Events at Howe Dell

Cultural Capital Week Music Festival

What a beautifully sunny day it was for our first ever Music Festival. The whole school came together at last to watch performance after brilliant performance. Well done to all of the children who took part, congratulations to our Howe Dell's Got Talent winner Rene and thank you to Gemma our visiting Opera Singer.

Another Lockdown, another change of provision, but always with children's learning and wellbeing central to that experience

Sparkle and Shine!

A virtual performance as our gift to the wider Howe Dell family, despite COVID-19 restrictions.

Thank you to all staff and children who against the COVID-19 restrictions, have managed to create a short presentation including every child who can be filmed and is celebrating Christmas with us. Whilst children and class based staff will watch the performances in class bubbles at 9.30am on Thursday 10th December, this is available for all non class based staff to watch socially distanced in the Hall.

Furthermore, as our virtual Christmas gift to a wider audience, this is safely able to be accessed from the following link by parents, governors and those who would normally have come to site to enjoy our 7 usual productions at this time of year.


I hope this is enjoyed in the sentiment it is made: a positive end to 2020 for all. Thanks to all staff and children for their creativity and resilience with this, including Mr Mason who has compiled the final version.

COVID-19 stopped much of what we consider normal life and learning, but as many continue to learn from resources on the website and challenges on Twitter, those 104 children on site during June and 23 spaces filled daily in Day Care meant this was a positive experience for our Howe Dell family.

Great Sports Day, amazing support from families and excellent teamwork. Well done Sports Leaders for brilliant work setting up races and congratulations to RED Champions!

Christmas at Howe Dell included Christmas Shopping Day led by our PSA, 6 performances around the traditional Christmas story including our 2 KS2 Christingle events. Parties and Christmas Dinner still to come!

To mark 8 years at the Runway and celebrate the strong bonds with North Hatfield, Howe Dell Children Centre opened it's doors to the community it has served to positively for 8 years. Hundreds including  local Councillors, babies, toddlers, parents, grandparents and carers danced alongside Bollywood dancers, ate a banquet of international food and celebrated 8 successful years before handing over the leadership to  Birchwood Hub  Nursery as Lead Agency for Howe Dell, Birchwood and De Havilland.

A huge thank you to Mel Chandairia for a stunning cake and so much preparation behind the scenes by staff and volunteers.
