9 November; the week at Read
Diwali at Read
Pre-School and Pre-Prep have been enjoying and celebrating Diwali this week. Mrs Aggarwal and her son Atharv in Pre-School and Mr & Mrs Chadha and their daughter Rhea in Year 2 came into school in traditional Indian dress and shared how they celebrate Diwali with their families.
We had great fun making diva lights and Pre-School made a huge rangoli flower in the playground with powder paint. There was lots of delicious Indian food to taste and a whole range of Diwali activities. Thank you to the Aggarwals and Chadhas for including us in their families' celebrations!

Brothers in Arms
Brothers Matthew and Ben Roberts pose with the Headmaster as wreath bearers in their respective CCF contingent uniforms.
On Wednesday 11th November, staff, pupils and parents of Read School turned out in force to pay tribute to those fallen old boys of the school. Particular plaudits go to the CCF and their commanding officers, who encouraged us to think about those serving in our armed forces now.
Before the service began, the Army and RAF contingents of the CCF did themselves and their officers proud as they marched through the village to the church.
On the march: the Army and RAF contingents make their way down to the village church.
