  • Message from Tilly - Yellow Team Sport's Ambassador (Mrs Bratley)

    "Hi Yellow Team,

    I know it is very different to do the games at home this year but I also know that it will be soooo fun so go out and get sporty. When you do, here is something to think about - get outside, get sporty and win those points because I know that once you have done an activity you will feel sooooo proud of yourself! 

    It might be hard at first because of the exhausting heat of the summer and it is going to get hotter but when you're out there doing the really fun RAINBOW GAMES, you will forget the heat and will just have fun. Another thing to think about is - it's not about getting more points than your friends or winning it's about having lots and lots of fun whether you're at home or at school. 

    Please remember to send Mrs Bratley some pics on the DB primary and let her know how you're getting on.  I know this will be lots of fun.

    I hope this will encourage  you to continue in your RANBOW GAME activities and training. Have fun!!!

    From your yellow team captain and sports ambassador,  Tilly smiley"

    If you don't know what team you are in, don't worry, you will be told when you are in school.

  • Cross Country- report by HL (Mrs Stratton)

    On Friday 13th March, 22 children from Years 3,4,5 and 6 went to Carver Barracks for the Cross Country 2nd heat. While the Year 3/4 ran 2/3 of a mile (1km), which was 2 laps of the field, Years 5/6 had to run a mile (1.6km). It was very tiring, but everyone tried their best and completed the course well. We were very pleased it wasn't raining!

  • High Five Netball (Mrs Stratton)

    The Year 6 girls took part in a High 5s Netball afternoon this week, hosted by Mrs Dunlop at JFAN. Lots of learning opportunities to put the drills learned into PE into practice and a great opportunity for the girls to work together as teams.

  • Fitness Club (Mrs Stratton)

    Fitness club has been running this half term. Each session we have focussed on a different set of skills- this week was reflexes and reactions. The session start with a very competive circuit of bean-bag air hockey.


  • Swimming Gala Report: Chloe and Bethan (Mrs Stratton)

    Swimming Gala

    On Wednesday the 15th of January, some KS2 children attended the annual swimming gala at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre. We competed in different events including: the medley relay; freestyle relay and 25 metre or 50 metre single events. Even though, for some people, it was terrifying,we all had heaps and heaps of fun. Our favourite part was when we were cheering on our friends when they were racing and being in the water doing what we love.

    Year 3 and 4 came an astonishing 2nd and year 5 and 6 also came 2nd. The year 6 girls ,who have taken part over the years, will definitely miss this amazing experience, as it was their last ever swimming gala they will ever do representing Chrishall Primary School. We all did extemely well in all our races. Most people received at least one certificate but the judging was very harsh.The year 6 all agreed that they finished their last swimming gala with Chrishall on a high note and in style.

  • All Aboard for the Marvellous Mayans (Mrs Stratton)

    Class Newton are straight back into their learning this week, becoming quest seekers as we follow the two main characters through the Jaguar Stones: Book 1: Middleworld. The children have been introduced to Max- not a very inspiring hero at the moment- and the ever so cool character of Lola. We will  be using this text to inspire the creation of quest stories, which the children will present through stop frame animation over the next couple of months. The children will also be learning about the Mayan culture to enable them to develop the stories steeped in legend and mystery. 

    The children used maps and atlases to identify the countries of Mesoamerica adn which modern day countries formed the Mayan Civilisation. They also found out the meaning of the word civilisation and what made the Maya so civilised.

    Using their new knowledge and persuasive language, they wrote letter to Max to persuade him to learn more about the Mayan culture.

    Please look at the Experience Outcome, Home Learning and Knowledge organiser tabs for more information.

    ?It was the first fitness club for our 'Make a Change' SMSC theme. Great to see lots of fun (and aerobic activity).



  • Dodgeball (Mrs Stratton)

    DODGE BALL Sports Leaders’ report y Year 6 and 5 leaders.

    On Wednesday 13th November 2019, Class Newton took part in a dodge ball tournament at JFAN and we were very successful. We had a lot of fun and luckily, the black team (Team A), managed to go through to the finals. We will play on Wednesday 20th November. We hope they will do well.

    On Wednesday 20th November, Team A, took part in the Dodgeball Tournament and played extremely well. Over all they came 10th out of 16 other competitive schools, with lots of schools tying for positions.

    The team  played well together and were organised and when we had to choose subs. They all took it in turns and were fair. They had lots of fun when playing, and we hope Class Newton will have another chance to play in a dodgeball tournament again before the Year 6s leave. Our star players were chosen because one was always willing to give up all her energy on court and the other was determined to try his best and give it his all to try a win. Class Newton can’t want for the next tournament.

  • Boccia, Bouncing and Kurling (Mrs Hill) (Mrs Stratton)

    On Wednesday, 2 teams from Chrishall took part in the Uttlesford boccia and kurling tournament at Lord Butler leisure centre. Both games required precision and tactics. Each team performed brilliantly and we were delighted when the team from Class Lowry won a silver medal in boccia. The teams also enjoyed a fun breaktime having a go on the trampoline.
    Well done to everyone involved.

  • Sports Leaders' Report: Chrishall girls v Chesterford girls (Mrs Stratton)

    On Thursday 2nd of May Newton girls played a football match against Great Chesterford. It was a lucky win for Chrishall, the score came at 4-0. Our goal keeper, Bethan, managed to save an uncountable amount of close goals. Also our defenders, Megan and Hetty, were able to move the ball up pasted the Centre of the football pitch. Then we have our mid-fielders, Darcey, Rachel and Rosie, who were passing the ball up the pitch for our attacker, Chloe. We all listened to each other and passed to each other and because of this we managed to score our first goal. We had high hopes for the second half and these were realised. Now we are hoping to develop our skills for the next season; we would also like to invite some year 4 boys and girls to training as they will be able to come next season.

  • Netball Tournament (Mrs Bratley)

    Last week, a team of year five and year six children were selected to play at a High Five netball tournament at SWCHS in Saffron Walden.  Wearing the school's new netball kit and jackets, they looked really smart and were proud to be representing the school.  Having arrived at the venue, the team had time for a quick bit of lunch, before playing their first three matches in the opening round.  As Manuden was also participating, it was great to be able to cheer each other on during matches.  With a few winning games behind them, the team grew in confidence and were able to really develop their netball skills throughout the tournament.  Well Done Chrishall, a wonderful afternoon and sporting performance!



  • Football (rmordini.chrishall.essex)

    The school football team has been playing in a league over the past half term and has shown fantastic improvement in their team play and skill level. Our most recent opponent, Newport Primary, forfeited their match so we held a training session followed by a valuable practice match.
