The VLOG is back! Here’s Mr Baines and a student from Simmonds class.

Celebrating Dyslexia Awareness Week 2023

October is the home of Dyslexia Awareness Week and at Pinewood we know how important this is for our students and millions of people around the world, young and old.

Ms Burnside produced this video a couple of years ago now about how dyslexia affects people and how we help students at Pinewood who have it.

World Book Day 2023

World Book Day is a well-loved annual event, and this year has been no exception!

Pinewood has been filled with colourful clothing and creative props. Pupils and staff alike dressed as their favourite book characters, and spent the day immersed in different literary worlds, with class activities ranging from stop frame animations, to creating class books.

Pinewood continues to instil a love of reading in our young people, and it has been so rewarding to see our keen readers in action.

Delayed Santa Dash!

Congratulations to all our Santa Dash runners; we really did go the extra mile in today’s fun run!  With the weather resulting in 2 previous attempts being re-arranged, today’s conditions were perfect!  Pupils throughout the school lined up across the playground and field in anticipation of the start whistle.  Participants walked or ran the course, many dressed in Santa Suits, Santa Beards or Santa Hats!  The atmosphere was magical!

The 30-minute event resulted in Pinewood pupils dashing 1022 laps, raising a whopping £1,391.62 for Pinewood’s PTFA.  Amazon vouchers were awarded as class prizes for:

Class Cox Class with the most laps – short course
Castellon Class with the most laps – long course
Class Keller Class with the most sponsorship
Class Beckham (Mrs Klein) Best Santa Suit
Class Grey Thompson (Zoe) Best Santa Hat
Class Beckham (George) Best Santa Beard
Class Keller Best Medal Design (for December 2023)
Class Ali (Jay & James) Best effort

A big “Thank You” to you – the PTFA – parents, families and staff.  And, of course, to all our pupils.  It was lovely to see so many receiving certificates and medals for their participation in such a fabulous event.

Save the Date: The next Santa Dash is on: Friday 1st December 2023.

With thanks,

Mr Goss (KS3 Class Teacher – Group ‘Wonder’)
