Come along to the Great Fete at school tomorrow (Saturday) from 10am to 1pm. We'll have games, a raffle, lots of cakes and other goodies to buy. And the best part is that all the money we raise goes directly to the school to benefit all Chesterton children. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
Our teaching team have been researching the best websites to support your child's learning at home. They've put together a fantastic list to support Maths, Literacy, Science, Art and Geography at Key Stages 1 and 2. Please take a look at this link. If there are any you think we've missed we'd love to hear your suggestions!
A reminder that school is closed for pupils on Monday 26 June for our staff INSET day. Look forward to seeing you all again on Tuesday.
Our Chesterton school uniform is really important to help all pupils' sense of belonging, and also in helping to show our local community that we're a school that takes pride in itself. Please support your child and the school by making sure correct uniform is worn every day. This includes - ties for all pupils in Key Stage 2, minimal hair accessories, no jewellery except small studs. Details of all uniform items are at this link.
