Year 4 Athletics – Last Friday Rowan class took part in an indoor athletics event at Gillotts School in Henley.


Children competed against other local schools in a range of running, field and relay events. Every child competed with a lot of enthusiasm and a smile on their face which was pleasing to see. Well done to the whole of Rowan class.


School Dinner Menu – There have been minor amendments to the description of some of the daily choices on the new menu which we sent out last week. If you wish to find out what these changes are please ask in the school office.


School Uniform – We have noted that some children are wearing their fleece in class instead of a sweatshirt. Fleeces are intended for outdoor use only and should not therefore be worn in class. If you need to order a sweatshirt or any item of school uniform please ask in the school office for an order form. Another point to note is that if you wish your children to wear sandals during the summer term, the sandals should be black or navy and that socks must be worn with them.


Judo Lessons – These will start again on Thursday 19th April on Thursday mornings from 8am to 8.45am. The term consists of 10 lessons and the cost for new students is £54. There are leaflets available in the school hall if you would like more information.

Chiltern Edge Holiday Club – is open again this Easter with prices starting at £25 per day from 8.30am – 3.30pm. There are 6 days to choose from; 3rd – 5th April and 10th – 12th April 2012. Activities include Forest Fun, Arts & Crafts, Multisports, Judo, Creative Cookery, Archery (aged 9yrs +),

Bookings are being taken on a first come first served basis, and there are still spaces available in many activities. Bookings close on Thursday 29th March, and your child will not be able to attend without a booking. To check availability, contact Brenda McNulty on 07921 257657, then use the booking form on to reserve your space.

The Holiday Club @ Chiltern Edge is fully inclusive, accepts childcare vouchers, and is Ofsted registered for those who wish to take advantage of Working Families Tax Credits.
