Ponsbourne St. Mary's Primary School
It is a pleasure and a privilege to be Headteacher of Ponsbourne St. Mary’s School. We are a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School, which was founded in 1847. As a small village school, we are fortunate to be able to get to know our children and families very well and visitors always remark on the friendly and inclusive atmosphere. Our children are taught in small mixed-age classes.
We benefit from being situated next door to Ponsbourne church and attend a service there every Monday morning. The Christian values of Respect, Love, Forgiveness, Trust, Peace and Wisdom are central to all we do. Our grounds are beautiful and we make excellent use of our forest area in weekly Forest School sessions, run by a qualified leader.
We are always delighted to show you round. Please contact us to make an appointment.
This week at School
|Nursery made the most of Messy Play at Nursery Club and explored using cornflour and water to make gloop.|
|Reception have been learning their number bonds to 10 and have enjoyed using Numicon to help them with this.|
|We were very excited in Explorers class to harvest our first potatoes this week.|
|In Pioneers, we have been learning about perpendicular and parallel lines. We made a real-life Venn diagram to help us identify perpendicular and parallel lines in 2D and 3D shapes.|
|This week Discoverers have been thinking about friendship in circle time. Children, as ever, were thoughtful and reflective in their contributions. Discussion points were:
What makes a good friend?
Should we judge people by their appearance?
Why do we sometimes fall out?
Is there a difference between bickering and being mean?
|Our WW2 topic homework continues to come in and there has been some very well-researched, moving work. Thank you. (The cakes and biscuits have been particularly well received by all!)|
