7th December

Saturday 7th of December 2019
Christmas has officially arrived! There was an air of excitement, full of ‘awe and wonder’ when the pupils entered school on Monday amazed by the decorations, trees and lights. As always, some pupils are so fascinated with the corridor lights in particular they just want to sit and look at them! This is usual, staff are skilled in allowing them to do so at key points during the day. Throughout the week, classes have been ‘beavering away’ in making their special goods for our...

Table Cricket and Cricket Coaching

Monday 2nd of December 2019
We were recently approached by Bucks County Cricket who had some funding available to deliver some cricket coaching to our children. It was decided that it would be best to have a combination of Table Cricket (which we had experienced with some children at local Sports Festivals) as well as more conventional cricket. James came in to deliver the sessions over the course of several Fridays, seeing different groups of children in each session. Table cricket uses our table tennis table in the gym and then...

30th November St Andrew's Day

Saturday 30th of November 2019
‘Twas the week before Christmas’ begins at The Redway School. We are still affected by sickness which has had an impact on both staff and pupils, but we have remained positive and open – which has been a challenge, but everyone rose to it. However, I would like to ask, yet again for pupils not to come in to school if they are unwell, even with a slight cold as this can impact on others – staff included. We have started practicing our Christmas songs for all three of our...

24th November

Sunday 24th of November 2019
This past week has been a challenge! Many staff, pupils and parents have been affected by the sickness virus which appears more prevalent than usual. Thank you for your support and understanding with the classes that we had to close to enable the remainder of the school to function efficiently – it’s never an easy decision but we need to ensure that we continue with our high standards of education and care at all times. We are not the only school  that has been affected by this, many other...

Children in Need 2019

Friday 22nd of November 2019
As always, we were keen and enthusiastic to support the BBC’s Children In Need fundraising day. Our theme this year was to ether wear colours that clash or pyjamas. Pupils and staff embraced this in full and there were certainly some very interesting outfits! We had a fun day with lots of interactive games and Pudsey Bear based learning. The café’s proceeds also went towards our fund raising day. Thanks to everyone’s support we raised £354. Well done everyone.

17th November

Sunday 17th of November 2019
We have had several different themes within school this week. At the start of the week we focussed upon Remembrance with several pupils attending the Remembrance Ceremony in Milton Keynes on Monday. Classes made ‘memory wreaths’ decorated with special things which they remember, or which help them to remember ready for assembly on Wednesday. Assembly on Wednesday was all about remembrance, but also being thankful. Those of us who were able, stood for National Anthem, we sang relevant songs...
