Dear CHS Parents

Carnival Day today is everything we could have wished for, with all the children coming to school dressed in a multitude of colours and characters.

We made every effort to meet our ambition of travelling the world in 8 hours, from Amelia Earhart and Emily Pankhurst to Neil Armstrong and Sherlock Holmes.  Our school is buzzing with activity.  The children have baked pizzas and cakes, participated in fun quizzes, danced and designed everything from headdresses to celebrate Brazilian Carnival, to 3D junk modelling where they created famous landmarks; creations included The Parthenon, Big Ben, The White House and Burj Khalifa.

What a triumph the day has been!  Thanks must be given to the teachers involved with organising today’s events, lead by Ms Burke.

We all participated in World Safety Day on Tuesday.  Mrs Hampton was delighted to lead the assembly for our senior classes and was so impressed with the children’s choices and opinions that they shared during the session.  May we take this opportunity to remind our parents to be vigilant with firewalls at home: https://www.lgfl.net/sales/security-and-safeguarding

 

Coffee Morning

My sincere apologies to our parents who joined us for our ‘Behaviour’ coffee morning yesterday.  Sadly, the force of technology was certainly not with us and Mrs Lachger was unable to access the meeting.  Nevertheless, all was not lost and it was a wonderful opportunity for parents to share their views and experiences related to children’s behaviour.   Thank you to those parents that made recommendations, which included books such as ‘Mum what’s wrong with you?’ by Lorraine Candy and ‘Tiddler’ by Julia Donaldson.

Our Year Six pupils who sat for the 11+ entrance exams will be going home to a number of offers to prestigious schools and a flurry of scholarships.  We congratulate them and celebrate their hard work and dedication that has been put in.
