We do ask parents and carers not to open the front door for other parents and carers. This is for security reasons and to ensure that strangers are not let in inadvertently. Please do not be offended by parents and carers not opening the door to you. They may know you but not the person standing behind you, for example. Then please ensure that when you are leaving you close the door firmly behind you.
Please could you make sure that your children's clothes are labelled. It is very difficult for us to remember which items belong to each child, especially as children frequently have multiple items of everything!
Welcome back after our summer break. We are all rested and enthusiastic about our new term. It has been great welcoming everyone again and also getting to know our new children and their familiies.
A reminder that the nursery will be closed from Monday August 22nd to September 2nd inclusive. We reopen on Monday September 5th,
Thank you so much for all your generous donations of books for Romanian children. We sent over 500 books to Romanian children and the organisation was absolutely delighted.
International Children's Day was last week and we would like to acknowledge this on Thursday June 16th. It will be Pyjama/Nightie day. All children are invited to wear their nightwear to school that day! They can wear their day clothes underneath if they would like to.
We will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of the book. All children are invited to dress up as one of the characters from the story. We will be learning poems and songs about the story and acting out little scenes from the story. Our dance and drama teachers are preparing something as well! And of course we will be baking jam tarts!
We will be holding our Sports Day for the children in Marigolds and Bluebells in Memorial Park. Parents and carers who are able to come please meet us there at 2.40pm. If your child is not usually attending on that day please take them yourselves to Memorial Park and we will meet you there. We ask that all children are dressed in our green polo shirts and bottle-green shorts or joggers. If cardigans/jumpers are required please wear our uniform cardigans/jumpers. After the races the children will have a picnic tea with us and then a little play at the park. We will then return back to Chingford House School.
We will be holding a Sports Day for our children in Roses, Sunflowers and Poppies in our garden. We will begin at 10.15am and afterwards the children will have a picnic lunch. Poppies will be the first to race, second will be Sunflowers and then third will be Roses. We do hope you can join us.
This will be for the children from Marigolds and Bluebells who will be going to primary school in September 2016. All parents/carers of these children are invited.
