Dear Parents and Carers,
First week back done! It was so wonderful to have all the children in school again. Seeing them re-united with their friends was joyful.
Parent Consultation Evenings
You will have by now signed up to a time to meet with your child’s class teacher for Parent Consultation meetings.
Your child will be bringing home their Spring Interim report on Monday 15th March. The format of the report is different to previous years and will be looking at your child’s engagement with remote learning. Your child has completed a pupil questionnaire about their experience during lockdown and the results will be shared with you during Parent Consultation meetings. This is part of our current whole school focus on pupil wellbeing.
All meetings will be via your child's Microsoft Teams account, unless you arrange for a phone call with the teacher instead.
Any messages from school will be communicated via class email or the office email/text. PTA messages will only be communicated via Class List. This is to ensure that all parents receive all relevant messages and don’t miss out on any vital information.
Red Nose Day
Friday 19th March is Red Nose Day. The children (and staff) are welcome to wear their Red Noses (and T-shirts/headbands) with pride! We are not asking for any further donations in school. If you’d like to purchase any items please see here.
Have a lovely weekend,
Home CV test kits are now available for collection for anyone living with school age children. Please see here for information about where you can collect your test kits locally.
Change to School Email Address
From 30th March the current school email address will no longer be in use. The new email address which can be used from now on is firstname.lastname@example.org
After School Club - Starts Next Week
After School Club at the Village Hall will start again next week from Monday 15th March. Please direct queries to Sharon Thompson at the Sunningdale Pre School on 01344 623331.

Key Stage 1 Bubble
At the end of last week our Key Stage 1 bubble for key worker children went out and about! They walked up to the grounds of Coworth Park to feed the swans...
Year 2 get Arty!
This week to showcase how we can all be artists we looked at the book The Dot. We took inspiration from this and created our own ‘gold-framed dot masterpieces’! It was fantastic to see all the children’s creative juices flowing and all their smiles the following day when they could see their artwork proudly displayed. Remember... “just make a mark and see where it takes you!”
Year 2 Science
In science this week, Year 2 explored how animals have adapted to survive the Polar environment. We focussed more on the role of ‘blubber’ and experimented putting our hands in icy water with and without a ‘blubber’ glove! Some of us were determined to try and keep our hands in the water for a very long time!!
Year 4 Ravenous Readers
Here are this week's Ravenous Readers in Year 4 including Hristiana who read 'The Queen's Nose'. A special mention for Theo who has finished reading the first book list! His favourite book was 'Cliffhanger'.
Message from Darcie - Class 5W
Last month I wrote a poem about a mouse called Netherton Woo who lives in my shoe. Afterwards, I entered it into a competition called Young Writers – Peculiar Pets. A few weeks later, I received a letter from the editor from Young Writers saying that my poem was going to be published in a book called Peculiar Pets - amazing words! My letter also explained that a copy of the book would remain in the national archives of the British library forever!!! The books will be available to buy from the 30th of April 2021. There were also 15,000 children who applied to get their poem into the final published book!!!!! I was thrilled when I received the letter. The Young Writer's company had also sent me a certificate and a bookmark that I now use regularly. I’m sooooooooo happy!!!!
Well done Darcie, we are all so proud of you!
