- To the whole community @ Little Hadham Primary School (12/22/2021)
Today I have been blown away with kindness, surprises, unbelievable words and gratitude beyond my comprehension! I cannot express my emotions as I sit quietly at home this evening trying to take it all in and make sense of the very special day that I have just had.
It all started relatively quietly as we realised that we only had three children in the Early Years for the day, but the peace soon ended. I was shown the most amazing PowerPoint of my life and times at Little Hadham i (huge thanks to Mrs Lammin), was presented with my very own forest popcorn maker (thank you Mr. Trundle), met many of my very first Class (2009) (WOW Guys! Thank you for coming and thank you Ms. Bland), received wonderful cards from each class containing some heartfelt writing and watched another emotional PowerPoint made by Year 6.
I have been overwhelmed with cards, gifts, memories and kind words. I was given an incredible book that so many families, past and present, have collaborated to make which has touched me deeply (huge thanks to Nikki Handley and Louise Battle). The Staff rounded off the day with a wonderful little tea party outside (thank you Ms. Connolly). It was at this point that I became acutely aware that I was actually about to have to say ‘goodbye’ to my life at Little Hadham School.
All I can say is that I have had the most wonderful 12 years. I have enjoyed teaching the Early Years, in the amazing classroom that is ‘The Unit’, and then having the privilege of seeing the children grow as they progress through the school. I discovered a new love in Forest School in 2014 and am extremely proud of the important position it now holds at Little Hadham. I have worked with so many amazing families, children and colleagues. I have just had the happiest of times within such a great little school and cannot thank you all enough for your friendship and support.
Many thanks to everyone who made such an effort to make my last day at Little Hadham totally memorable and truly unforgettable. Your gifts have humbled me. Thank you does not even start to cover my feelings of gratitude. But it is the words and emotion that I will take away with me and remember forever…
“… Alfie and I (Arthur) remember the secret code in the forest … 1, 2, 3 where are you? So, if you ever need us … 1. 2, 3 we’re over here”
How safe do I feel as I move on to my next adventure knowing that I still have all those friends at Little Hadham! Thank you each and every one of you, from the bottom of my singing heart.

Huge congratulations to Beech Class, what a performance- definitely stars in the making! It was so lovely to be able to come together and watch these amazing performers; some having to take on new parts moments before! Well done to Mrs Samuels, Mrs Bland and Mrs Lammin for all your organising, costume design and choreography- we loved every minute of it.

- Cinderella project comes to life! (11/5/2021)
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.
- A ‘Spooktacular’ End to the Term (10/22/2021)
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!
- Celebrating Harvest Time at Little Hadham (10/19/2021)
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!
- Friends… the one where we recruited new members! (9/30/2021)
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.
- The return of Hot Chocolate and giggles! (9/17/2021)
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.
