Easter Service

Pupils from Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 enjoyed a short walk to The Abbey Manor Community Centre on Thursday (22nd March) for the Key Stage 1 Easter Service.  Parents were invited to join pupils and staff to enjoy a collective worship filled with song and readings.  Pupils wore Easter hats and bonnets that they had made previously and they all looked fantastic!  A big thank you to all who attended and to Rev David Keen for leading the event.

New School Banner Competition

Our school banner, which was created in 2010, is in need of an update!  Our children take the banner with them to events such as the Year 6 Pilgrim’s Leavers Trip to Wells Cathedral and some sporting events for which they represent the school.
Pupils are being offered the chance to help design a new banner to represent Preston Primary School and what our school stands for (this can include our Christian Ethos, the School logo and name). It would be lovely if you could encourage your children to come up with some ideas. 
The final banner will comprise of a selection of colourful designs, made from elements of various children’s submitted entries.  Mrs Gaylard will then produce the final banner for us to use for future events.
The closing date for designs is Monday 30th October 2017, all entries will need to be submitted by 4pm on this day.  We look forward to seeing the children’s wonderful ideas.

SCHOOL GAMES NEWS

PRESTON WIN TAUNTON SCHOOL TOURNAMENT!                        
A brilliant performance by our Year 4 footballers saw the team win the recent Saints South West Somerset School Games Level 2 tournament held at Taunton School.  Playing a great brand of attacking football, the team swept past Wellsprings School 2-0 in the first round, beat Creech St Michael 3-0, St Michael’s 2-1 and Free Saints 1-0 in the next three rounds and finished with a 0-0 draw against All Saints. Our defence and attack were superb on the day and Harry Todd was Mr St John’s Man of the Tournament for Year 4.

 

Our Year 5 football team also did extremely well. Coming back from the disappointment of a first round loss, they won most of their other matches to come runners up in their group.  Lucas Cawley was selected by the tournament organisers as player of the day for Year 5.

 

All of the players were a great credit to the school showing commitment and skill in every game.

 

Both teams now progress to play the winners of the Devon tournament.  Details about this inter county Level 3 tournament with dates and arrangements will follow soon.  Our thanks go to Mr Dan Watkinson for accompanying us on the day.

PRESTON PRIMARY VISIT YEOVIL TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB

Fourteen of our children were delighted to be guests of Yeovil Town F.C. this September 2017 at the Yeovil v Port Vale fixture. The boys and girls from Years 5 and 6 were thrilled to play a match among themselves on the 3G surface before attending the senior league match to watch the professionals play their game.  At half time our children were allowed onto the pitch and were presented to the crowd. We are very grateful to Yeovil Town F.C and also to Mrs Mills and Mr Flitton who accompanied the Preston Primary players on the day. The event has also enabled us to strengthen our links with Yeovil Town F.C. as part of our School Games activity this year.
