Wow Week!

Dear HHS Parents,

We have all enjoyed an exciting WOW week of learning – our school value of Conservation influenced all our lessons! Throughout the week, the children have enjoyed a range of exciting, engaging and immersive activities to inspire a passion for conservation and a love for learning. Thank you to all the teachers who have put vast amounts of effort into planning, preparing, and delivering WOW week. 

As our Friday assembly concluded, it was evident that this approach to learning has embedded a wide range of linked skills and knowledge. Today, our class teachers nominated an Eco-Warrior from each class for their contribution towards this week’s learning – we have some budding David Attenboroughs within our school community. Those chosen children in Years 1&2 will form our Eco-Warrior committee, who will work with our Conservation Lead, Chris Chand, to positively impact conservation at Hampstead Hill School. Much like our School Council, children will get an opportunity to join every half-term.

I hope you have enjoyed the images we have shared on HomeRun throughout the week. Please continue the children’s learning into the weekend and let them take you on a nature walk. Thank you for once again supporting the school’s initiatives.

The learning for us all does not stop there – coming up…

Monday 28th February – Reading Workshop

A parent workshop which aims to inform you about our comprehensive reading programme, share the objectives/goals for each year group, present our new phonics scheme and provide you with guidance to encourage progress at home.

Thursday 3rd March – World Book Day

Thank you to the many parents joining us to share a story in your mother tongues. It is important to us that our children feel represented at school.

WB Monday 14th March – Virtual Reality Week

Throughout the week, our children will enjoy lessons using virtual reality headsets. The headsets will inspire the children’s English creative writing and they will visit different corners of the globe in our Topic lessons.

Once again, thank you for your support with the children’s learning.

With best wishes,

Ross Montague
