  • Lent and Easter, Ramadan and Eid

    This year the holy months of Lent and Ramadan coincide. This means that whilst Lent comes to an end with the celebration of Easter, half way through the spring term, Ramadan will continue until after we return to school. Of course the aspect that the children most enjoy is the celebration at the end. Either Easter eggs in abundance or family gatherings and gifts for Eid.

    We’re pleased to inform you that there will be Easter eggs at Easter and parents are planning a big Eid celebration for Friday 5th May. Please make a note of this date in your diaries

  • The Great Big Clean Up!

    The Great Big Clean Up is taking place all over the UK right now!

    The Eco-team went out with their litter pickers last Friday and they found a surprising amount of litter, especially cigarette ends, in Torbay Lane and at the front of the school.

    They are organising an anti-litter poster competition for the school and they will write to the owners of the market to ask them to put a cigarette bin in Torbay Lane.

    Let’s Keep Britain Tidy!

  • Red Nose Day

    On Friday 17th March we celebrated RED NOSE DAY at Hawley. Having spoken to the children in recent weeks about the various tragedies that have been taking place around the world, they were very keen to raise money for children who may have lost their homes and their families.

    We decided to have a Dance-a-thon. We stopped several times throughout the day to dance to The Macarena and raise money by doing so. Of course, the day was not complete without parents joining in and so at the end of the day many of you joined us!

    We would like to say an enormous thank you to all of the families who went out and got sponsorship from friends, family, neighbours and the wider community.

    You helped us raise a record breaking £1,235.55. This is by far the highest total that we have ever sent to Comic Relief

  • Festive Brass in Camden Market!

  • Our Christmas Fair is just around the corner!

  • 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.
