Year 6 Time and Tide visit

Year 6 pupils enjoyed a fantastic trip today to the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth. Watch this space for a full report but in the meantime, here are the children, with Miss Elgood and Mr Peace, just back and still with their 1940s gas masks and evacuation labels!

U14 and U16 badminton v Thorpe St Andrew High School

This evening saw both our U14 and U16 badminton teams play a strong Thorpe St Andrew side. Although both teams suffered defeats, with the final scores being 6-3 and 5-4 respectively, there were some notable successes, with special mention going to Harriet and Mia who won all of their matches (again!). My thanks  to Rebekah who stepped in to play in Izzy’s absence.

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.
