Dear Parents and Guardians,


We began this week with the most beautiful pink sky which led us into our focus  around being thankful for our world.  I am sharing some responses and thank you messages from the children which I hope you enjoy.


The impact of Covid on schools is tremendous and whilst we had another positive case this week, I know we are doing all we can to keep safe.  Today I am emailing out information from Wokingham regarding staying safe over half term and next week I will email with our school arrangements to keep us as safe as possible on the return to school.


This week Chaffinch had their river trip to Rushall farm.  The trip was a great success and was filled with so many learning opportunities.  I would like to thank the staff and volunteers for making the trip possible as well the children who represented our school beautifully.  


I have enjoyed teaching Bullfinch this week.  The children have been delightful and it has been lovely to be part of their class for two days.  This afternoon, it was lovely to see Goldfinch at their Olympic games which looked like great fun.  Rosefinch have made their fruit salads this week which I know they loved making.  Such a busy week full of wonderful learning experiences.  I hope the staff now have a good rest next week, it is so deserved.


I look forward to seeing you all on our return from half term on Tuesday 2nd November.  We have NSsport in for the holiday club which I know many children are looking forward to and you can also book for the Monday 1st Inset activity day.


I hope you remain well and safe and please make sure you contact me as soon as possible regarding any positive Covid cases within the household.  Please email and I will respond.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
