A well deserved hot chocolate treat today after a very busy morning!
Skipping, music and dance to be had tonight at after school club; what fun!
With all the Bazaar things going on here on Friday, we postponed our hot choc til today; what a lovely chilly day for it too!
Another experiential learning opportunity that we are currently offering the pupils is a chance to understand the importance of a general election and democracy within our society. Pupils in Year 6 have researched political manifestos and split themselves up into 4 political parties. They will be campaigning in school (posters, presentations and speaking to others) to try and persuade other pupils to vote for their party, based on their policies. We will then be holding a mock general election on the 11th, where every pupil will have the opportunity to have a vote in our Little Hadham Polling Station.
Little Hadham held its annual Christmas Bazaar on Friday. Thank-you to everyone who came out to support our school in style. Because of all your support, we’ve managed to raise over £2,300 for our school and that figure is hopefully going up with some match funding! Big organisations offer charity match funding as a matter of course, please remember to ask your employers.
Highlights of this year’s event included our Red stall as well as Santa’s Grotto, name the teddy- well done Max in Willow, as well as our ever popular decorated brown paper bags. Of course we mustn’t forget the popular chocolate and bottle Tombola stalls where children and parents alike were trying their best to bring home the goods!
Thank-you to all the parents who baked for our baking stall, there were some yummy treats to be had by all which were washed down with mulled wine and juice!
Thank-you to everyone who helped organise this event and make it such a success, but most importantly a big shout out goes to the Christmas Bazaar Team (Chloe Burroughs, Kathryn Rutty, Rachel Hider, Gill Sharpe, Sam Fortune, Sam Day, Mary Ward and Nicola Purton) for all their hard work and constant dedication.
Today we held a very sad and emotional day as we said goodbye to Mr Leonard. The children shared some great memories of him and told him how much of inspiration he has been here at Little Hadham. We all wish him the very best in his new role.
The pupils had a great time telling jokes to comedian Paddy Lennox who came in to judge The Voice Box competition. Paddy shared with us what it’s like to be a comedian and then listened to a variety of jokes. The pupils joined into help him choose the winning joke- well done Cameron!
We have all enjoyed ten happy weeks of after school forest club but … all good things come to an end and today we made hot chocolate using the Kelly Kettle and raised our cups to Forest School. The forest really does does bring a sense of peace and happiness to Tuesday evenings – we will be back in 2020!
What a lovely display of work from our artists- thank you Mrs Ogden!
