The weekly blog - keeping you up-to-date with school life; Stars of the Week; Housepoint winners and much more..

What a fantastic week at school with all children enjoying the celebrations for our Queen's jubilee.  The children are well underway creating their DT projects of recycling a shoe and making it into something that shows how we celebrate 70 years of service.  The children have also begun to paint the pebbles that will create our jubilee path across the front of the school, where the trench has been prepared.


As you may be aware our Year 6 pupils are off to Berlin next week accompanied by Mr Hatcliffe, Mrs Hughes and myself.  If you have any concerns or questions, please direct them to Mrs Embling or Mr Timlin, the senior leadership team staying at school.  If you worry is around safeguarding, please see Miss Dickson or Mrs Jenkins who sit on our inclusion team and they will be able to deal with all concerns.

The winning house this week is: St. Patrick - well-done everyone in this house.

2nd place: St. Andrew

3rd place: St. David

4th place: St. Geroge

To build on how effective our housepoint system is, I have set a competition for all the children.  It is worth 100 housepoints for 4 winners.  One from each house.  On an A4 piece of paper, the children have been asked to design a flag for their house.  It must reflect the Saint that the house is named after and must then reflect Chiseldon to bring it back to our school.


This will then be made into flags - one on a stick so that the house captain can lead their team to assemblies or sports events and another to fly on our flag pole outside for the winning house each week.  The children have a couple of weeks to draw/create their flag.  the top 5 in each house will then be voted for by staff and children before going to the printers to have it made.



This week's winners with 99%, is Year 6 - brilliant job well done for being in school every day.


Whole school attendance is: 94.4%, which is not bad considering that we had two outbreaks at the beginning of the year.  Keep up the good work for the final 6 weeks of term.


Transition Days

I have decided like last year, we are going to have whole school transition days at school so that children get to work with next year's teachers before we break for the summer holiday.  The transition days will be on a Wednesday and they will work with the teacher for the entire day.  The dates for our transition are Wednesday 29th June and Wednesday 6th, 13th July 2022.  It will be extremely important for your child to be in school so that they do not miss this excellent opportunity to help them settle.


I hope that you have had a great weekend and I am sorry that this is rather late.
