This half term is whizzing by…I can’t believe there’s only another two weeks left before we break up for a week! Autumn is well and truly here now and the leaves have started falling all around school. I hope you all have a great weekend – see you next week!

Harvest Celebrations

We have held our harvest service in school this week. Every class shared something, either a poem or a song, and David Nichol from St Peter’s came and took part with us also. Year 6 shared some prayers, which can be seen at the end of this newsletter.

Thank you 🙏 to everyone who has sent in donations for the foodbank. We are always humbled by your generosity. If you haven’t sent anything yet, and would like to, we are still collecting up until Monday, so please send something in with your child after the weekend if you wish. The ParentMail we sent out with the suggestions for each class is below.

Forest school (Ruth Hill)

Year 2 had their first forest school session and the heavy rain showers didn’t put them off! It just made for better mud. They enjoyed noticing the Autumnal changes in the woods and collected leaves and drilled holes in conkers to make a wreath for their classroom. The mud kitchen was a hype of activity using lavender in their creations and they also discovered that crushing conkers makes really good natural soap. Around the fire pit and sheltered from the rain, they enjoyed hot choc and popcorn and listened to the story of how Robin got his red breast. A great start to Forest School at Pedmore. 

If anyone would like to come and enjoy forest school and be part of our volunteer team, then please get in touch with the office. Thank you.

Parking Around School

Please be considerate when parking around school, either for dropping your child off or when collecting them at the end of the day. Please don’t park across the drives of any of our neighbours. Also, please DO NOT park on the zig zags outside the gates at the bottom of the field. This is extremely dangerous and compromises the safety of our children.


A reminder of who to contact if you have concerns around a child. If you have any concerns, please contact one of the school staff below:

Mr Dunn (Designated Safeguarding Lead)

Mrs Dowen

Mrs Robbins
