We have had an assembly and lessons about Remembrance day across school this week, including the children creating poppies for our Remembrance display. Thank you to everyone who sent a message. Our Year 2 children attended the Remembrance Day service at the town hall this morning and proudly read a remembrance poem to the audience.
Storytelling in our Newly Revamped Library November 2018
We have started weekly storytelling sessions with Lottie from Magic Box Storytelling. The children used the library for the first time today with Lottie and it was wonderful to see the library in use as a place to celebrate books, stories and reading. The children engaged very enthusiastically with the story of The Smartest Giant in Town.
Trick or Treat Disco October 2018
We had a terrific Trick or Treat disco on Tuesday 30th October. A great time was had by all and I must take this opportunity to thank the PTA for all their hard work preparing and organising this event. The decorations were amazing. We are happy to announce we raised over £300, this money will go towards purchasing new books for our revamped library.
Sports Day 2018
Sports day took place on Tuesday 19th June. It was great to see the children applying their games skills on the athletics track. Events included the standing long jump, sprint, hurdles, javelin, egg and spoon race, relay, sack race, bean bag target and penalty shootout. The children were all well prepared and eager to participate in all the events. They really enjoy running on this fabulous track. Rushcroft School provided the sports leaders who ran the events along with James Court, our Leyton Orient Healthy Hero and three Leyton Orient students. Without their invaluable help, it would be difficult to run this event on the athletics track. The event finished with a mums and dads race that is always one of the highlights for the children.
Summer Time Ball 2018
The last day of half term was a buzz of excitement as the children had a fabulous time at our Summer Time Ball on the 24th May. We had a great turn out and the event was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thank you to the PTA and staff who made this event a great success.
Royal Wedding School Lunch
In celebration of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding this weekend, all the children in school and nursery enjoyed a special royal lunch.
Kent Teague came into school on Tuesday 24th April 2018 to speak to Year 1 and 2 children. He is an ex Microsoft executive and the current owner and vice president of Leyton Orient. He had a talk with the children about football. The children also had the opportunity to ask questions about the difference between America and England. Thank you to Kent Teague for visiting Chapel End.
Ladies Day & World Book Day
Thank you to all the mums, sisters, grandmothers, aunties and all the other wonderful ladies who joined us on Thursday 1st March 2018 for a lovely day in school with the children. It was also world book day and the children dressed up as their favourite book characters! All the children looked fabulous in their wonderful costumes.
Everyone enjoyed getting involved in a wide range of activities including, painting, book making, PE and of course, reading books.
Thank you again to everyone who joined us, the children love to have their grown-ups with them in class. It really was a special day indeed.
Thank you for all you kind donations
On Friday 19th January, 20 children attended the Waltham Forest School Sports Network Golf competition. It was great fun and the children enjoyed competing in golf games such as Domino Rally and Three in a Row. The children enjoyed it so much that they want to go to more sporting events and some even dreamed about it!
When one was asked what they enjoyed they enthusiastically said, “Everything!” We don’t know if we have won a medal or not as the competition is ongoing but, as they say in The Olympics:”The most important thing is not to win but to take part. Just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle.”
Christmas Lunch & Christmas Jumper Day – 14th December 2017
Thank you to our wonderful catering staff who worked extremely hard to provide us all with our delicious Christmas lunch.
This was enjoyed by everyone whilst listening to carols and pulling a Christmas cracker.
Waltham Forest School Sports
On Friday 24th November, 16 children from Year 1 and 2 attended the Waltham Forest School Sports Network Sports Hall Athletics competition at Peter May. All the children ran, jumped, skipped, hopped and raced against 39 other teams from Waltham Forest schools. They also threw mini javelins and beanbags towards a target. It was a very busy morning and all the children did their very best in all of the events. Sadly, on this occasion, we did not win a medal but all the children were awarded certificates for their eager participation. Special thanks goes to the Year 7 Sports Leaders from Chingford Foundation School who managed all the events.
Cross Country Running 4th October 2017
On Thursday this week 32 Chapel End Infant children participated in the Waltham Forest School Sport Network Cross Country Running Competition. Over 27 schools competed with over 150 girls and 160 boys taking part. Our team did an amazing job, showing great determination and enthusiasm. Unfortunately, on this occasion we did not win a medal. However, all the children were a credit to our school and have been awarded a certificate.
Savannah in Pandas class and Kobe in Eagles were our first runners back both in 29th place, a superb achievement. Well done to all the children who took part and represented our school so proudly

Summer Fete and International Celebrations – 7th July 2017
We had a fantastic turn out for our Summer Fete and International Celebrations. It was great to see children with their families in their National Dress and tasting all the wonderful food from around the world. As I walked around and joined in the fun it was great to experience the real sense of community that we have built together. I hope you all enjoyed the event and I am extremely pleased to inform you that we raised £760.08. This money raised will go towards providing extra learning resources for the children. Thank you to all the parent helpers and staff for giving up your time, as without this support, events like this cannot take place.
Sports Day – 6th July 2017
Thank you to all the parents who came along to help, and cheer the children on, in our first ever sports day on the Feel Good Centre athletics track. There were hurdles, relay and sprint races, a standing long jump and javelin event as well as an egg and spoon race, sack race and penalty shootout. The children enjoyed all the events and particularly enjoyed running on the wonderful track. To finish the day Mr Court encouraged the adults to test the track in a series of sprint races and the speed with which the adults hurtled down the track was truly impressive! The day ran smoothly largely due to the help and support we received from Rushcroft School Sports Leaders. These sports leaders help to run sports events across the borough for both KS1 and KS2 events. The sports day was a wonderful way to celebrate and put into practice the skills we have been learning in school throughout the year. Well done, everyone and well done to the yellow team who were the overall winners!
Football Festival – 9th June 2017
12 Year 1 & 12 Year 2 children attended a Football Competition arranged by the Waltham Forest School Sports Network. The competition was organised ‘World Cup style’, where the children played in groups and the winner of each group went on to play in the quarter finals.
There were 30 teams in the tournament, representing 22 schools and around 240 Year 1 and 2 pupils played football on the day.
The semi-finals were eventually contested by the Chapel End Year 2 Team, Mission Grove, Mayville and Hillyfield. Our Year 2 team sadly lost to Mayville in the final but still came home with amazing silver medals.
All children attending were awarded certificates and behaved extremely well on the day.
The year 1 team played really well against older year 2 teams and only narrowly missed going to the quarter finals themselves.
Well done to all the children! We may have some future professionals in our midst.
Family Man Day 8th June 2017
It was great to see so many of the children’s male role models in school on Thursday for our Family Man Day. We have had fantastic feed back from you on how you all enjoyed learning and being creative with the children. Many pieces of art were created for the up and coming art trial exhibition which will be held on 15th June. The school kitchen staff were also praised for the school dinners being tasty and with a variety of dishes. Thank you for making this day enjoyable for you and your children and we hope to repeat this next academic year.
