News - Heads up from Mrs Day!


Friday 5th May:

It is a poignant day for British history tomorrow and I am glad that we were able to celebrate the occasion in some way today. The children are well aware of the events of tomorrow's coronation and the similarities and differences to The Queen's coronation in 1953. Hopefully they will be able to discuss these with you over the weekend!

As well as our coronation activities, we have had lots of visitors in assembly over the last couple of weeks. Miss O'Hare organised two author visits for KS1 and KS2 and I was slightly star struck to meet one of my son's favourite authors when I walked into the hall (I did get her autograph and a signed book!). We were also lucky enough to listen to some riders from Oxford Speedway this week and the Fire Brigade visited last week (see pictures below). It is always great to have visitors into school as we continue to enhance our provision.

Next week is SATs week for Year 6 and they have worked so hard to prepare and I know that Mr Austin is extremely proud of their efforts so far. Next week is the time to show it off! We are looking forward to our first ever Thomas Reade Year 6 SATs breakfast where the children can all come together before the tests so please bring your Year 6 children in for 8.15am Tuesday morning.

I also want to say a big thank you to everyone who helped out at the SA garden tidy last weekend. Without the continued support from the parents, the school would not be where it is today.

Have a lovely long weekend with the extra bank holiday and enjoy any celebrations that you might have booked.
