Pupils and staff at Little Hadham Primary welcomed 17 visiting European teachers from their partner schools in Spain, Italy Poland, Croatia and Greece this week as part of the EU’s Erasmus+ Project. What an amazing week we have all had, the participating teachers had the wonderful opportunity to discuss different approaches and methods for inclusion as well as strategies for the wellbeing and resilience of our pupils.
However, the part they enjoyed the most was observing lessons, they also observed a Yoga lesson, a Forest school session and shared presentations and videos of their schools and towns with the pupils. They had nothing but praise for our children who put them to task with numerous questions and anecdotes.
We were so proud of the way our children welcomed everyone and sang to them songs in Italian, Spanish and Greek in a celebratory music assembly. The visitors praised their outstanding behaviour, fantastic attitudes to learning and warm smiles!
It was such a joy to share our wonderful school with our visitors and to hear and see how amazed they were with our children and all we do- it was a very proud moment for us all here.
Thank you so much to everyone who was involved in organising the Halloween Disco last night. The children had so much fun and looked fab in their costumes. More than £200 has been raised, well done everyone and what a fantastic way to end the term!
Today we celebrated our Harvest Festival and what a fantastic assembly it was. We gathered our thoughts, reminding ourselves to give thanks for the food we receive, and also too time to reflect on those who are less fortunate than us. Each class sang a song. Wow.. it was so lovely to have us all singing again in assembly especially when the whole school joined in with the infamous, ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’ song. I do hope you all take time to watch your child’s class sing on Seesaw and Tapestry- it really is worth it and what talent we have here in Little Hadham!
Thank you very much to the people that attended the Friends’ meeting this week. We had a great turnout and it was lovely to see lots of new faces. During the meeting we discussed what money we had raised for the school and how our children benefit. We also discussed how we need to raise more money for the children and what events to achieve this.
Our main discussion was about trying to get new members on board the Friends, how it all works and how important the Friends actually is to the school and our children. We have put a date in the diary for our Christmas Bazzar and have appointed year group reps to send out messages and keep all our Friends updated.
Lots of stories here this morning while enjoying a hot chocolate after a busy week of learning and activities. Well done everyone and keep up the great attitude.
Our Willow Class- Year 6 children were invited to present a speech to the whole school in assembly as part of the application process to become a school captain. What an fantastic job they all did. We were so impressed with the amount of children that took part and also with how they presented themselves- enormous well done to everyone- standing ovation please!
The whole school took part in the election process. It has really helped add a new dimension to democracy within the school. The children listened very carefully to all the speeches, laughing and nodding in all the right places!
Drum roll… This year’s school captains are Alfie, Liam, Busby and Orla. Well done everyone and I look forward to working with you from Monday! A huge congratulations and I hope you all do something nice to celebrate!
Yes, clubs are back we are running… gardening, cookery, football multi-sports, journalism and e-twinning clubs after school. There are still some spaces left in some clubs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to sign up!
I hope that you’ve had a fun filled summer holiday. It’s been wonderful seeing the children return to school full of enthusiasm and excitement for the year ahead. A very warm welcome to our new families who may have also joined us this term. Little Hadham is a fabulous school with lots of opportunities for you to get involved and be a part of the action!
It is such a pleasure to see the whole school back in the dining room and classes playing together during break, the children have impressed us with their positive attitude and their enthusiasm for learning– long may it continue!
I appreciate your support as parents and please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have a question or query.
