Good afternoon,


I hope you are well.  It has been wonderful to have the opportunity to chat to so many of you this week.  Learning Reviews add a lot of work and time for staff but we value the time with you and thank you for your support.  We hope you found them useful, along with the report.  The Spring term is always an exciting one to see progress in learning and I hope the children enjoyed showing you their books.


On Monday, I had the pleasure of attending a badminton event for a group of Chaffinch children. It was great fun and the children represented the school brilliantly.  They came 3rd overall.


The sports events continued with the next matches for our girls and boys.  Both matches ended 2-2 and lost on penalties.  Both teams should feel so proud of how far they have come and in our eyes they deserved to win!  Thank you Mr O'Reilly - this is the furthest we have ever come in Finchampstead school football history!


On Thursday, Mr and Mrs Fox come to school for a special assembly with the children.  Each week Mr and Mrs Fox send an assembly video which we enjoy on a Friday.  Having the 'live' version was a treat and I thank them both very much.


Next week is busy with another sports event on Tuesday and World book day on Thursday.  For World book day, we would like to invite parents in at 9am for a World book day assembly/quiz.  Parents can also join us at 2.45pm to come and share some books in classrooms.  If you have any questions, please ask. Siblings and other family members are welcome and you are welcome to attend either or both and we understand some families may not be able to attend either.  The children can come into school dressed up as a book character and we can't wait to see them in costume.


I must finish by fulfilling my promise to share the name of our new guinea pig.  Moo's new friend is Barney!


I wish you all a lovely weekend, hopefully with drier weather.

With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
