We are continuing to keep our children busy in the garden, removing the spring flowers that have died and preparing for the summer stems. With all the hard work they're putting in we're sure to see another burst of amazing colour as the new season starts and more fantastic flowers stretch out of the ground. Its lovely to see so many of the children developing green fingers and caring for our garden.
On Monday afternoons our nursery children are now taking French. These lessons are a great opportunity for the children to discover aspects of another country and build their confidence about learning a new language.
We're eargerly awaiting the arrival of caterpillars to our Sunflower Class. The caterpillars have been very kindly organised by a parent to help our children as they learn about minibeasts. The children will be monitoring the caterpillars as they transform into butterflies. Seeing this process in real life helps children to understand and remember how metamorphosis takes place.
The process of extending our school begins over half term. A new classroom is being added over the old garage and the main works will be completed over the school summer holidays.
On Tuesday 25th February from 6-7pm our Spring open evening takes places. We look forward to welcoming prospective pupils and parents, as well as those who already attend, and answering any questions you may have.
An important part of the education we provide at Chingford House School is taking children to local places of interest, including parks and museums, the swimming pool and fire station. These visits help to build the range of experiences children have and their confidence in different situations.
Our primary school children, with gardening teacher Mrs Jill, have brought Spring to Chingford House School. Their hard work planting bulbs has created a wonderful display of primroses, crocuses, daffodils and snowdrops which really do bring a smile to the face as you approach our main entrance.
Our fantastic new construction set is being used by children to build a tunnel so large it’s big enough for them to climb into and one budding architect, Alec, has constructed a replica of the Shard.
Music is a big part of the education we provide at Chingford House School. Not only is it a fun activity but it’s a great way of helping children learn about different subjects and apply some discipline to learning a new skill.
In response to feedback that parents would like to have further involvement and input into the school, we have recently held our first parents and carers forum.
