Didn’t we have a great Sports Day yesterday?! The weather was perfect – not too hot but lovely and sunny.
A huge number of our students participated throughout the day in individual sports like the javelin and discus, as well as team games including football and Ultimate Frisbee.
The day culminated in the finals of the track events and we were thrilled to be joined by a number of parents, carers, grandparents and younger siblings.
We took lots of photos and we’ll find a way of sharing more with you in September but for now here are a selection.
And if you’re interested in the results, the House competition after Sports Day looks like this:
Overall House Winners for Sports Day 2016
1st Place – Englemere (red) – 903
2nd Place – Caesar(blue) – 848
3rd Place – Wildmoor (green) – 840
4th Place – Swinley (yellow)– 575
Please use the additional parking signposted from our roundabout and join us on the fields at the front of the school.
If you are collecting your child, they are required to stay until they have signed out with their tutor at the end of the day at 3:10pm.
Please make sure that your child comes fully prepared in PE kit, with a water bottle, sunscreen and hat. If the weather is too hot, we will make a decision about whether it is appropriate to run the day.
Last week a group of High Achieving students (HAS) had great fun exploring the latest technology and talking to expert IT graduates at a national “TechWeek” event hosted by Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
The interactive event included hands-on activities and demonstrations including Google Cardboard virtual reality, CodeWars, wi-fi boosters and the popular “Million Pound Drop” game.
Graduate engineers also gave us a guided tour of HP’s labs – the size of the 24/7 servers was incredible!
Our students thoroughly enjoyed the digital experience and the morning was made even more special by the warm welcome we received from HR Director, Jane Keith, who is proud to be a former EPCS student.
“I liked the free stuff and the giant servers were awesome” (Brett, year 7)
“The virtual reality was weird as it made me feel dizzy but I still want one. It was good to have the technology explained to me by experts” (Paige, year 7)
In the blazing hot sun yesterday, a group of GCSE PE students led the KS1 Bracknell Forest Golf Festival. They instructed approximately 150 Year 2 pupils around a variety of fun stations to help develop their putting and chipping skills. For some of our students it was the first time they had led an activity outside of their PE lessons. A massive well done is deserved for all of the students involved.
There are only a few places left to sign up for on The Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award that we are running for EPCS6 students next academic year. Forms should be completed and returned to the Finance Office Postbox on the Maths corridor either before the end of term or at the start of the new school term in September in order to secure a place. The enrollment form is attached or please email Miss Emmett for details at email@example.com
The weather forecast is for hot weather up until Thursday. In response, the school has stood down the requirement to wear a blazer for this week. Please do not substitute hoodies or other similar items as these are not part of our uniform and may be confiscated. Shoes, not trainers, are expected to be worn by students.
Please can every student bring a full water bottle to school (no fizzy or energy drinks as these are not allowed) so they are able to keep hydrated. Water will be available for students to refill bottles at break and lunchtimes. Students misusing water will be sanctioned.
Please make sure your child applies sunscreen every day this week before school so that they are prepared for the day. This is especially important on sports day on Thursday.
