Holiday art work

Some of our younger pupils have sent in some lovely art and craft work they created over the holidays – thank you to Daphne, Vera, Agata and Maisy! You can see more details on the pictures. 
Well done all the children; we hope you enjoyed doing these as much as we have liked seeing them!

Daphne (Nursery Yellow) enjoyed being creative every day over the holidays, making many lovely things. Inspired by Spring, she made these ‘Springtime Flower Pictures’ using pens, finger paints, paints and glitter (with a little help for the tricky bits!).

Here we have two felt rabbits made by Maisy (Year  6), who received some sewing kits for Christmas.  Check out the dog she made, too, in the next picture!

Vera (Nursery Yellow) and big sister Agata (Year 2) have some of their holiday artwork on display at home.  The first picture on the on the left is Vera’s first work produced completely on her own and includes 3D elements; the black penguin is also hers, and the other two pictures were done by Agata.

Twelfth Night

Today is officially the last day of Christmas – the twelfth night, also known as the Epiphany. In the Christian calendar this marks a visit to the child Jesus by The Magi (the three Kings, or Wise Men). The word ‘Epiphany’ comes from Greek and means ‘manifestation’.

We thought you might like to have another look at our own little Magi, from both our 2017 and some previous nativity productions!

Artwork wanted!

Calling all our our creative pupils! If you have been busy painting, drawing or making something over the holidays – or fancy doing something over the weekend –  why not take a photo and email it to me at marketing@hohs.co.uk ?

I will publish the best ones on the blog – and there will be a small prize waiting at the start of term!

Saying farewell to our ‘gappies’

By the time this post is seen by Courtney, Ashley and Izzy, the snow will be a distant memory to them, as they have now returned to their homes in Australia and South Africa. The end of term meant saying fond farewells to this lovely trio, who, as our gap year tutors, were so much a part of our school family and helped in so many different ways in the year they spent with us.  We wish the girls every success and happiness for the future!

Year 1 decorations

We featured some pictures of Year 1 in the process of making Christmas table decorations a couple of weeks ago…and thought it was time we showed you the finished articles…we are sure they have been gracing the tables at home this week!

Year 4 soft touch!

Year 4 spent some careful hours in their craft lessons last half term making these beautiful cushions…we couldn’t show them before because they were being wrapped up for Christmas presents. We are sure the lucky recipients loved them!

Let it snow!

It’s snowing here today and Year 1 went outside at lunchtime to have a good look and feel! Our lovely gap year tutors from Australia and South Africa were quite impressed, too.
