Wow! What an incredible week we have had here at Galley Hill. Our incredible poppy display has been visited by our local MP, Mike Penning, and the Mayor of Dacorum, Councillor Robert Mclean. As well as this, it has been a social media hit, talked about on Heart radio and been on the front cover of the Gazette. We are very proud of all of the children for their hard work and for their understanding of what the poppy represents and why this is so important. All of the children who have spoken to our visitors have been an absolute credit to our school. Of course, we also need to say an ENORMOUS thank you to Mrs. Dance who organised the project and spent hours working on it.

We will remember them.

Year 3 4 Anti-bullying week

In Year’s 3 & 4 lesson today the children have been discussing the theme of this year’s anti-bullying week which is the  Power for Good.



They have learnt that online bullying we are all different and that our differences should be celebrated and that we can all make a difference to stop bullying and to create a safer and more respectful online world. 

They have added their thoughts to a collaborative wall.
