Dear Parents,


Christmas play rehearsals are now in full flow and it is lovely to see the children working so hard and so well together.  The tickets have now gone home and we look forward to the performances.


The Christmas fair was such a success and I thank you for supporting the event.  The atmosphere in the hall was fantastic and the money raised will provide wonderful enrichment for our children.  The FOFSA team worked so hard to ensure the event was such a success and I thank everyone who helped before, during and after the fair.  Events like these always lead me to feel incredibly grateful to be the Headteacher of our school.


On Wednesday I led our Achievement assembly based around sport.   The girls who attended the Madejski tournament last Friday proudly shared how much fun they had and their team spirit was clear for everyone to see.  The Chaffinch children who attended the Sportshall athletics were proud to hear that they came 8th out of 17 schools.  That included them coming first in the chest push and the 4 lap relay.  The Goldfinch children who attended the same event on the Wednesday, came 7th out of 20 schools and came in the top 5 places for 6 of the events.  

Today we have another 17 children attending football matches at Aldrynton Primary School and I wish them luck.


This week our Goldfinch class have attended a Cyber crime theatre production held at Lambs Lane Primary School; the children enjoyed the afternoon it reinforced some key safety messages for the children to remember.


Mrs Weston has kindly summarised the end of term dates for you and this has gone home as a paper copy; these dates are also on the calendar.  We are aware of how busy the diary gets at this time of year and we are incredibly grateful for your support.  Please can I take this opportunity to remind all parents and visitors to the school that we need to show great consideration to our neighbours.  Please do not block or partially block any driveways as this causes great stress and frustration for residents.  


The children are all excited that tomorrow is the 1st December; I wish you a great weekend.


Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
