Mr Mayer's News


As we break for the Christmas holidays please can I ask that you continue to listen to your children read and that you continue to enjoy reading books with them.

Learning to read and understand what they’ve read will be the most important thing they ever learn to do. Just 5 minutes a day will make a big difference to your child’s life chances

If you want to know more about reading at Hungerford Primary please see your child’s class teacher.

We are still on the lookout for any adults who are available to read with children. If you or someone you know would like to come in and listen and read with some children that would be so appreciated Please contact your child’s class teacher or the office if you are able to help.

Christmas Performances

I hope that you were able to see at least one of our Christmas productions during the last few weeks. The children were fantastic & the staff worked so hard to ensure all performances went without a hitch!

Staff News

Sadly we will be saying goodbye today to Mrs Haines, Miss Armstrong and Mrs East all of whom have made a massive contribution to the school during their time here.

We would like to thank them for everything they have done for the children of Hungerford Primary School and wish them happiness and success in the future.

At this time we would also like to welcome Mr Smith, Mrs Cath, Mrs Maynard and Mrs Seaward to our school. They have all been in to meet their new classes and are all really looking forward to starting in January.

Mrs Monroe, our new Higher Level Teaching Assistant joined us a week ago and already feels like she is part of the team. Mrs Monroe will be teaching in every class so will get to know all the children very quickly I’m sure.

Community Choir Singing

A big thank you and well done to Mrs Smith and the school choir who have entertained crowds in Hungerford over the last few weeks with their lovely Christmas singing. A lot ofhard work and practise went into making them sound so beautiful. Lots of people commented on how amazing the quality of singing was. We are very proud of you all!

Shelter Box Charity appeal

Thanks to every one of you that supported our charity appeal. Your donations have contributed to us achieving our target for the year by Christmas. The total your generosity has raised so far this year is:


This means that we can already afford to buy one fully equipped Shelter box which will help to save the lives of up to 10 people who have lost their homes…and we are well on the way towards a second. We will hope to achieve this by July 2018.

Well done! You are amazing!

Robin's Christmas Sale

Robins Sale(1)

Well done to the children in Robin’s class who sold Christmas decorations they had made and raised £47 towards the upkeep of Tom and Russell, our school rabbits.

Parental Help with school premises

Thanks to Sarah Young for all her voluntary help with getting the school grounds tidied up. It has made a big difference. If anyone else has some time to spare and would like to help in school in any way please contact the school office.

…And finally on behalf of everyone at Hungerford Primary School, I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope you have a wonderful New Year.
