Sunshine and Smiles at Gilwell


All arrived happy and full of excitement and ready for their first activity. What glorious sunshine we are having- truly deserved of course!

We love Multi-Sports Friday!

What a lovely end to a very busy week- even if it was only four days! This club certainly is popular and we love seeing the children head home with happy, energetic faces.

Have a lovely weekend.

Summer Term has certainly commenced…

It’s fabulous to see everyone back and eager to learn and explore. I have been around every class and was delighted to see all children in and actively taking part in all their lessons. We even had time for some hot chocolate and a catch up today- which is always a Friday treat for me. Remember to check your children’s class on the website to see all what they have been learning- you will certainly be impressed.

Dance, dance wherever you may be…

Some of Lime Class children had the opportunity with Saracens Foundation Participants to perform pre-game and half-time at the 60,000 capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which is one of the newest and most exciting venues in Europe. They performed 1 dance pre-game and 1 dance at half time and loved every minute of it. We heard from our dance coach that they were the best behaved group, no surprises there, and that they were brilliant dancers. Well done all of you that took part and to your parents for giving up the time to go. We are super proud of you all.

It’s all Greek to Lime Class!

Lime Class took us on a trip to Greece with fabulous story telling and amazing songs. What amazing clear voices and  we were super impressed with your acting skills. Well done Lime Class,  you really are legends!

Lime Class mums get fit with their children…

The school was alive this morning with Lime Class mums here to their Boxercise session.  Fun and sweat was had by all and  thank you for your donations for the International Rescue Committee Charity. All donations are very much appreciated.

Comic Relief at Little Hadham!

For this Red Nose Day, our Willow Class chose to turn our school blue and yellow to show our support for the people of Ukraine. The children looked fabulous. Thank you so much for your wonderful donations this week and a big shout out to the Friends for organising the collection. You have shown great kindness and
compassion. It is truly appreciated. Thank you also for your kind donations for our bake sale at the end of today. All money raised from both the activities with go towards helping Ukrainians fleeing from crisis.


Science at its best!

As part of science week, Willow Class were delighted to have Mrs Pressland, who teaches science at Birchwood come in and teach them science. The children had a fantastic lesson and we are truly grateful to Mrs P for giving up her time. We were really impressed with the quality of work and the science language and understanding  that they were using and they have developed. Well done Willow Class, now you know what you have to look forward to at secondary school.

Back to school for Maple mums…

This week’s Boxercise session was with Maple Class and their mums. This was some workout, Maple Class really showed their skills and not much mercy, when boxing! Well done Maple and  super well done mums for taking part and for your donations to the International Rescue Committee charity- it is much appreciated.

Here’s to strong women: May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

Today we celebrated International Women’s Day by kicking off with with Willow class mums who joined their children to celebrate the strong and empowering women in our community for a session of boxercise. Each class have studied different famous empowering women and we look forward to seeing their learning and activities on their class pages on Friday.

As  March is women’s history month, we will be continuing with these boxercise sessions with each class and look forward to seeing Maple mums or female relatives next Tuesday at 8:55!

Remember, we would like to use this opportunity to raise some money for the International Rescue Committee charity, so all donations welcome on the day of your session.
