Good afternoon,


We have had such a busy week and I have had the pleasure of seeing lots of learning and proud children.  I have seen Rosefinch fully engrossed in their role play and playing so well together.  Bullfinch have been working incredibly hard on their writing based on the exciting bubbles they created last week. One bubble adventure finds them in Paris which sounded wonderful to me!  Today Chaffinch had an art lesson with a twist which was them drawing and painting from under the table.  Certainly funny to watch but I was impressed to see their final pieces and it will definitely be a lesson they remember!  Goldfinch looked so confident today in tennis, they were aware of their positioning and proud of strong shots and passes.  Our Year 6 children are noticeably calm and focused for their upcoming SATS.  I hope this continues and they feel proud of themselves for wanting to achieve their best.


Today a group of Year 4 and 5 pupils attended a Wokingham tournament, they worked hard and had a great day.  They didn't get through from the group stage due to goal difference but they played really well in the friendly matches after. Thank you Mr O'Reilly.


We have so much to look forward to next week.  We have a visitor from Warren Lodge with Chaffinch on Monday afternoon.  On Wednesday, we will be restarting our whole school run now the weather is slightly better and on Friday Chaffinch parents can join the children for the multisports session after school.  We will send out the link to sign up on Monday.  It is starting to feel almost summery and certainly ready to make the most of it.


I wish you a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you next week.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
