Santa brings gifts for all

Dear Santa!  Thank you for coming to visit us on our last day of term today at Provo Primary School:

Thank you to the Fire Service for helping Santa to get to our school.

The fire truck was big and red, just like your sleigh

The truck made a big noise.

I hope you weren’t too hot in your suit and boots.

Your beard was as white as snow and tickled.

I love the present that you gave me.  It was a book.  Thank you.

Thank you for the candy cane.

I hope you have a safe journey back to the North Pole.

Love from all the children at PPS.

Three cheers to our Year 2 parents too for baking goodies and offering refreshments for Santa, teachers, guests and onlookers throughout the morning.

On behalf of all the staff at Provo Primary, we would like to thank everyone for all their support this term, for their kind best wishes, cards and thoughtful gifts.

In return we wish everyone a happy holiday season with all your friends and family.  See you next year!

A Celebration of Colours and Thanks

The Preschoolers have been learning about colours and how they see them in their everyday environment. We initially focused on the colours of autumn leading up to the Thanksgiving Holiday and our own holiday here in the Turks and Caicos, “A Day of Thanks”.

The children have enjoyed experimenting with colour mixing and were amazed when they saw the magical results (like discovering that red and yellow makes orange).  The children enjoyed looking at some photographs of trees with autumn colours projected onto the big whiteboard.  They also enjoyed making their very own fall trees using tissue paper.

On our Day of Thanks, the children celebrated colours again, wearing black and white like the pilgrims of long ago.  They also wore hats they had made themselves.

Good luck everyone with tonight’s show

Good luck tonight to all our Year 1-6 children with the first night of their Peter Pan musical show- ‘Pantastic’!

Here they are at their dress rehearsal on Wednesday, which was enjoyed by our Year 5 friends from the Ianthe Pratt Primary School.  Tonight it will be dark and they’ll be performing under the sparkle of the stage lights, with character make-up to add to their amazing costumes.  It’s going to be…FANTASTIC!  Enjoy the show, everyone!

Jingle Jam was a jingle of fun

Santa 🎅🏻 Selfie at The Jingle Jam! What a fabulous turn out! So much festive cheer, and lovely to see all the little ones having such a jolly good time. Thank you so much to everyone that helps me to make this possible every year! 🎁

Santa delivers some special books to our friends on South.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated books for our Pen Pal Schools on South Caicos, Calvery Christian School and Iris Stubbs Primary School. Altogether we donated 12 big boxes of books – the kindness of our children is quite overwhelming.

Earlier today, Santa flew over to South with his two elf helpers from Year 5, Miss Laranda and PPPA rep, Kelsey, to deliver the books. Looking at the first photo we’ve seen, it certainly looks like it has been a fun time.  We look forward to seeing more photos and hearing more news about their special delivery on their return!

We decided to collect books when we were sad to hear that many of the schools’ books had been damaged by the Hurricanes.  The children looked on their own bookshelves and choose books that they had enjoyed that they thought others would too.

Thank you everyone.  Thank you Santa for taking time out of your busy pre-Christmas preparations to help us, and thank you to Sail Rock for helping us with transporting everyone, and all the boxes, over to South.

What does 100 look like? Year 2 can show you!


Is it possible to build every number from 1 to 100? How would we do it? Which numbers are the hardest to make? Which number would need the most bricks?

Earlier this year, Year 2 investigated how we can represent numbers with Cuisenaire Rods. At first, children added huge rows of the white “1” bricks until, eventually, they lost count of how many they had. It was hard to know the difference between 42 and 43 – those numbers are so similar! [Read more…]

Forging Friendships with Schools on South Caicos

Recently, we the Provo Primary School School Council had a super smashing time in South Caicos. The main purpose of our trip was to visit two schools that had been hit quite hard by Hurricanes Irma and Maria – The Calvary Christian School and The Iris Stubbs Primary School.

At school, we had been shown photos of the devastation that had occurred to the classrooms and school buildings. Having seen the damage, we wanted to help in some way.

We wanted to connect with the children and offer a hand of friendship from one school to another.  So, it was decided that we would start a penpal outreach programme with the two schools.
