Paxcroft Primary School


Welcome to Term 6 and the "Departure for the Hunt"!  Our final term has started with a bang with the fabulous trip to the Longleat.  All the children were superbly behaved and learnt many things about tapestries and how they are made.  Please look at the photos below to see what we got up to.


This term is always very busy.  We have Sport's Day, a trip to Trowbridge Museum, non uniform days and lots of other activities planned so please keep an eye on the bulletin to see what is happening when.  If you do have any queries then of course please let us know.

Welcome to Term 5 and Dr Who Goes Wild!  The topic this term has been chosen by the children and the title was invented by our very own Katie.   

Palmer Garden Centre

Happy New Year!


This term we are beginning our new topic; "How Does Your Garden Grow?"  At the end of last term, the children planted daffodils in preparation for a flower sale to  support the Marie Curie Cancer Charity which will be happening later this year.  They have been very excited to see them starting to shoot after the Christmas holidays!


In addition to this, during week 2 we will be visiting a local garden centre to see how they care for the plants and the variety of plants which can be bought there.  The children will then be asked  to design their own garden as part of this topic.


Other activities will include;

  • Looking at the adverse effects of drought
  • Studying the artist Georgia O'Keeffe
  • Understanding the life cycle and needs of plants for survival.


Towards  the  end of this term, we will also begin auditions for the spectacular Year 3/4 production which will be taking place before Easter.


This term is always busy but a lot of fun!  If you have any queries then please do let not hesitate to pop in and arrange a chat.

Christmas Crafts

Welcome to Term 2, the Stone Age and the Iron Age!


Again we have many exciting activities planned.  Already the children have had a visit from a specialist on fossils.  We will also be going to see the pantomime in December as well as making Christmas crafts for the Christmas Fayre.


We look forward to a busy few weeks!

Welcome to Swift Class! What an exciting term this is.

Can we remind you to keep on reading with your child at home and aim to change shorter books at least once a week.  Thank you.
