Year 1 Trip to Portchester Castle

31st March 2023

We are very excited to announce as part of our “Turrets and Tiaras” topic this half term, we are planning a trip to Portchester Castle on Friday 31st March. The children will travel by coach, which will be fitted with seatbelts. All children will require a packed lunch (no chocolate or sweets). As a school we are considering our environmental impact and are therefore asking that these lunches are sent into school using a recycled brown paper bag which will be provided for you the day before the trip. This enables all rubbish to be thrown away. Please ensure there is a drink included. This can be accessed throughout the day and should be in your child’s named clear plastic school water bottle (metal bottles are not suitable in school). For trips only, it is acceptable for this to be juice or squash (no fizzy drinks). We shall be leaving school by 9.15am and return in time for children to be collected from their classrooms as usual. They will not need any spending money and will not need to bring their book bags to school on the day. The children need to wear school uniform with sensible footwear and a coat appropriate for the day’s weather. Read More »

Years 1 & 2 to PJS - £5 Project

22nd May 2023

Years 1 & 2 – Monday 22nd May In the week after SATs, the Year 6 children at Padnell Junior School will be planning their £5 project. Each group of children will be given £5.00 by the school as an initial investment. The children will then create a business plan and will have to keep accounts for their own fundraising activity. The activities will then be carried out during break time of the week commencing 22nd May 2023 for Padnell Junior School children. The activities may include: selling refreshments, games, raffles, and any other money-making ideas. At the end of the week, the original pot will be returned to Mrs Luker. The accounts will be totalled and the Year 6 children will vote on how they wish to spend this money as a reward for all their hard work leading up to SATs. We would also like to extend this opportunity to children in Years 1 and 2 at Padnell Infant School. Therefore, on Monday 22nd May any infant children in these year groups, wishing to have a go at the activities will be brought up to the junior school playgrounds by their teachers. Each activity will cost between 10p – 50p per go and it would be fantastic if your child could bring in some change (not notes) on that day in a named envelope. Thank you for your support. The Year 6 Team Read More »
