Busy Nursery days!

Everyone has been quickly getting back into the swing of school in our Nursery classes this week, and on Thursday the roving camera spotted children doing all kinds of
interesting things…identifying animals, role-playing, sponge painting, cutting-out-and-sticking and playing imaginative games together.

King’s Camps opening ceremony news

On Monday 22nd January at 1.00pm, there will be an opening ceremony to mark the partnership between HOHS and Kings Camps, who are running our holiday
activity weeks from Easter this year.

After the ceremony, which will feature a special guest appearance by Norwich City legend Wesley Hoolahan (father of Noah and Lottie, Year 1 and Reception), there will be fun, free activity sessions in the sports hall for all our Years 1-6 pupils. Parents – please ensure your child has full PE kit with them that day (we will remind you nearer the time, too!)

Parents of Years 1-6 pupils are invited to attend the ceremony and come and watch the activity sessions but please note there will be limited spaces in the sports hall.

Book your HOHS King’s Camps Weeks – and take a friend for free at Easter!

Parents – exciting news! You can now book your child/children in for the Easter and/or summer Kings Camps activity weeks at HOHS. We are especially pleased to tell you that, for the Easter week only (April 9th-13th), we have a ‘Bring a Friend for Free’ offer. So if you have two children, the second will be able to attend at no cost – and if you are bringing a friend rather than a sibling, you can share the cost between you. Please note that although there is a booking form online at the Kings Camps website, to take advantage of this special offer you will need to book by phone. Here’s how:

For siblings: Call 0114 263 2160 and you can make one booking over the phone.
To bring a friend: Call 0114 263 2160 and book your own child in. Tell the Kings Camps staff member the name of the additional child you will be bringing. Then ask their parent to call the same number to confirm the free booking, and arrange the cost share between yourselves!

After Easter, we will give you a discount code – for our HOHS parents only – for 10% off your summer and subsequent bookings.

On the blog tomorrow: news of our summer camps’ Grand Opening – with special guest appearance from Norwich City legend Wesley Hoolahan!
