Good afternoon,


I hope you are well.  We have finished the week with a day filled with spottiness for Children in Need.  Thank you for your support.


I have spent a lot of this week showing prospective parents for September 23 around the school.  It is such a pleasure to lead these tours and also see the learning throughout the school.


We have not only held an achievement assembly this week to celebrate our children but we also enjoyed and benefited from an assembly led by 4 Goldfinch pupils.  They led with enjoyment, confidence and commitment and we look forward to more groups leading in the coming weeks.


The Christmas songs have now started and there is such a wonderful buzz around school with Christmas play excitement!  It is such a special way to bring our whole school together and with the past 2 years being different, I think the children feel even more excited than normal to have the opportunities presented to them.


The Christmas fair is a matter of weeks away and I wanted to ask if any parents work for companies or have family/friend links that would support our school either through matched funding or with an auction item to sell.    The fair is always fantastic and we really appreciate all your support.


Our Football girls had a match this afternoon at Loddon Primary School and had an amazing 4-0 win with Rose scoring a hat-trick.  Well done girls, you play with a fantastic attitude. We are so proud of how many girls in our school love football and we would like to purchase a new kit for them.  This may be something a company would sponsor and again, if you know of anyone we could approach, please let Mr O'Reilly or me know.


Before I wish you a lovely weekend, I would like to remind you of the Digital Wellbeing evening that we are hosting on Wednesday 23rd November at 7pm.  Digital wellbeing is something that impacts us all and having a representative from Wokingham to support parents with this is a wonderful opportunity.  If you use facebook, please add your name to the poll so we know how many parents to cater for as their will be tea/coffee and cake.


I hope the sun continues to shine over the weekend and I look forward to seeing you next week.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
