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.

I’m Not Just a Potato…

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind.

This year children at Little Hadham School, brought potatoes alive with their creativity. They were given the brief of designing and producing their favourite book character – as a potato character!  What a novel and fun activity!  The characters all looked amazing and who knew you could do so much with a spud! The children loved visiting ‘The Potato Gallery’ to see all the creations.

Welcoming governors into school to read was a moment to cherish too. A shout out to the fantastic Mrs Tweedale for making this such a brilliant day / week of experiences. Congratulations to the winners Busby, Henry, Peter, Red, Scarlett, Blanche and Freddie. Let me know the title of the book and we will order it for you.

And just like that…

 

In what feels like the blink of an eye, we have made it through to half term, and what a busy half term it has been across the school! The children have made some fantastic progress and this can be seen in their final outcomes.

I mentioned in the newsletter that this week was  Children’s Mental Health Week. As a school, we recognise how important these things are for our entire community and work hard to educate everyone in developing their understanding and ability to support themselves and each other. Well done and thank you to all children and staff who participated so enthusiastically in the activities that were planned as part of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme for this year has been ‘Growing Together’, with ‘growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow’ being at the heart of all that has been explored with the children.

There is no time like ‘Quality time’. Put some time aside into spending quality, one to one time with your child. I know we spend lots of time with our child, having meals, washing them, getting them ready for bed. Put some time aside for that meaningful time when you can put away distractions and really listen and spend time with them. It’s those moments that build connection and improve your child’s self esteem.

Lots of wonderful learning in class has also been going on this week, so look out for the posts on the class pages of our website. Thanking all of our community for their wonderful support this half term, you are so appreciated.

Wishing you all a wonderful half-term

Ms Connolly

Huge congratulations to Beech Class, what a performance- definitely stars in the making!
