We have some surprise visitors in the school pond this morning!
Year 1 had a fantastic time at The Forest School last Thursday!
We made some enchanted creatures and built houses for them to live in!
We also did ‘Big Art’ with natural materials found in the forest.
The children enjoyed making clay faces and sticking them to the trees!
The favourite part of the day seemed to be the popcorn making!!

We have been having increasing problems with getting children into school particularly down the path into Key Stage 2 as classes and parents have been walking down the same path at the start of the day. Starting after half term we are going to open the doors at 8.40am and the children can walk straight into school rather than lining up on the playground. We will then lock the doors at 8.45am prompt. Parents will not be allowed into the corridors or classrooms at the start of the day to avoid congestion. If you need to give a message to a teacher could you please come in to the office at 8.30am to either leave a message or request to see the teacher but please bear in mind they will be in class from 8.40am. We feel this will be a safer and more efficient way to get children into school in the morning. Teachers are always available at the end of the day to discuss issues with parents and will have more time anyway.
The Hatchell Wood Choir had a fantastic time at the Young Voices Concert on Wednesday 21st January. They were a credit to the school, singing superbly with one of the largest school choirs in the world. Thank you to Mrs SNow and Miss Bellis who organized the choir and to Mrs Kennedy who came with us on the day.
