Thank you to Active Surrey who came into school today to coach our Folly Hill sports leaders. They now have so many ideas to help them fulfil their roles.


Thank you to the mystery readers who have been into school so far this term. If you would like to come and read to the children then please contact their class teacher.


It's been a busy first week back since half term. We've enjoyed hot chocolate and songs around the campfire, a skipping workshop and the return of the mystery reader.

After School Club have been busy painting, stuffing and sticking to create the Folly Hill entry to the Farnham Fireworks & Torchlit Procession guy competition. Say hello to Peter Rabbit.


Our new Monthly Challenge display board is ready for all the photos and pieces of learning that the children have completed at home . Each Monthly Challenge is a Life Skill which should be useful to the children from now on.
Remember - a Monthly Challenge isn't just for a month, it is for life 🙂
(Well done to Marina for being the first to complete the challenge. )


We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Is there a better way to start the term? Sunshine class made lots of discoveries on their bear hunt and topped it off with bear yoga.

Have you read a book in an unusual place during the holidays? If so, please send your new class teacher a photo and we can add it onto the school display.


The welly shed will be open from 8-4 every week day - please come and help yourself to a new pair of school wellies.

All good things must come to an end. Goodbye Mrs Farr. Thank you for everything you have done for Folly Hill over the last 18 years. We will miss you more than we can say. Keep smiling, keep singing and enjoy your retirement. Jai Ho!


To mark a successful year in post, the Folly Hill School Council had a tea party. We look forward to welcoming a new school council in the Autumn term.

Assembly today was a Q&A session with Coach Katie who is travelling in Australia in her campervan. There were some great questions from our Folly Hill children and it was lovely to hear all about Coach Katie's adventures so far.


It was great to welcome author, Eloise Bonner, into Sunshine class today. She read her book, Through Starburst Eyes, which was inspired by her son, Alfie, who has Williams Syndrome. Please find the link below if you would like to buy a copy. Alfie enjoyed exploring Sunshine class.


As you all know it's been Folly Hill's 50th birthday this year - we may have mentioned it once or twice!

We set ourselves a challenge in September to have 50 visitors/trips throughout the year. We have had enjoyed some wonderful experiences including authors, dog agility, theatre, healthcare workers, an athlete, lots of animals, a science workshop, magic show, choir workshop, an artist...the list goes on and on.

Our 50th visitor was very special as it was Mrs Green, the previous head, who did an assembly to the children about her time at Folly Hill. The visitors are still coming and we are looking forward to welcoming a poet next week.

We were thrilled to welcome Adrian Patrick, Commonwealth Games gold medalist into school this week. Adrian is a former sprinter who specialised in the 400 metres. He did a workout with each class and then did a talk and a Q&A session. What a fabulous, fun, fit way to spend the morning.


Champions Day was great fun at Holly Lodge today. Well done to the children who represented Folly Hill - you are all champions.


Well done to the Sunshine children who took part in the athletics afternoon at St Peter's school yesterday. Thanks to St Peter's for hosting and especially to the Year 6 Sports Leaders - you were a credit to the school.

Wow. What a wonderful day. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces, old and new. Thank you to the Friends for organising such a memorable event, to the Golden committee for collating a brilliant memory room and to everyone who popped by to say hello and celebrate our 50th birthday. Thank you😀


A huge thank you to Susie Lidstone for letting Sunshine Class come and visit her studio this afternoon. The children loved it and have been inspired to look more closely at buildings and flowers😊


Why do 50km when you can do 62?!
The Folly Hill Flyers had a successful day out which included bacon butties, cake and ice cream!
They are a bit achy today but all back in school (possibly planning the next trip 😉)

Thank you to everyone who came to enjoy sports day with us. We hope you loved it as much as we did. The children were amazing! A special mention to the Y10 PE students from Farnham Heath End School who set up some wonderful sporting activities for us in the morning. They were a joy to have around, a credit to themselves and their school.


This intrepid trio are cycling the Downs Link Way on Tuesday for their 50k challenge. Remember to email in with your 50 challenges. We love seeing them.

Any suggestions for a team name?


It's always fun and interesting welcoming 'Open The Book' into our assemblies.
