  • Black History Month

    The caterers that provide our School Dinners put on a lovely Black History Day lunch. This consisted of Jerk Chicken and Rice, Jellof Quorn Rice, Sweet Corn & Peas Mixed Vegetable. For dessert we had a choice of Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes topped with a slice of Banana or Tropical Fruit Platter. Thank you Caterlink, it was delicious! 11.11.20

  • Hawley remember the Fallen Soldiers

  • Year 1

    Year 1 have been looking at paintings by Lancelot Ribeiro. He was an Indian modern artist who came to live in London. The children sketched a view of the London skyline and then painted it in this style. They practised using their paintbrush very carefully.

  • Year 2

    Gardening and Cooking with Clare and Oonagh every Friday afternoons.

    Every Friday afternoon a group of 6 children will go gardening with Clare and another group go cooking with Oonagh in the Hawley kitchen. 

    As it is harvest time Year 2 have been busy harvesting the school garden.  We have harvested potatoes, cucumbers, carrots and raspberries and strawberries amongst other things.  As well as harvesting, the children also plant seeds which we grow in the classrooms and in our greenhouse, until they are strong and big enough to plant outside.

    The vegetables and fruit that the children pick are then used to cook with in Oonagh’s cooking class.  So far they have made raspberry, apple and pear crumbles. Yummy!

  • Year 4

    Year 4 made string telephones to experience sound travelling as vibrations through a material. We discussed how sound waves sound louder when they are heard through solids. (Like the string of the telephones)

  • Reception

    Reception have had a lovely time settling into their new classroom and making friends. We have been pleased to welcome children from several local Nurseries as well as our own Hawley Nursery. We have enjoyed stories; looking after dollies in our baby clinic; making coffee and tea for “The Tiger who came to Tea”; using water on a hot afternoon outside and playing games as well as many other things. The children are all doing well with staying for lunch and this week started Music and PE classes. More photos to follow soon!

  • Year 1

    Year 1 went on a walk in the local area. We looked at the road signs, met some people from local shops and drew old and new homes. The whole class behaved really well on their first trip in Year 1!

  • Year 4

    Y4 have been busy.

    We have looked at how sound waves vibrate as they travel from the source of a sound to the ear. We used a tuning fork and a bowl of water to see the vibrations.

  • Year 2

    Year 2 have been making Wanted posters to try and catch the terrible criminal ‘Coronavirus!’.

    We have also been reading ‘Here we are’ and writing poems about things that are fast and slow in our world.
