Holy Week Liturgy
Although there is a note in the parish bulletin to say that we are having a Liturgy in the church on Thursday, this is not for parents to attend. On this occasion we would like all children to be present and therefore will need all the seats in the church. An exception to this is that the parents of children who are presenting may attend.
Easter Egg Hunt-Thursday 29th March, 2.30-4.30
The Easter Trail starts at 2.30, maps can be purchased in the playground on Tuesday & Wednesday and on the day (£2.50 per child). The children will follow two sets of clues (junior and infant) set up across the school field and once completed they can collect their chocolate prize from the studio.
At the same time in the studio and the assembly hall there will be lots of stalls – craft, biscuit decorating, sweet & cake stall, ‘Guess the Name of the Bunny’, Hook a Duck’ and much more! (Each stall ranging from 10p – £1)
At 3.30, on the stage, we will have our bonnet competition open to all years – 1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes for infants & juniors so get making!
Finally at 4pm we will have our raffle – hampers, Easter eggs and more to be won!
We hope you can make this event – we are on our way to purchasing more touch screens for years 3, 2, 1 and Reception, so your support is much appreciated!
No Bags in School on Thursday
PE bags will go home on Wednesday. Please do not let your child bring their bag in to school on Thursday so that they do not have to carry them around the Easter Egg Hunt in the afternoon. Packed lunch boxes/bags are of course allowed.
Loose Change Day
On Loose Change day we made £741. Thank you for your generosity.
Year 3/4 Berkshire Games Mixed Football
A fine performance was shown by our mixed Year 3/4 football team who were representing Ascot and Maidenhead last week. 15 other teams took part at the recent Berkshire Games representing other parts of the county.
The team managed to win 4 of their 6 matches; they played and finished in a very creditable 4th position overall.
Well done to the 3 girls and 7 boys who took part.
A big thank you must go to all the parents who helped with transport and stayed and supported the team throughout the morning.
