Reception assembly – the pictures!

Yesterday’s class assembly by our confident little Reception pupils was a delight, as already reported. Here, now, are some more pictures from the performance. You can also see some of their colourful artwork, including brightly painted Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired giants! Thank you once again to all the parents, grandparents and family members who came – we hope you all enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and share in some of their achievements. It is great to see their growing confidence in performing and learning lines!

Reception show us how beans grow!

What makes a little bean grow into a big, healthy plant? Our Reception pupils know – and they told us all about it in a wonderful assembly this morning. Look out for more photos and a report coming soon. Meanwhile, here is a lovely picture of the children on stage, showing how their confidence is growing, and showing off the giant paintings they had done!

Thank you to all the parents who came – we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and showcasing some of their achievements. Well done everyone!

Our busy Nursery bees

Our Nursery children have been looking at bees this week.  We have made some hand print painted bees and sung some bee songs.  We looked at the busy work bees do making honey. And we finished off the week by looking at the school bee hive and having a honey sandwich picnic!

Congratulations to the Windsors from all at HOHS!

We would like to wish Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a wonderful wedding day today – and a very happy future together.  Our Year 1 pupils used the occasion to hone their crafting and artistic skills and create some lovely wedding invitations…did you get one?!

Year 1 bring us to our senses!

Tuesday’s class assembly from Year 1 was a real treat – a feast of art, poetry, music and confident performance!  The audience sat in ‘moonlight’ as the performance began, with a stunning NASA moon photograph backdrop, tiny candles on the stage and ‘Clair de Lune’ (‘Light of the Moon’) by Debussy playing.  The children have been exploring their five senses, and showed us some beautiful moonlit landscapes they had been inspired to paint.  Then they took us back 130 years to a seaside town in Denmark to introduce us to  Peter Krøyer and his wife Marie,  together with Michael Ancher,  his wife Anna and their daughter Helga, a group of artists who displayed their paintings in Brøndum’s Hotel.  Helga inherited the hotel, which is still running today! The audience were invited to see the pictures and even given tickets to the exhibition. Finally, we were treated to a sweet rendition of Moon River and a poem.

Thank you to all the parents and family members who came to see the assembly and share some proud moments with the children afterwards. Enjoy the gallery!

Year 1 preparing for class assembly

We couldn’t resist sharing this picture: a cheeky,  sneaky preview of Year 1’s class assembly next Tuesday. It shows Oliver getting into role as Peter Krøyer, a 19th Century Danish impressionist who lived in Skagen, Jutland, Denmark. All parents are welcome to join us on Tuesday morning in The Barn from 8.50am to see the children in action – and find out more about this fascinating artist!
