The Brainbusters Big Win!

On the 13th May, three children from year 4 (Eleanor, Sophie B and Bowen) were chosen to go to a maths competition at the Holiday Inn in Maidenhead. Twenty-four schools took part and every team had three children in it. There were three rounds.  The rounds consisted of thirty questions and were all word problems. As a team, we managed to come 1st place and the Deputy Mayor of Maidenhead presented us with our prizes which were £10 book tokens each, a certificate, a medal, £50 for the school and a shield to hold for a year. They have an extremely proud teacher and extremely proud parents.

(P.S Bowen says they need to fix the heating.)

Reception Class - Knitting Afternoon

Reception Class enjoyed learning to knit on Thursday afternoon. This was linked to their visit to Rushall Farm and their discussion about what the sheep’s wool was used for. The children showed off their great listening skills and ability to follow instructions!  Many thanks to those who came into help.

Writing Wall of Fame

Miss Harding has renewed the Writing Wall of Fame with a new set of writers!  Well done to the following children who have made the Writing Wall of Fame this time around:


Rec - Luke

Y1 - Heloise

Y2 - Ollie

3C - Ali

3G - Savannah

Y4 - Grace

Y5 - Noah

Y6 - Edward


The display can be seen through the double doors leading to the Medical Room and to the left.

Parking Problems

Inconsiderate and illegal parking around the school continues to cause a problem for other road users, our neighbours and of course, for our own children.  Many children from Year 6 and their brothers and sisters at Charters school, walk to school alone every day.  Crossing roads safely is impossible if cars are parked on double yellow lines close to or on junctions.  It is also confusing for children, who we expect to follow rules, to see their own and other people's parents breaking rules daily.  We have a new PCSO who is keen and very interested in the situation and may appear at random times to inspect parking around the school.  We already have some photos to show him.
