Why not start your week with a burst of energy? Come along and walk, skip, jog or even sprint a mile on Monday mornings. This club is open to everyone and no reply slip is needed. Just turn up. You can even get your parents to join in too. Look out for Mr Hanson by the playground gate on Monday mornings at 8.30am. You will have enough time to complete a mile (a few times around the field). If you are ‘running’ late, you can join in and run half a mile instead!

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.

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.
