Year 3 Papplewick boys enjoyed a Geography workshop called 'Around the World' at Legoland on Tuesday 17th September.

This enabled them to explore, locate and identify the earth's continents and oceans through LEGO.  They used both teamwork and building skills to create natural landmarks, animals and buildings out of LEGO.  They then went on to view the continents and countries in Mini Land, and followed this by a ride in a submarine.

Tom Bunbury, Headmaster said " We are fortunate to have Legoland on our doorstep and the boys were lucky enough to experience a fun, hands-on session to enhance their Geography lessons."

Papplewick  School, Ascot  Visit: 

To lessen any possibility of ‘beginning of term blues’ after the long, hot summer break, Papplewick boys were pleased to have the chance to have a fun day with their fellow classmates on what is called ‘Form Thursday’  All boys in the school were treated to a range of school trips out (years 5-8) including murder mysteries in Windsor, climbing walls in Reading, a visit to RAF Duxford, visit to the Bluebell Railway, and trip to the Science Museum. The Lower school  enjoyed a slap up  BBQ lunch at school followed by fun activities within the school grounds when years 2- 4 took part in a nature treasure trail, and  created imaginative bird-feeders in the trees.

Tom Bunbury, Headmaster said “Form Thursday is designed to assist the boys to gel together in their new forms at the start of the year and is of special value to new boys proving a popular bonding experience for all involved.

Long- standing and much-missed familiar South Ascot landmark, Hyns chinese restaurant, in Brockenhurst Road, is in the process of being gutted. Martin McColl Limited, who have shops on several Bracknell shopping parades, have submitted an application to sell alcohol, which  is with the Royal Borough.

Cllr Simon Dudley has tweeted that he is delighted to hear that the ~£15 million Oaks Leisure Centre in Charters Road, Sunningdale, planning application was approved at the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead #Windsor Area Development Management Panel on September 4th.

The application for the proposed new leisure centre, which could be co-located with Charters School and existing leisure centre facilities on the site, could see residents in the south of the borough benefit from an expanded daytime leisure offering, available seven days a week, including:

  • A six-lane, 25m swimming pool, meaning residents who live in the south of the borough would no longer have to travel to access swimming facilities.
  • An additional 60-station gym.
  • An additional dance studio.
  • A sports hall with eight badminton courts.
  • 100 additional car parking spaces.

Permanent Hostile Vehicle Mitigation installation to begin in Windsor

The installation of phase one of Windsor’s permanent Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) measures will begin week commencing Monday 23 September.

The first two sites, Peascod Street and Sheet Street, will be completed by mid-November, with the remaining four sites to be installed after Christmas.

There will be no disruption to traffic during the Peascod Street works as most of the work will be carried out during 10am - 5pm when the road is already closed to traffic.

Sheet Street, which will see works beginning week commencing Monday 7 October, will require two-way signals as each lane is worked on, but more detailed information will be available closer to the time, and will be posted on the council website.

Cllr Samantha Rayner, lead member for culture, communities and Windsor, said: “It’s great to see these permanent measures installed, with each location’s design being unique and designed with great consideration of each area’s conservation status in mind.

Papplewick’s MacMillan coffee morning 2019 was a very different picture from years gone by in the nineties when the whole idea was rather a small affair with parents gathering over a coffee and donating the cost to MacMillan in the process .  Having raised over £2600 over the past 3 years,  on Saturday 7th September the Parents of Papplewick (POP) once again organised the most scrumptious array of cakes to raise money for this most worthy cause.  Both boys and parents contributed their creations (Bake Off – eat your heart out)  – and this year a record £1250 was raised when the bake sale was set up over two sessions –  after the Chapel Service, and again during the football team trials in the afternoon when appetites were at their peak. 

Headmaster Tom Bunbury Tom Bunbury said. “ We are proud to be able to help MacMillan Cancer in any way possible for the incredible support they give, and thanks agan to our parents for organising this superb cake sale."
