Newsletter – 24th February 2020


The end of another successful half term at Chalkwell Hall is upon us – it’s amazing how much is packed into a single half term. It is down to how keen our children are to get involved, along with the hard work of our staff and the support of our community, that makes our school such an exciting and fun place to be. My thanks to everyone for their efforts and long may it continue!


This week Year 5 had a visit from artist John Wonnacott who showed them how he works and gave them opportunities to try out his methods for themselves. It was a fascinating visit for the children and hopefully has inspired even more of them in their creative endeavours!


The boys did really well in the two friendly matches against Bournes Green last Friday, winning 5-2 and losing 3-2 in a couple of very good games. Our second league fixture, against West Leigh, ended in a 4-4 draw after a very competitive and hard-fought encounter in blustery conditions.


Our Year 3&4 football team are playing at Len Forge today. They have won all 3 games so far this morning – fingers crossed for the rest of the day!

All the boys who represented us over the last week have done so brilliantly and are a credit to Chalkwell Hall – well done all!
