Little Hadham Primary’s very own Netball Tournament!

We are thrilled to share the success of the recent inter-school netball competition organized by Mrs. Goodger and Matt. The event showcased great skills and sportsmanship from all participants. While there were some disappointments along the way, the highly competitive atmosphere kept everyone engaged and excited- we do like to win here at Little Hadham Primary. Most importantly, everyone had fun and enjoyed the spirit of friendly competition.

Well done to all the children who took part. We look forward to more such opportunities in the future!

Great Notley Country Park

Early Years had a wonderful school trip to Great Notley Country Park and the children thoroughly enjoyed the Very Hungry Caterpillar session. Activities included caterpillar and butterfly relay races, matching games and an art activity – and this was all before lunch! The afternoon was spent wandering through a meadow with nets, searching for insects and creatures. Bumblebees, ants, crickets and spiders were among some of the ones we discovered. We then enjoyed shaking the trees to hunt for even more insects! Caterpillars, beetles and flies were soon falling down onto our sheets. The children found it fascinating to see all the different insects. The adults were incredibly proud of how well behaved they were throughout the day. Our Park Ranger even commented on how lovely they all were. The children learnt so much from exploring the country park and really enjoyed themselves. There were plenty of tired and happy faces on the coach on the way home

The Magical World Of Spelling!

We are delighted to share that Mrs. Martin our SENCo  delivered a highly informative spelling workshop for parents. The session was filled with useful tips and strategies to help support your children’s spelling at home.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended. Your participation and support are greatly appreciated. For those who couldn’t make it, here are some helpful hints from the workshop:

  • Practice regularly: Consistent practice helps reinforce spelling rules.
  • Use fun activities: Games can certainly make learning to spell enjoyable.
  • Encourage reading: Exposure to different words in context can improve spelling skills.
  • Create a positive environment: Praise and encouragement can boost confidence and motivation.

Thank you once again for your ongoing support. Together, we can make a significant difference in our children’s learning journey.

Maple Class Bring the Past to us-LIVE!

We are thrilled to share the success of Maple Class’s recent performance on the Ancient Egyptians! The children showcased their dramatic skills brilliantly, using their voices and singing to bring the historical period to life. Their movements, gestures, and facial expressions added depth and excitement to the performance.

The children definitely enjoyed performing the play for you, and it was evident in their enthusiasm on stage. They also impressed everyone with their knowledge of history, especially the more gory and intriguing facts about the Ancient Egyptians.

Thank you to all the parents who attended and supported our young performers. It was a memorable experience for everyone involved!

Crucial Crew Workshops

On Tuesday, we joined other local schools and took part in the annual Crucial Crew workshops. These workshops are designed to help us learn how to stay safe. With fun activities delivered by the Police, Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service, National Railways, and more, we certainly had a busy time!

During one of our activities, we had the opportunity to practice CPR and the recovery position. The Ambulance Service praised our efforts, saying we were the best group they had seen performing CPR – it’s good to know we are in safe hands!

Additionally, a drama group from one of the local secondary schools gave a brilliant performance about resisting peer pressure. There was even enough time for us to climb into the back of a police van as we learned about the age at which we can be held criminally responsible.

Standing Together Against Racism!

Children in Year 4, 5, and 6 recently took part in an important workshop called “Show Racism the Red Card.” This workshop aimed to educate our students about discrimination, the reasons behind it, and how to stand up to racism.

During the session, the children learned that people may face discrimination due to their skin color, nationality, culture, or religion. The workshop emphasised the importance of recognizing these injustices and the role each of us plays in combating them.

We encourage all our students and their families to remember: if you see racism, don’t suffer in silence. Speak up and tell someone! We are incredibly proud of our students for their thoughtful participation and the insightful discussions that emerged from this workshop. It is our hope that these experiences will empower them to contribute to a more inclusive and respectful community.

This initiative aligns with our commitment as a Rights Respecting School, ensuring that every child knows their rights and respects the rights of others. Together, we can create a safe and inclusive environment for everyone.

 

Water Area… Reading Shed… It’s all happening in Beech this week!

We are excited to share some wonderful news from Beech Class this week! Our classroom has received some fantastic new equipment, bringing great joy and excitement to the children.

New Water Area: The children have been thoroughly enjoying our new water area. This fantastic addition offers them a wonderful opportunity to explore and develop their mathematical measuring skills in a fun and engaging way. They have been busy measuring, pouring, and experimenting, all while learning important concepts in a hands-on manner.

Brand New Reading Shed: Starting next week, we will be introducing a brand new reading shed! We believe in encouraging the children to read in a variety of settings, and this new space will offer a tranquil and inviting environment for their reading adventures. The reading shed will provide a cozy and serene place where the children can immerse themselves in their favorite books, fostering a love for reading in a unique and enjoyable setting. Thank you to Mr Hutt and Mr Trundle for organising and building these learning treats for us!

A Truly Well Deserved Treat

Willow Class celebrated the end of SATs week with a delicious (and well-deserved!) ice cream. A big thank you to Ms. Connolly for organizing this treat! The students enjoyed the special breakfasts and the ice cream so much that they wished it could be SATs week every week…well, maybe not! But they will certainly miss the breakfasts and the ice cream!

Testing Times!

This week Willow Class completed their SATs assessments in Reading, Grammar, Spelling and Maths. They took each day in their stride and there were plenty of smiles all round. The yummy SATs breakfast each morning might have had something to do with their good mood and positive outlook!

Exploring Tropical Modernist Architecture with the V&A Museum

It wasn’t all SATS for Willow Class. Today they got to participate in an online workshop with the V&A Museum, diving into the fascinating world of Tropical Modernist architecture.

This architectural style emerged in the 1940s in response to the hot, humid climates of West Africa. Tropical Modernism is known for its innovative design solutions that blend modernist principles with practical strategies for managing the tropical environment.

One of the highlights of the workshop was learning about and creating our own Brise Soleil. This is a technique used to design structures that provide shade and cast beautiful shadows on the exteriors of buildings, helping to keep them cool.

Willow Class had a fantastic time, and it was a wonderful opportunity for them to engage with architecture and design in a hands-on way.
