  • Year 6 Brass Concert in Camden Market!

    Next Friday, 2nd December, our Year 6 class will play some Christmas tunes and will be collecting money for charity in Camden Market (Stables entrance) at 2pm. This will be their first public performance and so it would be great if some of you could come along to support them…..and drop some coins in their bucket!

  • Hawley Tea Towel

    Last week the children drew self-portraits for the creation of school tea towels. We did this once before, many years ago, and this brought back many memories. What a wonderful way to raise funds for the school. We cannot wait to see the finished product.

  • Exciting Cricket Project!

    Last term we were approached  by Platform Cricket to be part of an exciting funded project to teach children to learn and progress through teaching them how to play cricket. This project is targeted at Year 4 pupils this year and is free , in the first year.  We will have two coaches teaching the children  every Friday morning over the next five weeks. They had their first session this Friday and had a fantastic time.

  • Harvest Assembly

    Our first assembly for the term was held last Wednesday and it was splendid to hear the beautiful singing and  poetry written by Year 3 and Year 4 for our Harvest Assembly. The singing and the assembly were joyful and took us back to pre-covid days, when we had such gatherings. Thank you to all of those who attended and to all who contributed to our collection for the local food bank.

  • Camden Cross Country Tournament

    Last Friday, Year 5 and 6 took part in a Camden wide cross country tournament at Parliament Hill against other schools. It was superb to see the children complete a gruelling 1.2km course. Congratulations to all the children who took part and showed fantastic resilience and determination on the day! Well done!

  • Queen Elizabeth II

    This week, the children have been reflecting upon the loss and life of Queen Elizabeth II. We held a special assembly to discuss her life and remembered the lovely time we had last summer celebrating her Platinum Jubilee.

    As a mark of respect, the school will be closed on Monday 19th September 2022.

  • Hawley Primary School’s pocket of Regent’s Canal

    Have you had a stroll along Regent’s Canal recently? If so, you may have seen a wonderful mural and wildlife area that Hawley Pupils have helped to develop.

    As part of the canal’s bicentenary celebrations, last year’s Year 2 and 4 classes worked closely with Mike Wakeford from the Canal and River Trust to rejuvenate this hitherto slightly unloved area of the canal. Our pupils had various sessions where they brainstormed ideas that would help to attract and nurture local wildlife. So there is now a lovely welcoming space for bats, bugs and various birds! Along the way our pupils picked up lots of science, STEAM and art enrichment. 

    Why not take an outing to Kings Cross this weekend and admire the space along the way? If you do, please e-mail us a picture and tell us about any wildlife you spot there.
