Dear Parents and Guardians, 


This week has been such a celebration. We have celebrated our new ballcourts and trim trail along with our supportive community. We have celebrated sporting successes in both PE testing and in a netball tournament tonight. Most importantly we have celebrated our learning and it has been a pleasure to see such resilience, stamina and enjoyment across the curriculum.


On Wednesday, we proudly opened our new ball court and trim trail. This was an opportunity to thank the Diocese, the Parish Council, Wokingham united charities and Fofsa for their contributions. Mr Cundy cut the ribbon and our Vice Chair of governors, Nigel Kennington also joined us. Thank you to those who came. 


Our Year 2 children have completed their SATS booklets over the month and have worked so hard and with enjoyment. Their smiles were even bigger when they had lots of treats on Wednesday including an ice lolly on the field.


Today, 10 girls played in a netball tournament and played so well. They have 2 weeks of preparation! We were the only school to take two teams and we were proud of all of them. I can see a netball team developing next year and maybe even a parent team (let me know if you are interested).


Before I wish you all a happy half term, I wanted to mention an event we are planning for 13th June. We are organising a Colour run for the children which will be to raise money for charity. I will share more information immediately after half term but I thought the children would be excited to know now. The Colours used are soluble so should wash off easily and on the day the children can wear light clothing to make the experience even more fun!


Thank you all for your support. I thank all the staff too and wish them and you a good break. We have had such a busy half term and I know next term will be just as memorable.


With kind regards 

Jacquie Vanstone
