Another friendly, happy and calm forest club this week. Violet proved, once again, that she really is the fire striking queen (so quickly that I couldn’t even get a photo) and we all learnt that perseverance really does pay off!
This week we had wonderful presentations from Willow Class, where each child considered and explained what they would do to be a worthy school captain. The competition was tough and very close. Well done everyone for having the courage to stand up and take part- you were all very impressive! We are delighted to announce that this year’s School Captains and Vice Captains are: Lola, Louis, Cam and Lilia- We look forward to working with you; the list is getting longer already!
What a fantastic day of all things Dahl. The children looked amazing all dressed up and there were lots of Roald Dahl themed activities taking place around the school.
Mr Leonard set up a range of themed activities for lunch and break time. We had ‘Mrs Trunchbull’s Shotput‘, ‘Climb the Giraffe’s’ Neck‘, ‘The BFG dream catching‘ and ‘Augustus Gloop gets stuck in the Hoop‘.
What a great assembly we had today from ‘Music for Schools’. We were shown a range of instruments the children could learn, some children even got the chance to try some.
Please come along on Monday 16th September at 3.20pm to find out more!
Thank you to all the children who wanted to attend After School Forest and congratulations to the lucky 12 who were chosen. There will be more chances during the year for everyone to have a turn, we are just delighted that Forest School has become such a big part of school life at Little Hadham. Tonight really was a night of amazing climbing. Requests have been made for den making challenges, cooking, whittling, and fire lighting in future weeks – watch this space!
How lovely to get back to having hot chocolate with the children. It was great to catch up with all their news from the summer.
