Newsletter 18 - 27th January 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

A huge well done to the youngest members of our School Family this week, Reception Class, for their wonderful Class Assembly.


There has been a lot going on in school this week – Y4 and Y5 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Ufton Court on Tuesday to further explore their learning about the Romans and The Saxons. Experiences like this really help to cement knowledge in the children’s memories about their learning so that they are able to recall it at a later date.


Reception Class and KS1 also enjoyed the production of Burglar Bill from the visiting theatre company this week.


The Digital Leaders visited St George’s school yesterday to take part in an EdTech Google Festival. Very inspiring!


We look forward to welcoming Year 5’s parents to their class assembly next Tuesday 31st January. You’re welcome to come into the hall from drop off via the back hall door on Church Road.


Enjoy the weekend,

Mrs Griffith

Digital Leaders Attend Google Festival

This week, our Year 6 Digital Leaders attended a Google Festival of Technology at St George's School in Ascot.  Here are their highlights:


At St George's School we used these really cool VR goggles and we could choose what world we were in.  At snack time we were allowed to have squash and chocolate chip cookies.  Issy


At our Google Festival we tried four new gadgets:  Cue Robots, VR World, cracking codes and history powerpoints.  This is so we can raise funds for updated technology to learn about at our school.  Sylvia


The Cue Robots were really fun.  We got twenty minutes per activity.  The Cue Robots had different sensors and there were different mazes for us to program our robots.  The four robots names were Berners-Lee, Turing, Shanan and Bubble.  They were really amazing and quite fun to play with.  Then we programmed each robot to move forward, backward, left, right or even turn around.  It was awesome!  Paige


Quizzes and Puzzles - This was our first challenge.  We had to fill out a quiz on our computers and after a couple of questions we got a number.  These numbers were a code for the padlock on a bag that we had to open.  We finished just in time and inside the bag were sweets!  It was great fun.  Emily T

Photo ID Required to Vote from May 2023

The Electoral Commission are running a new public awareness campaign, highlighting that voters in England will need to show photographic ID in order to vote at polling stations going forwards, starting with the local elections this May.


May's elections may seem a distant thought, but it is worth voters taking note of the changes now, and checking you have appropriate ID. That way, when polling day arrives, all you will have to do is remember to bring it along to the polling station. If you don't have accepted photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a Voter Authority Certificate.

Please see the Electoral Commission’s website for full details.

Please spread the word.
