Christmas Songs at St Michael’s Church

Father Geoff talked about kindness and celebration to the children when Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes visited St Michael’s Church this week.

This was our third visit to St Michaels this term.  The choir performed beautifully at the Craft Fair earlier this term.  The children also attended a Harvest Celebration in the Autumn.



Beat the Street

The children all have their Beat the street Key rings to tap at the stations to earn points. So look out for the stations with the Beat the street logo on.

Beat the Street Hertfordshire is designed to encourage and inspire communities to walk to school, to work and to the shops rather than by car. It will run from 3rd June until 15 July 2015 and anyone living or working or at school in Stevenage, Broxbourne, Hemel Hempstead or Watford will be eligible to take part.

You can find out more and see how our school is doing on the website by clicking the following link Beat the street.

Good luck to everyone and have a good time walking.



Chater has talent

On Wednesday 22nd April some of the children at Chater treated an audience to wonderful display of talent at the Multi Cultural centre on Durban Road West. We were treated to stand-up comedy, singing, dancing, and musicians. The children worked hard to practice their performances and performed with pride. Well done to all the children that performed and thank you to everyone who helped and came to show support.
