Dear Parents,


This week has been a wonderful celebration of school sport. Mr O'Reilly organised and led a World Cup, a sports afternoon and then Sports day. The children have loved it and being able to stand back and watch our Sports Leaders and Sports Captains leading has been wonderful. They have been organised, encouraging and clear in their explanations.

I would like to acknowledge the enormous support shown by parents, governors, FOFSA, staff and the park staff in the preparation for and the running of Sports Day. It is a fantastic occasion and I was determined not to cancel due to good weather! With all the support, the children have experienced another great afternoon of sport; well done to the Blue team for winning, Jess and Sam looked so proud holding up the trophy.  The Sports Leaders were yet again so helpful and responsible and helped to make the afternoon such a success.


It was such a pleasure to welcome next year's Reception children for their first visit. They settled so well but I am unsure who was more excited, them or their buddy.


The reports were given out yesterday and I hope you and your children are proud of them. Staff have worked incredibly hard and we would be very grateful to receive your comments on the enclosed form.


Next week is another busy week. We are looking forward to a Governor day on Monday. The Governors will be receiving some training from Wokingham during the morning; they will then be with the children over lunch and in the afternoon.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Open Evening. Mrs Anders, along with other parents, will be leading the French Cafe in the hall. You will be able to look at classrooms and your child's books. Please join us between 5pm and 6.30pm.  We are hoping to be able to sell the Christmas Play DVD on Monday evening; the DVD costs £5; all profit will go to school.  We are incredibly grateful to Pulse 8 for providing us with the opportunity to make and sell a Christmas Play DVD.


I wish you a wonderful weekend and England a win on Saturday.

Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
