Week ending 29th September 2017

Dear Parents,

I cannot believe we are at the end of September already!  This week started with Mr Lambden and I taking nine Year Five and Six children to the Madejski 4G pitch for a football tournament.  We had a great day; the children played with great spirit and determination and we won one of our matches! Unfortunately Mr O'Reilly is currently unable to work due to an injury; I am sure you will join us in wishing him a speedy recovery and we look forward to his return.


Staff and children alike enjoyed wearing PE kits all day and getting into the spirit of National Fitness day.  The Pulse 8 Gym Instructors were brilliant with the children and the exercises had us all worn out!  They were impressed with the fitness of our children which is something we are incrediblly proud of.  The photographs this week are all sporty ones.


The School Council have had their first meeting and are launching into a STOPTOBER campaign!  Please join us raising money for Cancer Research whilst helping yourself by stopping something for the month. If you would like more forms, spares are available from the lobby.  Please encourage family and friends to join us in supporting this very worthwhile charity.

It has been such a pleasure seeing the children working so hard and making progress in their learning.  We are looking forward to sharing with you how well your child has settled in during the Learning Reviews next week.  The October Learning Review is an opportunity for you to learn about your child as a learner, books will not be available.


Next week is a busy week with Learning Reviews, Harvest Church Service and a Year Three/Four Football Tournament at Reddam House. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 


Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
