Chris Menmuir of the Reading Astronomy Society returned to the school to give an astronomy workshop. He enjoyed the day as much as the pupils and sent this lovely message to the school:
"Thank you for inviting me again! It is a pleasure to come into your school, the pupils are enthusiastic, interested and very well behaved, and I get great feedback from your colleagues. Please do thank them for me. And thank you for the card and the mug - I really like the message! I was fortunate to have wonderful teachers - not that I fully appreciated it at the time! - so I'm happy to give back whenever I can."
On March 12th, years 4 to 6 took a trip to Highclere Castle (known to parents as Downton Abbey) to see the wonderful exhibition of Egyptian antiquities collected by the 5th Earl of Canarvon, who together with Howard Carter unearthed the tomb of Tutankhamun. Pupils entered into the spirit of the day and enjoyed dressing up as ancient Eygptians. More photos in the school gallery here.

On Friday 2nd February 2018 our school took part in Number Day, raising £101 for the NSPCC. It was a fun day, starting with the Year 6 class assembly and moving on to a variety of maths activities, enjoyed by all. Year 5 and 6 - and our lovely visitors from Thameside School - got actively involved in "The Battle of the Robots". See the media gallery here for photos.
On Thursday 1st February 2018, the Year 6 pupils participated in a fantastic workshop at the Art Jam Studio in Caversham. They worked with clay to represent a river scene linking with their current geography topic of 'Rivers'. The finished pieces will be collected in two weeks. More photos in the media gallery here.
