Good afternoon,


Another brilliantly busy week!  It has been so hot in school but the children and staff have managed well with lots of people busy trying to keep our plants watered.


On Tuesday, Chaffinch enjoyed a visit to Moor Green lake.  I was only there for a short amount of time but it was delightful to see the children immersed in nature and learning.  Thank you to everyone who supported the trip, especially Jonathon Gan who spent his birthday helping!


At this point in the year the staff are busy submitting data to Wokingham and writing reports but whilst all this goes on in the background, the school calendar is busier than ever.  I have created a diary sheet with all the dates on until the end of term which I will share on Monday by email, hopefully it will help us all!


On Monday we are having a non uniform day in support of the Church fete which is Saturday 1st July 1pm - 4pm.  Please send your child in mufti in exchange for a bottle for the tombola.  Mrs Fox will be in the front carpark to collect the donations.  

Bullfinch, Chaffinch and Goldfinch (Goldfinch have an extra session) will have PE on Monday so please make sure they are in trainers and suitable clothes for that.

We thought a sunny mufti day would be a perfect opportunity for fofsa to hold an ice pop sale after school so we are looking forward to that as well.


It was so hot this afternoon at the Goldfinch multisports parents and children club.  It was great fun and won by Max and his dad.  Thank you Mr O'Reilly.


From next week, we would ask for children to come in their sports coloured t-shirt with their red shorts for PE (not applicable this Monday due to non uniform).  This will make it a lot easier as we prepare for Sports day. We can then organise the children knowing their colour at a glance.  If you have any questions, please just ask.


I wish you all a good weekend.  Next week our solar panels will be put up, please take care near the front of school if there is more work traffic than usual due to this work.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
