in a thrilling final and were awarded 50 house points for their efforts.    Well done Earth!
