Sports Week - thank you to Miss Murray, Mrs Crosbie, and Mrs O'Dwyer and all of the members of staff who have helped with sports week. The children have had a very active week and we hope that they have enjoyed the range of physical activities that have been on offer. Special thanks to the sports leaders from CCC for helping us this week as well. Weekly Email - 7th July.
A friendly tournament held at Davenies School in Beaconsfield to give an introduction to competitive games. Sadly cancelled due to heavy rain this year.
Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their morning of athletics at Chalfonts Community College on Tuesday as part of their PE Festival. They all took part in a range of athletics events under the supervision of some of CCC's Sports Leaders - several of whom were ex Junior School students.

We hope that the Year 3 children enjoyed their visit to Amersham School on Tuesday when they joined several other local schools to take part in a Capture the Flag Festival.

Football and Netball - well done to the children who took part in the friendly matches against Little Chalfont on Wednesday. These games gave some of the children their first experience of playing a competitive game and were a great preparation for future matches.

School blog update Tuesday, 15 November 2016
As our PE Challenge this term the children have been running laps of the playground to try to run from Rio in Brazil to Chalfont St Giles.
Children all across Bucks are hoping collectively walk, jog or run 9,298km eventually arriving (hopefully) back to the UK! Each child is to log each lap through a tally system on a Record Sheet in school. The school will have four weeks to complete the challenge and the children can walk, jog or run laps during their PE lessons and also during Wake and Shake times.
As of the end of Week 3 our school has completed an amazing 32,537 playground laps. Each lap is approximately 100m so, although they are not quite back from Rio, they have run and walked a very long way!
Update - Friday 2nd December - we have received a thank you from the NSPCC for the sponsor money that was collected from this event. As a school we managed to raise £771.60 for the NSPCC which is a fantastic sum.
From Weekly Email of 21st October 2016
It was great to see so many children pushing themselves during the PE Challenge day on Tuesday. We were joined by Nikki Charge from the Schools PE Partnership and she gave the children lots of advice and encouragement as we launched our Rio to UK PE Challenge. The children have since been doing their daily run on the playground at the end of the lunch break and have been tallying their laps. Miss Murray will keep everyone updated after half term as the challenge continues so that we all know how far the children have run.
The children will continue with the daily running/jogging challenge over the next few weeks and will still need to have trainers in school with them.
From Email to parents 13th Oct 2016.
Please can children come to school in school PE kit on Tuesday so that they can take part in our PE challenge day during which the children will be jogging and running as part of the Rio to UK school challenge. Teachers will remind children that they will need to take their PE kit home by end of Monday.

Dear Parent / Carer
This year our school has registered with the NSPCC Speak Out Stay Safe programme and a representative of the NSPCC joined us today for a special assembly. We will be holding workshops with some of the classes, details of which shall be sent home as appropriate.
As a school we have agreed to support the NSPCC by raising funds for this valuable programme that works to help protect children. We are doing this in conjunction with our Rio to UK PE Challenge that is going to be explained to us by our School Sports Partnership team. All of the Junior School children will participate in the walking, running part of the Rio to UK PE Challenge but, with your permission and assistance, they can also find sponsors and raise money for the work of the NSPCC. This money will be used to fund education campaigns across the UK.
Rio to UK challenge
Children across Bucks will collectively walk, jog or run 9,298km eventually arriving (hopefully) back to the UK! Each child is to log each lap through a tally system on a Record Sheet in school. The school will have four weeks to complete the challenge and the children can walk, jog or run laps during their PE lessons and also during Wake and Shake times.
At the end of the challenge month we shall submit the total distance, in kilometres, that all of the Junior School children and staff combined have completed. Many other local primary schools are taking part in this challenge and we are looking forward to seeing which school in our local area has covered the furthest distance and if the combined schools manage to cover the distance to make it back home from Rio!
In addition to taking part in the PE Challenge we shall be raising funds for the NSPCC by sponsorship of distance covered. Sponsors can be friends, family or maybe work colleagues of parents but we would ask you please to endorse the message the school will be giving to the children that they are not to go knocking on the doors of strangers in an attempt to collect additional sponsors for obvious reasons. Suggested donations could be 20p per 10 laps or something similar as the children will be completing quite a lot of laps over the four weeks, or you could sponsor a fixed amount for completing the challenge each week.
One lap will be the perimeter or either the upper school or lower school playground. Our Rio to UK challenge will begin on Tuesday 18th October 2016 during our PE Challenge Day If you would like to join in and help us to raise funds for the NSPCC please look out for the Buddy’s Big Workout NSPCC sponsor form that is being sent home with children this week.
The U11 team had their first competitive matches of the season when they took part in a tournament at Butlers Court school. It was great to see some of the new Year 5's joining the team at the tournament.
