Newsletter 36 - 30th June 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

PTA Summer Fair

Thank you to all who were involved in the organisation and running of the wonderful Summer Fair last weekend with a special thank you to Mrs Hill.  It was lovely to see so many of you enjoying the fair.

Y6 Residential

Y6 have enjoyed a week away in Somerset at Mill on the Brue this week – thank you to Mrs Neale, Mrs Hunter, Miss Lazar and Mrs Free for taking them. 

The Show Must Go On!

I was very privileged to take a choir from Year 4 and Year 5 to star in the Berkshire Maestros Junior Music Festival on Thursday 29th June at the Reading Hexagon Theatre.  The children learned songs across a wide range of musical genres from The Sound of Music, The Wind in the Willows, Oliver, Seussical the Musical, Les Misérables to Hansel and Gretel arranged from the Royal Opera House.   They performed with an orchestra and they all were AMAZING and truly shone!  I hope you enjoyed the experience: we are looking forward to next year already!  Special thanks to Mrs Rhodes and Mrs Boaler who also attended the event with me.


Have a lovely weekend


Mrs Carmel Barnes

Assistant Headteacher

Maths Magicians

On Tuesday morning, we sent two teams of year 5 pupils to take part in a maths competition at St. George’s, Ascot. They competed against other year 5 and 6 pupils from one of the Cluster schools. Our teams came first and second out of the four teams. An excellent result – well done to Charlie, James, Xander, Aidan, Luke, Samuel, Maya and Orla! Thank you to Mrs Hunt for attending with the children. They all had a great time.

Racing Rounders

On Tuesday after school, we entered a year 5 team into a years 5 & 6 Rounder tournament at Charters.  They played fantastically well, winning three out of five games, and finishing in second place overall. Well done to Amelie, Neive, Edie, Mehher, Fin, Luke, Xander, Aidan, Jude and James.  Fin and Edie were awarded special certificates for demonstrating Charters’ values of Unity and Excellence. Thank you to the parents who were able to support the team and to Miss Harding for attending with the children.

Gerbils Available

Mongolian Gerbils available.  Both boys, will be 3 in August. The blonde gerbil is Biscuit and the grey gerbil is named Bear. We bought them when they were babies, from Pets Corner in Camberley.  As they are Mongolian, they have sand baths, never wash them with water.  They are well trained, polite, and will sit with you when watching tv.  They have 35 minutes of exercise every day in their plastic balls, and love sunflower seeds as treats. Anyone who comes into our home, falls in love with bear and biscuit and are wonderful pets for children!

Any further questions, please let me know. More than happy to discuss further.  Contact Lauren on 07584578566
