Good afternoon CHS Parents


We hope this email finds you well.


Poet visit on Monday, 1 February

We feel very lucky to have the poet, James Carter, coming in on Monday, 31 January.  Mr Carter will be delivery assemblies and workshops throughout the school during the course of the day.  He is a critically-acclaimed children’s poet and writer–in–schools. It may be helpful to see if there are any questions your child might have over the weekend that they can ask Mr Carter on Monday.  You’ll find all kinds of information on the link below: poems, music, writing tips, an interview – as well as information on his work in schools, libraries and literary festivals:


Carnival Day on Friday, 11 February

CHS will be holding a themed dress up day on Friday 11 February.  The theme will be ‘Around the World in 8 hours’.  We would love the children to dress up as a creative character,  e.g.


  • My name is Cleopatra and I am the Queen of Egypt
  • My name is Frida Kahlo and I am an artist from Mexico
  • My name is Bruce Springsteen and I am a singer from America


We would encourage the children to be as creative as possible and to be able to have some insight into their character and background.
