Girls Biathlon
For girls in Years 3/4 there will be an event run on May 8th and Y5 on May 11th at The Marist School in Sunninghill.
If your daughter can comfortably swim the following distances (without touching the floor) and would like to enter then please inform your class teacher:
Y3 – 80M
Y4 – 100M
Y5 – 160M
The swim is then followed by a lengthy run (600m, 800m, 1km) and girls are also expected to transition into trainers without support so it is not for the faint hearted!
Y3/4 Tennis Competition
If your child is in year 3 or 4 and plays tennis then please ask them to inform their class teacher. We are entering a team in an upcoming schools competition on the 25th May. To aid with selection, we will be running an after school club in the run up to coach and prepare the team before the event. This club will have a maximum of 12 spaces.
Year 4 Mixed Football Tournament
An outstanding display of skilful football took the year 4 mixed football team all the way to the final, at the recent Ascot and Maidenhead mixed seven-a-side tournament.
The team finished group winners beating Wessex, Courthouse, Cookham Rise and Holy Trinity, without conceding a goal.
A 2-0 win against Holyport in the semi-final was followed by a 2-0 defeat by Oldfield in the final.
Both finalists have been invited to represent Ascot and Maidenhead at the Berkshire Games.
Well done to the three girls and seven boys who represented the school so well.
Also a big thank you to the parents who helped with the transport.
Sainsbury’s Vouchers
We are collecting Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers.  Please encourage relatives and friends to take the vouchers at the till.
