Newsletter 31 - 14th May 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,


I'm sorry to have to share some desperately sad news with you today. Mrs Poulter's husband, Graham, died suddenly on Wednesday. I know many of you will know him from Ascot United amongst other things and will be greatly saddened by this shocking news. We are all keeping Mrs Poulter and her family in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.


So, you may have spotted that neither Mrs Poulter or Mrs Lawson are in the office at this time. Please bear with us as we do our very best to answer any queries. Your patience is appreciated as we try to keep our ship afloat.


Sports Day

On a happier note, I'm really pleased to be able to confirm that  we will be able to celebrate Sports Day again this year. It will be slightly different (I'm a bit fed up of saying that now!) but we're delighted we can invite parents in to enjoy the events with us.

There will be three Sports Day (in bubbles) all starting at 9.10am and lastly approx. 1 hour:

  • EYFS and KS1 on Thursday 17th June at 9.10am
  • Year 3 & Year 4 on Tuesday 15th June at 9.10am
  • Year 5 and Year 6 on Friday 18th June at 9.10am


Parents are invited to attend and maintain social distancing. You will be welcomed onto the field when you drop your chlidren to school on that morning. Fingers crossed for lovely weather.

We ask that the children wear a plain t-shirt that matches their House Team (air = yellow     fire = red     water = blue       earth = green).

Please contact your class teacher if you're unsure what House your child is in.


Widening of KS2 Bubble from Monday 17th May

We are pleased that from Monday 17th May, KS2 will be one bubble at lunchtimes. This means that the children will have a longer slot in the lunch hall to eat.  It also means that when the weather is kind enough, packed lunches can be eaten outside.


Road Safety

It is really busy on the pavements and roads at pick up and drop off times. Please make sure that your child stays with you at all times so that they are safe. Please talk to your children about the importance of staying with you and not running off by themselves.


Film Night Tuesday 18th May

Thank you to the PTA for organising with Miss Wallbanks. 

  • Reception will be staying in their classroom. Pick up at 4.10pm from Church Road gate.
  • Y1, Y2 and Y3 pick up from the playground as per usual at 4.15pm
  • Y4 pick up from Church Road gate at 4.15pm
  • 5C pick up from Church Road gate at 4.30pm
  • 5W and Y6 pick up from the playground as per usual at 4.30pm


If Y6 children are walking home by themselves, please email Mrs Neale to give permission. 


Don't forgot Class Photographs on Monday 17th! Please send your child in to school in their uniform with PE kit to change into if necessary.


Enjoy your weekend,


Mrs Griffith


Pop Up Fidget Toys

The new crave has hit Sunningdale! Please keep these toys at home and avoid bringing them into school. Thank you!

Football after school club on Thursdays

Please do not send football kits to change into. The children should come to school in their PE kits and bring a pair of football boots to change into only. Thank you for your help with this.

Rushall Farm

Reception had a fantastic day out at Rushall Farm on Tuesday experiencing rain, hail and sunshine! We were the first school to return after the COVID break and were the only school there...we felt very special! The children enjoyed a variety of experiences, these were some of the highlights...

  • feeding, stroking and holding the chickens
  • seeing all the sheep and new baby lambs
  • driving the tractor
  • tractor and trailer ride
  • pond dipping and finding tadpoles, a baby newt and damselfly larva.

There are lots of photos on the Reception Class go and look.

EYFS Outdoor Area

We are hoping to develop a gardening area in our outdoor area. Mrs Free's husband has built us some outdoor raised beds. We now need some top soil. If anyone has access to any cheap top soil, or if anyone is willing to make a donation towards buying some top soil and then compost it would be gratefully received.

Forest School Update

Has your child benefited from our Forest School? Here is your chance to help out!

We are hoping to organise a working party one weekend to do some work at Forest School. Jobs include painting the hut, clearing to pond, moving the base camp area.

Date to follow soon. Thanks is advance!

Break the Rules Day


The children should have received their forms for Break the Rules Day and there seemed to be lots of excitement about it yesterday at pick up.  Clearly there is an inner rule breaker inside them all!!  If the children could please return their forms along with the money in an envelope to their teacher.


Virtual Summer Fair


We are unable to hold a traditional Summer Fair this year, however we will be doing a Virtual Summer Fair with an online Silent Auction held from 2-9 July and a Raffle on 3 July.  More details to follow.
