News & Key Dates
WELCOME TO OUR NEW TWYNHAM PRIMARY PARENTS
As our current Reception year children start their transition into Year 1, we extend a warm welcome to the new children and parents joining us this September. We invite you all to follow our social media feeds, where we post regular updates on activites, trips and events taking place throughout the school year.
A reminder to all parents that our school uniform is changing in September - see our Uniform & PE Kit page for full details. Please bear this in mind when puchasing new, or second-hand uniform for your child over the coming months. Our uniform stockists, Stevensons, will have all of our new uniform available from 12th June. Anything not currently in stock will be available to pre-order.
We would like to thank those parents adhering to our policy regarding use of the school car park. Can we also remind everyone to show consideration for the safety of our children and our neighbours by parking courteously and in sensible locations (i.e. not near bends, in front of driveways etc.). Wherever possible, we would encourage children to walk, cycle or scoot to school, helping us to reduce the volume of traffic around the school site and keeping our children active and healthy.
LIVE & INSPIRED
Twynham Primary children enjoying a fantastic, inspirational afternoon being entertained by Joe's Jazz.
Well done to the children who competed in the recent Iford Tennis Tournament against other local schools, with some fantastic rallies earning us a respectable fourth place position.
On Wednesday this week, we participated in Quadkids held at Twynham Secondary School. The event saw several first place positions from TPS in the track events and more. Further details to follow once the full results are posted. Watch this space...
YEAR 6 BRIDGE BUILDING
Some impressive engineering skills being demonstrated in year 6's bridge building challenge this week!
Our whole school and class photographs are scheduled for the first day back after half-term. Please ensure that your child is in full school uniform, including their blazer, when they return to school on Tuesday 6th June.
Twynham Primary PTFA
Our fantastic PTFA, run by an incredible bunch of volunteers, raises much needed funds for the school through its fund raising events.
A particular highlight of the school year is our Summer Fair, which is only possible with the support of volunteer helpers. Without support from our school community, this event cannot go ahead so, please, if you are able to help cover some of the stalls throughout the day, or can support the event in any way, get in touch: email@example.com
Are you a parent with a small business (or someone that makes and sells anything)? If you'd be interested in having a stall at our Summer Fest, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org

Well done to the Woodford staff team - worthy winners of our PTFA Quiz Night!
DICTIONARIES FOR LIFE
A huge thank you to the Rotary Round Table for the generous donation of 'Dictionaries for Life', which they kindly made to Twynham Primary School this week .
WALK with WILDLIFE FIVE-DAY WALKING challenge
Thank you to all of the children who participated in the WALK with WILDLIFE challenge this week - it was great to see so many of you using alternative forms of transport to get to school.
