There will be a Parent Forum Meeting this Friday. Please contact your class representative if you have and items you would like discussed.
Thank you to all of the parents who came to the information evening tonight. It was so nice to see so many people there. If you were unable to make it, all teachers have posted a 'Parents Information Letter' on the class web pages.
If you are a parent of a Reception child, please come along to our cheese and wine evening next Friday. It is an opportunity for you to get to know the parents of other children in Reception Class and make new friends.
We were delighted to welcome our new Foundation Stage class to the school today. There were lots of smiles from all of the children and they had an absolutely marvellous first day - well done Reception!
It was great to see all of the Monks Risborough pupils back at school today to start a year of fun and fabulous learning!
Recount of Class One’s Trip to Stoke Mandeville Stadium
Written by Serin Giles
On Thursday Class One went to Stoke Mandeville Stadium because we are learning about the Olympics. When I got to school I was very excited. Then when we were all ready we got on the coach. It didn’t take very long to get there. Straight away I saw Splash Mandeville. After that we entered the sports hall where we met Ian a wheelchair rugby player. He asked us loads of questions and loads and loads of us put our hands up. Next Ian asked for a volunteer and Mr Baskerville sat in one of the wheelchairs and Ian bashed into Mr Baskerville as they do in the sport. Then Ian handed his wheelchair rugby ball around. When the ball got to Miss Nash she was very excited and got a photo with the ball. Meanwhile we went to see the swimming pool it had flags saying London 2012! After that we went to see some wheelchair tennis. Then we did the 100 metres!! Afterwards we went back into the hall and got into real wheelchairs. Ollie told us the instructions. Then the teachers had a race Mr Baskerville came last and Miss Strube came first! Miss Nash won the next race. Then we got back onto the coach. After we got back to have our hot dinners they were very yummy. The End.
Class Two’s Trip to Shortenills – as told by Robert
“On Friday, we visited Shortenills to learn orienteering skills. First we happily went on the busy coach and I sat next to Daisy. Half way through we went past my house. Me and Daisy were chatting all the way through, it was great fun.
Then, we got there I was so excited because it looked awesome! Then we went in the yurt to put our bags down. Then we tried to find Minpins.
After that, we walked back into the yurt and got our bags. Then we went outside to eat our lunch, when I was eating my lunch I saw Mr Leach swallow two whole chocolate chip muffins! Can you imagine that?
Next, we made the whole map of the grounds with leaves, sticks, and rocks. Next, we were adventurous and we went orienteering and it was very fun apart from when Fin fell over and I cut myself. But they were just little scratches and part of the fun of going to Shortenills is exploring and getting into scrapes!
Finally, we came back and got on the coach. I was sat next to Daisy and Toby F. Me and Toby were chatting about casual stuff that boys talk about. When we got back to school Mr Leach tiredly gave us a golden ticket to everyone, the good thing was that I got two! It was the best day of my life.”
As always, Class Two parents are very welcome to come in and see how their child recounted their day of orienteering fun at Shortenills!
