Claires Court Maidenhead

from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 8

A busy, busy week! The Nursery classes have focused on space, creating rockets and papier mache planets as well as talking about the planets in our solar system. Transition children have used lots of recycled materials to create models of human bodies and have wonderfully imaginative creations as a result.

On Thursday the children enjoyed their 'World Book Day' experience of dressing up in their favourite book character costume and looked amazing. They role played libraries and made their own books. Thank you so much for sending in books to accompany the costumes which they really enjoyed listening to. The children all have a £1 book token for spending in their favourite bookshop.

  • The Claires Court charity week this year will take place the week commencing Monday 16 March and, to support this, the Nursery Department will have a dress up day on Thursday 19 March. The theme will be super heroes and a minimum donation of £2 for coming in dressed up will greatly appreciated by the Link Foundation who we are supporting. The Link Foundation has no political agenda and aims to help all children and families in disadvantaged circumstances, both locally and overseas, regardless of background, race or religion, when they know that practical assistance will make a difference to them. 75% of all funding is reserved to help local families in East Berkshire, South Buckinghamshire and the surrounding areas; 25% currently is directed into carefully chosen international projects where it seems like a modest amount of cash can make huge differences in the lives of children. Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause.
