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

Cinderella project comes to life!

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.
