CHS News May 2016

 

More Smiles Appeal at St Mary’s Hospital

The end of term photography competition raised £145.95 for the fund and we received a lovely thank you letter from Laura Watts, Head of Community and Events Fundraising, thanking CHS children and parents for their good efforts.

 

Marble Arch Business Improvement

Following on with community matters, we had a visit from Ruth Sherski and Roberta Boschi, two very helpful ladies who explained more about the Community Project for the Marble Arch area. They are very keen to hear from local people about any concerns such as dumped rubbish, noise or vagrancy issues.

Test Week

During next week, several form groups (but not all) will be tested on maths and literacy using INCAS (Interactive Computerised Assessment System). These are diagnostic and not competitive tests and the expectation is that they will be a useful indicator of the children’s skills and their attitude to learning. Teachers will use this information to discuss the children’s progress with parents at the Parent Meetings after half term.

 

During the week after half term, teachers will give the children a general test (or tests) covering subject knowledge for the year, most of these will have multi choice answers. Form Teachers will provide more detailed information to children and parents next week.

 

Reminder about Half Term

School finishes at the usual time on Thursday, 19th May, for the half term break.

On Friday morning, there will be the New Children’s Induction Morning when we are looking forward to meeting the 2016 Junior One group. Very hard to believe that our current Junior One will soon be ready to join Miss Steel in September!

 

During the second half of the term, the form groups will have the opportunity to spend time with their new form teacher when they visit their new classroom and, later, their parents will have the opportunity to meet the new teachers at an after-school presentation.

 

In the meanwhile, we hope the children a lovely sunny half term, whether staying in London or off to exotic places!
