Year 5 enjoyed am amazing day at Go Ape in Bracknell on Tuesday. This
trip was paid for using some of the money that children raised during their
enterprise week back in October. Half of the money was given to the
Oxford Homeless Charity and the rest was enjoyed by all the children in year 5.

Parking outside school at the start and end of the school day, is again becoming a problem and compromising the safety of the children. The village hall car park is a 2 minute walk away – please park here and walk up to school.

A group of children took part in the Indoor Athletics event last week. It was a noisy but enjoyable afternoon for all the children, who looked resplendent in their new purple sports T shirts. Well done to everyone who took part.

Screen Time VS Lean Time

During the school day we try to ensure that the children are as active as possible. We have two PE lessons a week and try to include activity in other lessons too. All the research points to active children being happier and healthier. Current government guidelines recommend a minimum of 2 active hours a day. Please see the above poster for advice around screen time.

Parentmail and The Club. All bookings for The Club, be it wraparound daily care, holiday club and the extra Friday club are open for bookings. You will receive emails from Parentmail allowing you to book. If you do not receive these notifications you will not have access to these to book. If you do not want to use the wrap around care facility, please ignore these notifications.

There are children in school who are wary around dogs, especially ones they are not familiar with so please do not bring dogs on to the school site. We do have a therapy dog (Maya) who visits school and in this way we are working with children to overcome fears. Maya is a trained therapy dog and is fully risk assessed.
