Good morning,


I am looking forward to another exciting week at school.  Last week I had the pleasure of spending a lot of my week in classrooms seeing the children working confidently, enjoying challenge and most importantly enjoying their learning.  This coming week, I will be doing the same and I look forward to joining in with their learning.


On Wednesday, I took four children to Bohunt Wokingham for a Kurling event.  This was our first time participating in this event and it was great fun.  The children represented the school brilliantly. They performed to the best of their ability and demonstrated wonderful behaviour.


Our Grounds day after school on Friday was a great success.  I am so grateful to all the parents, children, staff and governors who gave their time. It has made a huge difference and was lovely to work together to enhance the school grounds.


I know our Year 6 pupils are very excited about their week at PGL Liddington from Monday.  They will have a wonderful time and I look forward to visiting them on Wednesday evening.  My thanks go to all the staff involved including Mrs Lawrence for the enormous admin job!  The week away will provide the children with the opportunity to challenge themselves, support each other and be independent. I wish them great weather and a fun week.  Whilst they are away, I know our Year 5 children will step up as the oldest children in school.


I wanted to draw your attention to our calendar with all diary dates showing.  We have now confirmed a date for our Harvest church service (Tuesday 3rd October) which I will email out information to you on Monday with a list of possible food bank donations.


I wish to finish my update with the wonderful news that Mr O'Reilly and his wife are expecting a baby in October.  We wish them well at this exciting time.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
