Year Two Inter-School Twinning Activity Day 


All the children in Year Two will be involved in a twinning day this Thursday, 22nd March 2018, with Year Two children from Overthorpe Academy.  We are looking forward to hosting the children from Overthorpe here at Pentland for the day, taking part in a range of activities together and making new friends. 

Parent Consultation Evening

Wednesday 28th March. 

Appointments can be made from Monday 19th March and time slots will be available   between 3.10pm and 7.30pm. 

This is a very valuable opportunity to share information about your child’s progress and attainment in school and we are always very pleased to see the vast majority of parents attend. We look forward to  seeing you again on this evening.

We have also arranged for a re-run of the

Online Safety Briefing  which was held earlier this term

Times: 5.45pm and 6.30pm

The parents who attended then found it very useful, but we know that not everyone could make it that time, so we hope you can benefit from it running again on this evening.

The session is run by an IT specialist, who will share lots of information about the dangers that can be out there and the mechanisms and controls that can be put in place to help keep your child safe online.  

Year 2 Parent SATs meeting


Year 2 Parent SATs meeting will be held on Wednesday 21st March at 5pm - 5.45pm in school. This meeting aims to inform parents about the upcoming SATs. Please come along to talk to the year 2 teachers and find out more information regarding the Year 2 SATs


Mother’s Day Lunches

As the invitations were unable to go out as planned last week, we are having to change the dates from those previously advertised on the website.  These lunches are for children

from reception class upwards, ie. those who normally have a school lunch.

The lunches will now be held on:


Tuesday 20th March—Reception Class parents

Wednesday 21st March—Year One parents

Friday 23rd March—Year Two parents and Sibling groups


Letters will be sent out in the next couple of days.  This is always a lovely occasion, so we hope as many mums as possible can join us that week.

British Science Week

W.b. 12th March 2018



We will be celebrating British Science Week in school by focusing on the theme of Outer Space.


We are very excited about having a mobile Planetarium  in school on Tuesday 13th March. All the children will get a chance to learn about space journeys, planets and stars by going on a special journey through outer space themselves!

We hope you will join in the learning experience by taking part in some special homework challenges that week.  More information to follow.
