Our ‘stars’ this week are…

Star-of-weekOur most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention by Mr Peace in this morning’s Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Edward B (Nursery Yellow) for progressing well in swimming and jumping into the pool for the first time. Edward’s teacher says he is a joy to have in the class!

Millie A (Reception), for the diary she made over the Easter holiday, with beautiful pictures, writing and photographs.

Charlie Mc (Year 1), for his great Easter holiday homework. Charlie completed every bit of the work on senses for science with lovely writing and presentation.

Sophia S (Year 2) for excellent comments and thought in science and great work on fractions in her maths lessons.

Adam S and Chloe T  (Year 4) for excellent work on poetry! Chloe made an entire booklet on limericks and Adam wrote an impressive limerick during the lesson.

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! Who will it be next week?

An outdoors sort of day at HOHS!

What a wonderful, warm day we have had today! The children took the opportunity to spend as much time as possible outside in our lovely gardens and play areas. We hope the weather will stay summery this week, but of course it is important that the children are well protected with sunscreen and their named sun hats. Parents –  please check that they have them for school tomorrow – and every day when it is warm –  so that they can all enjoy break time and sports without risk of burning. We will make sure everyone has plenty to drink!

Year 1’s special visitor

This week in Year 1, Mrs Bird is joined by Laura Watkinson, who is currently studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at UEA in preparation for a teaching career. Miss Watkinson has undertaken longer placements in different kinds of schools during her year at UEA and told us she is very happy to be spending her final classroom-based week with our lovely Year 1 group, observing and helping Mrs Bird in a variety of lessons and activities. She will have plenty of adventures to share with the children, having spent some years travelling the world as a cabin crew member for Virgin Atlantic since graduating with a humanities degree from the University of Kent seven years ago.

Welcome Back

A very warm welcome back to school to all our day pupils, boarders, parents and staff! Mr Crump led the seniors in an assembly this morning before the girls started lessons in what will be an important exam term for many. The younger pupils, meanwhile,  have had an exciting morning learning and catching up with their friends and have just enjoyed their tasty lunch before going off to play outside. There are spring flowers around the grounds and the sun seems to be trying to shine to prove the point that this is, after all, the summer term!
