Dear Parents,


This week started with Chaffinch experiencing a wonderful India Day. Mrs Dodds had organised wonderful activities for the children; they all looked fantastic and the smell in school was lovely. I have to say, and I know many of you agree, that  Mrs Dodds looked especially beautiful. It was great to have the support of Mrs Fatania.


The children have coped well with the heat especially with so many of the children finding it difficult to sleep. We have planned carefully to keep them as cool and hydrated as possible and we will continue to work with care next week.


We have ended this week with the cricket team losing by only 9 points to Beechwood Primary School which is frustratingly close but also  wonderful to see how much they have improved.


Next week the reports will be given out at the end of the day on Thursday, any children going to Beehive will collect them when they pick up. It is important to note that there will be no Key Stage 2 SATS data enclosed in the report; it will be given out separately once it has been externally verified. It is possible that the Key Stage 1 and Year 1 Phonics assessments will be enclosed with the report but we await to receive information from Wokingham.


Sports Day on Friday will start promptly at 1pm. We would be grateful of any gazebos to protect the children and scorers from the sun. We hope it will be a wonderful afternoon celebrating sport.  A sign up sheet for help is at the front of school.  Please can I take this opportunity to remind you that we need to safeguard the children and this is difficult for staff if Parents/Carers come over to see the children.  I would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.


Monday 9th July is our Open Evening; I hope to see many of you. It is a great opportunity to share learning from this year and also to meet teachers and see classrooms for the year ahead. There will be a French Cafe in the hall and many of our Governors will be in school for the evening.


For the last day of term we would welcome all the children to have a picnic lunch. There will still be an option to have a cooked lunch but I thought it would be a lovely way to finish the end of term.


Thank you very much for your continued support.


Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
