What a fantastic day the children had on our Diploma Day! The aim was to learn new skills, develop our learning behaviours, and enjoy working with other pupils across the school. The activities to chose from were:
Super Hero Costumes
Pom Pom Chicks
Easter Felting Fun
Outside Environment Team
What an amazing time our Year 5 pupils and parents, building shelters as part of their Year 5 Brazil topic! Many of the shelters are still standing!
Wow, well done Kings Furlong! On Tuesday 1st April our Year 4 rugby team went to Basingstoke Rugby Club to compete in a schools tournament. The children showed fantastic teamwork and played their socks off. They won 3 of their matches and drew 1. Following such great results the team was entered into the final. Unfortunately they didn’t win this last game but 3 – 2 was a great result. The children were a real asset to our school and should be complimented on both their team spirit and sportsmanship.
A Big Thank You to you all for sending in Easter Eggs on Wednesday. The Thames Vale Vultures arrived on the playground with their Gold Wing Motorbikes and the children went out class by class to hand over their eggs and have a look at the bikes. A massive 457 Eggs were collected from both schools for the Variety Club to give to needy children. Thank you.
We will be holding a non-uniform day this Wednesday 2nd April to support the Thames Vale Vultures who will be coming in on their Gold Wing motorbikes to collect Easter Eggs for the Variety Club. Children are asked to bring in an Easter Egg on the day. Thank you for your support.

Our theme this week is responsibility. Quite often we have to make hard choices because of our responsibilities, and we want our pupils to develop a sense of ‘doing the right thing’, and understanding the consequences of decisions.
