As an addition to the Physical Education curriculum pupils have had the opportunity to take part in Taekwondo. This was a chance for pupils to experience a different sport and learn the skills required for the sport. This was a new experience for many pupils and one that was enjoyed by all. We would like to thank Reading FC Community Trust for delivering the sessions.

Within the Primary school, we are thoroughly enjoying our 'Potions' topic so far. We have used it to undertake lots of Science investigations, beginning with a 'Whacky Races' experiment to test the viscosity of various liquids. Our Maths has allowed us to explore capacity, which has leant itself to lots of practical work, whilst also linking in with texts covered during our Literacy sessions, including 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and 'Alice in Wonderland'.

Artist of the Week
I am very excited to have received our new 'Artist of the week' postcards, that will be sent home for students that have worked really hard in their Art (or Photography) lessons. I have been looking at designing a postcard for a little while, then when I saw the excellent Graffiti work that the year 8's were designing online, I asked Luke Harris if he'd be happy for me to use his image on the postcard.
I have sent a few postcards home retrospectively from the end of last term & there are more to come. I am looking out for students that have an excellent attitude towards their artwork & are working well, so it's not only the most able artists who can receive these awards. I hope that both parents & students will feel proud of their achievements, just as I am. There is some fantastic work coming from students across all key stages, I am very much looking forward to sending more postcards home soon.
