We are a 'Good School'!
Our latest Ofsted report was published on 29th March 2018, and we were delighted to again be awarded a 'Good' grading.  This comes one year after our 'Outstanding' Church of England inspection.  We are so proud of our school and its amazing community! You can find the report under the 'Reports & Results' section on this site.

Y4 visit The Living Rainforest
On Wednesday 23rd May, Y4 visited The Living Rainforest near Newbury.  Having studied rainforests in depth in Geography this year, the children were excited to experience the hot, humid climate they had learned so much about, hear about sustainability and meet lots of exotic animals!  Y4 behaved exceptionally well and were a credit to the school. 

Y6 visit Henley!
On Tuesday 222nd May, Y6 went on a fascinating trip to Henley. It was a glorious spring day for a walk up the river, where they were able to witness a lock in action. The children then took part in 4 workshop sessions within the River and Rowing Museum, all related to their current topic of rivers, including observing how rainwater travels to the river from its surrounding hills.   A great time was had by all, and everyone learned loads about the Thames!

Y3 visit to Ufton Court
On 12th June Y3 enjoyed an Iron Age Day out.  They learned about what life was like for the Celts, built fences, lit fires from flint, spun thread from wool and dug for artefacts. Finally, it was down to the farm to grind grains to make flour, churn cream to make butter, milk the cows and plough the fields. Phew! A very busy trip!
Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of … curry!
Y6 wowed us with their end of year production, 'Pirates of the Curry Bean' on 13th and 14th June.  The children worked extremely hard to ensure their parents and fellow pupils were entertained with a fantastic and very funny show.  Mrs Mackrell and Mr Sutton are justifiably very proud of them!

 
A huge THANK YOU to AVS Fencing Supplies Ltd who gave us £200 from their Community Fund to develop our outside Summer Play area. These funds allowed us to purchase some large umbrellas,  a new toy box and a portable stereo for the children to enjoy.  Perfect for this amazing weather!


 

Well done 4VH!
Congratulations to Miss Ahmed and 4VH, who completely trounced the opposition at the Summer Fete 'Dragons Den' competition.  Year 4-6 were tasked with creating a product to sell at the fete with a £20 budget - the winner was the class who made the most profit.  4VH decided to make relaxer/stress balls, and from their £20 starting point raised an amazing £174!  Well done to Miss Ahmed's budding entrepreneurs! 

Y2 visit Henley!
Y2 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Henley River and Rowing Museum on Friday 6th July. The trip was a great way to consolidate their English topic based around The Wind in the Willows story. The children  enjoyed seeing the characters from the book in the exhibition – it brought their learning to life and also explored habitats along the river bank. The children ate their lunch by the river whilst the regatta boats gave them a cheerful wave as they cruised by in the sunshine!

 

Farewell Y6
Tuesday 24th July was the last day at primary school for our Y6 children. As always, we will be sad to see them go, but at the same time, we know that they are now ready for the next stage of their lives. We wish them all the very best of luck for the future.
