Dear Parents,


It is hard to believe that we started the week with heavy snow! The children were not able to go outside during breaktime and lunchtime but other than that the learning and trips went ahead as planned.  I was incredibly grateful for the help of Daryl Baker in clearing the front carpark and pavements which made it safe for everyone.  I have decided to remove the snow feature on our website in hope that there is no more for us to contend with!


It was a difficult morning for all staff on Monday as we discovered a problem with our computer system.   The staff have all been calm and patient as we get back to normal with the wonderful  support of our IT support provider.  We are still doing our best to resume a normal service and thank you for your understanding.


Sport Relief has been celebrated and supported through assemblies, a danceathon and a fitness marathon.  We had hoped to run a mile straight away on Monday morning but that was not to be!  Thank you Mr O'Reilly for organising the events, the children have loved it and we have raised £90.05


Mrs Dodds along with school council organised a Bake off yesterday.  This  was to raise money for a Rainforest charity.  The school smelt wonderful and the children enjoyed all aspects of the event from baking to marketing.  Thank you for your support, we raised £74.20


Today 8 girls played in a football tournament at the Madejski 4G pitch.  They had a great time.  They came third in their group and got through to the quarter finals.  Well done girls, thank you Mr O'Reilly and Mrs Arlon.


WASMA takes place this weekend; I am really looking forward to attending.  I know I have written this over the past few weeks but I cannot thank Mrs Gan and Mrs Coulson enough for their time and dedication.


As we approach Easter there are many events we hope you will be able to support both next week at school and over the next couple of weeks at our church.


Have a lovely weekend and to all the children attending WASMA, have a wonderful time, I know you will make us all very proud.
